Now more than ever, we all want to see our moms. Most of us can’t celebrate Mother’s Day in person this year, making the gifts we send all the more special. With many companies donating to COVID-related causes, we thought we’d show you Mother’s Day gifts that give back that are super cool but they also donate a portion to great causes. (You’ll score big points for being extra thoughtful, and what mom wouldn’t be proud of that?)
KENDRA SCOTT BRACELETS
50% of proceeds from Kendra Scott’s Everlyne Bracelet suite go to Feeding America, which is on a mission to feed children that are going hungry. To that end, the Kendra Scott brand donated 500,000 meals to kick off their campaign to help in COVID-19 relief efforts, and to date, they have donated over 1.67 million meals and counting.
NANCY NEWBERG JEWELRY
Next up in our Mother’s Day gifts that give back are the many beautiful pieces in Nancy Newberg’s collection. No matter what you choose, your mom will love it. And Nancy Newberg Jewelry is donating 30% of proceeds from all online sales to ShieldLA, which is a volunteer group that designed and produces low-cost face shields for hospitals in need.
Dagne Dover accessories
For those who prefer to give a pocketbook or bag, we love Dagne Dover’s stylish and lightweight accessories. What makes their donation extra special is that for every purchase of any Dagne Dover product, the company is donating 10% to the charity of your choice and giving customers 10% off when you use the code TOGETHER online.

K. HALL STUDIO CANDLES
With everyone at home these days, it’s no better time to gift a candle. We bet these Mother’s Day candles will be a very popular gift. And now K. Hall Studio is making Limited Edition candles where 100% of the profits will support Feeding America’s COVID-19 Response Fund.

The popular beauty brand Bliss has had an Instagram campaign going where followers can nominate healthcare workers to get special care packages filled with Bliss products. Every Thursday the company picks 5 lucky medical professionals to win the fun and useful items. Any special mom or aunt would love a cleanser, moisturizer, or cream from Bliss.
Milk MakeUp is super popular with fashionistas and all who crave hip make up. With its sleek packaging, cruelty and chemical-free products, and awesome color options, you can’t go wrong getting your momma one of their goodies. Recently, Milk Makeup donated over $250,000 worth of beauty products to hospitals for its healthcare workers. Any one of their mascaras, lip tints, or even an MVP set of some of their most popular items, fits the bill as a great mother’s day gift option.
So this year — or any year! — consider purchasing Mother’s Day gifts that give back so you AND your mom will feel great.
