Sustainable Gifts for Mother’s Day 2022
What if you could send a Mother’s Day gift that also had a positive social impact? At Social Stories Club, we’re pretty passionate about gift giving and there’s nothing better than the feeling of finding that perfect present and seeing your loved ones faces as they open it. But what if your gift could also support education projects for girls in Africa or help fight food waste at the same time? Packed using 100% sustainable materials and full of delicious products made by social venture businesses, each one of our gifts support social or environmental causes. Suitable for all budgets and dietary requirements, we can send your gift straight to the recipient so you don’t even have to gift wrap it! But if you’re feeling stuck for ideas then you’ve come to the right place. In this blog post we share our sustainable gift ideas to help you build the ultimate gift box for Mother’s Day.
