Mama's Day Gift Guide
Mother’s Day is coming up on May 12, which means it’s that time of year again: the search for that perfect gift for mom. Sure, you could have flowers delivered, but what about a truly unique gift that lasts longer than a week? Thankfully, ME to WE has you covered with a collection of gorgeous handmade gifts that empower moms around the world: gifts you’ll feel good about giving, and mom will feel good about receiving. So whether you’re shopping for your mom, an amazing mom you know or another special person in your life, check out our top-eight Mother’s Day gift ideas.
Why she’ll love it: Each of these super-sweet bracelets gives back to the mama in Kenya who made it, giving health care so she can provide the very best for her family. Plus, each one comes on a tag with a Mother’s Day message—it’s like a card and a gift in one! Choose from a classic Rafiki Bracelet, a three-wrap Rafiki Bracelet with tassel and charm accents or a Bracelet Set you can share with mom.
Why she’ll love it: These gorgeous new bracelets were co-created with style icon Aimee Song, creator of Song of Style, and are all about uniting you with the journeys of women around the world. Every piece gives financial opportunity to a woman in one of our partner communities. Choose from three meaningful bracelets: the Journey Bracelet, Connection Bracelet and Journey Two-Wrap Rafiki Bracelet.
Why she’ll love it: It’s a gift packed with extra meaning, made with ethically sourced semiprecious stones that each have their own symbolism (creativity, love or growth). Wear it multiple ways—as a bracelet, necklace or anklet and more. Whether you’re celebrating an aunt, a grandma, an older sister, a coach or anyone in between, this gift is a lovely way to show how much you care. Shop this bracelet in Blue Moon Quartz, Amazonite or Rose Quartz.
Why she’ll love it: Her cupboard looks like she’s preparing for a chocolate apocalypse—now, she can indulge guilt-free with delicious, award-winning chocolate that empowers farmers to earn a fair wage and helps kids in local communities access education. With this gift-ready pack of three, mom can try our three classic flavors—milk, dark and dark with goldenberries. Shop Fairtrade chocolate.
Why she’ll love it: She can match with you and show the world that you’re like the real-life Gilmore Girls. Each necklace set has coordinating charms to represent that unbreakable mom-daughter bond you share. Because whether you live close by or far apart, she’ll always be the star to your sky and the key to your heart. Pick one of three unique designs: Key and Lock, Hearts or Star and Night Sky.
Why she’ll love it: Each bracelet, made with semiprecious stones, gives a goat to a woman in honor of Mama Toti, who’s known as a ME to WE legend—through her beading work, she realized her dream of starting a thriving goat farm. A bonus? Even if mom is far away and your celebration is via video chat, this bracelet comes in a ready-to-gift box you can send right to her. Shop the Mama Toti Rafiki in Black Jasper , Purple Chalcedony or Blue Moon Quartz.
Why she’ll love it: It’s handwoven on the coast of Kenya using dried palm leaves with white beaded details—the perfect accessory for her weekly grocery shop, or to store her gear for yoga in the park. Shop the basket.
Why she’ll love it: A donation in her name will change another mom’s life, helping her keep her kids healthy, plus instead of collecting water she’ll gain valuable time, which she can use for things like starting a business. Donate to WE Charity.
