I am a mom! Even though my family knows me well, they are sometimes stumped to find gifts for me. Although I always say I just want a nap and a clean house when obligatory holidays roll around, it is nice to receive a gift sometimes.
If you really want to give Mom a little extra love and attention, surprise her with one of these eco-friendly gifts out of the blue! Giving Mom a gift “just because” will brighten her day!
Here are 5 eco-friendly gifts for moms:
1. Eco-friendly wine glasses: If the matriarch of your family enjoys wine or any beverage, the eco-friendly wine glasses by Lifefactory are great! I love the silicone grips (nothing upsets Mom more than spilling her wine), and I love their durability. These are my favorite wine glasses to enjoy a beverage in a hot tub or down at the beach for sunset.
I was recently listening to an interview with a South African shaman. He recommended that we wrap ourselves in a blanket or robe for meditation as it amplifies our connection to our heartbeat and breath. Busy moms may find it difficult to find time for meditation, but we can all benefit from the sensation of being wrapped. We swaddle our babies. Why not swaddle ourselves in organic cotton! Under the Canopy makes a beautiful organic cotton robe. The company’s brand values are organic, authentic, sustainable, and pioneering.https://underthecanopy.com/mission/
3. A massage
There is nothing better than a good massage to release tension and promote health. The benefits of massage are countless, yet mothers often don’t feel the extra expense or time is warranted. Look for a massage therapist that uses quality essential oils. Buy mom a gift certificate and take care of the children for her. She will come back a happier, healthier mom!
4. Yoga Class Pack
Whether Mom is already a practicing yogini or an absolute beginner, a yoga class pack is a wonderful eco-friendly gift. Yoga has made me a better mother. It allows me to stay healthy, calm, equanimous, and reflective. I set my intention when I began my teacher training years ago to improve my relationship with my teenage daughter. Through my yoga practice I learned how to relate and support her as she moves through the transition from childhood to adulthood with grace.
5. Anything from Dr. Hauschka!
I love every Dr. Hauschka product I have ever tried. If the mom in your life doesn’t already use Dr. Hauschka, she will be impressed you found such high quality, eco-friendly gifts. I love the company’s mission:
A Mission to Support the Healing of Humanity and the Earth
The founder of Dr. Hauschka manufacturer WALA Heilmittel gave his company a mission that continues to this day. Dr. Rudolf Hauschka’s goal “to support the healing of humanity and the earth” informs not only the culture of Dr. Hauschka Skin Care and its manufacturer, WALA Heilmittel, but also the company’s business practices, production methods and the very nature of the company’s products themselves.
Inspired by our vision of a culture of care, we’ve created a company powered by principle. Everything we do is in the interest of fostering well-being in the world, from our ecologically conscious methods of growing and sourcing ingredients to our one-of-a-kind manufacturing processes and international fair trade initiatives.https://www.dr.hauschka.com/en_US/about-us/our-mission/
Some of my favorite Dr. Hauschka products are:
No matter what you give Mom, it truly is the thought that counts. Besides, if she is like me, a clean house and a nap would be the best presents in the world!
