The Do Gooding Gift Guide for Moms

26 April 2013

I am always at a loss for what to get our dear Queen Mother for holidays. My mom has a huge heart, impeccable taste and a very generous spirit where I usually feel indebted to her for all the kind things she is doing for me.

She loves charming housewares, silver jewlery and anything pink. She also loves reaching a hand of opportunity out to others, which is why I think she'll love a gift from my Noonday Collection site this year. Every Noonday piece is ethically made my artisan groups around the world who employ women to keep them out of poverty. All of my selections below are below $50, which means I can gift something to my sweet Mom without worrying if I'm blowing my own budget at the same time!

Mother's Day Gifts - Fair Trade Gifts Less than $50

Mother's Day Gifts - Fair Trade Gifts Less than $50 by lilly-neubauer featuring knot earrings

Bone Carved Polygon Necklace - This necklace from India has been really popular at Noonday trunk shows that I've hosted for women of every age group. I think it is a more global inspired take on pearls. It looks great with an oxford shirt or shift dress!

French Knotted Cuff - This bracelet is made in Guatemala, and I love the fun pop of pink it adds to classic outfits like jeans and a crisp white shirt! It's perfect for a young mom too, since it is a good size for toddler grabbing but isn't too delicate for the playground.

Knotted Nobility Earrings - The intricate beading and weaving on these earrings is striking. The true statement, though, is the story behind these. The beads are made from previous war weapons that have been melted down and are made by women living in a community in Ethiopia for people who are mostly HIV positive and are receiving healthcare, literacy and job training.

Wola Noni Bowls - I love having small bowls and trays out on counters and tables to collect car keys, spare change and jewlery to cut down on clutter and add color to a space. This set of bowls that are made in South Africa come in a set of three sizes and will hold your necessities while bringing fun pops of color to a room.

Kenyan Kikoy - This lightweight blanket style scarf can be used for almost anything! Perfect for a wrap during air travel, a pareo on the beach or even a blanket for a small picnic. The colors brighten up an outfit instantly!

This Mother's Day, I'm showing my Mom how much I care for her by giving her a gift that also empowers women around the world. Please shop the Noonday Collection with me to give the gift that gives twice this year! All orders placed by April 30 aer guaranteed Mother's Day delivery.
