Unless you have a particularly surreal origin story, you probably have a mother. Mother's day is rapidly approaching, and it's time to honor some of the most special women in our lives. I'm barely suppressing the urge here to make reference to the film Mommie Dearest, but that says more about me than about the Holiday. The reality is that few things make perfect Mother's Day Gifts quite like gifts from McArdle's. We've got everything from fresh cut flowers, to blooming plants, to gourmet treats, and gifts for the gardener you love. So, let me talk you through some options, and by the time we're through, you'll have some direction if not the perfect gift idea.
Mother's Day Arrangements:
If you haven't had the chance to take a look at our Mother's day collection, click here! Our design team has put together a luxurious collection of arrangements for the coming holiday. Additionally, we've photographed our designs in all their available sizes, so you can envision exactly which gorgeous arrangement mom is going to get, not matter your budget. You can see my personal favorite, "Phalaenopsis Luxe," to the right.
If you know your mom loves flowers, and has a green thumb, she might love a blooming plant. We have everything from hydrangea to begonias to blooming herbs plants like lavender and jasmine vine. On the subject of blooming herbs, my favorite potted gift for Mother's day is "Lavender in Whitewashed Wood." With this gift, mom can enjoy the delicate purple blossoms for several weeks, and when the bloom falls, she can continue to take pleasure in the fragrant foliage.
Treat Mom's senses this Mother's day with the gift of gourmet goodies. We've curated a beautiful selection of locally made (and often organic) treats to delight any palette. You'll find tea, jams and spreads, chocolate, and more in our baskets. As an example, why not have a look at our "Premium Sweets & Treats Gift Basket?"
Whether mom has been gardening for years, or this is her first season digging around outside, help get the season started with a sweet basket of garden supplies. Seasoned gardeners and novices alike will love our gardener's gift baskets, like our "Kitchen Herb Kit." Every time mom looks out the window at the garden, she'll be reminded of you and your thoughtful gift.
So, we hope that inspiration has struck, and you've got a clear idea of how you'll celebrate you mom this Mother's Day. But, if you still have questions, or want something custom, don't hesitate to give us a call or stop in. We'll look forward to seeing you.
