Make your presents known

plant the future!

Whether she’s hippie dippie or haute couture, there’s no one like your mom. Give her a gift that best suits her personality.

Mother Nature
Plant the Future terrariums, mini gardens, and figurines ($22-$650) are a step up from the potted begonias you made in elementary school. Browse the stunning selection of succulents at the new pop-up store in Aventura Mall (19501 Biscayne Boulevard, Aventura; 305-571-7177).

Nostalgic Shutterbug
Mom loves her crumpled, wallet-size portraits. Propel her into the 21st century with the Uncommon Capsule phone case ($40), which displays pics while keeping her cell safe.

Queen Mum
She was the guest of honor at your childhood tea parties. Relive the memories while sharing scones on the veranda at the Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden Mother’s Day Tea ($27, members; $37, nonmembers). R.S.V.P. (required) to 305-663-8059.

petite chic tote!On-the-Go Gal
Mom’s bottomless bag is a treasure trove of tchotchkes from who knows when. Help her carry them in style with a monogrammed Petite Chic tote ($200).

Shape Shifter
You can both shake what your mamas gave you when you join her at Body & Soul’s Dancing with the Moms VideoSync class ($22, nonmembers) on Saturday, noon-1 p.m. Registration (required) at 305-441-2348.

sura cuff!Sharp Dresser
Add a new bauble to her jewelry box with a locally designed gold and mother-of-pearl cuff from Sura Jewelry (by 561-702-9422 or yeliz@surajewelry.com, $355). If you’re lucky, she might even let you borrow it.

Pretty Woman
She taught you to share. Spring for the Mother & Daughter Spa Day ($230 per person) at the Mandarin Oriental. Sip mimosas, enjoy a side-by-side massage, and conclude with a pedi for each of you. R.S.V.P. (required) to 305-913-8332.

Go ahead. Make her day.
