Mother’s Day Allergy-Friendly Gift Guide
She gave you life, dried your tears and checked under the bed for monsters. Moms deserve a lot of credit and love for all they do.
Mother’s Day falls on Sunday, May 11 this year, and we’ve put together some great allergy-friendly gift ideas that mom is sure to adore.
For the Gardener: Cut flowers are sweet, but gone too soon. Why not bring the blossoms indoors with the beautiful Year of Seeds windowsill garden? The set includes 12 packets of easy-to-grow seeds, from petunias to poppies, and 12 candy-colored earthenware pots, each with an illustration of the corresponding flower.
