Sustainable Gifts for Mom
For many of us, Moms are the best. They are the light of our lives and celebrating them feels so good. This year, our top gift ideas are sustainable, unique and often made by moms, too! Check out our rounded of thoughtful and sustainable presents that are sure to make your mom feel like the special woman that she is!
Maylyn & Co. makes gorgeous sleepwear sets and establishes a high standard when it comes to sustainability. The slow fashion brand produces zero microplastic pollution and uses recycled fabrics to minimize water and energy consumption. Instead of animal-derived silk, Maylyn & Co. uses Lotus silk from Persia amongst other sustainable fabrics like Modal, made from the renewable fibers of beech trees, and recycled polyethylene terephthalate (rPET), an alternative to polyester fabric. Amongst our favorites are the Gloria Vegan Silk Slip Dress and the Rosewood Shadow Loungewear Set.
Whether your mom likes to dress up or dress for comfort, The OULA Company, founded by a mom, has the perfect piece for her. These sustainable dresses are hand-sewn in the U.S. and made from Ankara Wax and deadstock textiles in limited quantities to reduce waste. That means each dress is one-of-a-kind! OULA pieces are made with durability and cross-seasonal designs in mind for gorgeous dresses to last you a lifetime! OULA is available in Nordstrom and Shopbop or buy directly from their site. We’re loving the Midi Dress in Purple Black Orange and the Tie Front Split Neck Dress in Leopard Pastiche.
If you’re local to the Seattle area, check out Terra Bella Flowers! Although the floral industry is notorious for being toxic and overly wasteful, Terra Bella is committed to changing that. By sourcing their flowers from farmers markets and local growers and expanding that business practice nationally, other florists are able to engage in sustainable and eco-friendly protocols as well. A few gorgeous options for mom include Dutch Masters and Amethyst.
Wine from Orcas Island
For the wine lover in your life, check out Girl Meets Dirt for unique fair trade wines. All wines are made from hand-harvested orchard fruit, which is sourced from local growers and farmers. Girl Meets Dirt only uses unrefined organic sugar to avoid synthetic pesticides and to keep the nutrients from molasses naturally found in sugar intact. Check out gift sets like the Deluxe Shrub Sampler or single bottles like Apple Sparkling Wine.
An intimate relationship between skin and self - meet Odacité. Everything from their ingredients, packaging and printing is eco-friendly and sourced with the earth in mind. 83% of their skincare formulas are organic and plants are harvested and shipped directly from the farm to the lab. Miron glass jars, made from opaque glass used since ancient Egyptian times, filter light spectrums to energize the contents within and naturally preserve the goodness inside. Try their luxurious and velvety night cream, Crème de la Nuit, or experience cold therapy with the Cryo-Tech Facial Tool. We’re also obsessed with An Autum on the World Vitamin C Serum.
Help mom create an eco-friendly bedroom with The Modern Dane. The Scandinavian duvets, pillowcases and sheets are made from 100% European flax linen from Belgium, France and The Netherlands and is GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified. This means that stringent testing protocol ensures that the entire supply chain from harvesting to manufacturing is organic and engages in socially responsible labor and processing practices. The Modern Dane is also hypoallergenic! Gift mom a duvet like the Organic European Linen Duvet Cover Set in Prose.
