Published on February 25th 2021

It’s safe to say that the last year, in particular, has made us appreciate our loved ones and everything they do for us more than ever.
Although many of us won’t be spending Mother’s Day with family and friends this year, there is still an opportunity to shower our close ones with love, whether that's through video calls, presents or, plants of course!
Whether they're a gardener or not, we've handpicked some of our favourite gift ideas to help put a smile on their face-- all courtesy of independent businesses across the UK (you can thank us later!).

The Best Gift Ideas for the Houseplant Obsessed

1) Maginficant Monsteras
Have they just started to dip their toe in the water when it comes to the world of houseplants? If so, we think they'd love a Monstera deliciosa, otherwise known as the Swiss Cheese Plant! Swiss Cheese Plants are easy to look after, so they'll forgive you if they've missed a watering. Likewise, Monstera leaves really are stunning, which no urban jungle is complete without.

2) Other houseplants we love right now
While we're on the topic of easy-care plants, we'll suggest a few more of our favourites that we love. Chinese Money Plants, ZZs and Peace Lilies are super relaxed when it comes to caring for them.

3) Pretty Prayer Plants
Maybe your mum has been into houseplants for a while now. If so, we think she'd love a stylish and elegant-looking Prayer Plant!
We have a lot of love for Prayer Plants. Each species and variety has beautiful stripey, vibrant foliage. Prayer plants require moderate watering and should be placed somewhere, which receives indirect light. In other words, don't leave them in the sun all day!

4) Houseplant care essentials
Why not pair your chosen plant with a rose gold mister with a matching indoor watering can (cute!). Likewise, help them keep their plants strong and healthy with some EcoMyst House Plant Food!

The Best Gifts for Gardeners

1) Replenish the garden shed
When it comes to green-thumbed gardeners, LittleGardenShop has us covered! Why not refresh a mum, close relatives or friends garden shed with some new stylish gardening tools? Or, give those gardeners hands some TLC with the Garden Hand Gift Set.

2) Self-care isn't just for Mother's Day!
We think that everyone deserves a bit of a pamper, any day of the year, which is why we've chosen PurpleBloomSeeds grow your own seed sets as our next gift recommendation!
Our favourites are the herbal tea sets, containing Calendula & Chamomile, and the bath tonic kit, with Rosemary and Lavender - all packaged beautifully (if you're not the best at gift wrapping!).

The Best Floral-inspired Gifts for Mother's Day

1) Flowers that will last longer than a day
Whether they're a gardener or not, we're confident they'll adore this Dried Flower Hanging Kit. Not only do the dried flowers look beautiful when hung, but you can also repurpose the glass bottles as vases for freshly cut flowers in spring and summer!
2) Dried flowers and foliage look beautiful in a room, too
Dried flowers, grasses and foliage are perfect for busy people who don't have the time to water an entire urban jungle! These are our favourites that we think would make a lovely Mother's Day gift:
3) Seeds & card gift sets
Are they a big fan of cacti? If that's a yes, they'll be super pleased with a gift from seedswithlove. The sets include a vintage-style card and a pack of cacti seeds! When growing cacti from seed, they must be planted somewhere with plenty of light, like a sunny windowsill, conservatory or greenhouse.
If they're not keen on cacti, then that's fine too. Other sets include grow your own herbs for cocktails or grow your own Sweet Peas and Pansies.
