5 Great Gifts for Mother’s Day
Now here we are, the week before Mother’s Day. If you’re like me and need help, here are 5 gift ideas from Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden’s Garden Shop. It’s open Monday – Saturday, 10 a.m. – 5 p.m., and Sundays, noon – 5 p.m.
1. Garden Marker Spoons; $13.95
Spoons upcycled as garden markers with special messages, such as “I Love Mom” and “Mom’s Garden.” Handcrafted in California by Monkeys Always Look.
2. Mom’s Little Vase; $20
As the accompanying card reminds us, “some of the most beautiful flowers we receive are not from a florist, but are offered by small, grubby hands.” These little vases are made in the USA; handblown by Henrietta Glass Studio in Providence, RI.
4. Enamel & Crystal Stretch Bracelet; $26.95
Featuring a flower motif and beautiful colors to go with everything. By Rain Jewelry.
Comic Latin for the Witty Gardener; $10.99
For moms with a sense of humor! Plant markers with “Latin” names: Mudus Alloverus, Costa Fortunuii and Flora Incognito. (Hey, I think I have some of those plants in my garden!) By Amaranth Stoneware.
If you’re still looking for more, there’s also Garden Membership, which allows mom to visit Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden and many reciprocal gardens year-round for FREE. Garden Memberships can be purchased online today; could it be any easier?
The Garden’s Mother’s Day Weekend Celebration (May 8 – 10, 2015) presented by Patient First also provides a great opportunity to spend quality time with mom. Whether it’s tours of historic Bloemendaal House on Friday, activities in the Children’s Garden on Saturday, or a concert on Sunday, you can pick the best experience for your mom and all activities are included in regular Garden admission. The Butterflies LIVE! exhibit is open daily, too. Happy Mother’s Day!
