  • My mom loves to garden, so this Mother's Day I'm giving her handmade herb markers in an array of pretty pastel hues. Does your mom have a green thumb? If so, these polymer clay markers are an ideal gift! Even if your mom doesn't have a garden of her own, pair these markers with a few potted herb plants she can set on her kitchen windowsill.

    Fresh herbs are a must when making meals (or cocktails!) at home. Pick up a muddler to make perfectly minty mojitos or a mortar and pestle to make delicious pestos for summertime grilling season.
