Mothers Day Gifts for the Green Mom: Environmentally Friendly Gift Ideas for Mothers Day

November 4, 2020

 

Mom will appreciate the thoughtfulness shown by her loved ones who have taken the time the time to explore her interests.

 

Natural Gifts for Mom

Mother’s Day is beautifully timed with the beginning of the gardening season. A flat of flowers, vegetable or herbs for the gardening mother makes a wonderful gift. An ornamental bush or tree is also a thoughtful gift for the environmentally aware mom with a green thumb.

For the crafty mom, unbleached yarns or materials with low-impact dyes can get her creative juices flowing. Search craft stores for organic wools and cottons. Pick up knitting needles and crochet hooks made of bamboo to round out the gift.

Books are always a great gift for any occasion. The book doesn’t have to be specific to green living, but can be targeted at specific areas of living an environmentally life. Books on gardening, crafts, herbs, and do it yourself project are just some of the subjects mom may be interested in.

A water filter accompanied by refillable to go cups is a thoughtful gift for the busy environmentally conscious mother on the go. Not only a timesaver as she will not have to shop, store and recycle those landfill clogging plastic bottles, a water filter will save her money in the long run. She’ll be reminded of the thoughtfulness and support shown by the gift each time she turns on the tap.

 

Personalized Green Mothers Day Gifts

Economical homemade natural products for mom’s beauty routine may also be the perfect Mothers Day Gift. Natural skin and hair care products can be personalized with her favorite herbal scent by adding essential oils to the homemade offering.

A basic moisturizer for mom can be made with equal parts of olive oil and emulsifying wax. Simply melt the wax in a water bath, and mix in the olive oil. Add a few drops of her favorite essential oil and pour into a decorative jar. Tie a handwritten note around the jar with wishes for a Green Mothers Day.

If the perfect gift is still elusive, don’t forget the gift card, which will allow mom to pick out items for herself. Online personalization is available, but even off the rack cards come in so many designs that it will be easy to choose the one that fits mom’s personality.

Emphasize the environmentally friendly theme by forgoing the fancy wrapping and tucking the gift into a reusable shopping tote made of recycled or natural fabric.
