Mother Nature’s big day was in April. Now there are only a few days left until that special Sunday that we’ve (in the U.S., anyway) set aside to honor our own moms, madres, mamans, mutters, and what have you.


I’m mercifully all taken care of in the gift department (thank you Tiburon, Baked and La Familia Green) but I’m guessing plenty of sons, daughters and mother admirers are still struggling to find a special gift for that special lady. Below are 10 (cus that's what my mom scores) unique, home-centric gifts that I’m guessing every eco-momma on the block won’t be receiving on Sunday.


So please, don’t be the one sending Mom an Edible Arrangement (ack!) or expiring flowers (okay, but not exactly creative and you have to be careful in making sure they’re of the fairly traded variety). Make it special.
