With Mothers’ Day around the corner, you may be struggling to decide on the best gift to show your mum just how much she means to you. After all, there are so many options out there, so it can certainly feel overwhelming.
This annual special occasion presents us with the opportunity to express our gratitude and appreciation for the motherly figures in our lives. This Mothers’ Day, why not give our mothers and mother figures in our lives a gift that is kind to Mother Nature as well?
We have rounded up 4 of the best eco-friendly gift ideas that you can consider gifting to your mum on Mothers’ Day to make them feel extra loved.
1. Gift cards
If you aren’t exactly sure what your mum might like, gift cards from eco-conscious businesses are a great idea. Since the pandemic, many eco-friendly enterprises have struggled to keep operating, with many having to shut their doors temporarily. Thus, this would be the best time to support local eco-conscious businesses while gifting your mum something she will surely love.
Some may think that gift cards are the “easy way out” since you are not really picking out a gift. However, by giving your mum a gift card to spend, you are treating her to the opportunity to select what she would like for herself while supporting an eco-friendly business. It allows her the freedom to pick out what she truly wants and gives you the satisfaction of knowing that your mum will get a gift she truly enjoys.
2. House plants
Instead of getting a bouquet of flowers, consider gifting your mum some indoor house plants, especially if she has a green thumb. Apart from the obvious benefits which include improved air quality, plants are recognised for having relaxing and stress-relieving effects. Giving a plant to your mum this Mothers’ Day is a lovely and thoughtful reminder of the importance of good health in the coming year.
Moreover, some plants have certain meanings. The peace lily plant, for example, is a popular indoor plant that is a symbol of peace and hope. They are often the go-to choice for gifting to someone dear.
3. Eco-friendly home décor
While home décor can be incredibly personal, with every person having their own preferences of how they would like their space to look, it can also be a functional gift. The trick when it comes to gifting home décor to someone is to go for pieces that are not only decorative but also functional. Simple and minimalistic designs can never go wrong and will never go out of style!
One excellent option is to gift your mum a stylish vase. Vases would be able to add an instant uplift to the room it is placed. And because they would likely be on display all year round, they are a constant reminder of your love and appreciation. Consider taking it up a notch by gifting the vase with some fresh flowers in them for an extra thoughtful touch.
4. Sustainable kitchen ware
For practical gift ideas, sustainable kitchen ware is your answer. Who doesn’t love eco-friendly kitchen products? This Mothers’ Day, you could consider gifting your mum some sustainable kitchen storage solutions. These would allow her to organise the kitchen with ease. You know what they say, a clean kitchen is a happy kitchen!
Another great idea is what we would call an upgraded premium goody bag. You could give your mum reusable silicone ziplock bags filled with her favourite snacks. This adds a personal touch to the gift and will undoubtedly make your mum incredibly happy. What’s more, she would be able to reuse these bags in the future after she is done enjoying her little treats.
Celebrate and show your mother just how much she means to you and make her feel like a queen this Mothers’ Day! However, it is essential to remember that no matter what you choose to gift to your mum, it is the thought that counts. Your mum will surely appreciate almost anything you gift to her because it is from you, so there’s really no need to stress too much about it.
