Mother’s Day Green Gift Ideas
Mothers give year-round, and Mother’s Day is a time for giving your mother something to remind her of how much you appreciate her, and all that she does.
With Mother’s Day soon approaching you may be questioning (or panicking) as to what you will get your mom this year. Traditionally, flowers and candy are the most popular mother’s day gifts, and although they are a welcomed gift, you may wish to give your mother something a little less “traditional” or at least something she can enjoy for a longer than it takes a flower to wilt.
If you are an eco-conscience shopper you may be considering a gift that is earth friendly as well as useful and thoughtful. Even if your mother is not as eco-conscience as you may be, she will most likely appreciate not only your thoughtfulness towards her, but also towards the earth.
So what are some of the top green gifts for Mom?
Robe Gifts for Mom
Organic cotton, bamboo, and linen robes are one of the top eco-friendly gifts for mom. Robes are used for a plethora of occasions, making it one of the most useful green gifts. Whether your mother’s present robe is tattered, or she enjoys sitting in her robe while sipping coffee, or poolside, a robe is a gift that she can certainly use during the entire year.
In addition, robes made from organic cotton, bamboo, linen and other natural (free from harmful chemicals) tend to be the most durable, softest, and made of the highest quality, thus giving your mom the very best.
Spa Gifts for Mom
Natural spa gifts for mom are also very popular, including soaps, scrubs, and soaks. Soaps and scrubs are also a nice addition to a robe, or a set of organic cotton bath towels. If the mother you are shopping for is a new mom, you may want to consider a “Mom-to-Be” gift that will include all of the natural ingredient spa products to help her prepare or sustain new motherhood.
Eco-Friendly Jewelry & Scarf Gifts for Mom
Other fabulous green gifts for Mom include eco-friendly jewelry and scarves. Give your mom the opportunity to show off your green gift by giving her eco-friendly jewelry, or a scarf made from bamboo, or organic cotton. Scarves (like robes) can be worn for many occasions. Women by nature are highly creative, and we use scarves for just about everything from wearing it around our necks, wearing it as a belt, in our hair, or even as an emergency cloth diaper when absolutely necessary.
Many times, eco-friendly jewelry is made from recycled material, or is made by an organization that helps those who are supporting their families by making jewelry and other fine green goods. Are Naturals offers eco-friendly jewelry that is not only stylish, but a portion of the sales is used to build school houses for the children of the Indian women who make the jewelry. By purchasing this jewelry, you will not only impress your mother for Mother’s Day, but you will also be helping other mothers.
Kitchen Gifts for Mom
Kitchen gifts for mom are also a favorite amongst Mother’s Day gifts. Is your mom the best cook in the world, or does she tends to burn the meatloaf from time to time? Either way, receiving a kitchen gift will most likely put a smile on her face, especially if it is a kitchen gift that is beautifully designed. Are Naturals has a wide selection of specialty measuring spoons, and scoops that will delight even the most novice of cooks.
Other kitchen and dining gifts may include serving bowls, butter dishes, and specialty condiment dishes that will not only impress your mother, but also her guests. These types of gifts could be considered “keepsake” gifts that will last for many years to come, offering many years of delight and remembrance of the Mother’s Day that you gave your mother the best gift she ever received!
Whatever you decide to get the mom in your life for Mother’s Day, the most important ingredients for the “perfect Mother’s Day gift” is love, care, and thoughtfulness, all the things that moms give to us every day of the year!
