Eco-Friendly Gifts for Mom & Dad

Mother's Day will be here in a blink of an eye, and Father's Day comes soon after that.  So I thought I'd share some Mother's Day and Father's Day gift possibilites with eco-friendliness on the mind.  

First, let's talk Mother's Day, because it comes first, and it's right around the corner being at about three and a half weeks away.

If your mom likes jewelry, these recycled sterling silver earrings might be the perfect gift!  Handmade from scratch in Seattle, Washington, they are eco-friendly and absolutely beautiful.

Available for purchase at Lily Emme Jewelry.

Ever heard of Plarn?  It's plastic yarn, made from recycled plastic bags!  If your mom likes tote bags, this crocheted plarn tote could very well be her new favorite.

Available for purchase at Arts of Eska.

Next up is something fun - Denim Pocket Wallet for iPhone!  People always tuck their phones into their pockets, so I thought this to be a fantastic idea.  Plus, the creator of this unique gift idea was just featured on Tuesday's Eco-Fashion post, and she's offered a coupon code for readers (YAY!).  Use code MORESMILES to save 10% off!!!

Available at SmiLeaGainCreations.

And we all know that flowers are often a great Mother's Day gift.  How about a  unique and sophisticated black vase made from a recycled/upcycled tequila bottle?  I love it!

Available for purchase at Conversation Glass.

Conversation Glass was featured in last week's Eco-Friendly Finds post, and the owners of the shop have generously offered a coupon code for YOU, my readers!  Use coupon code 2JUSTBYOU and receive 25% your order from Conversation Glass.  Offer expires May 31st.

Now, let's talk about what the gift possibilities are for DADS!  

Here's another one from Conversation Glass, because these might be perfect for the Man Cave!  And don't forget, you can use coupon code 2JUSTBYOU to save 25% on your order!

Available at Conversation Glass.

Next up, something for the fisherman!  These beauties are called Recyclures by Tedd McDonah, and there are so many to choose from.  Pretty cool, right?

Available for purchase at Tedd McDonah.  

Does your dad need a new wallet/card holder?  This one is made from a recycled/upcycled bike inner tube!  How awesome is that?

Available for purchase at urchin bags.  

These holidays celebrating parents may seem far off in the future, but they're really not.  I hope these eco-friendly gift ideas have you thinking about what YOUR mom or dad might like that's recycled into something new and unique.

Have a great day!
