Hi there! Mother’s Day is just around the corner. Are you still looking for an affordable and meaningful gift to give an important mother in your life?
I’ve done some research and found five great companies and gorgeous, meaningful gift ideas that give back to women in different ways. Have a look at these companies, and gift ideas, here:
1. Brighten your mother’s day with Farmgirl Flowers.
Farmgirl Flowers’ bouquets are whimsical, fresh, and full of color.
This arrangement will include 25 season flowers in peach and orange tones. It will arrive in Farmgirl signature-style burlap sack sourced from Bay area coffee roasters. The sack can be recycled and is compostable.
In May, Farmgirl Flowers is donating $10 to Every Mother Counts, whose mission is to provide high-quality and respectful maternity care to all women in need. According to their website, over 300,000 women die each year from a lack of necessary education, support, and treatment during pregnancy and childbirth.

2. Prosperity Candle has affordable gift sets your mother will love.
This collection of three candles (at $60) brings multisensory feelings and thoughts of happiness to the lucky mom receiving it. Each candle – mountain, seaside, and garden – can whisk mom away to a happy place and time. It may encourage her to slow down, relax, and enjoy the moment; something she doesn’t often make time to do.
Each set comes with a photo of the female artisan who poured the candles enclosed. The artisans are all female refugees living in the United States. Through their work, they aim to build new lives for themselves and their families.
3. Customize a gift set with Uncommon Goods.
Uncommon Goods has an entire section on their website set aside for mother’s day gift ideas. Mother’s Day Brunch serves as the inspiration for this photo.
You can order this set of nesting bowls for $58.
The mimosa sugar cubes are so fun! You drop one into a glass of champagne and turn it into an instant mimosa or a bellini. The cost is $30.
The personalized family recipe board is the perfect gift. Instructions are provided. Scan them a copy of a recipe card in your mom’s handwriting, and they will etch it into a recipe board for you. The cost is $100.
Uncommon Goods partners with various non-profit organizations, including American Forests and International Rescue Committee, among others, through their own Better to Give program. With every purchase you make, they donate $1 to a partner of your choice ($2 for Perks members).
4. Love is Project has many affordable options to choose from.
These colorful, whimsical bracelets will bring joy to any mother in your life. They are listed for sale individually, or you can purchase this bundle for $135.
Female artisans residing in Lake Atitlán, Guatemala villages make these bracelets, with love, with the same looms they use to make their hair styling pieces. The colors woven into the bracelets represent the unique characteristics of the artisan’s village.
The artisans can invest 90% of their income back into their communities, funding their daughters’ educations and ensuring better access to quality healthcare. Support female artisans striving to improve their lives and the lives of their children by ordering these today.
