Mother’s Day is soon (May 14 this year), and we all want to get mamas something to celebrate them. Whether you’re looking for your own mom, looking for a loved one or friend, or just want to treat yourself (I’m here for it), you’ll love these sustainable Mother’s Day gifts.
Sustainable Mother’s Day Gifts
When it comes to gift giving, I’m a big fan of thoughtfulness. Finding something that will last and that they’ll truly like (and therefore keep for a while) is always best. Even if the perfect thing is free or just a few dollars – focus on getting the right gift rather than hitting a price point.
And regardless of your budget, there are all sorts of good sustainable gift options!
Local Mother’s Day Gift Ideas
Local is always sustainable. Whether you’re supporting local businesses or visiting local attractions, there’s something fun to be had.
- a coffee or tea date at a local cafe. Drinks, goodies, and a good time.
- Visit local museums, parks, and attractions for a fun-get together
- support your local florist and farmers with locally grown flowers (in Sacramento check out Bloom subscription, Redhead Flower Bed, and Garden of Weedon Designs).
- gift cards to local restaurants, coffee shops, salons, and clothing stores
- (a few Sacramento favorites: The Kitchen Table, Constellation Marketplace, The Dancer’s Pantry, NUDGE Eco Store, Tea Cozy, East Village Bookstore)
