Treat Mom to a Jo Malone perfume! We love this light, floral fragrance housed in a beautiful bottle with green accents that doubles as vanity table decor. The scent has notes of white blossoms, lemon and rose for a bright, fruity scent making it a thoughtful gift for anyone who enjoys smelling nice. 


If you want to think outside gift box, try this for a unique gift idea for a mother-in-law with a green thumb: a lemon tree! It comes with a bar of exfoliating lemon and poppy seed hand soap, and a bottle of hydrating lemon citrus lotion that will outshine any bath bomb you were thinking about getting your MIL.
