Great for Moms with the proverbial black thumb—and more lasting than your standard flower gift—this set of five succulents, planted in a mahogany trough, is incredibly easy to care for: Just water the soil when it feels dry. The arrangement will survive in shade or full sun, but should be kept out of extreme hot or cold temperatures.
Edible-Flowers Kit: Skip the garden-variety box of chocolates. Instead, charm an epicure with a trio of flowers that can top spring salads. The kit includes seeds for lemon pansies, nasturtiums, and violas. To buy: $55.96, redenvelope.com.

I'm not usually a big fan of succulents - I live in Southern California, close to the desert, so I've seen them my whole life, and yanked them out of yards, when I wanted to plant something I thought was prettier. But this idea? Combining and artfully arranging tiny succulents of different colors? And hanging it on a wall? This I like!
