Mommy Greenest: Mother's Day Gift Guide 2012
While Mother Nature is undisputedly the center of attention this coming weekend, don't forget that there's another Mother-celebrating Sunday on the horizon ...

Well, Earth Day is once again upon us, and, as a result, there’s been a whole lot of Mother Nature attention-lavishing going down as of late (also, I don't think my inbox will ever recover). But let us not forget that sneaking up in just a few weeks is another very special Sunday dedicated to another special mother — the one who you call "momma."
Is there a much-cherished MILG — Mom You’d Like to Green — in your life? Then consider bestowing her with one of these home- and garden-centric Mother's Day gifts ranging from whimsical (vintage kitty decor!) to practical (gardening gloves!) and everything in between. All are made from eco-friendly materials and/or are handmade with the same thing doled out by your momma ... TLC. And since you're also probably budgeting for a beautiful bouquet of
flowers, most of my picks this year fall under the $50 mark.
