What Makes These Mother’s Day Gifts Eco-Friendly?
When I shop for a sustainable and environmentally friendly Mother’s Day gift, I look for items that are ethically made, and will last a very long time—and if the item is sentimental, that’s even better!
Mother’s Day is such a special holiday devoted to the women who love us unconditionally, so when it comes to eco-friendly gifts, I advise you to skip the reusable paper towels (and similar items) and go for something sentimental or self-care related (you want the gift to be for her and not for the household).
With that said, below are several hand-picked eco-friendly gift ideas for mom that she’ll love, appreciate and actually use!
This sustainable Mother’s Day gift list consists of cruelty-free makeup, organic skincare products, ethical fashion and sentimental keepsakes that are compostable!
Sustainable Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

Parent-Themed Ceramic Planter
I really love this planter by MsRight because it displays a mom holding an umbrella over her child while she gets rained on. It’s a great way to show mom that you value her and that you appreciate all of her sacrifices throughout the years. This planter is also ceramic while the base is made from sustainable bamboo—a lovely eco-friendly mother’s day gift!

A Wicker Picnic Set (And Take Her Out For A Picnic!)
Many moms (including myself) love to just spend good ole’ quality time with the kids. So a picnic set is a wonderful gift to give mom for Mother’s Day. And to make it even more special, fill it with all of her favorite snacks and goodies, and take her on a picnic!

Mom-Themed Electric Wax Warmer
You could give mom a candle, but that’ll burn out after a few hours and the glass jar will most likely be thrown out. That’s why I love wax warmers because they’re healthier, and there are no flames involved. This one by Elanze Desgns is designed especially for mom!

Every woman needs a high quality bathrobe, and the bamboo waffle bathrobe by Ettitude makes a fantastic gift!
