Umm, who else feels like Mother’s Day came quickly this year?! Don’t worry, we’re here for it. Finding a thoughtful, last-minute gift for Mother’s Day can be stressful. So we’ve got you covered with this list of mother earth-friendly ideas to help you celebrate your mom (or any deserving mother figure in your life) this Mother’s Day.
1. The Gift of Music
Why Mom will love it: Unlimited access to ALL her fave songs!
Our Pick: Spotify
Give the gift of music and nostalgia through a music streaming subscription. Spotify is a great app that offers an extensive catalog they can access on the phone, in the car, and through a Smart TV! Your mom will appreciate being able to listen to all her favorite songs and discover new ones to groove to. Better yet, make her a playlist made just for her.
2. Gift Card & Flowers
Why Mom will love it: Beautiful bouquet and she can get what she wants!
Our Pick: Etsy or your mom’s favorite store
Gift Cards are a great last-minute gift idea! You are giving them the ability to choose what they really want. A gift card to Etsy has access to local and global artisan craft makers and vintage sellers to add to her collection of favorite things. However, gift cards can seem a bit impersonal so, we suggest pairing the gift card with flowers from a local florist. Usually, florists will accept orders online and over the phone, they often deliver and have pre-arranged bouquets to choose from. A gift card and flowers are a great gift option if your mom does not live close by.
Why Mom will love it: You had me at mimosas!
Our Pick: Your fave local brunch spot
Luckily, Mother’s Day falls on the second Sunday of May which also happens to be the beginning of Patio season! Patios allow for safe outdoor seating at your fave brunch spot. Or, order brunch to-go and enjoy it in the comfort of your home patio. Want another option? order brunch through a local delivery service to your mom’s house and give her a video call! Your mom will love the time spent sharing a yummy meal.
4. Pela Case
Why Mom will love it: Protective, stylish and compostable case for her phone
Our Pick: Floral Case
The Pela Phone Case is the perfect gift for your mom. Not only will our cases protect her phone and reflect her style it is also compostable! When it is time to get a new case she can compost it and add it to her garden. As well as proceeds from the case are donated to a 1% for the Planet charity. Truly a gift that keeps on giving. We suggest getting the new floral case or stitch case for those moms who love to craft.
5. Sustainable Jewelry
Why Mom will love it: Who doesn’t love a little sparkle?!
Our Pick: Mejuri
Okay, you might think that buying jewelry for mom is a little too expected, but hear us out! Mejuri is a woman-owned jewelry company that doesn’t make you choose between high-quality or accessible prices. They offer trendy and ethical 14k gold or gold vermeil jewellery, as seen on Oprah and flaunted by Lizzo!! Mejuri also boasts 2-day shipping SO, there is still time to order! The gift of jewelry is special because it is often something people don’t buy for themselves, but love to receive! Mom will be showing off her new earrings on her next video call with her friends. YOU DID THAT.
6. Plastic-Free Self-Care
Why Mom will love it: Treat yourself without spoiling the planet
Our Pick: Daily Essentials Kit from Habitat
Pamper your mom with self-care products that are good for her and the environment. Oftentimes, it can be overwhelming to know where or how to start this journey.

7. A Nature Walk and Coffee
Why Mom will love it: A time to reflect and talk
Our Pick: Local boardwalk, trail, or neighborhood.
Grab your mom’s favorite coffee or tea and go for walk. This is a great time to show up for your mom and just give her your undivided attention. Going for a walk together creates a space to slow down and be more present in your conversation and relationship. Go for a walk together in person or over the phone and enjoy each others company.
