Every time she looks at the framed puzzle, she will be reminded of the special Mother's Day you shared together.
Bonus: these flowers will not die after a week.

Flowers on Mother's Day are classic, if not a little trite. Try mixing things up with this vibrant jigsaw puzzle and while away the hours together with this self-care gift. It might be a bit cold outside to do the gardening but that doesn't mean mum can't do some gardening indoors! Did you know gardening improves one's endurance and strength, and is known to also reduce stress levels? Combine that with jigsaw puzzles which are also scientifically shown to reduce stress levels and you have the ultimate recipe for less stress!
And for those of us who don't have gardens - even just seeing images of a garden (such as this gorgeous puzzle with iris flowers in it) is known to help relieve stress!
