Our Organic Gift Guide for Pampering Mom on Mother’s Day
The moms and mother-figures in our lives amaze us with all they do for their families every single day! From grocery shopping and meal prep to cleaning and household chores, mom is often responsible for what foods and products are part of daily life. This Mother’s Day, show mom how much you appreciate her by spoiling her with healthy and organic sustainable gifts! Don’t worry, it’s not as daunting as it sounds. Here’s our go-to Mother’s Day organic gifting guide:
Make mom an all-organic breakfast. Or, let her sleep in a little and make it brunch! Take a trip to the grocery store to put together the ultimate brunch featuring an organic-only grocery list. Start by thinking about what kind of breakfast foods mom loves. Need some inspo? Uncle Matt’s Breakfast Salad and Ultimate Immune Blueberry Pancakes are two of our faves! Get more inspired by browsing our recipe page for ideas!
Treat mom to her favorite mommosas! Did you know we’ve created several different mimosa recipes, each featuring a different Uncle Matt’s Organic juice? These can be enjoyed any time, but why not give mom a choice of her favorite juice on her big day? You could even set up a mini mimosa bar with all the options! Here’s our mommosa menu.
Adorn the table with organically grown flowers. A beautiful centerpiece is the perfect addition to your Mother’s Day table. Skip the pesticides and harsh chemicals and opt for buying flowers locally. Don’t be afraid to ask how the flowers are grown so you can keep toxic chemicals out of the house. Looking for flowers that might last a little longer? Organically grown potted plants and flowers are also a great planet-friendly option.
Plant mom an organic garden. Got a green thumb? Give mom beautiful organic flowers, veggies and herbs year ‘round utilizing all things eco-friendly and sustainable. If you’re planting only flowers, stick to the organic variety to avoid harsh pesticides. Flowers with bright colors will also help attract pollinators! Does an edible garden sound more palatable? Plant her favorite fruits and vegetables in organic soil or compost to grow nutrient-dense produce the whole family will love!
Get crafty. There’s no better way to gift sustainably than reusing what you already have on hand! Ditch store bought cards and get creative with things you have around the house. If there are kids who want to help, encourage them to use scrap paper, beads, extra craft supplies and paint to make mom a meaningful handmade card she will treasure.
Make a basket of sustainable staples. Whether mom is a chocoholic, wine connoisseur, beauty mavin or coffee lover, there’s an organic basket for that! Look for the USDA organic seal on food labels when shopping for tasty treats and drinks. When it comes to beauty supplies, look for natural products that use only clean ingredients. Don’t forget to reuse a gift bag or basket you already have at home!
