Mother’s Day gifts that give back, because they save lives.

Gifts that Give Back: Shaya Necklace from Given Goods

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.

    The bath salts sound like a great idea. A little relaxation after the kids are in bed.
