Mother’s Day is coming up! Coming up with a thoughtful Mother’s Day gift can be hard, but here are some creative and eco-friendly gift ideas mothers will love:
Many moms can’t stand wet drinks sitting directly on the furniture. So this summer, save the furniture by making a set of coasters that everyone will love to use. You can make beautiful and thoughtful coasters out of fabric remnants, beads, pieces of felt and even old bits of clothesline or other cotton-based rope.
2.The Tiniest Garden
If your mom loves to garden or simply loves being outdoors, a terrarium could be the perfect gift. You can assemble all the materials needed to make the terrarium and put them into a mason jar. Print out some labels, a special poem, and maybe some directions and you are good to go!
3. Glass Votive Photo Candles
After burning candles, empty glass votive holders are often left behind. Rather than throw them away, turn them into beautiful votive photo candles. Use photos of the kids, the whole family, or special moments from any point in your mom’s life to make these amazing glass containers. Once they’re done you can use them for tea lights, flowers, or even pens and pencils.
4. Up-cycled Jewelry
You can make jewelry out of just about anything. Look around your donation pile and see what you can come up with. Need some options? Try bicycle parts, copper pipe, old keys, books, pop can tabs, or even old shirts.
5. Indoor Herb Garden
Give your mom a fresh and colorful indoor herb garden. It will add some beautiful greenery to her kitchen and a lovely fresh scent to the room.
6. A Clean House
Many stay-at-home moms have to clean their homes every hour of the day. Help your mom out by cleaning the house for her. Make sure to use environmentally friendly cleaners!
No matter what you choose to give your mom on her special day, make sure she knows she is loved.
Happy Mothers’ Day!
