Sunday is Mother-in-Law Day and Garden Media has gift ideas for every kind of "mom"

Sansevieria 'Mother-in-Law's Tongue' from Costa Farms

Whether you’ve known her for years or you’re new to the family, every mother-in-law deserves recognition and thanks.

Sunday, Oct. 26 marks Mother-in-Law Day, a special day to honor the woman who gave birth to your spouse and the grandmother of your children. This unofficial holiday offers a chance to get to know “mom” and show her the appreciation she deserves.

“Whether you’ve known her for years or you’re new to the family, every mother-in-law deserves recognition and thanks,” says Katie Dubow of Garden Media Group, a public relations firm specializing in the gardening and outdoor lifestyle industry.

Before choosing a gift, think about her interests and hobbies. Everyone loves a present that shows some thoughtfulness.

Not sure what her interests are? Surprise her with one of these sure-to-please gardening and houseplant ideas:

Costa Farms® Sansevieria Houseplant ($9.99-$24.99)

If “mom” doesn’t have much of a green thumb, look no further than this durable houseplant. Coined Mother-in-Law’s Tongue, this Plant of Steel from Costa Farms has stiff, upright leaves rimmed in yellow or gold. Its striking appearance makes it perfect for both modern and contemporary styles – and anyone can keep it alive.

As an added bonus, it keeps “mom” healthy by naturally filtering the air and adding much needed moisture to a room. Visit http://www.costafarms.com to learn more.

Amaryllis bulb kit, Longfield Gardens ($16.95-$64.95)
