The 5 best plant-based gift ideas for Mother’s Day, from The Beet
All mom wants on Sunday is to know you’re thinking of her, Mother’s Day, and all day, so consider skipping the chemically treated bouquet and instead give her gifts that show her, “I love you, I appreciate you, and I cherish our time together.” Choose a special treat to pamper herself that will remind her, every time she looks at it, tastes it, or sips it, that you are her favorite.
In this spirit, the editors of Beet came up with ‘Wow!’ gifts that will make mothers or any woman in your life you want to show love to (Hey, she can be the mom of her favorite pet) that you are thinking of her. From windowsill planters to flower teas, these gifts are winners and won’t cost your wallet more than around $60 (and some much less).
Start shopping. There is still time for next day delivery! Or get her a card and put a picture of the gift on it, and tell her she’ll have the added pleasure of celebrating again when your gift arrives!

For anyone who wants to start growing herbs, today, on a windowsill or a garden, on a balcony or a fire escape, Harry and David, the amazing fruit suppliers, have the most classic garden in a box. herb garden about.

PS While shopping at Harry & David I also saw their bonsai olive tree, which looks both adorable and zen, so kids, no need to fight. One of you can get it for me instead.

1. The Threshold Orchid
Buying gifts for people who deserve the world is not an easy task. I know my mom appreciates any gift from me and my siblings and especially loves spending time with us on her special vacation. So, for Mother’s Day, I’m surprising my mom with a secret visit, from New York to her house in MA – not long but she’s not expecting it.
When I’m at her house, I plan to serve her the Beet Croissant French Toast for breakfast and take her to a winery where she can enjoy her favorite glass of wine in the sun. Adding to my plans, I bought a giant orchid a few days ago, which should arrive on Monday to make the holidays last longer – and I’m sure she’ll appreciate the idea.
I bought the plant from The SIll which offers beautiful plant and flower keeping with simple and chic pots and planters. The website is easy to navigate and the shopping experience is pleasant as I have sorted my options of different plants and sizes. The Sill makes it easy to find the perfect gift for your loved one.

Make sure the room it’s hanging in is a dark, warm place.
