Mother's Day gift ideas: GIVE natural perfumesWhen we first discovered AHA Life a while back, it was a bit like a high end flash sale site with a new, extremely well-curated item popping up every 24 hours. Unfortunately, the prices were a bit in the “well, a girl can dream, right?” category. Now the site has evolved with more items that are available for longer, and many at prices more of us can afford.

Of course this makes it more fun to browse around for great gift picks, and I was happy to find quite a few gifts that give back for a caring mama in your life–all under $50.

I was immediately captivated by the GIVE natural perfume oils which help support one of my favorite orgs, Women for Women International. For the same charity, there’s also a very pretty–and affordable–sandalwood and amethyst bracelet.

Mother's Day gift ideas: Whistle for Peace pendantAnd for a more activist mom, like mine, I’m really intrigued by the Whistle for Peace necklaces
that start at $44, and benefit Falling Whistles which was developed to help rehabilitate
women and children impacted by the war in The Congo. I’d imagine it
would be quite the conversation starter.

The one thing: You do
have to register for the site to be able to purchase. But at least
you’ll get $10 off your next purchase. So I suppose the gift will give
back to you too. –Liz
