Green Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

At Use-Ta! we love all things sustainable and eco-friendly. Anything that can help make our planet a better place for our little ones gets two thumbs up from us! In the interest of a special day coming up very soon, I thought I would collate a few green pressie ideas that you might like to use for your own mum or pass on to a significant other (#getthehint). 

Women's Clothing and Accessories

Preloved Designer Clothing – Mutual Muse 

Literally down the road from Use-Ta!, we love the vibe of this place! Such a fab range of independent designers like Obus, Kawaii and Mister Zimi. There's something here for every stylish mumma. Check out their website to look at their range.


What woman doesn’t love a bit of sparkle and glam? This online store stocks unique, ethically handmade jewellery from Spain which is designed in Australia. Pieces use a combination of sustainable metals and recycled materials. Sooo pretty! 

The 80 twenty collection 

Featuring clothes and accessories for women, it was the Deon Dane watches that caught my eye. Made from sustainable kangaroo leather, these watches are both stylish and functional. You can check them out here. 



KMF Beauty Therapy 

One of my favourite local places to visit. Treat your mum (or yourself) to one of Kate’s amazing treatments. She uses USpa which are Australian made botanical products. Check out the full range of Kate’s treatments here. 

Melvory Skincare 

Hand made using natural and plant based materials, these products really do wonders. Not only are they kind to skin, they're kind to the planet. Melvory have a commitment to green packaging, fair trade and ethical processes. They stock great gifts for the pregnant or new mum too!   


Other Gifts

A Quirk of Fate 

Another neighbour of ours, you can find a treasure trove of planet friendly gift ideas for Mum. We particularly love their glass drink bottles and stylish green bags. And just quietly, we love their colour focused drool worthy Instagram feed too. Check them out! 

Hooked in a Box 

This Perth based online gift box service has the perfect pressie for a new mum. They source products that are handmade, natural, organic, eco-friendly, socially responsible or made from sustainable materials. It’s the gorgeous personalised and sustainably sourced wooden box that I love!  

Effortless Eco 

This online store is full of eco options. I particularly like the cutlery set. Great for when you’re out and about and also ideal for the office worker who likes to pack their own lunch but can never find any clean cutlery in the lunchroom. 

Organic Fix 

At this store in Eltham, VIC you can not only get your dose of local sourced organic produce, but a whole range of ethical and sustainable products such as cleaning supplies and beauty products. 

Rainbow Chai 

This one’s for the chai lovers out there. Run solar power this business hand blends its teas and uses recycled packaging. Based in NSW they also have an online store where you can purchase their range of teas, as well as other tea related paraphernalia. 

I hope this has given you some inspiration for a greener Mother’s Day. Don’t forget, there is always the handmade voucher from your little ones for extra cuddles and kisses. What mum wouldn’t want that? Hope you have a wonderful day!
