Does Your Mother Love Irises? Iris Themed Gifts

Updated on September 14, 2014

Irises for Mom-Six Great Gift Ideas

Flowers are always a great gift choice for Mom and Irises are often a favorite flower.

I recently photographed irises at Missouri Botanical Garden and was again taken away by their majestic beauty. They come in a wide array of color combinations and look so very elegant.

On this page I will suggest six ideas for great Mothers Day Gifts with an iris theme.

Iris Themed Gifts for Mom - ideas for Mothers Day

If your Mom loves irises them perhaps she would enjoy an iris themed gift. Listed below are six suggestions to help you find the perfect gift for your Mom.

  1. Jewelry is always a welcome gift for my Mom. I found several different iris themed jewelry items online. Perhaps you can find the perfect one for your Mom.
  2. If your Mom is a gardener, you might want to consider a book with tips on growing irises. It is an item she will use again and again.
  3. There is nothing better than the gift of time. Consider taking your Mom to a botanical garden to enjoy the irises and all of the other flowers. If you don't have a botanical garden close by a nearby perhaps you could go to a nearby park or walk in a neighborhood where irises are blooming.
  4. A beautiful toss pillow with a photograph of an iris would make a great gift. This would be particularly nice for a Mom that is home-bound or in a nursing home. They would have the beautiful pillow to look at and enjoy all year long.
  5. An Iris print or poster for the wall makes a lovely gift. You can find a host of colorful iris posters on Zazzle.
  6. A personalized card from you would be a welcome gift for your Mom. Choose a card with a beautiful Iris on the front and then personalize it inside with your special message or poem. It will be a gift that your Mom will treasure.

#1- Iris Jewelry - beautiful watercolor iris

This wood necklace features a beautiful watercolor of a blue iris mounted on a wood necklace. This would delight any Mom who loves irises.

#2 -Iris Book for the Gardener - a great reference book

This informative book features over 1100 photos of irises. It includes irises in every color and features both modern and historic irises. This is the perfect gift for someone who is really into irises. It is a great reference book.
