GUIDE TO SANE GIFT SHOPPING & GIVING
Some Mothers would prefer not to watch once magnificent flowers wither and die. Others are green Moms who enjoy the beauty of living plants. Some gift suggestions follow for these ladies. Especially those who want to make the planet cleaner and greener.
Keep in mind, if any of these plants or trees seem to fit the bill, a visit to your local nursery might yield your prize without shipping.
Fast Growing Trees completely gift wraps, including bow, this Blooming Topiary Azalea gift presentation for you.
Would your mother love to have this beautiful plant greet her every morning as she prepares coffee? Or, have it on the windowsill as she enjoys the sunset? Perhaps it will be just the thing for her office. Shipped FedEx Ground. Free shipping over $125.
Also available from Pro Flowers, 1-800 Flowers, FTD and similar.
Or, perhaps these very fragrant choices might be a better fit.
An actual tree would certainly be memorable for years to come and likely make her smile every time the aroma wafts to her.
Might she enjoy the creamy blossoms, delicious fragrance and fabulous show of a Jane Magnolia? Long lasting, glossy blooms.
Might they love the Gardenia Bonsai Tree Gift? It’s not only elegant and gorgeous, but smells delicious. Since it’s a bonsai tree, they can move it into the form that suits them. Comes in a ceramic container.

Don’t know Mom’s favorite tree or plant? Be sneaky.
Ask (or better have a grandchild ask!):
What kind would you be, if you could be a tree? Or, a plant? What makes you choose that one (those)?
Although your Mother would love any of the above. Unless, like Madonna, she really hates Hydrangeas!
