Let’s face it, Moms make the world go around. With Mother’s Day rapidly approaching, you may have found yourself stuck on what you can gift to your Mom this year that will reflect how wonderful, unique, and inspiring she truly is. After all, our Moms have played a pivotal role in shaping the way that we navigate the often strange and confusing world around us from a very young age. 

Even as we find ourselves entering adulthood or having children of our own, we continually pull from the values and integrity that our mothers implanted within us to make the most conscious choices for ourselves, those around us, and the world at large. So, what better way to honor your mother on this Mother’s Day than with a gift that represents the very values she worked so hard to instill in you? This conscious gift guide offers a sampling of unique, handcrafted goodies that support some of the causes that remain near and dear to our hearts.

Prosperity Candles

These beautifully scented, handcrafted candles represent a unique story with every pour and would make the perfect gift. Founded by a trio of women who were committed to creating a brighter future for themselves and others, Prosperity Candles provides refugee women an opportunity to learn a trade and provide for their family with the art of pouring candles.

Made from all-natural ingredients including soy and coconut wax, these candles are as safe as they are beautiful. The wood wix provides a soothing, crackling sound for ultimate relaxation and the refillable jars can be repurposed for a lifetime of enjoyment. What a unique gift!
