Why Buy Eco-Friendly Mother’s Day Gifts
Eco-friendly is somewhat of a buzzword now along with ‘crunchy’ and ‘going green’. It can have a range of meaning in many conversations, but typically boils down to promoting a healthier earth for all of us to live on. When looking for eco-friendly mother’s day gifts be sure to check out those that come in the form of recycled products used to manufacture goods, products bought with the intention of cutting down on waste, or by giving food products or growable gifts. What mom wouldn’t want a gift that helps better the earth for her kids? Uncommon Goods is a B Corporation, which uses the power of business to solve social and environmental problems. They have some amazing Mother’s Day Gifts, see the full list here (if you’re buying a gift for your wife, they’ve got that covered too) and check out my picks for the Top 10.
For the Chef
This butter churner gives mom the ability to whip up some homemade spread whenever she wants. As a fun tool for kids to use too, they will beg her to help out in the kitchen.
An assortment of salts, including one infused with a vintage merlot, will kick her meals up a notch! It’s always fun to get something for our moms that they might not buy for themselves.
For the Gardener
A rosemary and thyme string garden is a living sculpture made entirely of herbs.
What mom doesn’t love succulents? And how fun would they be to grow on your wall, right in your kitchen? This piece of living art will catch the eyes of everyone!
Along with a bottle of wine, give mom the plant nanny, the gift that recycles the wine bottle and waters her plants. Make the gardening endeavor just a little bit greener.
For the Sentimentalist
The lace heart necklace is cut, sewn and dipped in gold. This handmade jewelry is produced through a fair trade organization and provides stable income for economically struggling or displaced communities of Colombian artisans.
This sweet recycled necklace is a mother bird with her little chicks. Moms love their flock and this is a sentiment that mom will cherish for quite some time.
For the Techie
A vase that charges your phone and holds fresh cut flowers? That sounds like a moms dream! What a way to brighten up the nightstand.
Whatever you choose to buy for your mom/wife/friend, I hope you have a wonderful day celebrating your loved one!
