Ethical Mother’s Day gifts from Social Supermarket, starting from £15.99

This Mother’s Day (Sunday, 27th March 2022) the social enterprise marketplace Social Supermarket brings you a gifting edit with purpose, to show your mum or mother-figure how much you care. Whether you’d like to share their favourite tipple, a stylish bouquet, or a relaxing candle, make sure you’re looking after the person who looks after you, and in turn, your present is looking after someone else. By purchasing your gift through Social Supermarket, you’ll be supporting survivors of domestic violence, charities that tackle human trafficking and educational programmes around the world.

Select a thoughtful, individual gift  from food and wellbeing brands that give back – such as Miss Macaroon, Tea in the Moment and Scintilla – or choose from Social Supermarket’s curated, ethical gift boxes (starting from £26.99), for a care package that reflects their needs. Each gift box brings together brands to create a larger ripple of impact with every present shared.
