Times are changing. Upping our consumption levels on pointless gifts just because ‘it’s Mother’s Day’ is a thing of the past. Most of us consider both the health of your mum AND Mamma Earth, and celebrate a more conscious Mother’s Day.
go for zero pointless gifts
Finding the best gifts that don’t harm your bank account or the planet can sometimes be tricky and involve a fair amount of research. Luckily, we’ve done the hard yards for you. Here are some gestures to show mum that you love her, paired with our top reduced-waste and toxin free gift ideas (all under $50).
Give mum the gift of your time (she will appreciate it more than you think):
- Run her a warm bath with essential oils, candles and mellow music
- Make your own card. Basic is more than enough, effort goes a long way!
- Make her breakfast in bed
- Do the things she dislikes doing (washing, cleaning or maybe baking)
- Have a screen free day, push technology aside and go walking, go for lunch or play cards. It’s crazy how much phones can interrupt quality time.
