We’re getting down to the wire on Mother’s Day gifts, and if you’re looking for last minute inspiration, we always love gifts that give back. When you buy a beautiful, artisan gift from Given Goods this Mother’s Day, like the gorgeous Shaya necklace at top, they’ll donate a birthing kit to a mother in a region without access to proper medical care. This could literally save the life of a mother this Mother’s Day, and that’s a pretty amazing gift to give.

But what’s I love about this company is not just the giving back that they do; their product selection is gorgeous and any of their items would make a perfect gift for mom (or just-because gift for yourself) any time.  In fact, you might recognize some of these small companies which have been featured here before.
