People tend to think of gift baskets as cop-outs. Cousins of the gift card, these pre-arranged goodie assortments require relatively little time or effort to acquire and can feel impersonal. However, like those teeny plasticized certificates-which could hold a trip to a tropical island or front row seats at Beyoncé's next gig-gift baskets should not be underestimated. First of all, who doesn't love the idea of a gift that literally keeps on giving, since it's got so many components? And we're not talking quantity over quality here. As with any present, the formula for finding the perfect basket is one part truly knowing the recipient's tastes, one part knowing where to look.

As to the latter half, we've got you covered. All you've got to do is choose the one that best suits the woman who gave you life. Click through the slideshow above for Mother's Day gift basket ideas that blow the traditional wine and cheese combo out of the water.
