From clockwise:

Aphrodite Facial Oil (£20) from Magic Organic Apothecary – I bought this oil for my winter ravaged postpartum skin and I have to say it’s doing a stellar job of adding moisture to my face without making it oily.  I know it sounds a bit counter-intuitive adding oil to your skin – especially because my skin can be prone to oiliness – but there you go!

Organic Cotton Top* (£34.90) from Braintree Clothing – A pretty top for a pretty lady ;)

Bead Branch Earrings (£8.50) from People Tree – a lovely budget friendly gift.

Lip Collection* (£25 – reduced from £55) from Green People – a bargain for this ethical organic make-up set.

British grown flowers (£25) – delivered to her door from the Great British Florist – because who doesn’t love a pretty bunch of blooms, especially when they’ve been grown on our fair isles?

Brass Picture Frame (£12.95) from Decorator’s Notebook – for housing a special memory.

Jewellery Dish* (£10) from Jessica Ceramics – for keeping precious jewels safe

Mustard Cushion* (£15) from Allen and Bear – because of it’s beautiful colour.

Tea Cosy* (£22) from Tafferty Designs – what a way to make afternoon tea special every day.

Mini Jug* (£16) from Julia Smith Ceramics – because it’s too pretty to resist.

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!

Mother’s Day is fast approaching (Sunday 15th March) and I’ve been on the hunt for some ethical gift ideas for mums.  I’ve covered all aspects – from booze (Edinburgh Gin is my favourite!) to fashion; from homewares and to pretty accessories.  Now the hard part is deciding which one to get for my mum!

All the ethical gift ideas suggested in this post are under £30, and start at just £10 as 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 Decorator’s Notebook – 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 Braintree Clothing* – Every lady needs a good breton top in their life.  This one is no exception.

Elderflower Liquer (£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.

To Kill A Mockingbird Brooch* (£10) from Etsy – if your mum is excited about the new Harper Lee 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!
