March’s arrival marks not only the beginning of spring, but also the start of a month representative for women all over the world. Mother’s Day and International Women’s Day are the ‘holidays’ associated with this month. And what is a holiday without presents? Finding the perfect gift for your mom can be a difficult process, but we are here to help you.
March: Women’s month
Mother’s Day and International Women’s Day are the days which gave March the symbolism it carries today. Let’s look more closely at the meaning of these two dates.
Mother’s Day celebrates motherhood and the role mothers play in their families and in societies in general. It dates back to the beginning of the 20th century, being celebrated for the first time in 1908. Although it is associated with the date of March 8, there are other variations around the world.
International Women’s Day (March 8) celebrates women’s fight for their rights. It’s associated with the notion of anti-discrimination, anti-sexism and civil awareness. The United Nations adopted the day in 1975.
Why eco-friendly is the best gift
When it comes to finding the perfect gift for your loved ones, especially your mother, things can get a bit complicated. No matter how much you believe you know her, you may find yourself most of the times wondering “What should I get her this time?” Don’t worry, you’re not the only one.
We have prepared a few gift suggestions to help you pick the perfect one for your mother. Here are 9 recommendations you can choose from this year.
1. Eco-friendly exfoliating gloves
Women adore to relax and treat themselves. Having a beautiful smooth skin is something that can make any woman happy.
A day at a spa may be expensive, so bringing the spa into your bathroom is a great alternative. Start with some eco-friendly exfoliating gloves. Getting rid of dead skin cells does not only make skin look amazing, but it can also be a great treatment for different conditions such as acne, eczema and cellulite. It stimulates blood circulation and the rejuvenation of cells.
Made from eco-friendly materials, it’s also a great way of protecting the environment and your mom’s health. You don’t need to buy other exfoliating products that may contain chemicals.
2. Eco-friendly eyeshadow
Makeup is a woman’s best friend, they say. We want to change a bit this statement into “eco-friendly makeup.”
Offering a makeup set to your mom is an excellent gift. It can enhance her features and be her favorite product when preparing for going out. Its plant ingredients make it a safe ingredient for your mother’s skin.
3. Natural bath bombs
What’s more relaxing than taking a warm and nice bath? We may go for taking one with a bath bomb.
Really popular nowadays, bath bombs are those round objects you introduce in your bath and they dissolve, leaving behind beautiful colors and a nice smell. They are the new secret ingredient for an amazing bath.
It’s important to pay attention to the ingredients of these bath bombs. Going for the ones which are paraben-free and rich in essential oils is a great option. It will offer your mother a great experience and a treat for her skin.
4. Organic face cream
Keeping the skin hydrated can be an important aspect for your mom. An eco-beauty cream can be a good gift in this case.
What’s essential here is to be careful at the cream type your mom needs: for dry or oily skin. The second aspect refers to the cream ingredients. Look for natural ingredients, no parabens or artificial scents. They can be really efficient in hydrating the skin, keeping it healthy and beautiful.
5. Smoothie recipes book
Smoothies are an excellent idea for a fresh snack, a special drink or even a great addition to a daily meal (breakfast or dinner). Yet, it’s important to combine the right ingredients in order to obtain a delicious and healthy drink.
Buying a book filled with simple smoothie recipes for your mom is a great choice. What’s more, all your family will enjoy it. You can all make tasty smoothies and have a healthy drink.
6. Eco-friendly digital food scale
In order to prepare the best food, your mom needs the best tools. Certain recipes, especially the ones for cakes and pies, require exact quantities of ingredients. A scale is a must in your mom’s kitchen in this case.
An eco-friendly food scale can be a great help for your mom. As it’s made of bamboo, an eco-friendly material, it also protects the environment.
7. Eco-friendly beauty organizer
If your mom has many beauty products, this eco-friendly organizer can be the gift she was looking for. She can keep her hair products, hair dryer or makeup utensils such as brushes in it.
8. Eco-friendly pillow
This may seem an unusual gift, but if your mom loves to have many pillows on her bed and/or couch, you’re on the right track. My mom loves pillows and gets excited when she buys a new one.
Going for an eco-friendly pillow may not only delight her, but it’s also an environmental option.
9. Eco-friendly bamboo bowls
The plates you use for your food can be as important as the aspect of your meals. Eco-friendly bamboo bowls have a fancy aspect and are great when having a dinner with diverse courses or for serving snacks at a party.
