ethical gift ideas for mums

Looking for eco-friendly gift ideas for mums?  You’re in luck, I’ve got lots of inspiration here for you.

Mother’s Day is fast approaching (it’s on Sunday 27th March in 2022) and I’ve been on the hunt for some eco-friendly, sustainable, and ethical gift ideas for mums.

 I’ve found some beautiful gift ideas. I’ve also covered all aspects. From booze (Edinburgh Gin is my favourite!) to ethical fashion. From eco-friendly homewares to pretty and sustainable accessories.  Now the hard part is deciding which one to get for my own mum!

Budget Eco-Friendly Gift Ideas for Mums

All the eco-friendly and ethical gift ideas for mums suggested in this post are under £30, and start at just £10. I like to keep things budget-friendly around these parts!

From Clockwise:

Ophelia Beaded Necklace (£19.95) from Mimosa Street. Sparkly and beautiful and fairtrade.

Picture Frame* (from £12.95) from Nkuku. I love these copper frames, they’d look lovely in any interior.  Fill with old photos or old memories for a really thoughtful gift.

Breton Top* (£24.90) from Thought Clothing*. Every lady needs a good breton top in their life.  This one is no exception.

Elderflower Liqueur (£17.99) from Edinburgh Gin. Perfect for making Mother’s Day cocktails. Is that a thing?  I say it should be!

Floral Scarf (£29.95) from Seasalt*. I love the William Morris feel to this pretty scarf.

Pretty Bird Brooch* (£10) from Etsy. If your mum is excited about Harper’s new book!

Linen Pouch* (£10) from Etsy. I love this so much and might have to sneakily buy this as a gift from me to me.  It’s listed as a sewing and crafting pouch, but I’d probably use it to store my makeup or other bits and bobs.

If all else fails then why not head to your local florist and pick up a pretty bunch of spring flowers?  UK-grown bluebells, hyacinths, iris, and tulips are all in season in March and make a lovely choice for a spring bouquet!
