Mother’s Day is creeping up on us! Do you ever get tired of giving the same old same old? I do.

So this year I decided to change things up thanks to ProFlowers and their great mothers day gift ideas. If you wanted to give a flower bouquet, they have some really lovely ones but they also have some surprises like these Chocolate Covered Strawberries and three Mini-Cheesecakes. This I didn’t order as I knew I’d eat them right up and there would be no gift come Mother’s Day. If you have the willpower, this is a ‘sweet’ gift for Mom!

If you prefer to give something living, you may prefer this Gorgeous Spring Bulb Garden!

I found and ordered these cute felt containers with pretty plants in them. They made me smile and I thought they’d make a mother smile, especially if they are from cute kids! You can buy them separately or together “duo” here.

Item Description:

• One 10” yellow kalanchoe
• One 10” red kalanchoe
• Includes both bee and lady bug felt pail
• Care instructions included
• Item #30067799
Bug them with something they’ll “bee” happy about! Our adorable felt bee and ladybug duo each hold our popular tropical plant – the kalanchoe – in red and yellow. Send today for a smile tomorrow!

The plants came and I must say it was packed nice and securely:

These are cute, and different, which is what I was going for – something that will live beyond Mother’s Day and makes you smile when you look at it. Here are the items from the front and back. The eyes look a little goofy on mine, but i kind of like that!


I liked the Bee Wings on the back!

All I had to do was take the plant and put it in the pot. So easy! The tiny flowers came as buds and are starting to open and are gorgeous. I just need to keep them alive until the 12th! Also I like is that they are like little baskets, so if you wanted to hang them up, it would be super easy.

You could buy these separately or as a set. OR you could find so many beautiful Mothers Day Gifts at ProFlowers!
