Body Pamper Gift Basket at Dandelion Mud Pie

Green Gifts for Mom


There are some (ok, many) among us who still need a gift for Mother's Day (this Sunday, you know). Dandelion Mud Pie, Toronto's newest entry into the green retailing market, makes it easy for us to give the gift of green. No, not American dollars, but green gift baskets, featuring eco-friendly products perfect for Mom.

Really, what mother doesn't deserve some products perfect for pampering? You can choose from various gift baskets, each in ready-to-give form, so that not only are the products eco-friendly, but no trees are sacrificed for wrapping paper.

Choose from baskets featuring products to help Mom rest and relax or pamper her feet or body.

Each basket is $30 or $35, which is a bargain compared to a nice bouquet of flowers. Plus the selection of teas, lotions and scrubs won't whither away by the next weekend.

For the sweet smell of R & R, grab the Rest & Relax basket, filled with a lavender tea and an eye pillow, along with a handmade tea cup. The Foot Treat and Body Pamper baskets feature appropriate salts, scrubs, lotions and (non-edible) butters. The latter even includes a small bar of dark chocolate, for added enjoyment.

It's not too late to get your gift for Mother's Day, and Dandelion Mud Pie provides about as easy a solution as there is. And I'm willing to bet that your mom will be about as happy as can be when she sees her gift.

Find the baskets at 6 Fairlawn Ave, 5 blocks north of Lawrence, just off Yonge.
