Sometimes (OK, most of the time) it’s best to let the experts do the heavy lifting for you. Nowhere is this more applicable than with Mother’s Day gift baskets. Of course you can always go with flowers, which are a guaranteed home run, but gift baskets for mom are another foolproof way of making your partner happy and giving her what she wants.

“Gift baskets are one of the most versatile options when it comes to gift-giving,” says Sara Skirboll, the resident gift-giving guru at RetailMeNot.

“If your mom loves to cook, find baskets that incorporate recipes, cook books or new gadgets to use in the kitchen,” Skirboll, a mom herself, says. “If she needs a break from her busy life, try finding a basket that makes her bathroom into an at-home spa.”

Gift baskets do the thinking for you. Plus, they’re beautifully packaged. All you need is a general theme and basic knowledge of what she’s into. And the pros do the rest.
