Mother’s Day is right around the corner and it’s time to start thinking about how you can show your love to the mom (or moms!) in your life. Whether that’s your own mother, grandmother, or wife or any maternal figure, this is a great time to acknowledge how much they mean to you. At Nunbelievable we are all about the power of giving, especially when it comes with a purpose. Here are a few Mother's Day gift ideas that give back and are sure to leave a lasting impression.
Flowers are always a great way to bring joy into someone’s life — and especially so on Mother’s Day. When searching for the perfect bouquet or arrangement, consider supporting a local small business or one that’s owned by women or minorities. And make sure the flowers you select are fair trade. Fair trade products are environmentally friendly, support sustainable livelihoods, and help to ensure that employees earn a living wage and work in safe conditions. Organizations likeFair TradeAmerica andFair Trade Certified can help you find local and responsible merchants.
Gifts that Give Back
If you want to bring a smile to mom while also doing some good, consider a gift that has a socially conscious mission attached. Companies likePacked With Purpose assemble gift boxes with products that support women- and minority-owned small businesses and important causes like women's empowerment, clean water initiatives, and training for those with barriers to employment opportunities.
Another great way to give a gift that gives back on this holiday is to shop via groups that support women.Every Mother Counts, a non-profit organization that helps women around the world who struggle with pregnancy, childbirth, and other maternal healthcare issues, has a variety of options that help their cause.

Honor Thy Mother
For the mom who has everything, consider making a donation in her name to one of her favorite causes. Whether it’s breast cancer awareness, homelessness, a local non-profit organization working in the community, or anything that is close to her heart, she’s sure to appreciate the gesture. Need a suggestion? We wholeheartedly encourage donating to our impact partners:Feeding America,City Relief,House of Mercy,North Texas Food Bank,World Vision, andJoshua’s Heart Foundation, all of which are helping fight hunger and homelessness and raising awareness about these vital causes.
And if you want to do some good while strengthening the connection with your mom, consider signing up to volunteer side-by-side with a local charitable organization that she supports. Spending a few hours together while helping those in need could be the perfect gift that is sure to provide warm memories for mom — and for you.
