Green Mother’s Day Gift Guide

 

It’s that time of year.  That day we honor and lavish love and attention on the one person in our lives who has likely shown up for everything – from carrying us for 9 months and enduring many  sleepless nights to sorting out the tiniest details in each and every birthday party, managing homework chaos, fine tuning our weddings and later, taking care of our children as if they were her own. This Sunday is the day to show mom (and aunties, grandmas and mother in laws) how much you adore her and give back a little of the love she has shown those around her. Make this Mother’s Day even more special by giving back to our other mother: Mother Nature.

For the Wine-Loving Mom

Made from recycled wine bottles, these stemless wine glasses come from a sustainable source and will look great at your mom’s next dinner party or cocktail get-together.

While you’re in the vino mode, treat your mom to a case of eco-friendly wines that have been organically grown, produced efficiently in organic vineyards or sustainably farmed. Read on about this brand that instantly became more eco-friendly by simply changing the shape of its bottle.

For the Bubble-Bathing Mom

Skip the throw-away flowers and shower mom with this this “bouquet” of shampoos, soaps, lotions and bubbles – all made from natural ingredients, safe synthetics and no animal products.

Give your mom something yummy to wrap herself in after getting out of the tub, such as this velour robe, made from soft organic cotton. Better yet, have it delivered to her via CarbonFree shipping, using minimal packaging made from recycled materials.  Also note that any unavoidable emissions will be offset by supporting renewable energy through CarbonFund.org.

For the Garden-Tending Mom

If your mom can only dream of having a beautiful, outdoor garden, help her set up an eco-friendly indoor garden with Growbottle. Made from re-purposed wine bottles, these innovative products (which also come with starter seeds) will allow mom to grow herbs and micro-greens inside the house.

We think your mom will love marking her seedlings and sprouts with these reclaimed wood garden spikes.

Whatever you decide for the moms in your life, this Mother’s Day, remember to make it all about them, their likes and interests. It’s mom’s day to be queen!
