It's Mother's Day this weekend, and Americans are set to spend $16 billion on Mom!
Instead of buying her an oven mitt from Target, try supporting independent workers and small businesses (and joining the Quiet Revolution) by buying these cool gifts:
*2. "Didn't get addicted to drugs" card *(the inside says: "So I guess you did alright!")
3. Homemade food basket of goodies
Check out your local farmers market or food co-op and stuff a basket full of locally-made goodies that your mom loves!
Treat your mom with this sweet-smelling soaps from Sea Grape Bath + Body on scoutmob.com. Scout Mob sells lots of great products from independent artisans across the country. Find other nice smelly soaps on Scout Mob!
Delicious dark chocolate from Equal Exchange, a fair trade coop that supports small farmers. Find other yummy, eco-friendly and people-friendly chocolate!
8. Cat cup
Flowers die, but herbs are for at LEAST a month or so. Make your mom a special little window box arrangement with her favorite herbs in it on your own or with this window box from Shackadale. Find more plant boxes on Shackadale!
What are you getting your mom for Mother's Day?
