DIY Flower Pot Gift Ideas | Mother's Day | Hostess Gifts | Peonies

Mother's Days gifts are my favorite to buy - mostly because I just buy exactly what I would want.  I have found that the best gifts are use-able, useful gifts.  Moms are do-ers.  We don't like too many things that sit around and don't get used.  We also like invitations to relax - like soaps, candles and bath salts.  These things all get used and eventually go away, which is the perfect gift formula.  The container can also be used after the gift is done - no waste.  Everyone has the need for one more little rustic pot to plant and herb, flower or use as a container.

Of course, these would make darling teachers gifts and hostess gifts, as well.

Here is another version of the same gift, but in Navy and Greens.

Here, I've used the rustic pots as vessels for a flower arrangement (with the help of plastic cups inside).

Small Herb Pot, $10

I stuffed some tissue/Kraft paper in the base, under the towels to help fill the pot.

In this Pot Gift Basket, I included :

Concord Green Taper Candles, Verbena Bath Salts & Verbena Soap

Here are some other favorite matching combinations... if you like that sort of thing, which I clearly do  ; )
 Natural Beeswax Tapers & Gardenia Soap

Mom's Hydrangea Taper Candles & Lilac of May Soap

Of course, fresh flowers (or a potted plant) are always the right answer for Mother's Day.

Here I used one of my Large Kitchen Containers to turn this pot into a water holding vessel.

5 White Hydrangea fill this "vase" perfectly 

This Peony arrangement is made in the Small Herb Pot.  I love how using a rustic pot instead of a vase makes any arrangement look gardeny and casual - very summery.

A Clear Plastic Cup from my essentials collection fits perfectly inside it to turn it into a vase.

This French Blue Gingham Napkin is available in the store, too.
