Mother’s Day Candles & Other Ethical Gift Ideas

Mother’s Day Candles & Other Ethical Gift Ideas

Quick heads-up guys: Mothering Sunday is just around the corner. And if you’re looking for gift ideas to treat the special lady in your life, we’ve got you covered. Check out these gorgeous Mother’s Day candles (made by yours truly), as well as some more of our favourite ethical Mother’s Day gift ideas.

Lovely, smelly (in a nice way) Mother’s Day candles

Nothing says 'I love you Mum' like a handmade, luxury candle. Well, that's what we think anyway. Our recycled candles come in a range of beautiful fragrances, carefully designed and created by Richard and Sargon in our Exeter workshop. And because all of our candles are made out of recycled wax, you can feel smug about doing your bit for the environment too!

A Stunning Photo of Her Favourite Child (you)

If you don’t think Mum has enough photos of you on her mantlepiece, add another to the collection. Seriously though, a happy family photo is a thing to be celebrated. Particularly as most of us have been separated from family for so long over the last year. Mum will love it. 

Tickets to a Show

Is this a little too hopeful? Theatres have been closed for so long now, but we’ve been told the aim is to have business as usual from the end of June (fingers crossed!). What a treat for mum, to have tickets to see her favourite show sometime in the near future. And not just some livestream event on her TV - a show in a REAL theatre, with REAL people!

A Handmade Card or a Letter

Nothing says it better than a letter. Tell her what she means to you and how much you appreciate her. Share some favourite memories of her. It’s not always easy and frankly just downright awkward for us Brits to say how we really feel. Write it all down in a letter for a heartfelt mother’s day gift she’ll really treasure.

If you’re not a person of many words, put all that love into crafting a handmade card. These ideas look achievable!

Breakfast in Bed

The classic mother’s day treat. It might be a bit difficult to provide breakfast in bed for mum this year. Particularly if you don’t live nearby. But you could get it delivered! Find out if her favourite local cafe will deliver and get it sent freshly made to her front door.

Handmade Soap

Have a go at making your own if you like (we’ve all got time on our hands right now). Or we can recommend these lovely handmade soaps by Soap Daze. Made by Sharon in her Devon workshop and completely natural, plastic free, and vegan friendly. You can get a gift set delivered straight to your Mum with a handwritten note included.

Posh Bath Salts

Along the same lines of nice, smelly things, relaxing bath salts are a real treat for mums who like a good long soak in the bath. We love these bath salts from Plum & Ashby. Plastic free, handmade in Hampshire and 99% natural ingredients. They also smell amazing.

Sweet Treats

Some of our favourite brands are those that make top quality products without sacrificing their values. For Roly's Fudge that means making delicious fudge using only top quality ingredients (not cheaper alternatives) by staff who are paid a fair wage in small, friendly businesses rather than cost-efficient factories. And you can really taste the difference!

And whilst we know you shouldn't judge a book by its cover (or a chocolate bar by its wrapper), we also love the super stylish packaging of Ocelot chocolates. Made in Scotland by a husband and wife team who choose to take a smaller profit margin so that they can make the most delicious and most ethical chocolate products.

Bag her some Bling

There seems to be a bit of a trend towards more considered fashion choices these days, which we really hope becomes a big thing! There are loads of great ethical jewellery brands to choose from, but we love this simple Zero Waste Pendant from Yala. Made from small pieces of brass offcuts that are rescued from the Yala workshop and shaped into a beautiful pendant, each one is unique.

An Extra Special Limited Edition Hamper

We've got together with some of our favourite brands to put together a really special hamper for Mother's Day this year. Our limited edition luxury hamper includes two Ginger & Lime Recycled Candle Company candles, bath salts from Plum & Ashby and two packets of delicious Roly's Fudge. We'll also include a hand-written card - just tell us what to write and we'll add it to the hamper for your mum!  

Spoil her this Mother's Day with luxury goodies delivered directly to her door.
