Mother’s Day Gifts: The Symbolic Meaning Behind 5 Top Houseplants
Houseplants have become a new sustainable alternative to cut flowers, and for good reason. Not only are they usually a better value for your money, but they also last much longer and come with a string of benefits such as improved mood, productivity and cleaner air.
This year, consider giving your mother a lovely houseplant that will remind her of your love for many years to come, rather than cut flowers that may only last a few days or weeks. Houseplants not only brighten up any space with their vibrant colours and lush foliage, but they also carry with them a range of symbolic meanings that make them a thoughtful and meaningful gift for any mother.
