Mother’s Day is just around the corner. How do you plan to celebrate? If you’re a Mom, you might ask for some quiet time. Depending on your young one’s age, you might get breakfast in bed. That could be toast and coffee or something fit for a queen.

The point is that no matter what your child gives you it will be the perfect gift.

The same goes for gift giving.

I like the idea of giving gardening Mom’s Day baskets of goodies on their special day. A great gift basket contains things Mom  needs or could use but won’t buy herself. Things she would look for on the spur of the moment. 

Here’s some ideas to get you started.

  • a new nail brush
  • emery board
  • hand cream
  • bug repellent
  • sunscreen
  • sunglasses
  • hat or headscarf
  • reusable water bottle
  • hand tools
  • knee pads
  • disposable gloves
  • wet naps

Make sure its a basket Mom can use. A wicker basket for maybe picking veggies or flowers. A planter basket might include a gift certificate for her favorite garden center.
Get creative this Mother’s Day! Let me know what you packed in your basket!

Cindy's Recipes and Writings

As a professional cook, I love creating exciting new recipes on the job as well as at home. Assisting in teaching low-income families how to buy, store and prepare healthy food through Penn State’s alliance with Pennsylvania’s Supercupboard Program was very rewarding. During my 11 years with the Master Gardener program, I taught horticultural therapy to assisted living patients using healthful, fr
esh grown food as a focal point. . My hands-on programs and instruction helped hundreds of children and adults learn about where their food comes from and how important fresh food is for your body.
Currently I’m a cook at a college in Pennsylvania. We prepare everything we can from scratch, including our potato chips that tout the seasoning of the day!
Of course I write about food; it's in my blood!
