No matter your mom’s personality, this Mother’s Day gift guide will help you find the right gift for your sweet mom!
For the Sentimental Mom
Show your mom that your love for her is never ending with our Infinity necklace. Not only is it absolutely darling, but this necklace is also handcrafted by a young woman rescued from sex trafficking.

A computer sleeve from Shopping for a Change is the perfect gift to keep your mom’s devices safe. Best of all, it is made of recycled materials originally used in the fishing and construction industries. Crafted in Cambodia, the proceeds provide sustainable incomes to workers and fund community programs.
For the Eco-Friendly Mom
One of the best ways to relax is to take a bath with a refreshing bath bomb. With Lush’s seasonal Mom Bath Bomb, your mom will enjoy the aroma of lemon mixed with sweet orange and hints of rose as she soaks in the tub. The knowledge that all the products at Lush are vegan and never tested on animals will give your mom peace of mind. Plus, every hard-working mom deserves to kick back and relax!
For the Coffee and Tea Loving Mom
Remind your mom how much you love her every time she takes a sip out of her new favorite PURPOSE mug. The proceeds of this benefit survivors of sex trafficking in the United States and India.
