Treat Your Mum This Mother's Day Using Our Kind Guide!
It's Mother's Day on Sunday and with International Women's Day just behind us, there is no better reason to give Mum a double treat this weekend.
Below I've complied a list of perfect gifts for Mum, all from companies pursuing sustainability initiatives whether socially or environmentally. So in some way or another, your purchase contributes to a good cause and has the added benefit of making Mum happy - a win-win for everybody!
If She's a... Beauty Goddess
Farmacy Beauty has been one of our beauty favourites for a while. By working with local farmers, Farmacy ensure that their key ingredients remain top notch and are cultivated in a way that is good for the planet. Our favourite products are from their Honey Collection made using honey from their very happy and healthy VIBs (very important bees). Inspired by nature, Farmarcy are always on the look out for new natural ingredients to fuse into their products.
Kiehl’s always delivers when it comes to skin care and can definitely satisfy all of Mum’s skin needs, whether she is looking for hydration or just a deep cleanse, the Kiehl’s range will definitely have something for her. Not only are Kiehl’s working on their environmental sustainability by reducing their water consumption and carbon emissions, they also ensure fair conditions and wages for workers across their supply chain. Plus with Kiehl’s offering a free product for every 10 bottles that you return to them how can you resist!
If She’s a… Jewellery Buff
We recently discovered Scandinavian brand Norrfolks and we are definitely better off for it! Specialising in minimalistic styles, Norrfolk believe that fine jewellery should be affordable and sustainable without compromising on quality. Norrfolks source the finest materials in a responsible way and only work with manufacturers that commit to ethical working conditions. For Mums who love a little bit of sparkle, Norrfolks will provide you with the perfect gift!
If She’s a… Fashion Diva
There are so many fashion brands that we are absolutely in love with and if you follow the blog on Instagram you probably already have a good idea of what some of our most loved brands are! Every Mum as their own independent style so rather than torturing you and ourselves by trying to narrow the choices down, here are some of our favourite fashion brands that Mum is sure to love!
With classic, timeless pieces Irwin Garden is a great place to pick up a gift for Mum that she’ll treasure in her closet.
Whether you're trying to find the perfect shoes or bag for Mum, Brother Vellies is a great one-stop shop! With each item hand-made in South Africa, Ethiopia, Kenya and Morocco each piece not only supports communities in those regions but also maintains the sprit of their African heritage and culture.
By purchasing the majority of their fair trade products from marginalised producer groups in the developing world, People Tree prioritise the pursuit of economic independence for everyone in their supply chain to provide local communities with more control over their environment and independence.
If She’s a… Foodie
Sometimes there is nothing better than treating Mum to a good, tasty meal. One of our favourite places is the Clerkenwell Kitchen. Founders, Emma and Laura focus on using organic ingredients, free range meat to create tasty meals that are both proudly British and seasonal.
If She’s a… Travel Fan
