03 May Not – your – usual Mother’s Day Gift Guide
This is a gift guide with a twist, it’s still a gift guide but with free, almost free, green and some spoils, there’s something for every mom (and pocket)!
(And just so you don’t forget, Mother’s Day is on Sunday 12th May).
~ Plan some dinner meals, bonus points if you go and do the grocery shopping for the ingredients of those meals, bonus bonus points if you cook the meal!
~ This is one that keeps on giving, should you (and you should) stick to if you live at home with your mom, do your share of the chores.
~ Make a card and write your mom a poem or some heartfelt words as to why she is so special to you.
~ Give mom breakfast in bed, buy her favourite magazine and leave her to enjoy it in peace.
~ Make or buy mom a planter of her favourite herbs or succulents (check out our post here)
~ Of course our EcoPack straw’s are a must-have for the eco-concious mamma!
~ Literally green, by Reel Gardening “plant the paper and watch it grow” easy-peasy gardening!
~ A Bee Hotel, yes, a hotel for bees – they’re great, not only for your garden plants but bee hotels assist with protecting our food security! They look pretty too!
~ A Dopper Bottle – produced with a net zero carbon footprint, are free of BPA and encourage the use of tap water as an affordable and less environmentally harmful alternative to bottled water. Also the white part of the bottle coverts into a drinking “glass”, fancy.
~ One of our favourite South African sock brands, FEAT.sock co. – the toughest part is choosing a pair…also, you probably won’t be able to not buy a pair for yourself too but hey, winter is basically here already so you probably need them, right?
~ Old faithful Woolworths and Yuppiechef – no doubt you will find something for mom on these sites. Cosy slippers, gowns, pj’s, a new mug, that must-have non-stick pan etc. Worth a look as you might find something super special.
~ LUSH, of course! With names like MAMMA MIA, Shower scrub “Lay all your scrub on me” how can you resist?
If none of these ignite enthusiasm, make mom a cup of tea, have a chat and ask her what SHE would like on the day that honours HER and everything else that moms do!
