Call me old fashioned, but I believe that Mother’s Day gifts should be sustainable and sentimental.

Sure, you can add a supplemental ‘funny gift’ for some laughter, but overall, moms are special people that deserve a thoughtful gift filled with love and appreciation.

That’s why I love shopping for sustainable gifts—not only will they last for many years to come, but they’re made of material that’s non-toxic and environmentally friendly as well.


Hand-crafted and personalized creations are my favorite type of sustainable gifts because they’re intimate. They show mom that you made some serious effort when choosing a gift that represents the strong bond which the two of you share.

So if your goal for Mother’s Day this year is to aim for sustainable gift giving with a personal touch, then these Mother’s Day gift ideas will get you inspired to get mom that perfect earth-friendly present that she will hold dear to her heart and cherish forever.

You might even become her favorite child.
