For moms who love gardening

Now that your favorite lady is scoping out the tools from the shed and mapping out what to plant in May, why not play to her green thumb with your gift? Plenty of gardening and plant accessories will please Mom and her leafy companions. Gifts for gardeners are as abundant as the perennials in your flower bed. 

For moms who love hosting

What is a good Mother's day gift?

A good Mother's Day gift is a heartfelt token that will mean a lot to Mom. If you want to go the personal, handmade route, Drew Barrymore, Etsy's first-ever Chief Gifting Officer, has tailored recommendations from the commerce site that caters to all interests. 

Speaking of interests, we recommend playing into your favorite lady's go-to hobby. At Real Homes, we laser-focused on things to do around the abode: cooking, hosting and gardening. 

Also consider looking into gifts in wellness, decor, food, and of course, flowers. Who could go wrong with a bouquet? Above all else, the best gifts are ones that are meaningful and required thought to pull together. 

What can I send for Mother's Day besides flowers?

Rather than send flowers on Mother's Day, consider opting for a gift that keeps on giving the best subscription boxes: from options for moms with a green thumb (houseplant subscription boxes) to practical picks (best cleaning supplies subscriptions) to suit all needs.
