Gifts That Give Back For Mom

With the arrival of springtime comes Mother’s Day just around the corner! It’s the perfect time to celebrate the wonderful mother figures in our lives who love and care for us without reservation. Each gift below is thoughtfully designed and crafted with care, giving back to not only your mum—but also to communities both local and global. This list was curated with self care in mind, for the mama who deserves a little time to herself. 

As a thoughtful touch, pick up some sparkly and sustainable jewelry or fair-trade chocolate for her to indulge in, too.
