Plants can be the perfect gift for moms who love to be creative. So if your mom is not afraid to get her hands a little dirty and likes a creative challenge, we have the perfect gifts for her!

Airplants, also called Tillandsias, are great for sparking creativity in plant lovers. Since they don't need soil, you can get creative with how you display them. Try hanging them in glass terrariums or on pieces of driftwood.
