9 Charitable Mother’s Day Gifts That Give Back

As Mother's Day fast approaches, the pressure is on to find the right gift for your parent, guardian, or loved one. But this year's day dedicated to celebrating moms will look a bit different than in the past. Amid the coronavirus pandemic, the New Normal has already caused a shift in our day-to-day lives: many are unable to celebrate holidays with loved ones, and others are displaced from their homes waiting out lockdown measures in place throughout the world.

But Mother's Day celebrations can commence even in a pandemic — and can be an unexpected means to give back, too. This year, as you shop for the perfect gift for Mom, consider brands that are giving back, supporting charities, and even supporting other moms, parents, or guardians in need. Ahead, we've rounded up nine items that will make Mother's Day special and still help causes you care most about.

Mama Ring From Olivela


Olivela gives proceeds to a number of charities, including Save the Children — a non-profit that is committed to helping children with the most needs during the coronavirus pandemic. This includes everything from meals to books and other learning resources. A purchase of this ring provides seven essential supplies to families in need.

Brightland Olive Oil The Artist Capsule


For the mom who is already obsessed with cooking (or maybe just starting to experiment in the kitchen) the collection of California-farmed lemon, chili, and basil-infused bottles is the ideal present. Brightland is also matching each gift with a 50-meal donation to Feeding America.

Jamie Beck Artwork


Artist Jamie Beck started her #IsolationCreation project during the pandemic, and creates work each day as she stays home in the form of affordable, fine art posters. Beck's work provides 10% of proceeds to the Foundation for Contemporary Arts COVID-19 Relief Fund, for which she's raised over $15,000 so far. For the ultimate art-loving mom, one of Beck's portraits will celebrate the stillness of social distancing and give back to the art community.

CASETiFY's destroys 99.9% of germs that live on your phone's surface, and 100% of its proceeds go to GlobalGiving's Coronavirus Relief Fund.
