My boyfriend's mother past away and he hates Mother's Day. However, I planned a trip to visit his mother's relatives this weekend and I want to make a Mother's Day gift for her grave when we're in town. It has to be something that can withstand the rain and wind, but something pretty that we can set with some flowers on her grave.

Any ideas would be great!

Maybe a smaller version of a stepping stone -- like a little plaque?  Something like these, but maybe a 1/4 of the size...

They sell kits for the fullsize stepping stones, but they are horribly overpriced.  You can use QuikCrete and just about any container lid or even a little plastic planter as the mold.  Then you could embed marbles, mosaics, etc. into it.

Do you know what any of her hobbies or loves were?  It would be nice to personalize it to her.

I really like these. Another example.

Those are ceramic balls covered with polymer clay.
