Mother’s Day is just around the corner and if you still haven’t found the perfect gift for your mom, here are a few ideas that will leave Mother Nature smiling as well.
Plant a tree in honor of your mom. Forget the roses and give your mom something that will last a lifetime. Planting a tree is a great symbolic way of showing how her love and care has helped you grow. Visit American Forests “The Gift of Tree” and donate in your mom’s name. If live in NYC, you might also want to check out MillionTreesNYC.
If you’re still set in giving mom a bouquet of flowers, think about going organic. OrganicBouquet.com has a wide range of eco-friendly and organic floral gifts. The company also provides outstanding resources for farm workers and artisans and have selections beyond the traditional roses and tulips.
Indulge your mom’s gardening passion. If your mom loves gardening and growing her own herbs, then Garden in the Bag, or one of Bambeco’s “pocket gardens,” like the Gourmet Salad Garden Kit, is bound to please.
Pamper mom with a basket of organic bath and body goodies. For some mom, mother’s day is their chance to relax and pamper themselves. Why not indulge her with a basket full of organic bath and body goodies? Clovertree Apothecary makes some yummy sugar body scrubs, creams, salts and oils — not for eating!
For sweets she can eat, give her the best organic chocolate. For moms with sweet tooth, you can never go wrong with chocolates. The Daily Green listed 19 of the best organic and fair trade chocolates so you’re sure to find one that will suit your mom’s taste.
