Green Gifts for Mother's Day!
It's Mother's Day and the hottest in-thing this year is going green! It's also fitting since we just celebrated Earth Month in April. Make this a memorable Mother's Day by giving mom a very thoughtful environmentally friendly gift. Here are some great eco-ideas:
For the Green Thumb Mom - Paint an unfinished terra-cotta pot (you can find them at Michaels or your local dollar store). Fill it with packages of seeds of her favourite flowers or herbs or a bouquet of flowers and tie a beautiful ribbon around it.
For the Gourmet Mom - Hit her favourite health food store or the organic section of your supermarket and pick up a healthy organic treat. Yes, you can even find chocolate! Or put together a beautiful basket of organic fruit.
For the Fashionable Mom - Buy her an eco-friendly tote bag. These come in a wide assortment of fashionable designs and colours. Compact and practical, she can fold it up and keep it in her purse for those last minute errands… And just think of how many plastic bags you'll be diverting from landfills.
For the Practical Mom - Buy her some eco-friendly or energy-saving household products.
For the Horticultural Mom - Pick out a beautiful houseplant or a gorgeous bouquet of flowers. Wrap with a stunning bow.
For the Artistic Mom - Paint her a work of art. She'll appreciate it coming from you and she will cherish her painting forever! Get some help from Dad to get the painting framed.
For the Sentimental Mom - Ask Dad to buy you an unfinished wood frame to paint and decorate. Insert a digital print of the family for mom to place on her desk at work.
For the Compassionate Mom - Make a donation in your Mom's name to one of her favourite charities or adopt (sponsor) her favourite animal at the Toronto Zoo.
For the Bookworm Mom - Make her a personalized bookmark from recycled materials. She'll think of you every time she curls up with her favourite book.
Whatever you give your mom, we're sure your gift will the "green" envy of all other moms!
