With Mother's Day just around the corner, I know what you're probably thinking right now, “What on earth do I get my Mum for mother's Day?” It's time to start thinking about a gift for the lovely lady in your life. This year why not make it easy on yourself and get her something from my list of favourite Interior design and garden books? A bouquet is lovely too but you know, those flowers will be dead in less than a week! If you tap into her interests and get her a great book you'll know she'll love, that book will probably stay with her forever. The best thing is, every time she opens the cover she'll be reminded of you!
What do Mum's really want for Mother's Day?
If your Mum is a home and garden décor lover then she is going to love every one of the books on my list of interior design and garden books.
Most of us creative souls love gathering inspiration by thumbing through our favourite interior design and garden books. The strange thing is though, we don't usually tend to buy them for ourselves. Your Mum probably has home décor and interior design books on her wish list right now that have probably been there for years. Hmmm, I know someone else around here who does that!
Do you find it hard to find the perfect gift for your Mum? You're not alone if you do! Your Mum is special and you need a gift that will not only show her how much you love her but also that shows her how much you 'get' her.
What is the best Mother's Day gift?
The best Mother's Day gift shows that you've put some thought into it. You've considered her hobbies and how she loves to spend her downtime.
With the Coronavirus still at large and lockdowns becoming the norm, it may not be possible for some of us to visit in person. Good then, that there are so many wonderful online shops that are just waiting to gift wrap and ship our gifts door to door!
That's also a great reason to choose something from my list of interior design and garden books. She may not be able to travel but she can still be transported to beautiful English country gardens, start a flower garden or gather inspiration for freshening up her home style. The power of a great book is not to be underestimated!

TIP: I love all of these interiors design books otherwise, I wouldn't recommend them. One of my absolute favourites in this category has to be 'But where Do I put the couch' written by KariAnne Wood of the blog 'Thistlewood Farms' and Melissa Michaels of the blog 'The inspired room'. 101 Real Decorating FAQs Answered. If your Mum is unsure about any area of decorating, chances are the answers are inside this book. Melissa and KariAnne can help!

Best Garden books for Mother's Day 2021 - USA
This is a wish list of lovely garden books. From gardening to designing to simply viewing, there is something here for everyone.
TIP #1: If your mum loves historic homes and British gardens then she will absolutely love 'Sissinghurst, The Dream Garden'. I have visited Sissinghurst Castle garden and can tell you that the flower borders are simply exquisite! Sissinghurst has become one of the most visited and inspirational gardens in the world.
TIP #2 For new or pro gardeners taking the leap towards organic gardening, I fully recommend the book, 'Organic Gardening.' This book is a wealth of information from a former long-time presenter of the BBC's 'Gardener's World'. You can read more about why I recommend this book in the post 'How to make Newspaper Seedling Pots'.
