PR2000023812_card4_lgFlowers and chocolates  are a traditional choice for such days and always welcome. Especially when you choose a few plastic free, more eco options.




What mum doesn’t love a garden? Or Monty Don? Or Waitrose? Then check this…  while looking for some plastic free secateurs I came across these from Japan. At 80.00 they are outside my price range but they look lovely, are recommended by Monty Don, come in a box (less plastic packaging) and are sold by Waitrose. What can I say!

If you cant afford that there are some other (cheaper) options here, recommended by me.

And a lot more garden related gifts here.

But what if I am stereotyping your mum? what if she hates the gardening, wants to wipe the grin off that smug buggers face and only shops in Lidles? You could try these plastic free delights that can double as gifts.

Wrappings & Cards

Gift got you need to wrap it. You can find plastic free gift wrapping options and cards here.

  1. Yes it is a bit pricey. I think its the bee saving thing that’s important. Like buying a zebra at the zoo. Love your blog. Really sweet.

  2. Some great ideas here!

    As much as I love your idea of having a share in a bee hive, I cannot afford £25 for a pound of honey! Sorry! I am sure there are many other advantages!

    I adore the beautiful bunches of daffodils around at the moment, from the local farm shop they are grown in the area (reducing milage) so they actually have a daffodil scent, and they are just bunched up with an elastic band, (re-usable!).

    I love the idea of the English flowers by post, what a fab idea, might just ask the other half for a subscription!
