70th Birthday Gift Baskets for Women
A gift basket is always a wonderful gift, no matter how old you are! They're easy to order online and send directly to your Mom. If you need a last minute gift, you can usually have a basket sent the next day.
My top pick for ordering gift baskets online is GiftTree. They offer impressive gift baskets and towers in all prices, ranging from under $25 to well over $300. So they're a marvelous choice for both budget picks and luxury gifts.
They also feature customer reviews, so it's easy to see what people have actually used the service have to say about it.
One of the best features, however, is that you can order a personalized ribbon with many of their gift baskets (it does cost a bit extra). Imagine how thrilled Mom will be to see your own unique Happy Birthday message imprinted on the ribbon!

People are always impressed by personalized gifts - it means that you've gone an extra step in choosing a present that's just for them!
Whenever I'm shopping for customized gifts, my first stop is always Personalization Mall. They have hundreds of personalized gifts just for birthdays (their entire catalog runs into the thousands). Many of their items can be personalized with your own unique message or poem, not just a name.

Many of their gifts can ship in just 1 or 2 days, so it's a marvelous choice for a last-minute gift (you'll have to pay for express shipping).
They also offer customer reviews - and many of their customers have uploaded pictures of they way they personalized their presents, which is a great way to get inspiration.
My favorite part, however, is that you can preview your personalized gift online before you place your order! That way you'll know exactly how it's going to look, and you'll be able to make any necessary changes.
And here's another little tip if you're looking for quotes or poems for Mom's 70th birthday...check out any of their items that feature a poem (you can find them here.) Just click on any product, and then click the "View Choices" button on the Choose Your Poem option.
They will then show you a selection of pre-written poems and quotes - a wonderful way to be inspired when writing your own message to Mom. Each product has different poems, so there's quite a few for you to choose from.
