Mother’s Day is fast approaching. Of course, flowers and chocolates are the first go-to gift idea to show your appreciation, but that’s been done countless times before. Brighten up your mum’s day and make your present extra special with a memorable gift for the garden.
Add structure and style to the garden with a steel plant stake. These dual-purpose plant stakes not only support plants but make quite the feature in the garden when topped with birds, flowers or even with a decorative armillary sphere and arrow. The National Trust have quite a selection, so you’ll be sure to find something in keeping with your mum’s personal taste and style.
This lovely nostalgic gift will definitely pull on some heart strings. Waitrose and Partners have this great little gifting tin that includes everything she’ll need to make her own cards and pictures from the flowers in her own garden. A great gift for a creative mum or one who loves nature trails, flowers and foliage.
There are plenty of these on the market but if you’re feeling creative yourself, you can easily create one bespoke to your mum. Get a hamper basket along with some shredded paper filling and start adding items to the basket. If your mum is a gardener, she’ll appreciate products such as hand balm and sugar scrubs to keep her hands soft. Add extra effort with other little garden related gestures that go with the theme, such as pretty gardening gloves and deadheading snips.
Gin is all the rage at the minute, and if your mum is a gin lover, these botanical gins from the Old Curiosity Secret Garden distillery are bound to impress. Their pretty, traditional style labelling and apothecary style bottles contain all-natural colourful gin. Perfect as a gift alone or in mini bottles of three.
Show Garden Experience
Does your mum love to watch the Chelsea Flower Show on TV every year? If so, treat her to some RHS vouchers or tickets so she can go and experience the show for herself. Chelsea Flower Show is on at the end of May, which is a great time of the year to explore what this year’s designers have created. It’s an experience she’ll never forget.
