Skip the Bouquet This Mother’s Day and Get Your Mama a Box of Eco-Friendly Delights

 In Culture, Guide

You know that feeling you got in elementary school when you opened up your lunchbox to find that your mom had taken the time to arrange your apple slices and your peanut-butter sandwich and the cute little note from her just so? If you want to make your mama feel exactly that special this Mother’s Day, Giving Sprout has got you covered.

Founded in 2018 by two moms from Washington, Missouri, the Giving Sprout is on a mission “to encourage the human instinct of giving and delight our customers through our creative, simply organized, natural gift boxes.” And we can’t imagine a mom who wouldn’t be delighted to get one of their creations in the mail. With your choice of easy-care succulent plant along with a curated mix of rosemary mint candles, soaps and grow-your-own garden kits, each of their Mother’s Day offerings is a cute, long-lasting alternative to the standard florist-shop bouquet, with a little cache of self-care staples thrown in for good measure.

But it’s the personal touches that really make a Giving Sprout box the perfect gift—each one is hand-tied with a green ribbon, and they’ll even hand-write a sappy message of your choice on the card.

If you’d rather celebrate a parent figure in your life on May 12 with something non-Mom-branded, the Giving Sprout also offers personalized, build-your-own gifts for every loved one in your life. Just order one up, sit back and wait for the phone call about how surprised they were to find a happy little plant inside the cute white box.
