It's time to send out a great big 'Thank you' and 'I love you' to the wonderful mother figures in our lives.
It's fair to say that mums have been through a lot this year and, for some, this year's Mother's Day could be a quiet one. So if you'd like to bring a smile to her face with something extra-special, a beautiful, planet-friendly gift box packed with thoughtfully chosen ethical gifts could be just the ticket.
Our gifting expert, Claire, has 4 ideas for the perfect way to show her how much you care.
For a really personal touch, have a think about how she likes to spend her free time and build a hobby-themed box - you can look at our new range of Happy Hour boxes for inspiration. As an example, if she's active and sporty, we have some funky neon hair ties from TieBandz, all-natural yoga resistance bands from With Every Atom and ocean-friendly water bottles from Dopper.
Gifts that keep giving
A bunch of flowers is a lovely gift, but all too soon they end up looking a bit droopy. Whereas a tin of urban meadow flower Seedballs will make her smile all the way to Autumn. The same applies to a long-lasting gift like a bright and cheerful Laura Jackson coaster or reusable ecoffee cup. We all have that everyday item that makes us smile and think warmly of the person who gave it to us.
A lot of our ready-made boxes follow colour-themes. This makes them "pop!" and provides a feast for the eyes when your recipient lifts the lid. Selecting items inspired by your mum's favourite colour can even prompt you to include an unusual item you wouldn't normally pick, but that she'll love.
A top tip for creating a special gift box is to think about balance. When browsing our wide range of ethical gifts, you'll see that there are a number of themes: sweet and savoury treats, drinks, homeware items, jewellery and accessories, books and luxury skincare (too name just a few!). You can easily pick an item from four or five of these categories and you'll have a well-balanced box with a range of treats for your well-deserving mum to enjoy.
