Put mom in harmony with nature this Mother’s Day by offering her some gifts and experiences that pamper, entertain, and indulge.
Pamper Her au Naturel
On the Green Spa Network you can find an environmentally friendly spa for a healthier experience. Give her a luxurious tea, bath salt, and candle combination in a fabulous fuschia hatbox from Chai Baby.
Share with mom one of Outstanding in the Field’s outdoor feasts on an urban farm, vineyard, or even a sea cave.
Accessorize Her for the Garden
Woman’s Work offers a great line of gloves designed just for women. The Bog Glove (below), a cotton knit glove is “dipped” in latex to waterproof fingers and palm, allows the back of the hand to breathe and it’s pre-curved fingers make it great for gripping tools.
The Original Foxglove (below) offers barehanded sensitivity while keeping hands and nails clean when planting, potting and weeding, and it’s classic style is perfect to wear as a cool weather accessory too.
Happy Mother’s Day!
