Mother’s Day gift idea: Hanging planter gift basket

I put myself through college by making gift baskets for the real estate industry. It was something fun that I could do at home after work. It allowed me to stay creative and do something fun. However, it’s been years (years!!) since I’ve created one, so I thought it would be perfect to create a gift basket that any mom would like this Mother’s Day – a hanging planter gift basket.

How to assemble a hanging planter gift basket on a budget

This hanging planter gift basket is perfect for everyone because all you really need is water and dirt. I purchased most of the items at Big Lots because I wanted it to be very budget-friendly.
