Eco Mother's Day gift guide

Treat your mum this Mother's Day, with one of these gorgeous gifts that also help to protect the environment and improve wellbeing!

Mary Jean bath bombs
RSPB Bug and Bee House

Mary Jean Geranium Mini Bath Bombs £11.99

We love these bath bombs from Mary Jean. Real petals and the soothing scent of geranium are released as each bath bomb gently fizzes – ideal for a relaxing soak, and creating a luxurious, spa-like atmosphere. This is a great value gift – there are 20 bath bombs in each pack, and although small, only one is needed to soften and fragrance the bath water. Also available in calming lavender, ylang ylang, or refreshing tea tree and peppermint. Mary Jean is a family-owned company, based in a picturesque valley in Speyside – creating fresh, natural skincare products using traditional methods and with minimal impact on the environment.

Isle of Skye Candle Company Wooden Heart candle

Isle of Skye Candle Company Wooden Heart candle £18

The lovely, uplifting scent of the Wooden Heart candle brings the outdoors inside, thanks to an exclusive blend of tea tree, cedar wood and orange. This is a feel-good blend, and is sure to delight nature-loving mums. Isle of Skye Candle Company candles are made from hand-poured natural soya wax, containing no pesticides, herbicides, or genetically modified material, and fragranced with botanical oils. This makes them a luxury, eco alternative to paraffin wax candles, which release pollutants when burned and can be detrimental to your health and to the environment. These quality eco candles are sustainable, biodegradable – and burn longer than paraffin candles too, filling your room with long-lasting fragrance.

Wild Sage Pamper Box £35

This pamper box by Wild Sage is a lovely treat for your mum. Handcrafted by a small, family-run business in Herefordshire, this luxury collection of natural products is made using homegrown ingredients such as lavender, rosemary and chamomile. The box includes Argan Beauty Balm – a nourishing moisturiser that's ideal for dry skins and smells gorgeous – and a soothing lavender and geranium soap that has a wonderful, relaxing fragrance. There's also bath and body oil, scented with lavender and geranium essential oils, a rose clay and honey face mask, and a white cotton facecloth – all presented in a smart, reusable tin. Wild Sage use biodegradable and compostable packaging too.

Coconut Blush Handmade Rose Bud Posy Soap £4.95

These beautiful posy soaps by Coconut Blush are handmade in the Peak District. Each soap is made from argan oil and cocoa butter, and is adorned with rose buds. The soaps have a lovely handmade feel, with crafty touches such as rubber stamps and embossing on the labels. And this is an excellent eco option too – as well as being free from harsh chemicals and artificial fragrances, the soap labels are made with 100 per cent recycled paper from post-consumer waste from UK schools and offices. The soaps come in a range of fragrances – we love neroli and basil, with its uplifting, sweet fragrance that fills the bathroom – and hold their shape well when in use.

Gluttonous Gardener wildflower meadow kit

The Gluttonous Gardener Wildflower Meadow kit £30

The Gluttonous Gardener produces personalised, eco-friendly gardening gifts for green-fingered loved ones. There are lots of lovely gift ideas, including a Jam Garden crate, which contains everything you need to make delicious jam – including blackberry and loganberry plants, and a personalised wooden spoon. We particularly like the Wildflower kit, containing enough seed to create a colourful 10-square-metre meadow of beautiful, wildlife-friendly British wildflowers, including cornflowers, marigolds and poppies. Gluttonous Gardener gifts are packaged using materials that are reusable, recyclable or compostable. This includes unique reusable wooden crates – check out the company's website for ideas for reusing the packaging.

RSPB Bug and Bee House £21.99

Pollinating insects need our help, and this stylish home for bugs and bees makes an ideal gift for mums who want to create a wildlife haven in the garden. Made from durable FSC timber and painted in an attractive soft green, it's best placed in a sheltered, sunny position. Hang it from its hook or place on a wall or ledge. It's a fantastic home for solitary bees, ladybirds and other pollinating insects such as lacewings. These insects are especially beneficial if you grow your own fruit and vegetables, as they can help to control pests and diseases – as well as pollinate your crops. Buying gifts from the RSPB shop helps aid nature conservation in the UK.

Liberty Lou ribbon bracelet

Pretty, individually designed bracelets by Liberty Lou are made using beautiful Liberty ribbons, along with beads and charms, to produce a timeless, vintage look. Each charming, adjustable Liberty ribbon bracelet features an exquisite design, and there is a range of different colours, prints and designs to choose from – all handmade in Derbyshire. We particularly love this mustard yellow, double wrap bracelet with a star – perfect for showing Mum how much you appreciate her! By supporting small businesses like Liberty Lou, you're contributing to local economies and helping to create thriving communities.

Kevin Kendle Terra: Music for Mother Earth £11.50

The latest release from talented musician Kevin Kendle is an evocative celebration of our amazing planet – and would make a very apt gift for nature-loving mums.  Highlighting aspects of natural beauty and wonder – from vast oceans to green forests and majestic mountains – the haunting, atmospheric music envelops the listener with flowing melodies that conjure up images of beautiful landscapes.
