Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

The Garden Shop proudly presents our collection of ideas for this year’s Mother’s Day gifts, which our staff members have thoughtfully selected for you.

Bon Secours Mother’s Day Weekend Celebration is just around the corner, and perhaps you are thinking about what to give to the wonderful and amazing moms in your life. The Garden Shop understands that every mom is special in her own way, so, for the occasion, we offer a wide range of unique, handcrafted, and earth-friendly items inspired by Mother Nature’s cosmic beauty. If you are still thinking about a thoughtful way to tell the person who raised you how much you love her, treat your mom (or special caregiver) to a visit at the Garden when spring is at its peak, stroll through Butterflies LIVE! with her and stop by the Shop to get her something as special as she is. Because celebrating motherhood with Mother Nature just makes sense.

Here are just a few of our favorite Mother’s Day gifts, carefully sourced and selected by our staff members to honor moms and all that they do, with extraordinary strength, endless patience, and infinite love.

A blue Bud Vase made from botanicals one of our favorite gift ideas for mom.

Bud Vase: In her Shenandoah Valley studio, artist Neena Jhaveri presses fresh flowers and herbs into the wet clay of her hand-built pottery. The botanicals burn away in the fire of her kiln, leaving a lasting impression that she fills with interpretive colored glazes. They are nature’s gifts transformed into functional works of art. Food safe, dishwasher and microwave safe, each piece is unique and signed by the artist. $13.50

Pewter Bracelet_Mother's Day

Pewter Bracelet: The wide band of a pewter cuff bracelet blooms in a flower-of-the month pattern, nature’s symbols of the things you love most about your mom. Wrap her wrist in its engraved vintage motif and she’ll wear it to celebrate Mother’s Day every day. Hand cast in Maryland, the name of the month is inscribed inside. $24.95

How Many Peas in Your Pod? Just one of many perfect Mother's Day gift ideas

How Many Peas in Your Pod? Symbolic siblings all in a row, snuggling together in a sterling silver pod. Freshwater pearls, each one representing a member of your family, are hand-picked, tucked into their own hand-cast pod and decorated with delicate leaves and spiral tendrils. It’s a work of art and a fanciful family heirloom inspired by Mother Nature’s whimsy. Choose 1,2,3 or 4 pearls. (4 pearls is $98.)

It’s very likely that you will find her somewhere in the Garden crouching on the ground and looking through her camera lens for some good shots. When she is not taking pictures, she may also be mistaken for a wandering child. Don’t worry, she’s not lost, just deep in thoughts over stories to tell about all these gorgeous flowers.
