Mother’s Day Gift Guide: Gifts & DIY’s For Plant Lovers

Raise your hand if you’re like me and obsessed with all things plants! Our first decor purchase for the new home was a giant fiddle fig tree. I also made sure to incorporate plants into our design plans for the new living room and dining room.

My love for plants even landed me in the Urgent Care a few weeks ago. Side note: If you missed my Instagram stories, my hand swelled up when I was pulling weeds! I was trying to beautify the old townhome before we listed it on the market. After 24-hours,  lots of Benadryl and no luck with the swelling, I had to go to the ER!

So if your mom, grandma or godmother is a plant lady or just enjoys spending time in the garden, here are our Mother’s Days picks for any mom with the green thumb!
