Garden Bon Bons
Made of clay, organic compost, and seeds, these "chocolate truffles" from Moulton are for planting—not eating! They're good for gardeners of any skill level. All your mom needs to do is set them in a sunny spot, water, and watch them grow.
If Mom's home spa is already well stocked, skip the bath salts this year and give her a bathtub shelf. You can buy one or DIY a shelf using reclaimed wood for a rustic bath accessory that can hold her drink and a book while she relaxes in the tub.

Roses to Grow
Flowers are traditional but a little predictable. So this Mother's Day, don't just hand your mom a bouquet of roses, give her a rosebush that she can plant and enjoy for years to come. You can find a wide assortment at your local home store or garden center, or shop online for an heirloom variety like this Benjamin Britten beauty.
Combining a colorful spandex top with machine-washable microsuede palms, these versatile multitask gloves are sure to please gardening moms. Available in four colors—Teal Blue, Hot Pink, Periwinkle Purple, and Lime Green—and in small, medium, and large sizes, these Diggers gloves are available exclusively at Womanswork.
Woodburning crafts are lots of fun. Etch a set of wooden spoons for Mom—or better yet, get her a woodburning kit of her own.
Coasters can be just as stylish as they are practical. You can DIY your own or buy floral coasters like these from Rifle Paper Co.
