Herb Garden

Find a beautiful container and healthy, gorgeous herbs and build her an herb garden for her porch or patio. She will use it all spring and summer, and with care, on into the fall.


Give her your time

Step away from the phone, computer, and just spend time together as a family. Remember her favorite hobby, or just start a family hobby of your own  – bike rides, fishing, flying kites, taking a picnic, playing a board game – that you think she’ll enjoy. Seriously though, if she’s like me, she’ll just love spending time with you.

Mothers Day Ideas from

Make her a meal

One of my favorite Mother’s Day memories was the year my son prepared a bowl of cheerios and a glass of juice all by himself and brought into my room before the sun was even up. He was 6 and I will never forget it! As the years have progressed, he’s helped my husband make Mother’s Day brunch. I have a list of over 60 recipes perfect for making for Mother’s Day.


Spruce up

Give her plants to use on her porches or patio that she can enjoy all throughout the spring and summer. If she’s like me, every time she enjoys a cup of coffee surrounded by such beautiful flowers, she’ll think of you! But really, if my son cleaned his room for me for Mother’s Day, it certainly be a special occasion. Ha!

But, above all, just giving her a big, heartfelt hug and telling her how much you love her is absolutely gift enough!

Enjoy your special day!
