Mother's day is just around the corner, and whether you are the mom or you want to celebrate your mom (or mother figure!) we've compiled a list of 15 Eco-friendly gift ideas separated into three main categories: Relaxation, Gardening and Cooking. We also snuck in some gift sets to give you added inspiration. Celebrating in person might not be a possibility this year, but you can send her a little something to show her you’re thinking about her.

Relaxation Gifts:

Right now, Mom's may be feeling a little extra pressure from having their routines disrupted and having extra tasks to juggle. They may appreciate a little pampering, so here are a few ideas that can help you set Mom up for some relaxation time. These items can be used to set up a whole theme for a day at the spa, in your very own home!

Eye masks are a great way to make sure to relax! Aside from the obvious of getting to lay there with your eyes closed, you can pop them in the freezer for extra cooling and also add essential oils or dried lavender for a little aromatherapy. Eye pillows are used to go into a slightly deeper relaxation state as it blocks out light and also adds a little pressure, relieving the tension in those little muscles around the eyes.

We've included some super soft and silky Eco-friendly pajamas, robes and slippers to make her feel like she's at the spa.

Gardening Gifts:

Gardening is a great way to get outside and be active. It has lots of health benefits and can also be very satisfying to make a meal from the fruits of your labor. Here are a few things needed to make sure you don't burn in the sun and also to help tackle those particularly muddy areas. We've also added some blankets to enjoy some nice quiet time in your garden, reading or even writing in your journal to note the progress of your garden!  

Gardening can come indoors with the Plant Sax. They are decorative pot "covers" that give a modern twist to traditional flower pot decor. They have a great selection to complement your decor, but they have the added benefit of being lighter than traditional ceramic pots.

Kitchen Gifts:

Is Mom spending more time in the kitchen? Is she wanting to dive into the zero waste lifestyle? Here are a few items to get her started.

We often think it's impossible to cut down on plastic, but the Frusacks and beeswax wraps help us do just that. Frusack produce bags are not only reusable, but compostable too! Carry them to the farmer's market (or grocery store) and cut down on your plastic waste. Beeswax wraps can be used to cover almost any food that plastic wrap can. Use them to wrap your sandwiches or to cover that bowl of salad. They cannot be used to wrap raw meat or fish. Cloth napkins replace paper napkins (obviously!) and come in an assortment of fun colors and patterns.
