Fortunately, we’re here to help make this Mother’s Day celebration the best yet with these 10 eco-friendly mother’s day gift ideas.
10 Eco Friendly Mother’s Day Gift Ideas
So, what do you get someone who is environmentally friendly? Well, at Green Eco Dream, we have an entire collection dedicated to eco-conscious gift sets. We take the guesswork out of sustainable giving, so you can spend less time shopping and more time celebrating. You’ll find makeup sets, hair care kits, and gift packs for the kitchen and cleaning.
If you want to combine several eco friendly mother’s day gifts to create your own gift set, here are 10 ideas.
1. Bath Soaking Salts
As one of the best presents for Mother’s Day, you can treat your mom to an at-home spa session and an excuse to unwind and relax a little. Well Kept’s Bath Soaking Salts are perfect for the occasion. It features a blend of epsom or Himalayan salts with botanical ingredients like eucalyptus, rosemary, and rose petals. The blends will create a subtle aroma while the florals float luxuriously on the top of the water. The cute glass jar can even be reused afterwards—perhaps as a vase for your gifted bouquet!
2. Natural Sea Sponge
But maybe you’re wondering, what can I get instead of flowers for Mother’s Day? Self-care can come without a trip to the local florist. Well Kept also has a luxurious Natural Sea Sponge. It’s sustainably harvested in Florida and provides one of the most sumptuous scrubbing tools available to us! Used in the bath or shower, it’ll gently exfoliate and cleanse—all while imparting antibacterial and antifungal properties.
3. Organic Body Oil
Think of Fat and the Moon’s Organic Body Oil in Clary Sage as a superfood for skin! Treat your mother to oil that works perfectly for a massage or a little self-love practice after the shower. Not only will it feel great as she applies it, but it also smells amazing and is packed with vitamins to support healthy, happy skin.
4. Eyeshadow Trio
Elate Cosmetics has an Eye Shadow Trio that could become your mom’s favorite go-to before a night out or a Mother’s Day dinner with you! The palette is made with sustainable bamboo and the beautiful shades are made with natural, vegan, and cruelty-free ingredients. She can even add water to create liquid brow or eyeliner, or mix with gloss to create her own lip color. Think of it as Mother’s Day gifting that keeps on giving!
5. Seed Moisture Leave-In Treatment
For dried, damaged, dull hair that needs a bit of TLC, the Seed Moisture Leave-In Treatment from Seed Phytonutrients is here to save the day. Your mom can massage it into her hair before she goes about her day. In no time, she’ll notice lush locks and repaired roots.
6. Recycled Daypack Backpack
For vacations, walks around town, and even the commute to work, Got Bag’s Recycled Daypack Backpack is a cute, comfortable, eco-conscious essential for any mom. Made from recycled ocean plastic, each bag diversts 5.5 pounds of waste from our oceans—instead using it for good in a minimalist-design, laptop-ready daypack.
7. Zero Waste Home Book
If you’re looking for sustainable Mother’s Day gifts for a mom who’s new to having “sustainability” in her vocabulary, introduce her to the world of low waste living with Bea Johnson’s book, Zero Waste Home. It provides step-by-step tips and inspiring stories to help your mom reduce her impact, save money, and improve her health. Maybe she’ll even pass it down to you after she’s done reading it!
8. Bamboo Bottle Infuser
Whether she’s a coffee addict, tea connoisseur, or just someone trying to drink more water, your mom would love a Bamboo Bottle Infuser. It can be used to infuse her favorite source of caffeine, or fruits and herbs. Or it can just be used as a reusable water bottle! Perfect for daily use or weekend adventures, it’ll keep hot drinks hot for 12 hours and cold drinks cold for 24.
9. Beeswax Food Wrap
How do you give someone an eco-friendly gift? Well, you can incorporate it into another gift! Take for instance Beeswax Food Wraps. They can be used to wrap sandwiches, baked goods, and snacks, and then tossed in a picnic basket to surprise your mom with! She’ll cherish the time spent with you, then have an eco-friendly alternative to saran wrap to take home!
10. Chef’s Baking Set
Don’t moms make the most delicious meals? If your mom is known to get crafty in the kitchen, consider giving her the Chef’s Baking Set from Full Circle Home. Made from organic cotton and available in multiple colors, the set includes an apron, oven mitt, trivet, dish towel, and parchment baking paper. You can even surprise her with it after treating her to a delicious culinary creation of your own (perhaps breakfast in bed?!).
Your Love is the Best Mother’s Day Gift Idea
Remember, you don’t have to buy anything for your mom. Simply recognizing her and spending quality time with her is more than enough. But when you do need Mother’s Day gifts for that special lady in your life—the one you wouldn’t exist without—then Green Eco Dream will help you find something suitable and sustainable.
