But no need to worry, we’ve got you covered with a few green gift ideas sure to show your mom, and Mother Earth, just how much you care. Plus having a Loyalty+ account makes it even easier to find tons of great gifts your mother is sure to love even if you’re on a budget.
I Made This For You, Ma’
Making your mom a cool gift is still one of the best, eco-friendly ways to show her just how much you care. We’re not talking about a painted rock with “Thank you Mom” on it. A handmade card crafted from recycled materials is a great way to show your appreciation for your mom on Mother’s Day. Include pictures of you and your family on your favorite vacation. Handwritten notes expressing exactly how much she means to you are a good addition as well. The time, creativity and effort you put into your upcycled creation will surely bring your mom to tears making all your siblings jealous! Tee Hee.
Plant Some Love Together
Is your mom a garden girl in her golden years? Why not plant a tree together in her honor? Trees are a great, green gift idea for mom. They provide us with shade, clean air, and create a habitat for small wildlife like birds. Your mom will delight in gazing at all the wonders of nature the tree brings to her doorstep while sipping tea or having her morning cup of coffee, all thanks to you. Planting a tree is a lasting and impactful eco-gift that she will enjoy watching grow year after year.
Time to Show Mom You Care
Time is one of our most precious resources. And after a year of being apart, just spending some time together could be all your mom wants this year. So, make it special and green! Take her to a farmer’s market and let her choose what she likes, then prepare a beautiful meal for her using the locally sourced veggies and meats she chose. Or you can remix an old family recipe with your local finds. Either way, it’s a good way to spend time with your mom on her special day while creating new Earth-friendly family traditions and reducing your carbon footprint.
These are all incredible ways to honor your mom and Mother Nature on Mother’s Day. But, if your mom is into more traditional ways of expressing appreciation, we got ya’ covered there too.
