Once a year we get to gush over the special woman who has guided us from birth into adulthood. On May 9, show your mother just how much you love her AND the planet with these Top 5 orGLAMic Mother’s Day Gifts. Whether she’s an aspiring chef, design lover or yogi extraordinaire, one of these eco-friendly gifts is sure to show how much your appreciate mommy dearest.
This Mother’s Day Jurlique has teamed up with fashion designer Rebecca Taylor to present a limited edition set of products the designer (and mother of three herself) thinks every mom must have. The Intense Recovery Mask and Rose Hand Cream are great for those of you who want to pamper your mom the orGLAMic way. And as with all Jurlique products, they include ingredients that are grown on the company’s 153-acre Australian farm such as rose, lavender, marshmallow, licorice and calendula.
What woman doesn’t love a good piece of jewelry? This year, give your mother her jewelry kick the orGLAMic way with a bauble from designer Kris Nations. Working with metal refiners who get their metal from the earth’s existing metal supply instead of mining new precious metals, the company is committed to recycling and protecting the environment. The Rough Cut Pyrite “Fools Gold” Ring is an upscale, casual favorite of mine that would easily spruce up a simple T-shirt and jean ensemble.
If mom has a green thumb and a discriminating eye for innovative design, introduce her to the unique Boskke Sky Planter. The brainchild of two New Zealand designers, these planters can be hung from a ceiling or wall mount leaving surfaces mess free and guests something to admire. A revolutionary watering system feeds water directly into the roots of the plant, conserving both water and time for mom.
Help your yogi mama stay youthful with an orGLAMic yoga mat by Manduka. Made of 100% biodegradable natural rubber, these durable mats are made to last a lifetime, even further decreasing their impact on the planet. With different mats available for different styles and levels of yoga practice, these emission- and PVC-free mats come in a variety of colors ranging from moss to limited-edition black cherry (and of course, my favorite, black.)
If mom gets her kicks in the kitchen, The Big Green Cookbook is the perfect gift to help her go green in her efforts.
