Have you decided what to gift your mother, this mother’s day? Is it going to be the same old flowers, lunch or movie routine? Here are some fresh green ideas that are not only eco-friendly but also show that you care. Some of these could be buying stuff off the shelf or even websites but some of these can go a long way to show what your mother means to you.

You can buy a lot of green gifts like glass pendants, recycled newspaper flowers, rainbow bamboo bowls, shower timer (to conserve water), scented soy candles, old chair back hangers, vintage purse hooks and many such practical products.

If you have a mother who loves being pampered you could gift her organic flower bouquets, organic spa kits or even a day at an organic spa center! If gardening is her thing you could get her a high quality “composter” to help make organic manure for her garden an herb growing kit so that she can grow her own herbs or even a whole new garden if she has wanted one.

Short of money and still want to make her feel special? Don’t fret; there are plenty of ways to do that. You could may be wash her car, make breakfast in bed for her, plant a tree (fruit or flowering) in her garden, may be prepare a whole flower bed, take her for a hike (if she likes out doors) or just spend some time with her talking about the old days!
