Finding the right gift for Mother’s Day that shows both appreciation and love while still being unique is never easy which is why we’ve combined our tips and ideas on how to pick the best sustainable gifts that are stylish, thoughtful and kind to the planet.
When is Mother’s Day 2022?
Mother’s Day falls on a wide range of dates across the world but In UK Mother’s Day falls on Sunday 27th March while in US, Canada and Australia it’s on Sunday 8th May a date shared by many European countries as well although not all!
How to choose the best Mother’s Day gift?
This can be the hardest part especially since it can feel like your mom already has everything she needs. Here are some helpful tips of how to narrow it down to the perfect gift:
- Map your roughly gift budget
- Think of interests or new hobbies she might picked up during the pandemic that she can further explore
- Are there any practical gifts that she might need or has mentioned in the past?
- Looking at a sentimental gift such as a photo frame with printed photo you cherish or a photo album is always a nice way of showing your love
- Experiences such as a spa day or afternoon tea are the perfect pampering fail-safe gift that also allows you to spend some time together.
- Surprise her with something new that maybe she hasn’t tried before whether it’s eco-friendly starter kit or a new workshop that you can do together that she wouldn’t expect.
What else should you do for Mother’s Day to celebrate that very special person in your life?
A card and a plant or flowers are always a nice addition but more importantly after many of us have been away from families during the pandemic it’s a great time to spend some quality time together and if you can’t make it home a call is always nice!
