When you think of how to show mom you care on Mother’s Day, what do you think of first? Each year, I try to come up with something that my Mom will appreciate. She is not the easiest woman in the world to buy for, so this isn’t as easy as you might think.

She doesn’t wear perfume or makeup or jewelry. And, she is always trying to lose weight so I don’t want to buy her food she shouldn’t eat. She’s very picky when it comes to clothes and accessories. Some years, it just seems impossible.
How to Show Mom You Care on Mother’s Day
My parents have been focusing on downsizing this year, so the last thing that I want to do is to add to the clutter issue. That eliminates most of the ornamental or decorative Mother’s Day ideas that I’ve seen. The one thing that my Mother truly loves is her plants. She has a library full of the most beautiful Christmas Cactuses and other plants that I’ve seen. I have never visited at a time when they haven’t looked gorgeous. She has a real green thumb for house plants.
I received a beautiful Graceful Gardenia from 1800Flowers.com that would be the perfect Mother’s Day gift for anyone who loves flowering plants. The gardenias smell so good when they bloom. The gardenia plant came in a gorgeous, vibrant blue and pink vintage container. The gardenia plant arrives in bud form, ready to bloom with fragrant white flowers and is available in 6”H or 4”H. This is a lovely way to show mom you care on her special day.
Show Mom you care with a gardenia
When I received the gardenia plant, it was a perfect condition, and it had so many buds just waiting to blossom. I read over the care instructions so I would know just how to take care of it and in just a few days, the buds started to open. I could smell the gardenia fragrance as soon as I walked into the room.
Once the buds are gone, depending on your zone, you can plant the Graceful Gardenia outside in your garden, and it will come back each year. Since I’m in zone 4, my gardenia will live inside with me since it wouldn’t survive the cold temperatures. If your Mom enjoys plants, she may also like the Love You Mom Cala Lily. It’s pink and comes in the cutest pot! That’s a great way to show mom you care.
