Having said that, you don't need to spend a fortune and you can find great products such as wooden toys that are extremely affordable."

yoyomama: Buzz Off Safe Insect Repellents - July 31, 2013
The wilds of buggy Manitoba are where we put this next bug spray to the test. Graydon Outdoor Spray ($17.99), like Mozi-Q, is a Canadian product, which relies on ingredients like soya bean oil, lemon, lime, and grapefruit juice and more for its bug fighting powers. While the recommended age range was for ages 6+, we’d feel comfortable using this on younger kids (though probably only on their clothes, not their skin), and you can even protect your dog with it (we did)! It’s lightly scented, not oily or greasy, and some of the therapeutic oils it contains also help screen out the sun’s rays, however the Manitoba weather was on the damp and cool side, so we can’t attest to its efficacy on that front.

Ethical Deal: Mother’s Day eco-Gift Guide for your Green Mom - May, 2013
You’re lucky because you have a lot of great options! Try creating a personalized outdoor plant container filled with plants that you have specifically picked out. I highly suggest things you can cook with: basil, lavender, thyme, chocolate mint for something special and anything else you know she would love to have at hand. Go the extra mile and place all the supplies in your planter as a double-duty gift basket. Hide it on her deck the night before and have her wake up to it! What a lovely surprise, especially if you all do it together; I suggest after brunch. If you have more of an indoor planter there are these amazing little felt pods that are also great for the mom with little kids running around because these will never really break!
