How Many Mums Can You Spoil in One Day?

How Many Mums Can You Spoil in One Day?

One, two, three..? How about thousands!

That might sound like a tall order, but every year Animals Australia finds a new way to spoil your Mum, whilst also helping out the thousands of mother animals who are locked up inside factory farms.

This year Animals Australia has hooked up with 'Growing Gifts' to create what I think is simply the most awesome Mother's Day gift anyone could buy ... a bundle of goodies that includes a real live lemon-scented tea tree! I just wish I was a Mum so someone would buy this for me! :-)

Looks preeeeetty swish, huh? The real value in this gift however is the bit you don't see in the picture. Each 'Growing Gift' helps to fund important campaigns to end factory farming, like this one, this one and this one.

Pigs are one of the smartest animals on the planet -- as smart as dogs and 3 year old children! Yet in factory farms mother pigs are locked up in tiny crates so small they can't even turn around. Pretty shocking, right? Well someone needs to stand up for these amazing animals. And that someone is us. So if you haven't worked out what to give Mum for Mother's Day yet, then maybe this is it!

You can order the small tree gift for $40, but if you don't have enough dough saved up for that then here are some other gorgeous gift ideas that aren't so expensive, but will also help out the animals:

White Tea & Ginger Solid Perfume from Pure Gaisha $15 Perfect Potion Vanilla Bean Lip Balm $12 Wild Frangipani Natural Soy Candle $22 Christine's Ark (Paperback) $30

If you don't have a credit card, and can't borrow one, then don't panic -- just call our office pixies on a weekday on (03) 9329 6333 and they'll help you out. And while you're planning the perfect day-off for Mum, here are a few winning breakfast-in-bed recipes that are sure to get you out of cleaning your room for at least a week:

So now you know what I'm planning for my Mum this Mother's Day. What are your plans?

Woo looks great I just purchased a bonsai tree from there for my boyfriends mums birthday! They're a great company very Eco friendly, I went with them because I couldn't find any environmentally friendly florists but who would rather flowers that will die in a few days over a beautiful plant that will continue to give.

I love the tree. And the book. Definitely am now inspired to try and find my mum something eco-friendly and animal-cruelty free.
