10 Unique Mother’s Day Gifts

Mother's Day is right around the corner. If you're struggling to find the right gift for the special moms in your life, we have a fun list for you. Here are ten unique gifts to consider.

The Moon

If your mom is of astronomical greatness (which we're sure she is), get her a plot of land on the moon. It comes with a plaque to hang on the wall at work or at home, which is a great conversation piece. Not to mention, land on the moon is cheap—property values could rise!

"Of the Month" Clubs

What does your mom love? What is her hobby? Search for an "of the month" club incorporating her favorite things such as wine, candles, or gardening. That way she can enjoy it all year.

Herb GardfenHerb Garden

If she is a cook, assemble an herb garden for her. Use a natural seed starter to ensure the container garden thrives after planting. Every time Mom cuts off some herbs she will think of you.


Does her technology need to be updated? Introduce her to a portable speaker, phone charger battery, kindle, or tablet. Include a quick tutorial session if needed.

Camping / Outdoor Items

Camping supplies such as fire pits, fishing poles, hammocks, or portable shade covers are great ideas if she enjoys the outdoors.

Day at the Spa / Massage

If your mother is into pampering then how about a day at the spa? Include some of her best friends and split the cost with their kids to make a day she will never forget. Remember to include the tip!


Gifting a terrarium shows you are caring and creative. These tiny gardens in a vase are perfect decorations for the home or office and can come in many shapes, sizes, and colors.

Mother's Day Container GardenContainer Garden

If she is a gardener, assemble a nice mix of plants into a unique container matching her current decorations. Bundle this with an organic fertilizer she can use to keep the plants healthy and lush.

Explore a Nearby Town

Take her to a nearby town you don't frequent often. Spending time together can be better than a perishable gift. Research the town beforehand and find a few destinations for lunch, sightseeing, and shopping.

Stylish Kitchen Composter

Looking for something that’s both decorative, practical and doesn’t take up a lot of room? Give her a compost container that fits conveniently on her kitchen counter. Whether her style is modern and sleek, or vintage and rustic like this compost crock, you can be sure to find the perfect match.

We hope the list above helps you find that perfect gift for your Mom, Grandmother, Wife (if you have children) or Mother-In-Law. If you have any further suggestions on what to give for Mother's Day or really liked one of our ideas let us know! Head over to our Facebook page and share your story!

Winter is closing in fast in New Hampshire. That's ok with me, as I can't wait to go ice fishing. Hard to stay ahead of all the oak leaves coming down. The lawn looks great after the lime and the September and October applications. Can't wait to see how it looks next year. Check Out His Video

PROTILIZER is a great product. I first heard about it on the Paul Parent radio program. I tell everyone about it. Thanks!

Brad P, – Beverly MA

Best fertilizer I have used.

J Burnett – Lowell, MA

Lawn looks amazing

L.R. – Ashburnham, MA

We used this ice melt all winter on some difficult steps and a walk way that always ices up. I would give this product a ten star if I could.

Wayne G – Manchester, NH

I live where the soil is already high in phosphorus (the middle number) and it’s hard to find any with none locally. I buy one of these (Fall Fertilizer Application 4) each season and they are well worth the cost. My neighbors all say my yard is looking much better than under the prior homeowner.

Stacie W. – Fort Worth, TX

…The only thing better than your products are the people behind them. You [all] are the best!!

Steve D. – Merrimack, NH

We will continue to use [Protilizer & 5-5-5] with great enthusiasm. We swept the Court of Honor in every rose show where we exhibited, including the National Rose Show.

John & Cherylynn Smith, National Rose Association First Place Winner – Westminster, MD

We grow 200 varieties of hot peppers and 150 heirloom tomatoes. We used Protilizer and saw no phytophthora root disease; our crop yields were higher; we had better root development; and the plants just looked healthier than they have in years. The fact that Protilizer is organic and OMRI listed is a bonus. Thank you for your help and support throughout my trials.

James Weaver, Meadow View Farms – Kutztown, PA

I will continue to be a loyal supporter of Natural Alternative products. Your bacteria based products are unmatched in the industry.

Darryl Schultz, Bud Shultz Garden Center – Dunmore, PA

I am a vegetable and annual grower. I recently started using your Protilizer Seed & Plant Starter on my annual nursery stock. The results exceeded my expectations. My Impatiens, Petunias, Marigolds were healthy and disease free. The root development was the best I have ever seen. This year I am also trying it in my strawberry fields.

John Stoltzfus, Brandywine Produce – Honey Brook, PA

We are pleased with the results we’re getting with Protilizer on our pansy crop. We did not have any stem disease for the first time in years. Please send me another 6 jugs. We need it for our poinsettias.

Kenneth Miller, Milmont Greenhouses – Waynesboro, VA

As a grower/retailer we use Natural Alternative Protilizer and 5-5-5 plant food in our growing operations to maintain top quality plants in our retail stores. We have reduced our use of fungicides for root diseases to almost zero. During the hot summer months, our customers remark that our plants look so healthy for the middle of summer.

Jim Glick, Ken’s Gardens – Lancaster County, PA

Thank you all for your help and recommendations. I appreciate the time you spent on the phone with me to work toward a solution for my lawn. You have been a tremendous help. What terrific customer service!

J. Jackson – Columbus, Ohio

Again, I want to thank you for the awesome service you have given us this season. I very much appreciate it.

Lee Roeder, Strosniders – Bethesda, MD

The ice melt worked great! We already put some down for the storm that missed us last week, and yesterday morning when I checked the area it was covered with sleet with the exception of the areas we treated with the ice melt. [Thanks for] your quality service and the great product you provide.

Andrew C. Lee, Capitol Hill Business Improvement District – Washington, DC

We love the [Natural Alternative Ice Melt] product and have for years. We will keep pushing it!

Craig S. Co-Owner – Twins Ace Hardware, Fairfax, VA 22030

I just wanted to thank you for the great products that Natural Alternatives produces. I did cut my lawn last Saturday and got all the leaves up and early Sunday morning applied the last Winter Fertilizer. I have been so pleased with your products for the lawn and for my flower beds and tomato plants. My lawn looks like green velvet. I have two dogs and am very careful as to what products I apply to my lawn and gardens. Thank you also for the "computer reminders" that you send out. They are very helpful.

Peggy S. – Laconia, NH

Thank you and your staff SO MUCH for getting us an order of ice melt today. You've made not only our customers, but staff (who is always eager to please), very happy! It's that kind of service and attention that will have us coming back to you!

Robbie Kaplan, Ace Hardware – Washington, DC

The best stuff! I use it all the time. I used it on 15 wint o'green arborvitaes, recommended by Paul Parent. They all are thriving and huge; 4 feet to 15 feet in three years.

Tammy Schwab

We [used your] ice melt today and it worked much better than what we were using before.
