For moms who’re interested in flowers, shopping for Mother’s Day is a breeze.
All sorts of floral design products would be suitable. These would include everything from floral preservative and designer vases to urns and floral supplies or tools.
If your mother has a cutting garden, plants, seeds, and gardening kits would be much appreciated. One of the easiest gardening kits around is the SeedBallz. These have been on the market for several years. Among the varieties that are suited to cutting gardens are the Cosmos Mix, the Sunflower Mix, and the Poppy Mix. There are eight balls of one variety in each package, which is more than enough for most cutting gardens.
Renee’s Garden is noted for its many cutting garden varieties. Among the seeds that would be of interest to floral designers are sweet peas in every color imaginable. Sun Samba Sunflower Color Mix would also be a great choice. Using this mix is a wonderful means of getting different colors into a bouquet. Earl Grey Specialty Larkspur and two new zinnias, Berry Basket, and Décor, are perfect for cutting gardens as well. Renee’s seeds are available online and at independent garden centers and nurseries.
In addition to all of these items, other things that are floral-related would make fine gifts. Help your mother surround herself with images of beautiful flowers. A great place to start is the new Memo Mousepads from Galison. Serving two purposes, this is a handy memo pad and mousepad all in one. These are quite beautiful. Containing 60 sheets of memo paper on a matching full color, this is supported by a foam core mousepad. It is available in two floral styles. Meadowsweet is a lovely pink that is highlighted with delicate green foliage. Field Blossoms is light green with flowers.
Make correspondence easy and fun by giving your mom a set of the new Magnolia Thank You cards from Galison. These come in a lovely gift box containing twelve notecards depicting gorgeous white magnolia blossoms and a dozen premium quality, pink envelopes.
Help your mom bid goodbye to Post-its by giving her several sets of the new Sticky Notes from Galison. Available in three floral themes, these make a perfect gift. If you can’t choose between the Cherry Blossom, the Meadowsweet, and the William Morris Clover, feel free to buy several sets. They come in an attractively decorated folding portfolio containing 480 stickies in assorted sizes. On the inside top cover of the portfolio is space to record important information.
