Trying to find ideas what to give mom this Sunday? Most of us would want to take our
moms out to dinner. Or maybe have a grand vacation somewhere. But at some days, we are on a tight budget. Fret not, because I found an ideal gift idea for moms that is really affordable and may genuinely last forever!

Last Tuesday,  I was lucky to be one mommy bloggers who were invited to a mini succulent planting workshop by Botanophilic Davao in partnership with Trust Home Depot. The Say it with Succulent Pop Up Shop basically taught us some tips on how to plant, propagate and grow succulents. Surprisingly, I find it easy and fun to get addicted to. It is so relaxing.You just have to love greens and I don't mind getting my hands dirty.

So here's what happened during the workshop.

Ching, owner of Botanophilic Davao taught us how to properly plant succulents

Ching gave us tips on how to propagate

Ching, Psychology major and already an entrepreneur at 22,  owns Botanophilic Davao. A botanophilic herself is a green thumb at an early age, Ching can actually teach the do's and donts in taking good  care of succulents, she does ornamental plants  too! So admirable!

Wrapping up the session with an intimate Tea Time with mommy bloggers over Marks&Spencer signature tea (Organic Greean Tea with Lemon Infusion) plus a lot of yummy cookies that pairs perfectly with the tea.

My new fave tea!
Assorted Marks&Spencer Cookies. My personal fave?
