A Mother’s Day Gift Mom Will Love

From flawlessly introducing a trendy plant to tackling windowless room woes, our plant specialist Chrissy will set you up with the perfect plant pick.

“I need to send my Mom a present for Mother’s Day! I’ve gotten her fruit baskets every year so I need something new. Any recommendations for a unique gift?” —Jeanne, River Edge NJ

Plants make people happy, but giving them to those you care about brings just as much happiness! Show mama some love on Mother's Day by gifting her a plant that she can handle.

Aside from those personality-packed leaves, the Bird's Nest Fern is the perfect option for any mom that wants a lush green look (without having to devote too much time to making sure it’s happy).

If kept in a spot with low to medium indirect light, this fab fern will be all set. While its lighting needs are low-key, its watering schedule is even easier. A drink every one to two weeks — when the soil is about half-dry — is all that’s needed. Since this choice can tolerate moisture, beginners worried about overwatering can be put at ease.

When paired with our tote bag, this gifting duo is guaranteed to give your mom all of the feels.
