What Makes A Mothers Day Gift Sustainable?

If the Mom in your life is eco-conscious, you will want to pick a gift that she can feel good about using. She may care about bringing safe materials inside her home, about using products with a smaller impact on the earth, or even about the welfare of the animals, farmers, and workers who make the products she uses. When it comes to selecting sustainable Mothers Day gifts, there are a few important factors to consider:

  1. Environmentally-friendly materials: Look for gifts made from eco-friendly materials that have a low impact on the environment, such as recycled materials, natural fibers, or fibers from plants that are grown in a sustainable manner and put less toll on our planet. Avoid gifts made of plastic or materials that are not biodegradable. Focus on purchasing gifts with certifications such as GOLS, GOTS, and our all-time favorite, MADE SAFE

  2. Ethical production: Choose gifts that have been produced in an ethical, humane, and sustainable way, such as those made by companies with fair labor practices or those that prioritize reducing their carbon footprint. We love looking for certifications such as Fair Trade, Forest Stewardship Council, Certified B Corporations.

  3. Longevity: Opt for gifts that are made to last and not replaced after a few years. This could include items that are durable or have a design that won’t go out of style soon.

  4. Functionality: When choosing a sustainable gift, consider gifts that serve a purpose and can be used regularly and on the long term, rather than items that may end up collecting dust on a shelf after being used a handful of times.

  5. Local and small-scale: Supporting local and small-scale businesses is also a sustainable option as it reduces the environmental impact of shipping and supports local economies. Farmers markets and local craftsmen and women can be found online and through word-of-mouth.

Ultimately, a sustainable Mother’s Day gift is one that is thoughtful, useful, and minimizes its impact on the environment. Our sustainable Mothers Day gifts below, contains only gift ideas that are made organic, MADE SAFE, manufactured by companies who offset their carbon footprint, and/or made of sustainable materials. All are healthy products that will make the mom in your life feel understood and loved.

Price | $100

I know it is spring and soon summer, but there may be a few more chilly nights ahead, and those Sheets & Giggles Eucalyptus Flannel Sheets are so durable, Mom will be using them for years to come! Of course, those would make an excellent sustainable Christmas gift as well, and if you think that Mom would prefer a lighter option, the regular Eucalyptus Sheets are a beautiful gift as well.

On cool nights, Mom will slip into warm sheets, which will never feel hot or toasty! No sweating, and flannel sheets that do not pill – what more could you ask for?

Because they are made of 40% organic cotton and 60% eucalyptus, the Sheets & Giggles Flannel Sheets are sustainable and soft on the planet, ultra soft on the skin, and hypoallergenic.

Those sheets are designed in Denver, CO and can be washed on cold and dried on low heat.

Organic Cotton Blanket

Brand | Sleep Artisan

Price | $169

For the Mom who likes to lounge with a warm drink, a book, and a cozy blanket.

You will find this one on our couch and there is a good reason for it. This Sleep Artisan Matelassé Organic Cotton Blanket is the softest and comfiest lounge blanket we have ever owned.

Its three layers of certified organic cotton give it some extra plushness and cozy weight, without ever trapping the heat and making you feel hot. So if Mom enjoys lazy mornings and Sunday afternoons, this organic cotton blanket will be the perfect sustainable Mother Day gift this year.

A few points if Mom asks: this is a 100% organic cotton blanket, that can be machine washed on cold and dried on medium heat. Organic cotton uses 91% less water in its growing and processing than regular cotton, and results in a 98% reduction of water pollution since synthetic materials are not used. 

Alpaca Throw

Brand | Silk & Snow

Price | $170

Here is another blanket – different style, different feel, but incredible soft as well. This one is for the Moms that enjoy a winter day by the fire and want to bring chalet vibes to their Holiday season.

We love this Alpaca Throw Blankets for its look, feel, and its story. Silk & Snow is a Canadian company who truly cares about the provenance of the materials they use in their mattresses and bedding. This Alpaca Throw uses 100% natural Alpaca fiber that is handwoven following centuries of heritage and expertise by generational Alpaca breeders in the Peruvian Andes.

This is a lightweight blanket that feel soft and warm, without leaving you sweating since the natural fibers wick away your body moisture and encourage your body to regulate its own temperature.

A few points if Mom asks: this Silk & Snow Alpaca Throw is made from 100% Peruvian Baby Alpaca Fiber (baby refers to the grade of softness, not the age of the alpaca) that is so soft, it won’t itch. The throws are safely and ethically produced in Peru, earning the Fair Trade Peru Good Practices by SGS Peru for its environmental sustainability, community support, and commercial/working practices. Dry clean only!

Natural Weighted Blanket

Brand | Baloo

Price | $179

This is the first weighted blanket of 3 on our sustainable Mothers Day gifts list.

This Baloo Weighted Blanket is 100% chemical free and made with natural materials, which means that Mom can throw it in the wash when it needs a clean. Note that if you are looking for a weighted comforter (which overhands like a regular blanket), you should look into the slightly more expensive Baloo Weighted Comforter.

Available in 4 different weights, with a king-size blanket that will work well for couples, this weighted blankets gets its weight from glass microbeads that are natural and chemical-free. The outer cover is made of 100% cotton and free from polyester and synthetic liners, so it does not trap the heat and Mom can sleep cozy and comfy without breaking a sweat.

