The things they do for us… from bringing us into this world safe and sound, to putting up with us during full-on tantrums, to just being there when we need them the most.
Let’s be honest, mums aren’t celebrated half as much as they should be! That’s why we should all fully embrace Mother’s day to appreciate, thank or remember our mums and spend some time reflecting on what they’ve done for us.
Here at Social Supermarket, we have collated a list of wonderful Mother’s Day gifts which we know mum’s will not only fall in love with but which also have a real impact on social issues benefitting society.
From the wonderful Page and Bloom, whose handmade, paper flowers made from recycled books and maps which support victims of domestic abuse through employment, to The GoodWash Company who have partnered with Llamau in creating luxurious soy wax candles which help provide support to local women and children at risk of homelessness in Wales.
We’ve selected a few of our absolute favourites below or you can browse the full list here.
Page and Bloom – Map Rose Bouquet
These handmade, sustainable decorations start out as paper that has come to the end of its original life. Rather than ending up in landfill, or in a dusty attic, they give paper a new life as something beautiful through the work of skilled designers with little more than scissors, glue, wire and a little bit of love and imagination.
Page and Bloom are a social enterprise created to provide fair employment and opportunities for women who have experienced domestic abuse. They work in partnership with domestic abuse charities, to provide these women with employment once they have moved on from a women’s refuge.
The Goodwash Company x Llamau – Soy wax Candle
The perfect gift for Mothers day. These limited edition luxurious copper lid soy candle, infused with key notes of Frosted Lavender, Wild Musk and Citrus.
Every candle sold will donate 100% of profits directly to their charity partners Llamau, to support local women and children at risk of homelessness in Wales.
The Soap Co. – Black Poppy & Wild Fig Trio
This sumptuous trio gift box features the Black Poppy & Wild Fig range in Hand Wash, Hand Lotion and Bar Soap, and is presented in a recyclable box that is made using 100% recycled paper with vegetable based ink for printing.
