Mother's Day is approaching (March 27th, FYI), and as usual, millions of Londoners will put off buying gifts until the last minute and end up sheepishly offering discounted flowers or having to say the dreaded words "It'll be here tomorrow"... but not you!
Yep. We’ve got you covered with a sustainable Mother’s Day Gift Guide filled with reboxed tech and gift ideas from some of our favourite eco brands.
You can thank us later.
Okay, let’s get into it...
Nothing says 'I love you' like giving your mum a bit of peace and quiet (trust us), so why not gift your mum a pair of reboxed Airpods Pro with active noise cancellation. Buying a reboxed pair is a great way to enjoy all the benefits of new Airpods Pro without costing the Earth. Not only will you save cash, but we’ll plant a tree in our forest with ecologi to help offset its lifetime Co2 emissions.
It’s difficult to narrow down your search to just one thing that expresses your love for your mum, so why not treat her to a hamper filled with gifts that give back. We’re talking about Social Supermarket’s Miss Macaroom x LoveWell Welness Votive Candle Hamper.
Social Supermarket only works with businesses that put more into the world than they take out, so you can be sure your mum is receiving the best planet-friendly products on the market too.
A reboxed apple watch is the perfect accessory for active mums. It not only does what other apple devices can’t (because it’s on their wrist), but it also acts as a fitness partner, sleep monitor and heart rate monitor all in one.
Plus, you can rest easy knowing that you’ve bought a gift that is just as good for your mum as it is for the planet.
Did we mention buying a reboxed apple watch is way cheaper than buying new too?
Help your mum relax in style with Tula and Tye’s eco-friendly and ethically made loungewear. Their affordable and on-trend designs are made from a mixture of pre and post-consumer textiles, organic cotton, and recycled plastic bottles that have been transformed into polyester.
They’re then hand-dyed in the UK using water-based eco-friendly pigments that are non-toxic for both humans and the environment. Win. win.
Gift mum skincare that is as good for your skin as it is for the planet with Bloom and Halo. The UK based brand is committed to helping reduce landfill waste by using a mix of recyclable materials and packaging made from 96% less material than traditional designs.
They also offer instructions on how to recycle each item on each product page so you’re never left asking ‘can I recycle this?’.
