CHRYSOCOLLA COCKTAIL RING “HUG”
It isn’t always easy to buy women jewelry, but this ring is almost certain to be a big hit with mothers. Made by Peruvian artist Leslie Granthan, the sterling silver ring “hugs” a striking chrysocolla stone that looks just like turquoise. Sustainable, affordable, and absolutely stunning, this ring can be worn at fancy parties or a casual gathering.
FOREST POOL NECKLACE
This incredible necklace might look like it’s laced with gems, but those are actually tree nuts. And they are totally sustainable. The Tagua nut from South America falls to the ground when its mature, so nary a tree has been harmed in the production of this necklace, and then Sapia artisans from Colombia slice and dye them using eco-sensitive materials. They are called the ivory of the forest because of their durable consistency.
ORGANIC AROMATHERAPY BODY SOAP GIFT BOX
If your mama is anything like us, she almost never buys herself soothing soaps (though she secretly wishes to have a cupboard full of them.) But so many soaps these days are full of nasty chemicals that are neither good for skin or for the earth when flushed through the pipes. That’s why we recommend this fabulous gift set from El Salvador. Developed by a father and daughter team, the soaps are made with organic coconut, sesame, essential oils and smell amazing. Even the packaging is USDA certified organic.
