Lula’s Petite Succulent Garden

If your mom has a green thumb (or even if she doesn’t), then this succulent garden is a great gift for her. Ranging from one small succulent to a mini garden, Lula’s Gardens are darling additions to a coffee table or windowsill. These easy-to-care-for plant babies are wrapped up in super-cute packaging and shipped right to mom’s front door, so even if you can’t be there with her she knows you’re thinking about her. The best part is that this gift lasts way longer than the fresh flowers you sent her last year. ($25; lulasgarden.com)
