Eco-Friendly and Ethical Gift Ideas for Mother’s Day

gardening for everyone - an ethical mother's day gift idea

I’m a big fan of Julia Watkins. I adore her first book, and this, her second book (£18), is a lovely read. With tips on how to create an eco-friendly and sustainable garden – whether you have a large garden or just a windowsill – it’s sure to inspire. With beautiful photographs and illustrations, as well as being jam-packed with useful information it’s a pretty and practical eco-friendly, and ethical Mother’s Day gift for any green-fingered (or wannabe green-fingered) mum.

Buy: Bookshop.org* / Amazon*

evolve gift set

If skincare is more your mum’s thing, then look no further than this vegan-friendly and plastic-free Evolve Gift Set (£30). Featuring their bestselling Daily Renew Cream – a creamy and rich daily moisturiser – a rehydrating hyaluronic serum, and a cacao-based Radiant Glow Mask, there’s everything you need for a luxurious eco-friendly pampering treat.

All their items are cruelty-free and are made with natural ingredients, often sourced organically.

Buy directly from Evolve for £30*.

aesop hand cream

As I get older, the more love I have for fancy hand cream. If your mum loves a good hand cream too, then may I recommend my current favourite – Aesop’s Resurrection Hand Cream. With a heady citrus and herb aroma, this rich blend of botanicals soothes and hydrates the skin without leaving hands greasy.

All Aesop products are vegan, and they do not test their formulations or ingredients on animals. They are also Leaping Bunny approved and a Certified B Corporation. Meanwhile, the tube is metal so it’s easily recyclable once the hand cream is all used up.

Buy from Cult Beauty for £23*.

For plastic-free and ethical makeup gift ideas for Mother’s Day, try these lovely Lip to Lid Balmies from Axiology.

This trio of easily blendable, vegan crayons can be used on eyes, lips, and cheeks to deliver buildable colour.  They leave a lightweight feel and smooth colour, using 10 ingredients or fewer. 

The crayons appear smaller because they are tube-free (and plastic-free!). However, don’t feel short-changed. Each crayon contains the same amount of product as a standard lipstick.

Buy from Content Beauty for £26*.

For a plastic-free cup of tea or coffee on the go, this beautiful terracotta travel cup takes some beating. Ethically made from earthy terracotta, finished with an off-white glaze, it’s topped with a silicone lid. This means your mum can enjoy a hot drink wherever her day takes you.

Buy direct from Nkuku for £15*.

For mums with a sweet tooth, then try this deliciously dark ethical gift box from Cocoa Loco for Mother’s Day. Featuring Cocoa Loco’s vegan favourites – this includes fruity dark chocolate mango, as well as dark chocolate and raspberry stars, as well as deliciously smooth bars of dark chocolate. into one fantastic organic and Fairtrade chocolate gift box.

Cocoa Loco’s chocolate is always, organic, Fairtrade certified, and palm oil-free. The packaging is all home compostable or recyclable. And what’s more, it is handmade in West Sussex.

Buy from Not On the High Street for £29.99*.

Enjoy your day with your mum. Or if you’re a mum then make sure you put your feet up and enjoy your special day!  My oldest says she wants to make me breakfast in bed, so we’ll see how that goes!

 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!

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!
