Handmade SoapsNot all of us are lucky enough to be craft divas ready to whip up the perfect gift for Mother’s Day. For the rest of us there is Etsy where you can find a beautiful handmade gift mom is sure to love.  Whether or not you want to fess up to buying your handmade gift is up to you.

Flowers are a traditional fall back gift for mom, but this year consider a handmade floral-inspired gift that will last a bit longer.  Here are my top picks for eco-friendly Mother’s Day gifts.  All of the gifts in this roundup are floral-inspired and made from natural and sustainable materials.

Handmade SoapsAll natural handmade soaps are beautiful and useful. Soaps here and at top by Alchemic Muse, a member of the Etsy Green and Clean Guild.

Wisteria Blossoms BagThis gorgeous Wisteria Blossoms Bag by Uzura made from hemp linen is perfect for a green minded mama.

Felted Wool Flower BroochFor a simple and sweet gift I love these flower brooches made from felted wool sweaters by The June Bride.

Table RunnerIf mom loves to entertain this HomeSweet hand block printed table runner is ideal.

Reclaimed Wood FrameA reclaimed wood frame by Chalecco allows you to personalize your gift by adding mom’s favorite flower (like the way the frames are styled for this photo) or a favorite photo of you and mom.

Fabric FlowersInstead of fresh flowers that will quickly wilt, surprise mom with a fabric flower bouquet. These beauties by So She Sews are stuffed with dried lavender.
