    Zero Waste Mother's Day Gifts

    Zero Waste Mother's Day Gifts

    When you have a small business, you tend to think about holidays and when you make skincare, Mother's Day is a great holiday.  You hope people want to buy something special for their "mother".  And by "mother" I mean anyone who has nurtured, mentored and cared for you, perhaps even giving birth to you.  But there is also the "BIG MAMA" to consider- our beautiful and fragile planet.  It's possible to show your love and affection to your special moms while treading lightly on our planet.

    When you're thinking about zero waste gifts for mom, it's important to think about what your mom likes, enjoys and considers a special treat.  If at all possible, give the gift of you.  A lunch, coffee or walk together is the perfect gift for someone you love.

    Give the Gift of an Experience-  I recently had a super crummy day and it was also super crummy weather, I took myself to the matinee and watched Emma Watson as Belle in Beauty and the Beast.  It was the perfect relaxing mood enhancer that I needed to get myself going again.  Alone in the dark with popcorn and my legs stretched out in a double date seat.  

    Give the Gift of Local or Farm- When you shop local more money is kept in your community- it's an easy way to support your neighbors.  I've written a blog "Become a BFF to Small Businesses"  with lots of tips on how to be a supporter of small, local and indie businesses.  I saw a recent social media post from a local flower farm offering gift certificates for bouquets- what mom wouldn't love that.  Feel free to ask your favorite farmer for a gift certificate- they will be happy to make one up for you.

    Give the Gift of Art- the Arts are fundamental to our humanity and fosters goodness, creativity and beauty- all qualities of our beloved moms.  Enjoy a concert, open mic night, gallery walk or visit an artist studio.

     

    Give the Gift of Food- Make something delicious yourself, buy from a local food shop or enjoy a meal in a restaurant but nothing brings out the love like a good tasty food.

    And finally Give to a Cause-  You know what is important to your mama, support the organizations that she supports. Now more than ever standing up for love and kindness is so important.

    Give the Gift of Service- Every day I walk and I pick up trash but especially on holidays I try to making cleaning up my environment a priority.  Get out, pick up some trash in honor of your mom and Mother Nature.

     

     

    Maine Made for Mother's Day

    Maine Made for Mother's Day

    Opening a jar of Dulse & Rugosa skincare transports you to summer in Maine and makes the perfect gift for Mom.

    Claire's personal favorite is our Sweet Island Face Oil.  

    "I use it every night as my face cleanser.  What I love is how it's a mini facial and stress reliever.  It moisturizes my face while removing dirt and make up.  I don't get that dry, wrinkly feeling that many face cleanser leave.  It helps my older skin stay smooth and radiant."

    Carly loves our Island Facial Scrub.  

    "I still struggle with breakouts even though I haven't been a teenager for awhile.  I keep our Maine seaweed rich face scrub in the shower and use every other day.  It keeps my face calm and happy."

    Rose loves the Calendula Night Creme.  

    "This is a rich nourishing creme which keeps my face hydrated and moist."

    Dulse and Rugosa is celebrating Mother's Day with our "Queen Mum Giveaway".  It's full of lovely Dulse & Rugosa skincare and a handcrafted Royal Blue Sea Glass Tiara.  Join our mailing list to enter.
