Sweet & Simple Mother’s Day Garden Gift Basket

Good day friends!  How is your weekend going?  We’re enjoying a sunny one…although the wind will send you flying half across the country.  But we can’t complain, as there’s no snow in the forecast, and we were able to get out into the yard!  Spring has indeed sprung here!  And May is around the corner…I’m feeling the relief!

And with May comes Mother’s Day!  Do you have plans for Mother’s Day?  Gift ideas?

Mother’s Day gifts are so easy to give and wonderful to receive!  If you have a special gardener in your family this Sweet & Simple Mother’s Day Garden Gift Basket would be perfect to give!

This garden themed gift is pretty and fun!

I love gardening so much.  Aside from the kitchen, the garden is my happy place.
So for me, a garden themed gift is perfection!  I put this gift basket together with some of the things that I love, and maybe your Mom will too!

What I included in my gift basket:

Flower Pot
A flower pot is a great container to hold this gift because your Mom can use it this gardening season!

Set of Gardening Tools
I found this pretty pink set at WalMart, for less than $5.

Seeds or Bulbs
Make sure to buy seeds that will grow in your region.  In my basket I included Sweet Pea seeds and Gladiola bulbs.

Package of Seed Markers
I included a small package of plastic seed markers which always come in handy in the garden.

Gardening Magazine and/or Subscription
Everyone loves a great magazine to read!  Gardening magazines are great for gardening tips & ideas.

Coconut Sugar Scrub
This homemade sugar scrub is great for garden-weary hands.  Just 2 ingredients!  Coconut oil and sugar.  You can find the recipe for this amazing scrub in my Coconut Sugar Scrub post.

 

Gift giving doesn’t have to be stressful and expensive.
Thoughtful and simple presents are great, and always appreciated!

Have an inspired day!

The ground is too wet yet to do anything in the Gardens, however there is always something to keep busy with here. xx
