5-03-2015 Six Fun, Unique Solar-Powered Gifts for Mom
Mother’s Day is only a week away. Have you decided what you’re getting Mom? If you have, that’s great! You’re ahead of the game. Give yourself a pat on the back.
If you haven’t found the perfect gift for her, don’t worry. There’s still plenty of time, and GreenLancer has put together the perfect list of solar-powered gifts for Mom.
Show Mom you want her to stay connected wherever she goes with a solar-powered charger like the Solio Classic2. One factor to consider before buying a charger is its surface area. The larger the solar panel on the charger, the faster it will convert light to energy.
Another thing to think about is the watt rating. The higher the watts, the faster the battery will charge the phone. Many quality solar-powered chargers are available for under $100, so you don’t have to worry about breaking the bank.
Solar-Powered Water Fountain
If your mom loves spending time outside, or if she’s got a lovely garden, go for a solar-powered water fountain. These come in many shapes, sizes, and colors. Some are only a foot tall while other are three or four. If your mom loves cascade fountains, you can get her something like the Kiwi Solar Cascade from Smart Solar.
They also range in price from about $60 to $400, so figure out your budget and pick a fountain that’s in it. One of the best things about solar-powered water fountains: no cords to trip over.
Solar Powered Lamp
Pendant lamps are a soft, elegant way to add lighting to a home, whether outside or inside. If Mom has been lamenting her old lamps or thinking of replacing the patio lighting, help her out.
Buy her a solar-powered one. She can help the environment while adding a nice touch to her home. Lamps usually charge in about 9-12 hours, but she’ll be able to enjoy the lamp’s light for a full 12 hours.
Solar-Stirred Sun Tea Jar
Sometimes, moms just want to sip some cool, refreshing iced tea. With the solar-stirred Sun Tea jar, your mom can enjoy solar brewed Sun Tea in half the time it takes to brew regular tea. The jar has a solar-powered paddle that stirs the tea bag constantly to encourage a faster brew.
This is an especially useful gift if your mom enjoys picnics or days at the beach. All she has to do it take it with her, and she can have freshly brewed tea anywhere.
Solarmio Kindle Cover
Reading is a great way for Mom to relax. Make sure she can always read her Kindle by getting her the Solarmio Kindle Cover. The cover has solar panels on front that charge in the sun.
The energy they create can either be used to power the cover’s built-in LED reading light or charge the Kindle. The cover requires only eight hours of direct sunlight for a full charge.
Color-Changing Nail Polish and Clothing
While not exactly solar-powered in the strictest sense, Del Sol’s color-changing nail polish and clothing is pretty cool. They’re great gifts for outdoorsy moms. They’ll get a kick out of the bright colors that “magically” appear on their formerly white clothes.
They’ll also feel like they’re getting two nail polishes for the price of one. Let your mom have some fun in the sun this Mother’s Day and get her some color-changing gear.
Make This Mother’s Day Unforgettable
A solar-powered Mother’s Day gift is unique, just like your mom. Let her know you’re thinking of her this Mother’s Day with a gift that’s sure to leave her in awe. Also, don’t forget to give your mom a big hug and tell her, “I love you, Mom.” Moms love that stuff.
