Mothers Day – Arguably one of the most important days of the year.
“Life doesn’t come with a manual, it comes with a mother.”
A mother can come in many shapes and sizes. We want to wish a Happy Mother's day to all of the moms, the grandmoms, the foster moms, the stepmoms, the surrogate moms, moms to be, those longing to be moms, those who have lost their moms and anyone in your life who gives that beautiful mother figure feel.
BUT how can you possibly wrap up all of your love and appreciation for the “Mom” in your life into a gift you know she’ll love?
We’re here to help! We’ve curated a mothers day gift basket guide, packed with everything you need to help the special mom in your life relax, unwind, nourish and feel her best self. Just as she deserves.
This list is comprised of some our fave brands, many of which are: Women Led, Sustainable, Fair Trade, Certified B-Corp and Organic companies.

Humble Potato Chips –
Offering a certified organic potato chip means that everything - how the potatoes are grown, then cooked and seasoned - is carefully monitored to ensure the certification.

Yet on that front, we have super passionate farming partners who have dedicated their blood, sweat, tears, and livelihoods to growing organic potatoes for us.
