Mother's Day chocolatesI love the idea of a Mother’s Day gift this year that gives back in some way, and I especially like the idea of giving back to the March of Dimes, a cause near and dear to our hearts since the recent loss of a prominent blogging mom’s little girl to complications related to her premature birth. Red Envelope is on the ball this year with that very thing, offering 10% of the purchase price of any item to the March of Dimes when you order through this link.

There’s an entire selection of Mother’s Day gifts that we’d love to both give and get — my own picks include a year of seeds in beautiful colorful pots, the personalized silver box which my own Grandmother owns, and the “ten reasons I love mom” truffles (shown, left) which is a brilliant stroke of marketing no matter how they actually taste.

If it’s jewelry you’re after, there’s a sweet sterling Mother’s Love pendant that exclusively supports the March of Dimes with part of the purchase price no matter what link you click through or when you buy it. But we suggest buying it now. When is there ever a better time than now? –Liz
