Is your mom a gardener? If she loves working in her garden, no matter how small that is, these gardening Mother’s day gifts will put a big smile on her face.
Gardening Mother’s Day Gifts
There are many gifts you could give anyone who loves to get their hands dirty with gardening: from kneeling pads to make their weeding job easier, to more exquisite gifts like this handcrafted and hand-painted MacKenzie-Childs Birdhouse Chandelier from Neiman Marcus.
Gifts for a mom who loves gardening but can’t
Sometimes we’d love gardening, but for one reason or another, it’s just not possible. It could be a lack of time, lack of space, or a bad back or knees. Here are some special gifts for gardening grandmothers.
It’s no fun to wish for something but not be able to do it. Here are a few gift ideas if your mother loves gardening but can’t physically get out in the garden.
A window bird feeder so she can watch birds whenever she wants to, some throw pillows for her sofa, or a butterfly door knocker. Or how about a flower wreath for her door?

Flower gifts for mom’s special day
If she loves flowers, you have an easy job. Just go to any local nursery and get her a few pots of flowers.
