Want to give a Mother’s Day gift that also gives back to the world around us? We’ve looked high and low to find thoughtful and affordable gifts that mom will love. These gifts help heal kids in children’s hospitals, clothe the homeless, prevent sex trafficking, save endangered species and more! No matter what your mom loves, there’s bound to be a great gift for her in this round-up.

Miracle Beauty Box

Beauty boxes make perfect gifts because they promise all the surprise and high-end packaging that a thoughtful gift would offer, but you don’t have to curate it. We love the new Miracle Beauty Box recently released to fund Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals which retails for only $40! It features high-end brands like Kiehls, Voluspa, Claudalie and Creed, all while funding the life-saving work of children’s hospitals across North America.

Athleta

Does your mom spend all her time in chic workout wear? We love Athleta’s enduring commitment to create high-performance fitness apparel, while also ensuring the highest manufacturing standards along the way. Given their certified B-Corp status, you can rest assured that any item you find at Athleta was made in a dignified manner.

Bombas

On a tight budget? We’re obsessed with Bombas’ affordable and ethical socks that can cost as little as $10.50 and genuinely do live up to their claim “to feel better than anything else you’ve ever put on your feet.” For every item of clothing Bombas sells, they donate an item to someone in need at homeless shelters across the nation.

Blue Apron

If your mom thrives in the kitchen, send her a Blue Apron box. Each box features creative, healthy and extremely flavorful ingredients to cook diverse family meals. Even for the novice cook, the recipes prove very easy to replicate. Not only are Blue Apron ingredients incredibly delicious, they also are creating a better food eco-system.

Sudara

No one deserves to unwind in comfort quite like mom. She’ll be proud to relax in Sudara pajamas and loungewear, knowing that the brand offers tactical solutions to help prevent sex-trafficking for women in India. Additionally, Sudara is a certified B-Corp. We think the $49 Suja pants will be perfect for any mom in need of cozy lounge-wear.

Liberty United

If you’re committed to helping to get illegal guns off the street, one way to support this effort is by purchasing a gift from Liberty United. They repurpose illegal guns into beautiful statement jewelry and simultaneously use the funds raised to help protect some of America’s most vulnerable kids from gun violence.

koala

We spend 1/3 of our life in our bed, so why not give mom some incredibly comfortable sheets from koala that are also environmentally friendly? Hailing from Australia, koala’s bed linens are made from a eucalyptus fiber and will be comfortable in any season. A queen set retails for AUD $127.50 and helps support the preservation of animals through WWF.

Rose & Fitzgerald

Rose & Fitzgerald features stunning hand-made home goods and jewelry while also offering dignified jobs to artisans from across East Africa. Most Rose & Fitzgerald items come in at a luxury price point, but this set of Ankole Horn Serving Spoons sells for a reasonable $65 while also elevating any dining experience.

Nisolo

Who isn’t a sucker for a good pair of well-made shoes? We love Nisolo’s minimalistic yet fashion-forward shoes. Simple flats like the Isla Slide Sandal never go out of style and project an image of both ease and high-design. The leather slides retail for $88 and help support Nisolo’s on-going work to bring environmentally friendly and ethically sourced accessories to the masses.
