Since primary school, we’ve all had to come up with the perfect gifts for Mum on Mother’s Day. From handmade cards with lopsided cut-and-paste hearts to semi-charred breakfasts in bed, Mum has been receiving all our best efforts (and mishaps) on her special day.
The time has come to make a change from hastily assembled gifts and freshly picked bouquets. Let us show you 5 unforgettable and meaningful mothers day gifts that make the perfect alternatives in our Mother’s Day Gift Guide.
Meaningful Mothers Day Gifts
Send a Fig Tree
A low maintenance fruit tree with extra care in winter, delivered in a gift wrapped pot. The tree will start to produce ripening fruits 10-12 weeks after Mother’s day which will ripen around September time.
For the mum who loves to cook, why not consider one of our fig trees? Figs are very delicate fruits with a gentle aroma and sweet flavour. If your mum spends loads of time in the kitchen whipping up tasty treats, she would love to try incorporating figs from her own garden into the menu!
Both the small and large fig trees will provide a perfect fit for whatever sized garden mum has. In just a few short weeks the tree will be coming into leaf revealing large lobed foliage. The fruits will be ripe for the picking in late summer perfect for mum to eat straight from the tree or turn into a delicious fruity feast.
Special Mum Rose Bush Gift
A low maintenance rose bush, in a pot and gift wrapped. Rose blooms due to appear in 8-10 weeks after Mother’s Day (Mid June).
We know every mum is special so what’s a better way to let her know just how special she really is than with a Special Mum rose bush. The blooms are pink and rosy and will provide the garden with beautiful splashes of colour throughout from late June onwards.
How many people buy bunches of flowers for their mum on Mother’s day? Rose bushes are an eco-friendly alternative, plus as they bloom every year it’s basically an everlasting bunch of flowers. Our rose bushes are extremely popular and are treasured by all, give the best gift this Mothers Day.
An Olive Bush makes a great gift
Delightful evergreen Olive bushes arrive gift wrapped in their own pots. Low maintenance outdoor plants. Perfect for patios, doorways.
For the Zen Mother who enjoys tranquillity and meditation, an olive bush (a.k.a. ‘Plant of Peace’) could be the perfect addition to a relaxing environment. Olive branches have long since been used as symbols of peace, making the olive bush a thoughtful and unforgettable gift.
Olive trees are known to live for thousands of years making this tree the gift of a lifetime. The lifespan of the tree stretching just as far as our appreciation and love for mum. Why not also check out our mini olive tree gift? The unique bowl-shaped pot adds style to the small tree which is presented in beautiful gift wrap.
A beautiful small native tree, associated with thousands of years of folklore, known as The Tree of Life. Perfect for medium to large gardens. Can be grown in a large pot for 10 years before planting out.
Maybe your Mum is someone who provides you with unwavering strength and beauty and is steadfastly committed to her family? If so, consider showing your appreciation with our rowan tree gift, a tree associated with protection, strength and beauty.
Known as the “Lady of the Mountain” the rowan tree is praised for being hardy but beautiful, thriving with strength and grace in harsh conditions. The Rowan is a small UK native tree that produces bright red berries in the autumn. In just a few weeks this sapling will be bursting to life with fresh spring growth making the garden feel alive once again.
Evergreen and aromatic, our Bay trees make great gifts and come shaped for the stylish garden or to sit aside the family threshold.
Or maybe your mum is more of a nurturer, a mum who could always make the woes of the world pass with a simple hug or a smile. If so, one of our bay trees may be the optimum gift for her, as they’re used to ward off evil and illness.
As bay leaves are also used frequently in cooking hearty dishes like stews and soups and are associated with comfort it’s the ultimate gift for the mum who loves to cook and incorporate different herbs and spices.
We have a variety of sizes and styles will sure to be a perfect fit for any garden or personality. Choose between a range of sizes of Bay Trees or even a matching pair of bay trees would be lovingly appreciated.
