If you’ve gone through childbirth, you know that your Mother really does deserve something special once a year, if not once a week! Make sure to do something special for your Mamazon this Sunday.. even if it’s just making her a cake, sending her a beautiful email, or donating to her favorite charity.   Of course, we like to buy gifts..   here are some of our faves for this Mo’s Day:

The Solio Classic hybrid handheld solar charger ($99.95)  will store power from the sun or outlet to charge Mom’s cell phone, pda, ipod & more-  great for  a mom-on-the-move!

 Solio Classic Universal Hybrid Charger, $99.95 @theultimategreenstore.com

Mamadukes may cry just a wee bit when you bestow her with this necklace that you have engraved with your name, your sibs names, and your D.O.B’s.   Talk about a keepsake!

Imperial Palace Necklace, $129 -and up- @threesistersjewelrydesign.com

Get your hip Mama a classic little black dress for the Spring/ Summer season. We adore this Nixxi dress below because it’s universally flattering, made from earth lovin’ bamboo viscose and organic cotton stretch jersey, and is something she will wear constantly… which means you will be on her mind even more than you usually are!

We are all so totally obsessed with entirely natural, organic, and vegan skincare line Tata Harper not only because it works incredibly well.. but because this stuff looks gorgeous in our bathrooms, smells like heaven, and is priced reasonably.   You will love every single product in the line, and relish that it is made with love by Tata and her family on their own organic farmland.

Terra Plana is rocking our Chakra by producing some gorgeous new vegan styles.   And this ‘aint PVC crap..
The Caecilia is a leap forward in sustainable design. The shoe features a memory foam footbed, recycled rubber and rice husk combination sole, Eco PU and recycled PET mesh and nylon. And for the shorty Mommas, though the heel height is 3.5″, the .75″ platform makes it feels like 2.75″ on!   Mom will look foxy, be comfy (these heels literally feel like sneaks on the foot,) and kvell over your eco-conscientiousness.

Less exciting, but certainly most useful is the green garmento bag.   This eco-friendly alternative to single-use plastic drycleaning bags can be used in so many ways it’s ridonkulous! Use it as a 3-in-1 laundry bag, a reusable hanging garment bag, a carrying bag and duffel bag, a reusable drycleaning bag, and/ or a hanging hamper.     This bag is the bees knees.

Green Garmento Bag, $7 @thegreengarmento.com

Keep her feet cozy with this  Ivory Faux Fur Mongolian Lamb Area Rug which is as luxe as it is soft.

Send her the gift of chocolate, fudge, and caramels.. all vegan and made with love by a Momma in California and shipped to your special Lady – door to door!   Allison’s Gourmet has some gorgeous Mother’s Day gift baskets to choose from and we don’t know a lady alive who wouldn’t savor their classic Brownie or Cookie of the Month Club.

This adorable teapot is made by the very vegan Emily McCoy (Mom to little vegan Rose, vegan since inception!) at her Daisy Dog Studio in NYC, and sold by the wonderful Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary.. so all proceeds benefit their sweet animals and wonderful work.