If Mom likes the look and feel of linen, the 12-lb weighted blanket (throw size) has loops to secure the Baloo linen cover to it!

Choose from several cover colors, and make it extra special by adding a monogram to the cover.

A few points if Mom asks: the entire Baloo Weighted Blanket can be machine-washed on cold and is dryer safe (check weight limits of your machines). The natural cotton cover is breathable and stitched in a small pattern to ensure no sweat and even weight distribution that does not shift overnight. This is a chemical-free, plastic-free, vegan, and carbon-neutral product!

Natural Cotton Weighted Blanket

Brand | Silk & Snow

Price | $230

Our second weighted blanket is made of 100% natural cotton, gaining its weight from hand-knitted cotton.

This is also the second Silk & Snow product on our list of sustainable Mothers Day gifts for a reason. We trust this smaller company, as they deeply care from where their raw materials come from and the communities they support, and they handcraft their products in Canada.

We personally prefer hand-knitted weighted blanket to the glass-pellet ones, but do understand that they are a slightly bigger investment. This Silk & Snow Hang Knitted Weighted Blanket may be the softest on the market, and one that will lull Mom to sleep thanks to its gentle and soft pressure.

Because there are no glass pellets and the weight comes from organic cotton, the weight is perfectly even throughout the night. Natural cotton is a very breathable and moisture-wicking material, and because it is hand knitted using a large knitting pattern, it lets plenty of air pass through. 

Mom can use it on its own on warm nights, and on top of her regular comforter on cooler nights.

Choose from a variety of earth-tone calming colors and weights to match Mom’s preference.

A few points if Mom asks: made of 100% natural cotton, this is a breathable and sustainable choice that sleeps ultra soft. It is machine-washable on cold water and tumble dry on low or flat dry.

Tencel Weighted Blanket

Brand | Bearaby

Price | $269

Our third and last weighted blanket is made of 48% Tencel / 47% organic cotton / 5% Spandex, available in different weights to match Mom’s preference, and earth-tone colors to fit her relaxation needs.

Tencel lyocell is made from eucalyptus fibers which are natural, 100% degradable, and uses no irrigation or chemical fertilizers, making it one of the most sustainable materials on Earth.

Eucalyptus is incredibly soft and moisture-wicking, which means that Mom will not sweat or overheat. Instead, she will benefit from the weight of the Bearaby Tree Weighted Blanket and feel the cozy hug that will lull her to sleep, without any of the heat trapping.

Just like the Silk & Snow blanket, this one is hand knitted and can be used on hot and cool nights. The weight comes 100% from the eucalyptus Tencel lyocell, which means that it remains evenly distributed throughout the night.

A few points if Mom asks: the Bearaby Tree Napper is Fairtrade Interational certified on its Tencel, organic cotton, and Spandex. There are no artificial fillers and the Tencel weighted blanket is hand knitted. It is organic and vegan and can be machine-washed on cold and tumble dried on low.

Clax Foldable Trolley

Brand | Clax

Price | $269

This one is for the Mom hauling kids from school, produce from the farmers’ market, gear to the ball games, snacks to the pool, books from the library, and everything in between!

An incredible invention designed and produced in Germany, the Clax Trolley folds to fit in the smallest of spaces (i.e., closet, car trunk, garage) and unfolds with the click of a button into a two-tier trolley that can haul up to 120 pounds of anything you heart desires.

There are too many applications to list all of them, but the Clax Trolley is an incredible tool and can enhance Mom’s life in more ways than you can imagine. This is even for the Mom who doesn’t like touching dirty grocery store carts!

A few points if Mom asks: Clax is a 4th-generation family-owned business, who focuses on quality and sustainability. Made near Stuttgart, Germany, Clax sources its materials from their local area. Additionally, Clax is Climate Neutral certified and offsets its own carbon footprint. They have also joined the Climate Partner Program, supporting a wind turbine field in South Africa that feeds the local grid.

Home Garden

Brand | Gardyn

Price | $695

A higher-budget Mother’s Day gift, but the perfect option for the Mom who has everything, or for the Mom who is passionate about growing her own food and feeding her family healthy and organic produce.

The Gardyn Home is an AI-powered indoor garden that grows fruits, veggies, and flowers inside your home, using only 2 sq. ft. of floor space and allowing to grow up to 30 plants year round.

We have had a Gardyn for over a year in our home and it is a source of wonder, joy, a collective family project, and an incredible source of healthy food for our family.

Choose from 3 plant stater sets and let Mom pick more pods once she is done harvesting. Each pod typically grows food for about 3 to 4 months and allows several harvests.

By connecting the Gardyn Home to the app, Mom keeps an eye on her the health of her plants and uses the power of AI to know when to fill the tank, when to prune or harvest, and keep an eye on the health of her system. Guess what? The Gardyn even waters and provides UVs to the plants, so it is on auto-pilot and the perfect gift for Moms who love to garden but do not have the green thumbs!

Pick your produce seconds before eating them, at their peak of freshness, pesticide-free, no GMOs, and holding 100% of their nutritional value.

A few points if Mom asks: the Gardyn uses only LED lights to save on energy use. It recycles water in a closed loop to save on water and plant food, and measures water level, humidity and interior temperature to give you the best advice on how to care for your plants. The Gardyn’s columns are UV-stabilized, recyclable, and BPA-free; while its yCubes are made of corn-based compostable plastic. Lastly, the seeds are non-GMO, locally grown and pesticide free.
