The saying, Life doesn’t come with a manual, but it does come with a mother, sums up why we celebrate Mother’s Day. Your mom is always there for you; surely she’s earned a special day dedicated to expressing your appreciation to her for putting up with all your shenanigans.
Finding the perfect gift, however, can be a crapshoot. Sure, you could go with flowers, the go-to traditional gesture, but flowers don’t last very long. Gift cards are practical, yet not personal enough for mom. So if you’re a son, daughter, or husband looking for the perfect Mother’s Day gift, something she’ll not only enjoy but feel good about owning, we have 4 awesome, eco-friendly ideas from our natural bamboo home product lines.
Cutting Boards for the Family Chef
If your mom loves to cook but doesn’t like the thought of a plastic cutting board, or she’s still using that scarred-up, under-the counter board, treat her to an elegant upgrade. We offer a variety of gourmet bamboo cutting boards that will make mom feel like a celebrity chef.
Our End Grain Bamboo Cutting Board for tech-savvy moms includes a juice trap, multiple knife slots, and a built-in tablet or smartphone holder so she can read her favorite recipes online (when she’s not using the recipe holder you made for her in the 5th grade, of course). Made of sustainable bamboo, she’ll especially appreciate the juice trap to keep liquids from spilling onto the countertop. Minimal runoff means less mess to clean up after cooking and prevents bacteria buildup she shouldn’t have to worry about. Multiple knife slots ensure cutlery is always handy and the cutting board’s side handles make for easy lifting.
If mom’s kitchen is a bit quaint (okay, small), go for the Dual-purpose Bamboo Stovetop/Countertop Cutting Board with adjustable legs to fit over her gas or electric stove for maximum counter space. It also includes a juice trap, and mom will adore the beautiful, color-contrasting bamboo pattern. If you want to go bigger, our Extra-large Eco-friendly Bamboo Cutting Board with Juice Trap is a thick, wide bamboo butcher block that’s easy to clean with a striking checker board pattern.
Bathtub Caddy to Soak it All in
Baths are to moms what BBQs are to dads. Help her unwind with our Natural Bamboo Bathtub Caddy Tray Organizer that includes a fold-up holder for books, tablets, and phones. Unlike plastic caddies that are not recyclable or metal versions that can rust, bamboo resists moisture and steam so her soaking companion will last for many baths to come. Expandable to fit various sized tubs, this bathtub caddy comes equipped with a spill-prevention wine glass holder! Now mom can bury herself in bubbles and a good book without fearing that she’ll knock the glass into the tub. You can almost hear her say, ahhhhhh…
Breakfast in Bed Tray Fit for a Queen
What’s Mother’s Day without breakfast in bed? Some breakfast trays seem a little awkward, particularly since they’re not made to carry a laptop along with her meal. Why not serve her holiday feast in our Bamboo Air-Cooled Desk/Breakfast Tray with adjustable legs? This innovative, eco-friendly bamboo accessory can be used as a breakfast in bed tray or as a laptop stand and work station for desks, tables, or countertops anywhere in the house. After mom’s finished her food and you’ve done the dishes (it is Mother’s Day, after all), she can fold up her new tray and tuck it neatly under the bed.
Diffuse the Situation with Essential Oil Aromatherapy
Being a mom is not without its stresses; our Essential Oil Aromatherapy Bamboo Room Diffuser with Color-changing Lights soothes mom with a spa-like fragrance treatment right in her own home or office. Perfect for meditation or yoga, the base is made of bamboo, and the hand-blown glass reservoir softly changes colors with the 3 shades of LED lighting. Now who has the cool toys?
Good for Mom, Good for the Environment
We hope these suggestions help you think outside the stem for great Mother’ Day gifts that won’t wilt away or wind up shoved in a drawer. And the best part is that every one of these products is made of 100% natural bamboo classified as a super renewable resource that supports healthy ecosystems. Mom will feel proud of your environmentally-conscious gift selection, but most of all, she’ll feel comfortable knowing her present pleases Mother Earth as well.
