Don’t be shocked, but Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 14th! Yes, I know – it always sneaks up on me too. Whatever you do, don’t wait until the last moment and then make a rush decision on what to get the fabulous mother in your life. She deserves more than that. Whether the mothers in your life are your own mom, sister, aunt or friend – give them a gift that shows you care about them and others. Ethical gifts are perfect for people who care about fair trade, sustainability, quality artisan craftsmanship, and helping people around the globe. I always say it’s shopping you can feel good about!
Consider these Mother’s Day gift ideas:
Picture frames – memories are meant to last, and so will mom’s pictures in these handcrafted rustic wood frames from Indian artisans. Ethically sourced from bone and wood arrow points, these frames include an easel-style stand as well as a hook for hanging on a wall.
Ecofriendly jewelry – Fair Trade Fusion has a vast jewelry collection all fair trade and ethically made. What’s your mom’s style? We have brass, silver, alpaca, abalone, and wood jewelry in a wide variety of styles and colors. Does she love necklaces or a pair of fun earrings? Whatever she loves, there is sure to be a jewelry piece that matches her personality.
Purses and handbags – fair trade purses, clutches, coin purses and handbags would be a certain hit with mom. Can a woman ever really have too many purses? You won’t find our purses in your average department store. If you can believe it, we have purses recycled out of seatbelts, leather clothing labels, and even soda pull tops!
Felt birds and birdhouses – if the mom you love is a bird lover, consider getting her a felt wool bird or birdhouse. These items are made with sustainable wool which is known for quickly drying out in wet weather – prefect to keep her feathered friends dry. They come in some of the cutest styles you’ve ever seen. Some of the designs include a pixie house, country barn, retro camper, numerous flowers, dragonflies, butterflies, and even a flying pig. Yes, that’s right – pigs really can fly!
Handcrafted Mexican pottery – our collection of Mexican pottery features plates, bowls, cups, appetizer sets, sugar bowls, and creamers. Microwave and dishwasher safe, as well as lead free, each piece is handmade and individually painted.
Metal wall art – our metal wall art is made in Haiti where artisans use recycled steel oil drums to make these one-of-a-kind art pieces. Some of the styles include tree of lifes, geckos, turtles, dragonflies, guitars, quotes, and sun faces. The artwork can be hung inside or outside and is hand painted, hand cut, and embossed. A personalized signature is put on the back of each metal art piece.
