Make your Mother’s Day (competition now closed)
Posted On April 20th, 2015


(The competition is now closed – congratulations to our winners Nicola Metcalfe, Michelle Gaskell and Heather Dillon.)

We want you to be able to make your mum’s day this year by helping you find great ideas for a ‘greener’ Mother’s Day.

If you’re used to heading to the mall for gifts or jumping online to order flowers, why not give her something home made instead? Maybe go eco-friendly and choose something upcycled. Why not something sewn, knitted, baked, painted or planted? Pinterest and the internet are great sources of pictures that could inspire your choice, otherwise you could upload your own image of what you or a clever friend has made.

Grab a pic – or a few – of the home made gifts you’d love to give or that you find inspiring, and we’ll judge the three most creative entries to win a luxurious ecostore pamper pack each. You might also want to share your board with your mum.

If you’re stuck for ideas, visit our Mother’s Day board.

How it works:

  1. Follow ecostore on Pinterest if you aren’t already (and sign up for a Pinterest account if you don’t already use it.)
  2. Get at least one image of a home made gift. Take or find the pictures that inspire you and pin or upload the ones you like.
  3. Create a Pinterest board called Making Mother’s Day
    Add your pins to the board and tag them with #ecostoremothersday
  4. Then fill out the form below to enter the competition by 9 May. (Please note you need to be a New Zealand resident to enter the competition)

It’s that simple. But do remember to have a look at the full Ts and Cs below the form.
