When I shop for gifts for holidays and birthdays, I try to support companies that do good in some way, especially those that give money or products to charity. It used to be a challenge to find such companies, but now many popular brands have programs that give back. This Mother’s Day will be my first one as a mother myself, so let’s be honest: I wouldn’t mind receiving any of these gifts!
My Mother’s Day picks:
Floral TOMS wedges**:
Mom can look gorgeous in these floral wedges all spring and summer long, and she can feel good about providing someone in need with a pair of shoes.
Coral Washed Twill Women’s Platform Espadrilles**: For those who want more comfortable, everyday shoes, these TOMS espadrilles are perfect, and they come in blue and gray as well. Plus. these have a vegan microfiber liner!
For every pair of Diff sunglasses sold, a pair of reading glasses is given to a child in need. I like these Barry Black/White Frames with polarized lenses. The mom friend in your life will love these this summer.
Little Market North Shore Overnight Bag:
Little Market has a variety of adorable overnight bags for the traveling momma. You can also find makeup bags and trunks. Little Market says: “Every purchase empowers artisans in Guatemala working with Maya Traditions.” Frankly, every item on the Little Market website is adorable. You also get a free luggage tag with overnight bag purchase (at least at the time this was written).
Where are your favorite places to shop? What would you add to this list?
Note: It’s up to you to do research on which companies are worth giving to and how much good they actually do. These are just my picks. Happy shopping!
