After the year we just had, Mom deserves something nice. So this year, let's save mom from the usual: chocolates, flowers and a card. Give her something that's unlike anything else, because let's face it: Mom has some pretty unique superpowers. Whether she can bake the perfect cake for your birthday, could always brush your hair to make that cow lick lay just right or throw anything on from her closet and look like she stepped out of the pages of Vogue. This is what makes her your Mom and there is no one else like her.
So, if you're sick of giving mom the same 'ol gifts, then check out this list of 7 small businesses that have upped Mother's Day gifting to a whole new level.
1. Sustainable Demin
Who knew this was such a thing? I guarantee your eco-friendly mom did! She's been sourcing her clothing from responsible, environmentally friendly retailers for years! She rarely purchases new clothing, but when she does, it is because she needs it. This mom wants to make sure she isn’t contributing to the destruction of our planet by purchasing “fast fashion”. She's all about eco-friendly production, low-impact dying, upcycling natural materials and purchasing clothing items second-hand. That is why this mom would be so proud that she raised a child that totally gets her values and purchased her a gift that supports the greater good. Choose the perfect pair of sustainable denim from the carefully curated collection at Sustainable Threads Boutique and support a business that believes that being ethically made and sustainable is the new "little black dress".
2. Luxury, Handmade Swimwear
So, I know you are thinking, WHAT?! Purchase a swimsuit for my Mom?? Hear me out. Your Mom was a woman waaayy before she was ever a mom. And women love to feel confident about themselves on the inside and out. Purchasing a suit from Hella Tl Swimwear will not only make her look fabulous, she knows that this swimsuit is made of quality materials including organic ink and your purchase was handmade with love and care by a real person and not a fast fashion retail chain.
3. All Natural Goat Milk Body Products
Your crunchy, hippie, nature lovin' Mom will love this gift! All natural and fresh from a farm in North Texas, grab mom a relaxing goat milk bath bomb, skin soothing goat milk balm, or ultra moisturizing goat milk bar soap this Mother’s Day. She'll love that you supported a small, family farm and that your gift was handmade in small batches. Your nature lovin' mom will appreciate how Olivia Tye Soap uses only natural ingredients and essential oils to turn her bathroom into an aromatherapy spa, that she can enjoy time and time again.
4. Ocean Inspired Decor and Jewelry
If mom's happy place is sitting by the ocean with her toes in the sand, then Seaside Serenity Creations has got you covered! Their unique, handmade art and jewelry will give her the peace and tranquility that comes only from the beach. Gorgeous pieces made from real shark's teeth, seashells, and driftwood will remind your mom the feeling she gets each time she visits the ocean. Hand crafted designs and one-of-a-kind pieces, that show your mom just how unique she is to you.
5. Luxurious, Fashion-Forward Handbags
Perhaps your mom is a stickler for quality? Does she love attending dinner parties, getting beautifully dressed up, and carefully selecting curated accessories from her trips around the world? Does everyone "oooo and ahhh" at her perfect taste? Then she'd be so proud to carry a Noha Nadler handbag. They're designed for women who are looking for beautiful, thoughtfully designed handbags that will not only look good, but feel incredible. The quality craftsmanship and sustainable materials make this a bag she'll use for a lifetime.
For the New Mom and the Mom-To-Be
This Mother’s Day give the new mom in your life the gift of easy! The Lay and Play Adventure Mat is the first baby play mat and activity gym that quickly folds up and fits into a small sack that can go in your diaper bag, backpack or large purse. It is perfect for the adventurous family who likes to get out in nature or the minimalist mom who prefers to travel light.
