Paleo Gifts for Mother's Day?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created May 02, 2011 at 2:28 PM

Anybody getting Mom something paleo-related as a Mother's Day gift? Is it to support your mom's paleo lifestyle, or - if she's not paleo - to nudge her in the right direction? :)

I could use your ideas as inspiration since I'm shopping for my mom and mom-in-law right now...

I once read a mom's blog post where she said that for Mother's Day, she requested from her husband a day entirely to herself. He took the kids off to her inlaws', and she wrote that she spent the whole day in bed with an entire chocolate cake and a bottle of Belvedere vodka all to herself. Ain't paleo by any stretch, but I can identify with a day of peace and quiet with a couple of treats that I don't have to share with anybody else for once! ;-D

I totally sleep better when I'm traveling alone. I know some people don't like to stay in hotels, but it's nice not to have to worry about anyone but myself! Even if for just one night.

Ya - preferrably at a nice hotel - with blackout blinds, a king sized bed and a glass of champagne (all by myself!!!)

While that's great and all, any ideas for people who don't eat shellfish? :(

I hope it's ok to plug this here, but one of our own PaleoHackers (akd) has started an all-natural skincare line and her products would make awesome paleo-friendly mother's day gifts! (think coconut oil, avocado, and honey-based lotions, balms, scrubs, etc).

I made my mom an herb garden in a pot last year. Also a salsa garden (tomato/pepper/cilantro) would be good, or a salad garden. These are not directly paleo but are at least a healthy alternative to candy.
