An Eco Mother's Day Gift Guide
(under $50!)

Mother's Day is a day for honoring womanhood worldwide, and being exactly a month away I have thoughtfully curated a selection of eco gift ideas for the wonderful women in your life.

Everything on the list supports female entrepreneurs and/or social enterprises that give back to the community, so you know that your money is going towards a good cause. I would personally be happy to receive any of these gifts, and I hope whoever you have in mind will too! 

Happy shopping!

These 100% Ethiopian cotton tea towels are handwoven in Ethiopia and make a beautiful addition to any kitchen. Available in 6 different shades.  You may also like to shop their napkins and table runners.
SoloHope Trivet ($18.00)

These handcrafted trivets are perfect for serving her favorite warm dishes to family and friends during the holidays, and every purchase goes towards empowering women in Honduras. Can be purchased individually or in a set. You can shop the new Oasis collection for spring here.
This vibrant makeup bag is made by youths-at-risk in Burundi who were trained to create income for their families and themselves, and will hold all her daily essentials. Pick from their gorgeous range of designs here.


You may not be able to fly her to Hawaii for a vacation, but you can gift her a little tropical bliss with a trio of handmade soaps from KopaKauai. Pick from 4 available combinations or customize your own set.

This durable duck bag made from recycled cotton canvas is the perfect everyday tote for her this spring and summer. You can shop the rest of BAGGU's Spring Collection 2016 here.


If she enjoys journalling or taking notes, she will appreciate this premium lined notebook with a water-resistant book-clothed cover proudly made in America. Every purchase provides an hour of business school for women in emerging markets. 


This clever dual design is made in a studio in Pittsburgh, PA and functions as a ceramic vase and charging station in one. Pick your favorite color here, and you may also like to consider their equally delightful kitchen dock.

You can can gift the DIY-enthusiast a one-off beauty box from Handmade Beauty Box.  This Candle box will allow her to make 4 large soy candles in two flavours (although she can easily use her own essential oil blend). You may also like to consider the Cocoa Butter Bath Bomb or Mint Julep Lip Balm.
This necklace will add a cheery pop of color to her Spring wardrobe, with the beads handmade in Uganda from recycled paper. Available in two fun colors and you can shop the rest of the Spring '16 Collection here.

Gift her a culinary experience with a Try The World gift subscription. This bi-monthly box is curated by expert chefs and contains 7 to 8 delicacies from a new country. You can also purchase their Signature boxes or Discovery packages.

I have reviewed one of Pearlesque's box here and love founder Rochele's curation of natural products from all over the globe. This box features SKIN&CO, a luxury skincare brand from Italy, but you can also purchase boxes from Africa, Brazil and Indonesia here.
 


Made from a traditional block-printing process using non-toxic dyes, this lightweight scarf is made in Jaipur, India and half of their proceeds go towards girls' education. You can shop their other designs here.

This luxurious travel set was developed in Japan to emulate a traditional bathhouse experience and will provide a revitalizing, therapeutic effect for the body. Red Flower's products are 100% botanical with certified organic ingredients, and she may also like their Nature Radiant Set and Hamman Set.


Amaranthus does lifelike and long-lasting paper blooms crafted petal-by-petal from vibrant crepe paper. Choose from magnolias, peonies, ranunculus and the like, and for each bouquet purchased, they donate one to a woman battling a serious health battle.
