5 mothers day gift ideas that give back to causes or charity

5 Mother’s Day Gifts That Give Back: A Curated Guide for Meaningful Gifts

We love all the moms in our lives and Mother’s Day is the perfect time to honor that love with a special and meaningful present. But no matter how much we want to give mom the warm fuzzies, sometimes it’s hard to find the right gift. 

If you’re feeling a little stumped this year, no worries. I did the legwork and put together a Mother’s Day gift roundup filled with unique gifts from small mission-based brands and companies that give back. Not only do you get to give Mom a fabulous gift, but you can also support gifts that make the world a better place. 

Ready to find the perfect Mother’s Day gift that she’ll love? Here are my favorites:

Awareness Jewelry by Revive Jewelry

Medical diagnoses are life-altering, but we can take back our power and create positive change by raising awareness and money toward research for cures. Give the gift of hope, strength, and awareness this Mother’s Day with a unique handcrafted piece of cause-based jewelry available in your choice of one of our nineteen supported causes. 


forever tied awareness bracelets for cancer, illness and disease that give back to charity

The forever tied awareness bracelet is a practical, easy-to-wear style for moms with young children. This everyday jewelry piece stays on whether you’re taking your kid to soccer practice or giving a baby a bath. It can stand up to grocery shopping and getting kids in and out of the car without getting in the way. Moms on the go can add this cute, colorful, fun piece to jazz up a leggings and a tee playdate look then leave it on for a dinner date.


awareness rings for cancer, illness and disease that give back to charity

The mom with a baby or toddler who likes fidget toys will appreciate our durable and low maintenance awareness rings. Unlike dangly necklaces or drop earrings, there’s nothing for their little one to grab and pull on. They can play with the ring while you wear it without breaking it, making this a fantastic jewelry gift for new moms who want to accessorize. 

The double ring is one of our favorite ring designs for pregnant ladies and new moms because although you do choose a ring size, the ring can be adjusted slightly while she’s wearing it. That means a perfect fit no matter what.


infertility awareness jewelry that gives back

Not all mothers get to hold their babies and get cards and gifts from their kids on Mother’s Day. Mothers who are still walking through the long, hard journey of infertility can use extra love, support, and acknowledgement on this rough day. Let her know you see her and are there for her with a gift from our infertility jewelry collection. 

With each purchase, Revive Jewelry gives back 10% to charities working to help treat patients, spread awareness & find a cure for that specific illness.

Make sure your gift arrives in time for Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is May 8th this year, so don’t wait too long to do your shopping. Order your Revive Jewelry by May 1st for pre-Mother’s Day delivery.

More Ideas for Mom

Here's 4 other gifts you can purchase that help causes like animal rescue, global employment, the homeless and giving women access to personal hygiene products. Any mom would be happy to receive a gift that gives back to these causes!

1. Heart Shaped Bowl and Spoons by Acacia Creations



A small family of Philippine artisans hand carves each of these one-of-a-kind heart shaped bowls. Made from sustainably harvested acacia wood that has been kiln dried, your bowl is crafted to last and is sure to delight. 

The food-safe bowl is perfect for holding dips or party snacks, though it looks just as beautiful displayed on a shelf or dresser. I'm gonna use mine to hold rings and hair pins on my dresser! Add a pair of coordinating heart shaped wooden spoons to complete the set, or view other Acacia Creations gift ideas on Instagram.

Each Acacia Creations purchase helps support the ongoing livelihoods of global artisans.

2. Handmade Candle Flight by Cozies That Give

Best of all, these are more than just another set of candles. The candle flights from Cozies That Give Back are handmade by women in the Made by DWC program in Los Angeles. 

Each DWC product purchase helps empower women in Los Angeles to break the cycle of chronic homelessness through employment.
