Mother's Day

Our 10 favorite fictional moms and what sustainable gifts we would give to them for mother’s day.

Nourishing and eco-friendly gifts for mom no longer have to be a struggle to pinpoint. Let our suggestions for these ten fictional moms guide you towards finding the right fight for the mom, nurturer or loved one in your life. 

Lois (Malcolm in the Middle)

Silicone Stretch Wrap (if it isn’t useful for storing foods, we’re sure that she could find a way to use it in a scheme for getting revenge).


Dr. Lucille Carmichael (Rugrats)

A Laundry Sampler because she is into trying new things (like tinkering around with making perfect replica Tiffany lamps and Eiffel Tower jell-o molds just for fun). 

Linda Belcher (Bob’s Burgers)

A Compost Drop Off Membership because she needs somewhere to put the food scraps leftover from her raccoon restaurant

Morticia Addams (Addams Family)

A Notice Shampoo Bar for her long, luxurious and iconic hair

Lorelei Gilmore (Gilmore Girls)

A Balmie in the shade of Cherry because she likes to do things with flair

Lucille Bluth (Arrested Development)

Brow Wax so that she can add fierceness to her judgemental expressions.

Marge Simpson (The Simpsons)

A Soy Candle that she can keep all to herself (and use to mask the smells coming from the kitchen late at night).

Helen Thermopolis (The Princess Diaries)

Bunches of Dreamy C Herbal Tea because after teaching her soon-to-be-princess daughter art in the beautiful restored fire station that they call home, she’s always up for a solid stretch of reading, relaxing and sipping a warm beverage. 

Helen Parr (The Incredibles)

Silicone Stretch Lids because we think that Elastigirl would enjoy the versatility and overall extreme stretchiness of the six different sized covers.

Yuki Ishii-Peters (Pen-15)

Lots and lots of Peppermint Eucalyptus Bubble Bath for her long soaks in the tub with her loud but loveable daughter Maya

Sophia Petrillo (The Golden Girls)

A Sweater Stone to keep her pastel cardigans in excellent condition while she serves up quick witted comebacks to the girls
