I always wait until the last minute. Right now though, I'm having such a creative block. My mom is turning 46 on Friday and I desperately need help! She loves gardening and basically anything to do with outdoors. Any ideas on what I could do, buy or make for her?

Thanks in advance!

buy or sew for her a gardening basket (like a picnic basket) and fill in with things like seeds for next season, gardening tools, "gardeners soap", flower pressing kits, etc.

Crocs are easy to decorate too (has anyone else ever seen those croc clips that go through the holes and have little Fimo things on them? you could make those...)

I meant to update this thing and say thanks to the ones who helped me out!
I made a huge basket of gardening stuff like seeds, markers, bulbs, gloves, stuff like that. Then me and my dad made her a wrap around bench to go around a tree in front of our pool. Plus, we bought her some flowers. Walmart has a lot of small roses and mums. She loved them!  Grin
