Mother’s Day is one of my favorite holidays because it brings my family together for fantastic food and company in (usually) nice weather. There’s nothing I love more than enjoying a great meal outside with the people I care about most.
I have a close relationship with my mom, and some years I struggle to come up with unique Mother’s Day gifts that accurately express how much I appreciate her. Flowers, candy, a nice card. My mom is always grateful, but I like to surprise her with something really special (she deserves it!).
That’s why I’ve created this list of unique Mother’s Day gifts that will surely be a hit with your mom, aunt, grandmother—or whoever deserves your affection!
Gardening Tools: Does Mom dream of cultivating a garden, but lack the proper tools to make it a reality? A tool bag or carrying case full of gardening tools (don’t forget the knee pad!) and some organic seed packets may be the catalyst for getting her out in the garden. Pair the kit with a wide-brimmed sun hat and some pretty gardening gloves, and offer to spend a day helping her prepare the garden beds.
Herb Tower: If Mom lives in a city or needs to conserve space, an herb tower is a great way for her to grow herbs indoors or on a balcony. She won’t have to buy fresh herbs from the grocery store anymore, and the tower will provide a nice splash of greenery in her living space. A small watering can and herb seedlings would make a nice accompaniment for this gift.
Teatulia Tea Gift Set: Tea makes a lovely present, and I’m a big fan of Teatulia. Their organic tea gift sets are 20% off with promo code LOVEMOM through May 14. Mom will enjoy sipping a special blend, while having some much-need “me time.”
About the Table Gift Certificate: Give Mom a break from cooking with a gift certificate for personal chef services with About the Table.* From beef stroganoff to spinach and butternut squash lasagna, our menus are customizable and gift certificates are available in any amount. And what home chef doesn’t appreciate a from-scratch meal made just for them? Take a peek at our sample menus here.
