This time of year, green is everywhere. Glistening green Christmas trees, beautiful green garland wrapped around lamp posts lining the streets, and thankfully, lots of green gifts. But we’re not talking about wrapping up a Kermit the Frog doll. No, we’re taking note of the perfect present for that eco-friendly mom on your shopping list. Here are some of our favorite items that will not only make the planet-loving recipient happy, but Mother Nature, too.
Gwyneth Paltrow has gone to great lengths to create a mostly organic skincare line that is free of parabens, petroleum, artificial dyes, and other harsh chemicals. The Goop by Juicy Discovery Set ($125) is an excellent way to introduce the mom in your life to something much gentler on the skin.
The Honest Co. Happy Home Gift Set ($40) is the perfect starter kit for the mom trying to avoid harsh chemicals often found in cleaning supplies.
A versatile and chic diaper bag made from recycled PET plastic? Sign us up! Lässig Neckline Diaper Bag ($161)
When using the Babyganics Gift Set ($30), Mom can breathe easy knowing that she’s using natural plant-based ingredients to keep her baby clean and germ free.
Ok, we realize this isn’t the typical gift for a mom but let’s be honest and realize that sometimes she needs to take the edge off, too. Uncommon Goods Himalayan Salt Tequila Glasses ($28-$45) are completely carved out of salt to give your tequila shot that perfect extra kick. The best part is they are naturally antibacterial, so no need to wash them clean.
If Mom is a tree hugger we’re sure she’ll want her child to be one, too. The 100 percent baby alpaca Sprout Tree Hugger Mittens ($68) are a great eco-friendly fashion statement.
With 92 chlorine-free diapers and an array of natural baby products included, The Honest Co. Diaper Cake ($125) is the starter kit made for the nature-loving Mom.
By substituting plant oils for petroleum-based oils the Oeuf Eco-Friendly Changing Pad ($58) creates a safe cleaning space for Mom and baby.
An ERGObaby Organic Cotton Baby Carrier ($130) is not only gentle on baby’s skin, but it’s also ergonomically designed to keep Mom’s back in good shape.
A mother who cares about the planet understands that bees are essential to a thriving ecosystem. The Bambeco Highrise Bee House ($19) is a wonderful opportunity to provide a home for local bees and help children learn about how we must protect them.
Not only will the Back to the Roots Family Farm Gift Set ($100) help Mom make some organic fresh and tasty meals in the kitchen, but it’s also a great opportunity to teach the kids about the importance of sustainable farming.
Sometimes a candle is just the way to go. From the 100 percent unbleached cotton wick to the recycled glass tumbler, The Honest Co. Aromatic Soy Candles ($20) are so environmentally friendly we wouldn’t be surprised if the flame burned the color green. (It doesn’t btw.)
