This Spring, Give The Gift Of Goodness With These 20 Fair-Trade & Ethical Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

Fair-Trade & Ethical Mother’s Day Gift Ideas With a Personal Touch

All gifts should tell a story. And beyond their features and material worth, gifts should be, first and foremost, a reflection of both the giver and the receiver and a thoughtful expression of the connection they share.

Not once I made the mistake to think of gifts as dutiful acts or mere obligations. But I was wrong. Because from small to big and from free to priceless, all gifts are an opportunity to experience the heart-expanding feeling of giving without measure.
And what better time to experience it than Mother’s Day, this collective celebration of the wonderful women who are the embodiment of giving.

The guide below is a collection of fair-trade and ethical gifts for mothers, mentors, and unconditional givers. Each of them is created with passion and care by artisans all over the world, and embodies values such as fairness, strength, kindness and generosity.

As I myself grow older and wiser, I’ve come to understand that a gift’s true value is not what is written on its price tag. It’s the emotion it awakes, the intention it was chosen with, the story behind it. And last, but not least, a gift’s true value is the power of giving.

Happy Giving!

Love,
