If mom’s got a bit of a black thumb (or even if she doesn't!), she’ll definitely appreciate a plant that practically grows itself. After popping in a seed cartridge, the battery-powered Click and Grow “smart garden” doses out the right amounts of water, fertilizer, and air necessary to grow flowers, herbs or tiny vegetables indoors. Pick from plants like basil, coriander, chili peppers or mini tomatoes and she’ll have fresh ingredients to add to homemade meals—including the ones you drop by to share with her—all summer long.
