Give Your Mom the Gift of Green for Mother’s Day

Mother's Day green ideas

Sure, you could give mom the usual gifts like flowers and perfume for Mother’s Day. But what about giving her something that’s more meaningful? You don’t need to spend an arm and leg. In fact, the best gifts of all often don’t cost very much. So this Mother’s Day, give her the gift of green and show her (and Mother Earth!) how much you care.

We polled the Happy Stan team and asked what they’ll be giving their Mom’s this year. Most of these won’t break the bank, plus they have low-impacts on the environment.

Mother's Day

Breakfast in bed.
Start cracking those eggs! What Mom wouldn’t love to wake up to a warm breakfast? After you’ve finished cooking, make sure to compost the leftovers. Try this recipe for a Pear Frittata with Feta and Honey.



Jewelry made from a local artist.

Plants and herbs for the garden.

Bike ride along the Trabouley Trail.

Cleaning up the basement and washing the cars (if you have junk to throw away, drop it off to us).

A new tote bag to carry everything from groceries to gym gear made from recycled cotton.


Show your mom some green love, she deserves it.

To all the Mom’s out there, Happy Mother’s Day from Happy Stan’s!
