Taylor’s Ethical Mother’s Day Gift Guide
For UK Mother’s Day we asked our Head of Brand Partnerships and mom to Ayla, Taylor, to share what she’d love for Mother’s Day. In this editorial, you’ll find the perfect sustainably minded gift for the different women in your life!
A Beautiful Bouquet – Petalon Flower Delivery
You can’t go wrong with a beautiful bouquet of flowers, especially for the mom that already has everything she needs. Petalon Flower’s is a longstanding favourite of the whole Rev team and is always my go-to when sending flowers. Not only do they have a B Corp Status, but they are certified carbon neutral and donate 100% of their end of year profits to UK conservation projects. On their 85 acres of land, half is dedicated to growing beautiful local flowers for their orders and the other half is devoted to local wildlife. They have the most beautiful arrangements available for pre-order right now for Mother’s Day!
A Spa Moment Out – Pfeffer Sal
Every mom needs some me time – regardless of their kid’s age! This Mother’s Day give the gift of true relaxation at Pfeffer Sal, my favourite place in London to book in for a facial. Everyone at this spa is a true skin expert, so while you relax under a warm weighted blanket and an incredible facial massage, magic is truly being worked on the skin. Pfeffer Sal only use the best of the best skincare on the market – that means so nasty ingredients that are potentially harmful for you or the planet. I highly recommend booking their Welcome Essential Facial so the woman in your life can get a face scan so the amazing facialists know exactly what the skin needs.
A Spa Moment in – Organic Skincare
If the mom in question can’t make it to a spa easily, gift her the essentials to pamper herself and her skin at home. For treatments there is nothing more luxurious than the Eclat & Gommage Extraordinaire Duo Kit by La Fervance. The Eclat boosts skin hydration and visibly reduces fine lines, while working on skin elasticity and firmness. The Gommage is a beautiful natural exfoliant that instantly softens and smooths the skin, leaving skin brighter and plumper after use. To pair with the treatments, the Super Serum Rituals Beauty Kit by ilody are the perfect duo to combat aging and boost hydration. In this kit, you’ll find ilody’s hydrating radiance serum and collagen serum, which together feed the skin powerful ingredients like tremella mushroom, bakuchiol, Persian silk tree, and kombucha. This duo is a perfect cocktail for every skin type. Lastly, pair all of this with ilody’s Kansa Wonder Wand, an Ayurvedic beauty tool that has been used for over 5,000 years for a reason. It is a wonder for promoting lymphatic drainage, de-puffing the skin, and sculpting the face – plus it just feels amazing!
An Organic Hamper – Daylesford
There is no better gift than the edible and drinkable kind. Our friends at Daylesford make some of the best hampers on the market – beautiful, sustainable, and organic. They have a large range of hampers that range in price and size, so there really is something for everyone. You can’t go wrong with the Love & Joy Hamper, which has two organic sparkling wines, a gorgeous candle and hand cream, and a box of sea salt caramel hearts. Another favourite of mine is the Good Morning Hamper, so you can treat mom to a beautiful breakfast in bed – it even has the makings for mimosas!
An Organic Wine Delivery – Raw Wine
If the mom in question loves wine, look no further than Raw Wine’s, who have one of the best curations of organic, natural, and biodynamic wines from around the world. The wine industry is a male dominated world, which is another reason we love Raw Wine because it is founded by Isabelle Legeron MW, who was noted as one of the 50 most powerful women in wine. Her eshop is actually the largest section of natural wine in the UK, so there is absolutely a wine for everyone on Raw Wine. Each wine has a great written up profile, making it seamless and user-friendly to pick the right wine!
A Beautiful Piece of Jewelry – Adriana Chede
You truly cannot go wrong with a piece of jewelry to let that mom in your life know how incredibly special they are. A physical reminder to mom that she is loved and appreciated! Adriana Chede Fine Jewellery is one of my favourite UK based makers, as all her pieces are handmade using responsible practices with recycled materials. Her pieces also range in price, making her gorgeous creations very accessible. Her Gold Creole Hoops are timeless and truly would suit any one at any age. Another item I love from Adriana’s collection on REV is the Éclair Chain Bracelet with a beautiful diamond. It is effortlessly chic and would sit beautifully on the wrist as a standalone accessory or joined by an assortment of bracelets.
A Thoughtful Read - Yoga For Motherhood
A fantastic gift to give any mother is London based yoga teacher Naomi Annand’s book, Yoga for Motherhood. A mom herself, a teacher with over twenty years experience in yoga, and the owner of the East London yoga studio, Yoga On The Lane, Annand really knows what she is talking about. A book every mother should have on their shelf! It is a resource for moms to help navigate the different emotions that come along with motherhood – the emotional lows and highs. The book walks you through bread-led sequences to calm the nervous system and uplift a tired body – things most mothers can definitely relate to! I’ve loved this book personally and think it is a beautiful resource for parents.
