Mother's Day gift ideas | Schlage

Here are some of our smart gardening picks so you can have a stunning and healthy yard.



The most common gifts given at Mother’s Day are typically greeting cards, gift cards and special outings. But that was before the coronavirus pandemic. Things might be a little different this year – and don’t you want to be different, too – so it could be time to rethink your strategy. Whether Mom took up gardening as a quarantine hobby or got really into self-care, loves a relaxing home-brewed cup of coffee or likes to get her hands dirty with some DIY, try some of these gifts she’s sure to love.

Muck Boot Womens Outscape Chelsea Gardeners Shoe.

Garden shoes

If she’s working out in the garden, help her stay comfortable all day. The right footwear can keep her feet dry and protected, no matter the weather or the project. The Original Muck Boot Company has a selection of styles and designs, not just for Mom, but for the whole family.

Hori Hori Knife

Hori Hori Knife

A hori hori knife is designed specifically for digging, cutting and measuring in the garden. Try one like the Truly Garden Hori Hori Garden Tool, which also comes with a leather sheath and sharpening rod. Such a handy tool will keep her from having to run back and forth to the shed.

Home Grown Pantry Book

Homegrown Pantry

Growing your own vegetables can be very rewarding … or disappointing if you aren’t sure what you’re doing. Help Mom avoid brown thumb frustrations by gifting her this book. It shows how to pick the right plant varieties and keep them healthy for year-round satisfaction. If Mom has gotten into learning how to urban garden or likes to feed the family with food she grew herself, this is the perfect gift.

From earthworms to bookworms, our Book Gift Guide will hook Mom from page one.
Florensi meditation cushion

Florensi Meditation Cushion

Most moms could use a little more self-care time. This meditation cushion can help her manage stress, increase creativity and develop patience, all while comfortably supporting her spine. Yes, it’s stylish, but it’s also a healthy way to practice mindfulness and grant her that alone time she craves.

Engraved spoon

“Coffee together” engraved spoon

Is Mom in another city? Or another state? Little reminders can mean a lot when you’re missing each other. These engraved spoons are the perfect example. We chose “Still having coffee together,” but there are several other messages to choose from to let Mom know how much you care. Schedule a Zoom call on the Mother’s Day and enjoy a cup together.

Phillips Airfryer XXL

Philips Airfyer XXL

You want Mom to be healthy and she wants the same for her family. With little to no oil needed, an airfryer can fry, bake, grill and more, with less fat. It comes with a recipe book and app to make cooking even easier – perfect for busy moms and all her helpers. This XXL model is also large enough to feed the whole family.

Garage heater fan.

Garage/Workshop Heater

Even projects she enjoys can feel like another chore when she’s uncomfortable. If Mom likes to putter in the garage in the winter or if she built her own she-shed in the backyard this year, a heater for semi-small spaces is a must.

Afraid she’ll turn a cold shoulder on this gift? How about a different DIY gadget in our Tools Gift Guide?
