The list of Mother’s Day gift ideas and things to do are endless in the Lehigh Valley.  The first gifts that come to mind are flowers, chocolate, and jewelry.  Purchasing these items are appreciated by mom, but there are alternative ways to show mom how much she means to you that can also help the environment!

According to the last U.S. Census, there are over 82.5 million mothers in the United States.  This year, Mother’s Day is on Sunday, May 8.  As with other holidays, buying typical gifts can have a significant environmental impact.

Instead of buying jewelry, although pretty, it’s in the best interest of the environment to try a green alternative!  Spending time with mom will mean more to her than anything else, and will prove that not all memories are made by buying a gift.  Going for a walk in a park, making a meal together (or with the kids), or planting a tree in mom’s honor are great ways to make Mother’s Day special.

If you are looking for a weekend getaway to celebrate Mother’s Day, there are beautiful Bed and Breakfast locations in and around The Lehigh Valley.  Staying local has many benefits, the main one being that you will save some money by not traveling.  Another benefit of celebrating locally is that the money you are spending is going back into our local economy.  One such Bed and Breakfast is the Glasbern, located in Fogelsville, PA.

The Glasbern is a luxurious and romantic Lehigh Valley bed and breakfast inn located on a 100-acre working farm near Allentown, PA to witness sustainable agriculture in action.  The chefs use their passion for farm to table cuisine to create a memorable menu, which is truly direct from the source.

Another location in the Lehigh Valley where mom can be pampered and left feeling relaxed and appreciated is the Spa at Bear Creek.  Here, mom can enjoy such features as a hot stone massage, hydrating facial, manicure/pedicure combination, or a rejuvenating sea polish.  Presenting mom with a gift certificate for this luxurious spa location will leave mom feeling truly special.  Again, by providing mom with a gift right here in the Lehigh Valley, the money spent will be going right back into the local economy.

Celebrate Mother’s Day this Sunday, May 8 with green alternatives to classic consumer bought gifts.  Mom will not only feel appreciated, she’ll be proud!
