Mother’s Day is a great way to remind your mom of how much you love her and thank her for all that she does for you! Sometimes it can be tricky to figure out what she wants, but this list will break it down into a few major categories: cards, beauty, home/accessories, wellness, and charitable contributions. All of the brands are women-owned and most are small businesses. Supporting women and small business-owners is something that I love to do, and it’s super fitting for Mother’s Day!

Cards: I chose four different cards to encompass a range of different styles, and who doesn’t love getting a handwritten card?

People I’ve Loved Mom Jeans card– Illustrated by Carissa Potter; People I’ve Loved is a completely women run group of artists.

Laura Supnik Bear Greeting Card– Illustrated and Created by Laura Supnik

Beauty: Not every mom is into makeup, so I tried to include a range of products including skincare, haircare and makeup.

Herbivore Botanicals Coco Rose Lip Conditioner– Founders: Julia Wills and Alexander Kummerow

Captain Blankenship Ray of Light Sea Salt Sun Spray– Founder: Jana Blankenship

Home/Accessories: Although everyone has a different style, I chose classic pieces that can easily be customized or have multiple options to tailor the gift to your mom specifically.

Baggu Reusable Bag in Peach 90s Stripe– Founder: Emily Sugihara

P.F. Candle Co. Laundry Day Soy Candle– Founders: Kristen Pumphrey and Thomas Neuberger

Wellness: Moms can easily get caught up with all of the work they do as a parent, these gifts are perfect for anyone who needs a little more self-care in their life.

The Universe Has Your Back: 52 Card Deck– Creator: Gabrielle Bernstein

Cap Beauty Daily Rose Quartz Facial Roller– Founders: Kerrilynn Pamer and Cindy DiPrima Morisse

Charitable Contributions: If your mom isn’t that into gifts or doesn’t want anything, making a charitable contribution on her behalf is the perfect way to show her that you’re thinking of her! All of the charities below are run by women, for women which is something that I think it perfect for Mother’s Day. 

Planned Parenthood– President: Cecile Richards

She Should Run– Founder and CEO: Erin Loos Cutraro

Malala Fund– Founder: Malala Yousafzai

The Homeless People– Founders: Oli and Josie
