With Earth Day just a few days behind us, and Mother’s Day just a week or so away, it’s the perfect time to put together a gift guide focused on sustainable living and purchasing decisions. With most of us at home, conscious consumption has been brought to the forefront as we become aware of what we need, and how much we are truly consuming. Here we’ve rounded up a few of our favorite sustainable items, along with a few thoughtful free items that we know Mom or a lady in your life will appreciate.
We love sustainable jewelry, particularly from Starling. With pieces that fit almost every budget, jewelry expert and gemologist, Chelsey Bartrum, ensures all jewelry is handmade in Los Angeles with mindfully sourced materials, repurposed gemstones, and transparent pricing. She has taught us so much about how to shop for jewelry mindfully. Plus, their annual archive sale is now live, so you can pick up a special piece for less.
Many of us are missing bright fresh flowers, but plants are another great, more sustainable option that can be delivered right to your doorstep. We love The Sill’s plant subscription (particularly the pet-safe one) for the lady in your life with a furry friend.
With sweats and cozy clothes on repeat for us all, upgrading your look with a sustainable, everlasting cashmere sweater is always a good idea. These gorgeous sweaters are machine washable so Mom can care for them in the comfort of her own home without having to head to the dry cleaner.
One of our favorite tried and true CBD brands, Plant People has an exclusive gift set for Mom, with drops for sleep, relief from discomfort, and overall balance. Always sustainably sourced. All orders at 15% for Earth Month right now, too.
Stock up on matching + sustainable masks for the mom + her mini-me with Christy Dawn The Sustainable Kids Mask + Christy Dawn The Sustainable Mask. The masks use 100% doubled deadstock cotton, are reusable and washable. Each order is for 10 total masks (five for you and five will be donated to those in need)!
Stock up on reusable bags your fashionable mother can feel good about. In endless patterns, these durable bags hold 2–3 plastic grocery bags worth of stuff for extra-large grocery runs and fold into a flat 5" × 5" pouch. Now made from 40% recycled nylon sourced from pre-consumer waste!
We also wanted to include a few of our favorite thoughtful and *free* gift ideas to fit any budget:
- Create a digital cookbook of all your favorite recipes
- Create an epic playlist on Spotify
- Create a must-listen podcast list
- Plan a virtual Mother’s Day date + watch her favorite movie with her on Netflix
- Send her a copy of your favorite book (that you already own)
- Sign up for our next Clean Meet Up together
We hope that you are able to celebrate the moms in your life in a special, although perhaps very different way this year. We know she will appreciate it!
