Mother's day gift

Mother’s Day is just around the corner. And just in time, I have a simple gift idea for you!  Give Mom a nice Herb and Tomato gift!

You need:

  • One or two potted tomato plants
  • One or two potted herb plants (I used basil)
  • Ribbon
  • Wrapping paper (I used brown kraft paper)
  • Tape

All I did was cut a strip of Kraft paper wide enough to cover the ugly pots.  I taped it in place.  Next I took some polka dot ribbon I had from the dollar store, wrapped it around over the Kraft paper, then taped it in place.  Finally, I added the red/pink ribbon by tying it in a bow at what I determined to be the front.  As a cute touch, I stuck in a butterfly pick that I found at the dollar store.

All you have to do now is add a card and tell Mom to plant them in her favourite planters or garden!

If you’d rather not use tomatoes or herbs, grab a pack of flowers from your local greenhouse and wrap it the same way with the Kraft paper.  Like so:

I decided to forgo the ribbon this time in favour of writing “Happy Mother’s Day” on the paper instead.

I’d like to know two things:  What will you be giving Mom this year and what do you really want for Mother’s Day?
