This year for Mother’s Day, you don’t have to just “say it with flowers.” While seasonal flowers are lovely, consider something the Moms in your life will be a little surprised by. We’ve selected a few wooden farmhouse gift ideas - some of which are flower-y or at least flower adjacent.
We’re hearing that many Rose Buds are going neutral and natural this year, so here are some farmhouse gifts that fit right in with those vibes.
These wood box sets are a fun find. The faux books open to a box for storage of your treasures. Fun and functional, right? If you’re looking for a more practical application, then store those unsightly remote controls inside to hide them away. Or pop your keys in there so you always know where they are.
The muted colors are great for a variety of color palettes. These are ideal for shelves and mantels that need a unique item, too. I love these as a gift as you can also hide a surprise second gift or a handmade card inside for the giftee.
Check out the subtle salmon tinted interior of this faux book. I love a pink that doesn’t overpower. If you need a gift idea for someone you share a home with, here’s a thought. You can use these books to leave little love notes inside for someone special to discover. We’re all about keeping the romance strong, right, Rose Buds?
We get a lot of questions about shelfscapes and mantelscapes. “What items should I use? How much is too much?” These wooden faux book sets each come with one larger and one smaller fake book. You can display them spine out or cover out, depending on your space needs or aesthetic.
Wood isn’t just for fifth-anniversary presents; it’s a great option for farmhouse gifts, no matter how long the relationship.
We're always looking for unique items that work well for kitchen or dining room decor. It's a plus when they're super functional, too. We love these hand-carved, pale blond, wooden bowls. The oval shape is both unusual and pleasing to the eye. These will look great on a shelfscape or counterscape - or even filled with fresh fruit on the dining room table.
Deliver these to a loved one filled with some fresh or faux flowers!
Here’s another wooden farmhouse gift idea for you. When someone you know is bored with traditional clay pots, you could introduce her to wood. We don’t often think of wood as receptacles for flowers or faux plants, but they amplify the natural vibe.
This hanging pot is clean and modern. We don't recommend adding too much moisture as wood is a breathing entity that can crack, get misshapen or attract other organisms. That’s why we adore faux plants! If you’re using it for real plants, tuck a smaller container inside to protect the wood.
Let’s say you want to gift a showcase piece to a special Mama in your life. These Huntley found-wood urns are stunning, unique and have a gorgeous brown-bronze tone. These are best for faux florals or faux greenery unless you tuck a vase through the neck of the urn. They say go big or go home, so here’s something big that makes a statement on a kitchen island or centerpiece!
If you prefer to keep it simple, this little cutie is just right for kitchen counters. We like it as a tray for whatever tickles your fancy. A faux plant would look great as well as a real one, but it's made from raw natural wood, and moisture could introduce splitting or discoloration. (Just a friendly word of advice). Otherwise, the possibilities are endless.
For example, consider adding these cute, hand-carved paulownia wood acorns. They’re just right for a natural, neutral look and feel.
Or, how about some dried flowers? We’re bringing the Mother’s Day tradition back and giving it a modern farmhouse kick. These beauties look right at home on the handled wood tray or in one of the oval bowls above. Flowers that stick around a while, snug at home in their bowl. Now there’s a gift that will bring smiles!
Perhaps you’ve got a bowl or charming box at home that’s begging to hold something unique. Look no further! Get ready to adore this set of dried rukmani flowers. They have a delicate grace. The creamy-colored petals and buds add some pop to a room. They make for a great conversation starter, too, as they look so unique.
We hope this jumpstarted some ideas for you as we get close to Mother’s Day. Not that you need a specific day on the calendar to celebrate Moms, right? From both of us moms at Purple Rose Home, cheers to all the Rose Bud Moms out there!
