Mother’s Day is right around the corner and I wanted to give you guys some last minute green gift ideas that your Mom’s are sure to love! Giving green gifts not only is a great way to treat your family, but also a fantastic way to introduce them to healthy, green products which they may have never thought of trying. Here are some of my favourite last minute gift ideas!
Give Mom a family portrait. You know she has been wanting updated photos of you and the kids all year and this is a great way to do it! Buy a gift certificate for a family portrait like these from Photography by Marlow. Receive a signature portrait session for your Mom and your family. It’s not just a gift, but memories!
Spoil Mom with a luxurious and healthy gift-set like this one from Pacifica. Who doesn’t love the springy smell of lilacs? Buy it online and have it delivered to her door! Perfect if you can’t be there physically on Mother’s Day!
Skip the Flowers! Usually you show up with a bouquet in hand on Mother’s Day, but in reality those cut flowers come with a hefty carbon footprint. Opt for a live plant that she can plant in her garden! Bee Balm and Coneflower are lovely perennials which also attract butterflies and other pollinators. Beautiful and helpful for garden insects!
Let Mom relax with a lovely spa experience. Normally you would get her a giftcard to a mainstream utopian salon, but this year switch it up and try an eco-friendly alternative like this one in Whistler BC.
Last but not least, give the gift of time! Mom loves to be spoiled, but she mostly just wants to spend time with her children. Cook her her favourite meal with organic and local ingredients and serve it with a special cocktail with locally made spirits like these from the Odd Society Distillery or organic/Okanagan wines!
Hope that helps those of you with last minute shopping ideas! Have a good weekend everyone!
