When it comes to gifting the mamas in your life, it’s nearly impossible. Picking out the perfect gift comes with so much pressure and now with everything at the click of a finger, it’s hard to imagine they don’t have everything they already need! But tis the season for giving (and giving back) and what better way to say thank you, I love you, I appreciate you, than with a small token wrapped and sealed with a pretty bow. To help you out a bit, we gathered our top 14 gifts that any mama would be happy to see under the tree.
Why not give back while gifting this holiday season? inLieu is an app that is changing the way we give and making it easy for users to make donations in lieu of purchasing a material gift. At the same time, inLieu makes donating fast, easy and social (hopefully encouraging and inspiring your friends to do the same). Using inLieu makes every gift you give meaningful. inLieu provides a live social feed of every transaction that can be liked and shared with friends. It’s never been easier to support your friends by supporting their cause. Give them a gift that makes a difference…inLieu them instead.

When it comes to gifting beauty products, I make an effort to only gift items that are safe, natural and contain the purest ingredients. Meet Conscious Goods! It’s an all-natural home and body product line made with only natural ingredients and with environmental considerations in mind. The mom and daughter duo are passionate about making products that nurture families and the planet we all share. Two of my favorite products are the Everything Oil and the Healing Waters Bath Bomb. Use the Roll on Relief for everything- pain and inflammation, headaches, stomach aches, nausea, hangovers, earaches, and even growing pains. Use the bath bomb when feeling under the weather. Perfect for stocking stuffers and a gentle self-care reminder which every mama needs!

They design swimwear that is modern, stylish, and functional for you and your beach babes because they think you deserve it.

When I heard A Little Bundle and Anvil & Aura were collaborating on a piece of jewelry, I knew I had to have it! Made in Austin, Texas, choose 1, 2, 3, or 4 14K gold hearts to represent your babies, fur babies, siblings, however you see fit. The best part? You can add hearts later as your family grows. Feeling extra extra? Customize your necklace by adding a diamond inside each heart. Order here.

Handwoven with all natural baby alpaca, you’ll want to stay wrapped up in this all winter long. Each throw is handwoven using a traditional hand loom and takes about three days to complete. All made with 100% natural baby alpaca ethically sourced from the mountain ranges of Peru and made in a fair-trade environment.

ArtStartArt (ASA) is an online marketplace for university-level artists to submit and sell their art. Every month ASA introduces a new collection of art, hand selected by a knowledgeable curator. The art is only available for 1 month so it’s kind of like an art flash sale! Every piece of art purchased donates 5% of that sale back to that student’s fine arts program.

We fell in love with Ellen Mote Jewelry for the modern silhouettes and clean lines that make up her jewelry line. A recent transplant to Waco, Texas from Portland, OR, Ellen rediscovered her love of creating handmade jewelry using traditional metalsmithing techniques and sustainable materials. Each piece is made by hand in Waco, Texas.
