Simple Mother’s Day Gift Ideas
Our mothers have given us so much, it’s nice to give back to them especially on special occasions like Mother’s Day. But finding the right gift can be tricky and downright overwhelming. Chequamegon Food Co-op to the rescue! Here are some simple Mother’s Day gift ideas to help you treat Mom on her special day.
- An owner share – Give the gift of ownership in the Co-op. You can purchase an owner share with an initial payment of just $25.
- Books – Whether your mother likes to cook or garden, we have a number of helpful books.
Bubble baths and soap – Help mom relax with a mildly scented bubble bath and luxurious, locally made soaps. Lavender in particular helps promote relaxation, but we have a variety of scents to choose from.
- Chocolates – Whether she likes straight up chocolate or loves to mix it up with berries, nuts, or even caramel, fair trade, organic chocolate is a sweet treat for your mom. Look for tasty flavors from Equal Exchange, Endangered Species, Divine, Green & Black’s, and Chocolove.
- Fair trade & local flowers – A beautiful bouquet will brighten Mom’s day. Help them stay fresher for longer by adding 2 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice, 1 tablespoon of sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon of bleach to one quart of water. Change water daily. If she likes to garden, grab some heirloom flower seeds from Seed Savers Exchange.
- Gardening Gear – If mom likes to putter in the garden, grab her some gloves or a wide-brim hat.
- Gift Basket – We have a large selection of fair trade African market baskets that you can load up with all sorts of other goodies. Tie on a nice bow and you’re set.
- Gift cards – Buy a gift card for any dollar amount and your mom can pick her own gift. Bonus: They are always the right size!
- Hot/Cold Therapy Bags – Therapy bags can be put into the freezer or microwave. Available in a variety of fun fabrics, they make a great gift to ease aches and pains.
