6 Mothers Day Gifts for the Zen Mom (Specially Chosen by a Mom)
Devotions by Mary Oliver
“Tell me, what it is you plan to do / with your one wild and precious life?” is one question Mary Oliver asks in this collection of her best work from a literary career spanning five decades. Although the world recently lost this beloved and esteemed Pulitzer Prize-winning poet, her spirit lives on in the over 200 poems in this collection, showing us her love for the physical world and the powerful bonds between all living things. The New York Times has acknowledged Mary Oliver as “far and away, this country’s best-selling poet.” A beautiful and inspiring gift.
Nalulu Bamboo Wind Chimes
Bring calm to a busy day with the relaxing sound of bamboo against bamboo. While metal chimes can become annoying (to you and your neighbors!), we love the soft and mellow sound of these bamboo chimes. Nalulu chimes are handmade with specially chosen sustainable bamboo from tropical Indonesian forests. Each set has 6 different length bamboo tubes that make a wonderful sound in a soft breeze, joining together in peaceful harmony. What more could a mom want?
Arbequina Olive Tree
If you give your mom this Arbequina Olive Tree, she will think of you every time she looks at it! We received one as a gift a couple of years ago and have transplanted it into a gorgeous pot. It lives outside on our deck in full sun and has flourished with very little maintenance. No olives yet on ours (we procrastinated a bit in transplanting it) but the beautiful shape and delicate leaves make us feel like we’re in Tuscany. This tree will produce edible olives and comes with fertilizer and planting guide. May not ship to all states.
Sanuk Yoga Sling Sandals
These Sanuk Yoga Sling shoes are super comfortable! I’ve gotten two pairs so far over the years and still wear them. The sole is made out of yoga mat material and the upper is made of a soft fabric that wraps around your foot and doesn’t rub between your toes. They look great too, better than flip-flops, with tons of beautiful colors and patterns to choose from. I usually get compliments every time I wear them. Keep in mind that they tend to run a half-size big, so size down a bit.
Keomi Organic Soap Set
Your mom is going to love this luxurious set of Keomi organic handmade soaps! The four full-sized bars come individually wrapped in handmade Japanese Washi paper and are ready to give in a lovely decorated gift box. Each bar of soap is a different scent and handmade with a blend of shea and cocoa butters, aromatherapy grade essential oils and over 10 fruit, vegetable, and seed oils, The scents are fresh and pleasant, not “perfumey”. 100% made in the USA by Keomi Naturals with NO animal testing, pesticides, preservatives, or petroleum byproducts.
Silent Mind Tibetan Singing Bowl
The sound of this Silent Mind Tibetan Singing Bowl is mesmerizing! Tibetan singing bowls are used in yoga, mindfulness practice, and meditation to create a sound which synchronizes with your brainwaves, enhancing mental clarity and creativity, initiating relaxation, and restoring peace and harmony within the mind and body. Wow! Sign me up! Each bowl, sized to fit perfectly in your hand, is created by Nepalese artisans and is hand-selected and inspected for sound quality. Comes with a coordinating silk cushion, mallet and guide e-book.
