Mother’s Day Empty Pot Gift

Mother's Day Empty Pot Gift


A few years ago, my son brought home one of my favorite gifts ever. It was a small bag of seeds, tucked inside an empty pot, with a gift tag that read –


“This isn’t just an empty pot.
There’s something you should know.
Inside the pot there is a seed
That, just like me, will grow.

The plant that grows will someday bloom
And remind you of the seed so small.
But without your love and tender care,
The seed wouldn’t grow at all.”


We spent the next several weeks, watering the seeds and watching them grow into beautiful flowers. It was such a thoughtful gift and I’m thankful for his Teacher who helped him put it all together.

With a few seeds (or bulbs) and an empty pot, this Mother’s Day gift is guaranteed to be a hit!

    Cute idea, only I can’t print this. I would love to be able to. The button is not working.

    1. Thank you for bringing that to our attention, Vicki! I’ve fixed the button, but I’m going to email you a copy as well.
