Gardening & Gifts for Moms

As seen on Fox & Friends – May 13, 2023

Spring is here, and it’s time to show our appreciation for the wonderful mothers in our lives. Both Pauli and my mom LOVE spending time in yard…not only just being outside to enjoy the garden, but also getting their hands dirty and their minds clear. So gardening is always my go-to for Mother’s Day gifts. Here are some of my favorite (and DIY-friendly) outdoor products and projects for the lovely ladies in your life that enjoy time in the garden.

My wife Pauli’s love languages are acts of service and quality time…so one thing I know she really appreciates is when I get the kids out in the yard and make sure it’s up to par for Mother’s Day! And tackling yard maintenance is much easier with the right tools for the job! One of my go-to’s for outdoor power equipment is EGO. EGO is the #1 battery platform in terms of market share, performance, and reviews!

If you’re looking to start you EGO yard tool collection, I’d recommend the 765 CFM EGO POWER+ Blower and the EGO POWER+ 56-volt 15-in Cordless String Trimmer. A powerful blower is an essential item for clearing grass clippings or flowers that have fallen in the Spring and Summer and overall, helpful for maintaining your yard all season long. The 765 CFM EGO POWER+ Blower is the newest brushless cordless electric blower from EGO and is the most powerful handheld blower on the market, with air speeds up to 200 MPH and an average run time of 90 minutes! It’s also quiet, lightweight and compact, to help makes yard cleanup quick and simple.

A trimmer can also help you put the finishing touches on your landscaping and is a great lawn maintenance tool, to remove weeds in hard-to-reach areas and trimming tall grass. The EGO POWER+ 56-volt 15-in Cordless String Trimmer is equipped with POWERLOAD™ technology automatically winds your trimmer line for you, all you have to do is feed the line into the head and press the button. The shaft length is easily adjustable and you can get up to 45 minutes of run time on a single charge!

Both tools can be powered by the same EGO battery, making them versatile and efficient for all your lawn maintenance needs. You can find these EGO products at your local Lowe’s store or on

And of course, a gift card to Lowes is always a safe bet to gift to mom. With a wide range of outdoor products, tools, and supplies, your mom is sure to find something she loves.

Next, we have Eley Hose Reels, a company that offers rugged, durable, and reliable garden hoses and hose reels that are perfect for any gardening project. Their products are made from heavy aluminum and are coated with a durable powder-coat finish, making them perfect for any outdoor environment.

Plus, their polyurethane garden hose is drinking water safe, kink-resistant, and lightweight, making it perfect for any mom who loves to garden. Eley Hose Reels are so great that they are backed by an industry-leading 10-YEAR No-Leak & No-Fail Guarantee & Warranty!

K Rain’s Pro-S Spray with Stop Flow is a great gift for the mom who’s all about water conservation while keeping the lawn green! This product is unique because if the nozzle gets damaged or removed, the water flow stops. That means no “geyser effect” with gallons of water pouring out because someone accidentally clipped your spray head with a lawn trimmer. K Rain offers four patterns: Adjustable 0°-360°, Full circle, Half circle, and Quarter circle.

You can find K Rain Pro-S sprays at Lowes and other major retailers!

If you have a mom (like Pauli) who likes to tackle larger outdoor projects and maybe loves tractors as much as me…Ventrac has some excellent options.

The Power Buckets are designed for heavy-duty material handling tasks, such as moving gravel, dirt, and mulch. Their Tough Cut Brush Mowers are ideal for tackling overgrown areas with dense vegetation, such as fields, pastures, and roadways.

Both the Power Buckets and Tough Cut Brush Mowers are built with heavy-duty materials to ensure long-lasting durability and reliability. They are also easy to attach and detach from the Ventrac tractor, making it easy to switch between tasks. With these attachments, you can transform your Ventrac tractor into a powerful workhorse that can handle a wide range of outdoor projects with ease.

The Barrette Outdoor Living Pergola is the perfect addition to any outdoor space, offering shade and a beautiful structure to enhance the look of your yard. It’s a great place for mom to relax and enjoy the outdoors. Barrette Outdoor Living also offers beautiful fencing and railing options to help beautify any outdoor space. With their wide range of products, you can choose from classic, contemporary, or ornamental styles to create the perfect outdoor space for your mom.

And last but not least! No backyard is complete without some beautiful greenery. Costa Farms offers a wide range of plants that are perfect for mom to complete her garden AND to bring some of the garden inside with resilient indoor plants! Here are some of our favorites:

From succulents to flowering plants, you’re sure to find something that will make your mom’s yard look stunning. And right now, they are running a promo for 20% off Mother’s Day Gift Guide Plants!
