Plants – Let Your Love Growing
You can’t go wrong with a bouquet of flowers that are grown sustainably in farms. But, it is too mainstream and won’t last for long. So, give her something that is eco-friendly, lasts for a while, and keeps on growing.
Some living herb plants or vegetable seedlings can be an excellent green gift. Mix up a variety of colors and textures so that your mom’s garden looks beautiful. If she does not have a garden, gift her some window boxes or containers too, which you can either make by yourself or buy ready-made. These plants will daily remind your mom of your love for her.

Show Your Love with Fresh Greens
Does your mom love eating fresh fruits and vegetables on a regular basis? Is she a vegetarian? Does she love juice fasting? If yes, you can give her a great Mothers Day gift by signing her up for a local consumer-supported agriculture (CSA) program. She will get farm-fresh fruits and veggies every week. You can also sign up yourself and split your take with her. In this way, she will get fresh greens and a visit from you every week delivering the produce to her.
An Organic Meal for Mom
Taking mom out for a meal is probably the most common Mother’s Day gift after flowers and cards. It is undoubtedly a great way to spend quality time with your mother and other family members. You can easily give that meal a green makeover by either taking her to a restaurant that uses local and organic produce or cook by yourself with produce from the local farmers’ market.
