Mom's the Word

MothersdayFresh out of green gift ideas for Mom? HGTV picked this cute countertop compost pail as its Mother's Day selection for the "eco-friendly mom." Our suggestions:

  • For the foodie mom: Treat her to brunch, lunch, or dinner at a restaurant specializing in seasonal, regional cuisine. Or reciprocate for all those home-cooked meals by whipping up a fresh organic feast yourself.
  • For the literary mom: A purse handcrafted from an old book or made out of recycled newspaper.
  • For the quirky mom: A bracelet made out of recycled flatware, earrings refashioned from old tin cans, or a necklace with a china-shard charm.
  • For the socially-conscious mom: A beautiful bowl, scarf, or picture frame made by artisans in a developing country.
  • For the traditional mom: Organic or VerifFlora-certified flowers, of course.
  • For the fashionable mom: Elegant fair-trade jewelry that supports women's rights.
  • For the meditative mom: Organic-cotton yoga pants or a hemp journal.
  • For the outdoorsy mom: Recycled-steel earrings reflecting her favorite active pursuit or sportswear that incorporates recycled fabrics.
  • For the indulgent mom: Organic or fair-trade chocolate. (You know she'll share!)
