Eco, Fair Trade & Vegan Mother's Day Gift Ideas
Mother’s Day is quickly approaching, and there’s still time to find the perfect gift and have it delivered to your doorstep. For those that want to reduce unnecessary consumption and have all their purchases meet their ethical standards, here are some of my ideas for ethical and animal-friendly gift ideas.
A really beautiful cotton canvas rug with handmade tassels and a woven cotton strap for ease of transport. A beautiful outdoors rug makes a great gift for someone that you want to add a little luxe into the life of, because to me this is just one of those items that makes you feel really put together but that you may not want to splurge on for yourself.
Made from Banksia seed pods, these aroma diffusers are an eco and affordable way of adding a little luxury to any room in the house. The pod absorbs the oil and diffuses the scent for weeks at a time.
Everybody needs under garments and basics, and everybody deserves those items to be luxe. Instead of guessing at someone’s size, you can just give them a gift card to the most comfortable underwear I’ve ever known. Enter code JACLYN15 for 15% off.
“An alkalising super-greens formula”, this is something on my wishlist that I’ll be purchasing soon along with the Hydration Inner Beauty Boost from The Beauty Chef. It’s full of prebiotics, probiotics and enzymes to aid with gut health and nutritional intake. And everything is made from plants!
These vegan, organic and Fair Trade certified socks contribute to planting trees, researching solutions to breast cancer and providing water and sanitation to homes that need it. Everybody needs to wear socks, particularly when moving towards winter in Australia and these would be great for bed or in boots.
A vegan leather alternative, this cute cork pouch is lined with hemp and organic cotton. Whether it’s used as a purse, clutch, makeup or electronics bag or any other purpose, everyone has space in their life for an eco-friendly pouch.
You can get ECO’s best certified vegan and cruelty-free scents at a discount. These are my essential oils of choice to diffuse, because they’re pure without any added nasties. If your mum doesn’t have a diffuser, you can get one of those too.
Wood and acrylic earrings made in a small Australian business run on renewables, sold from my friend’s zero waste menstrual products social enterprise brand.
Mix & match a perfume and chocolate from two brands I love. The Australian Natural Soap Company is a great vegan Melbourne-based brand, and Loving Earth are a vegan, Fair Trade and organic chocolate brand with minimal ingredients.
This traditional Chinese beauty tool is something I’ve been using in my routine for a few months now, and it works to reduce inflammation, redness and fine lines. This is a low waste tool that can replace consumable beauty products in your daily beauty routine.
Fashion meets function meets sustainability. For the mum that loves handbags, this beautiful market shopping bag can be multi-purpose. It’s 100% biodegradable and made fairly in northern Vietnam.
A dry brush is a useful tool for promoting lymphatic health and exfoliating the skin. It encouraged circulation and skin regeneration to reduce acne, stretchmarks and ageing skin. I use my dry brush daily to get my blood moving, and think this eco-friendly and biodegradable brush would make a great gift for someone wanting to look after themselves and feel their best every day.
This is the most beautiful reusable cup I’ve ever seen. For the mum in your life that hasn’t invested in a travel mug yet, this stoneware would be my pick. It’s aesthetic and something she’d like to be seen using.
So these are just 13 of my choices for more ethical gift choices for the mum in your life. Let me know if you liked any of them and will be buying one for the mum in your life!
