Make gifting intentional this year and give mom something meaningful, sustainable, hand-crafted, and/or simply beautiful from brands that support the very purpose of the day. We’ve got options available for next-day shipping, but even if your favorite gift below is due arrives sometime next week, the thought behind it is well worth the wait.

Even though Mother’s Day is only days away, it’s never too late to find and give meaningful gifts. Read on for some beautiful options from mom-owned or founded brands.
