Need some last-minute inspiration for Mother’s Day? How about treating your mother (or any special woman in your life) to something meaningful while also remembering Mother Earth? Surely, there’s nothing more rewarding than giving a gift that has a low impact on the planet, is ethically sourced, locally grown or gives back to the environment.

Here are some local, eco-conscious gift ideas for the special mama in your life:

1. Indoor bulb gardens

Indoor bulb gardens are an easy and fun gift! Inexpensive and versatile, they can be planted into pots for a simple gift.

See the tutorial at World Market

Where to find it: Whistler Garden Shop , Whistler Garden Center and Whistler Home Hardware

2. Yoga class package

If your mama is into yoga, consider getting her a class package at your local studio.
