10 Eco-friendly and Ethical Mother's Day Gift Ideas

eco-friendly and ethical gifts for mothers day

Pamper Her
From handmade bath salts to artisanal sugars, give your mom the best of everything to make her feel her best!
  1. These handmade bath salts from Barr-Co are delicately scented, moisturizing, and have only five ingredients: salts, milk, oatmeal, vanilla and vetiver. They make your skin smell like heaven. 
  2. Antique silver, pewter, and Swarovski crystal earrings, made in the USA by Ben Amun.
  3. Strawberry Basil Black Pepper and cane sugar, and Raspberry Hibiscus Bolivian Rose Salt, all made by hand in NYC. These are a great gift for a gourmand mother, or a mom who loves to entertain.
  4. Origins Drink Up Intensive Mask is perfect for soothing dry skin from too much sun, or just as a hydrating pick-me-up. 
  5. Four rollerball scents in sliding tin case by sage + fasten. All products are made without sulphates, parabens, or synthetic dyes and are cruelty free.

Brighten Her Day
Floral silk pajamas and hand-painted slip-ons will bring cheer to any fun-loving mama.

  1. Handcrafted in Brooklyn, these all vegan, organic, fairly traded and kosher chocolate bars serve a greater purpose. For every purchase of this 8-piece set, 100-percent of profits go to animal rescue organizations.
  2. 100% silk pajama pants (and a top!), made in the USA by Maison du Soir. 
  3. Fair trade cosmetic bag/clutch from Connected Fair Trade.
  4. Four assorted Voluspa candles, made in the USA from coconut wax (cleaner burning than other waxes, even soy). My love for Voluspa will never, ever die.
  5. TOMS shoes, hand-painted by artists in Haiti under fair labor conditions.
