Ethical Gifts For Mother’s Day 2024 She’ll Love

These unique ethical gifts for Mother’s Day are guaranteed to make your Maker smile!

By Jessica Dickson

You might think Mother’s Day is a ‘Hallmark holiday.’ You know, something invented by the greeting card industry to rake in some cash. But – that’s not the case!

This is actually a holiday that even the ancient Greeks and Romans celebrated. Well, kind of. They actually paid homage to Rhea and Cybele, respectfully, as the Mothers of the Gods. Eventually, these concepts of commemorating of motherhood passed on to later generations and eras.

For example? In Medieval times, Mothering Sunday was a day that servants were given off just so that they could visit their moms, which would have been difficult then. Now it’s a permanent fixture of the calendar, celebrated in over 100 countries.

Personally, I love this day! It’s a good time to truly say ‘thanks’ to the woman who helped raise you into the fantastic human you are today. She’s endured every tantrum and wiped every tear. It’s time to give back to that special woman who gave consistently and unconditionally, right?

There are plenty of ways to say, ‘hey mom, I love you!’ Namely with your words. Of course, you could also make her breakfast in bed, or bake a cake. Or just gift her with something she’ll love!

Whether it’s clothing, chocolates, flowers or something else that’s special, make sure it’s ethical and sustainable.

Not sure where to begin looking? I’ve found some gorgeous ethical gifts for Mother’s Day that are guaranteed to make her smile.

1. Meaningful ethical jewelry

Mothers are precious. So, treat your mom to something that’s every bit as special as she is!

Pyrrha has a variety of stunning ethical jewelry that’s perfect for Mother’s Day. In particular, their Talisman necklaces really stand out.

Each Talisman comes with an inspiring meaning card. My choice would be the ‘Seasons Change and So Do I’. It serves as a beautiful reminder to not only expect, but also welcome, the inevitability of change in our lives.

All Pyrrha’s jewelry is handcrafted in Vancouver from start to finish, using only recycled metals. Their mission is to make meaningful and sustainable jewelry, infused with thoughtful storytelling. And the Talisman necklaces encompass all this perfectly!
