Sustainable Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Sustainable Mother's Day Gift Guide

The tradition of honouring mothers and motherly figures dates back to ancient Greece and is now recognised worldwide as a worthy day to celebrate. And so, as Mother’s Day is the perfect opportunity to say ‘thank you’ to the mother figure in your life, we’ve put together a few sustainable gift ideas – all made with love in Ionian. 

Despite our ample appreciation for our mums, it can sometimes feel that no gift can match the love and care she gives us. Whilst flowers and a card are always nice, why not try mixing it up this year with a gift that is made to last? A sustainable and ethical gift is the perfect symbol for enduring love and gratitude! Celebrate all that she is and all that she does with a thoughtful Mother’s day gift that is eco-friendly and sustainable.

The Aetheria candle comes in three delicious scents which are evocative of Mediterrean aromas. Each candle in the Aetheria range is available in a different colourway ensuring you can find the style that suits your loved-one best.
