If you just now realized that Mother’s Day is this Sunday, it’s time to go shopping. While you may be able to order online, you can also go old school and go to a local garden center. Our favorite garden store is Patuxent Nursery. They always have a great selection of plants, garden décor, fountains, outdoor furniture, bird feeders, and much more. We focus on Mother’s Day gifts for the outdoor living enthusiast because that’s what we’re all about.
Here are our top Mother’s Day gift ideas for the outdoor living enthusiast:
You can never go wrong with flowers. But while you can pick up a fresh bouquet, we like the idea of getting hanging baskets or flowers she can plant in the garden or put in planters. While you’re getting the flowers, maybe get some new planters to complement the patio décor!
Wall art, garden flags, gazing balls, spinners, and wind chimes, oh my! There are so many beautiful garden décor items to choose from. If she has a favorite saying or color, get something that aligns with those tastes. Consider something that’s hand-crafted by a local artisan.
If she likes to dig in the dirt with a flower garden or vegetable garden, replace her favorite gardening gloves with the same ones in a new color or pattern. Upgrade her gardening tools, get a travel mug with a gardening motif, or get all of these and put them in a big basket!
Bird Lover Gifts
If your mom or wife is a bird lover, she can always use a squirrel-proof bird feeder, bird feed, or bluebird house. And if she’s serious about keeping the squirrels out of her feeders, consider getting an extra-tall bird feeder pole with a built-in squirrel baffle like the Sequoia Squirrel Stopper.
Are last year’s patio furniture cushions looking worse for wear? Get her the set she’s had her eye on. Or get some cute throw pillows along with another gift. Or, get a gift that lets her relax and enjoy a summer breeze with a hanging chaise lounger or hammock chair.
New Patio Furniture
We wouldn’t suggest buying your wife new patio furniture without your wife coming along, but if she’s already dropped hints about exactly what she wants, that would be a nice surprise Sunday morning!
The best Mother’s Day gifts are thoughtful gifts given from the heart. We hope you found some ideas you and she will like in this list. And enjoy the weekend!
