Mother's Day Gifts that Give Back

May 10, 2015

Happy Mother's Day! Are you looking for a last minute gift? These won't be here on time but I guarantee they'll be worth the wait. Four mother's day gifts that give back:

Stella and Dot
All net proceeds of the beautiful Enlighten bracelet ($39) support Every Mother Counts, Christy Turlington's nonprofit organization "making pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother." The pretty gold and poppy colors make the embossed "Mother Daughter Sister" wording in three languages stand out. You can feel good giving this gift knowing your dollars help Every Mother Counts support international maternal health.

Rebecca Minkoff
The designer behind one of the world's most perfect handbags has also teamed up with Every Mother Counts. Rebecca Minkoff's Bowie Baby Bag was designed in conjunction with Christy Turlington. Named after Minkoff's daughter Bowie Lou, the Bowie Baby Bag features a changing pad and tons of pockets and zippers. Check out photos from the bag launch here. 

Enrou is a small company based in Los Angeles that encourages you to make empowered choices in your purchasing. Each brand in the marketplace is hand-selected to create jobs, education, mentoring and more. With a variety of products like coffee, jewelry, and body oil, you're sure to find something for mom. I'd suggest starting with the Batik Makeup Bag created by Clementine, a Rwandan woman who was sent to an orphanage at age 10 and is now working to become a social worker. Your support helps Clementine support her son, what a lovely way to honor mother's day. ($20)

If you're looking for a gift set, you can't go wrong with the Unity Necklace and Rooted Lip Butter Set from Purpose. Purpose helps young women in Mumbai escape from modern-day slavery, and teaches them artisan jewelry skills as well as providing education, job training and financial stability. This gift set includes the Unity Necklace and two delicious lip butters ($45).

Lastly, I'd like to wish a very happy mother's day to my mom and MIL. I am so proud to have these two strong, intelligent, beautiful women in my life. Love you both.

Who are the women you want to celebrate?
