1. Garden stones:
Garden stones are a unique way for your mom to personalize her garden. Whether she mixes them into the pavers in her backyard or places them on the soil next to different plants, they add character and flair to any backyard decor scheme. She can pay tribute to any military family, recently passed pets or her own friends and family with a variety of stones. They blend in well with other natural washed stones, too, so they’ll integrate seamlessly into what she already has in her yard. They look great in front yards, too!
2. Glass globe lights:
Globe lights are perfect because they can line the pathways throughout her garden and backyard, emitting a soft flow from them. Glass orbs are a unique decor idea because they come in a variety of colors. Each color emits a different shade at night when lit up, so her pathway will be a kaleidoscope of colors and patterns depending on the shape of the glass orbs.
3. Big, bold planters:
Not all plants can go in the ground, and she might not want to put all of them in the ground, either! Get her a set of large planters where she can place either larger plants, such as spider plants, or a variety of smaller plants to uniquely decorate the corners of her garden.
If she has a small backyard or lives someplace where the backyard doesn’t have any green space, this is also the best way for her to get some greenery without needing to break the ground. Make sure you get her planters that have a drain in them so that the plants can get rid of any excess water they don’t need.

4. A coffee mug:
Even if she prefers to drink tea out in her garden, a coffee mug is a great personalized Mother’s Day gift. Ones that reference her gardening habit are even better! Whether you call her the “crazy plant lady” or the “herb queen,” fun and unique coffee mugs are a great gift for your mom. She can use them to hold her tools, store them in her outdoor kitchen or even drill a hole in the bottom to make some unique herb planters for them! Coffee mugs are very versatile objects, so it’s a gift that you can’t go wrong with.
5. A wind chime:
Wind chimes look great in any garden. She’ll love having a melodic decor item to add to her garden or backyard. Whether she hangs it from her back porch or from a sturdy tree branch, a wind chime will be the perfect addition to her garden decor. Wind chimes come in a variety of materials, colors and sizes, each creating their own unique sound. You can get her a set if you’re looking to go the extra mile — one that will create a beautiful harmony of sounds whenever the wind blows through her garden.
6. A flag welcoming guests:
If she loves to welcome people to her garden space, why not get her a unique garden flag? Many of them feature welcoming messages, some are monogrammed and others serve as a way to let guests know whose home they’re coming to. She can place it in her front or back yard and, once she puts the spokes in, she can switch the flags out for each season, occasion or even for her favorite sports teams. Plus, you’ll have a gift idea for her for each major holiday throughout the year!

7. Garden statues:
No garden is complete without a garden statue or two! Gnomes and statues are beautiful art pieces that make each garden unique. Depending on her interests, she can have a variety of statues for a variety of themes. From a garden statue of her dog to one of an angel watching over her garden, every corner of her garden can have a statue sitting in it.
8. An air plant display:
Air plants are all the rage right now — and her backyard garden needs a unique air plant display. Whether you get her one made of metal wire, macrame or wood, a unique display is just what she needs to take her garden decor to the next level. She can hand it from her fence, attach it to a sturdy tree branch or build an in-ground easel for it to rest against. Either way, it’s the perfect gift for a mom who loves her garden.
9. Fresh blooms:
Sometimes, all a garden needs are some fresh blooms planted in it. Whether you give her a set of fresh seeds to plant in her garden or find her some pre-bloomed florals to transplant into her backyard, a new arrangement of colors and species will liven up her garden in the best way possible. It never hurts to have a fresh set of flowers in the front yard, either! Curb appeal never goes out of style, so she’ll love getting some fresh blooms to liven up her space.
No matter what kind of garden decor idea you were inspired by on this list, your mom will be sure to love it and feel the love from you!
