4. Eco-Friendly Frying Pan by Ecolution Artistry

Did you know that cookware can be environmentally-friendly? Apparently so. Ecolution Artistry cookware uses water-based Hydrolon, a PFOA-free nonstick, that results in fewer Greenhouse gases. When nonstick is applied to the pan, Hydrolon evaporates rather than emitting harmful PFOA toxins into the air. So, if your mom loves to cook, this would be the perfect gift. US$15.46.

5. Gorgeously Green: 8 Simple Steps to an Earth-Friendly Life by Sophie Uliano
I first saw this book on a coffee table at a spa while waiting for my spa therapist. That was five years ago. I was impressed by how easy this book was to read. It was filled with great information, and easy instructions on how to make everyday life eco-friendly. Seeing it again, listed on some websites as the perfect Mother’s Day gift, makes me happy to include it in my top 5 best gifts for Mom. S$25. This book is available in all leading bookstores in Singapore, or click here to purchase it on Books Kinokuniya online 😉

Happy Mother’s Day everyone ♥
