Top 10 Gift Picks for Mother’s Day
It’s that time of year again; Mother’s Day is right around the corner! Instead of waiting until the last minute to pick something up, this year give that special woman (or women) in your life gifts that will WOW. Whether you choose a living or non-living gift, you are sure to enhance moms outdoor living space that will remind her of you and your thoughtfulness for years to come!
We rounded up our top 10 picks for Mother’s Day gift ideas to make your shopping easier:
1. Hanging Baskets
Add an instant pop of color to mom’s porch or patio with a hanging basket! Hanging baskets are the perfect gift for those who don’t have a lot of room in their garden beds, or live in a smaller home. Whatever her favorite color or bloom is, we’ve got it. There are loads of different varieties and sizes at our nursery. From petunias to begonias, you can be sure that this is a gift that mom will love!
2. Flowering Shrubs
Flowering Shrubs, such as roses and hydrangeas, make stunning statements wherever they are planted. Roses are a popular choice for a Mother’s Day gift, but instead of cut roses, consider tea, floribunda, or David Austin roses. This way she will have flowers all spring and summer long for years to come!
Hydrangeas are also a popular choice and we have tons of options to choose from. With their large, dramatic blooms, these beauties are a site to see. Like roses, they also make excellent cut flowers that will dry beautifully!
Nothing says ‘it’s summertime’ quite like tropical plants such as palms or canna lilies. They add vibrance and unique texture to any landscape or patio space. Although tropicals are considered annuals in this region, many of them can be brought inside once temperatures drop and brought back outside the next year. This gift brings warm, summery vibes all year long!
4. Flowering Perennials
Buy her the flower arrangement that will come back year after year. Perennials like peonies, dianthus, and daylilies make for excellent cut flower arrangements. These blooms will be fresher and more fragrant than any store-bought ones you could give her. All bloom season long she will have fresh bouquets all thanks to you!
5. Outdoor Furniture
Let mom sit down and relax on Mother’s Day and every day after! Pick her up a beautiful set of Adirondack chairs or garden benches so she can sit in comfort while enjoying the splendor of the outdoor oasis she created.

6. Garden Statuary
No garden is complete without statuary to add that special personal touch. Giving mom the gift of a guardian angel, guard dog, or soldier will show her that her garden is protected.
For a more whimsical touch, add some of our garden sayings and other fun animal options to her flower beds. Show mom that you understand her taste and humor with statues that remind you of her!
For the best combination, choose a mixture of both to make her feel safe and whimsical. No matter which statues you choose, they all provide a great reminder to your mother that you are thinking about her.
7. Gardening Tools
Get your mother excited to start her garden by picking her up some new tools. Grab her a new hand rake, trowel, and pruning shears so that she can plant all of the new perennials, shrubs, and tropicals you got her! Make her life easier by giving her the tools she needs for gardening success.
