 I dont' know about you but my mom has always been a huge role model for me and over the years I realize how much she actually did for me throughout my entire life.  From changing diapers and losing sleep to answering my calls with homeowner questions and how to plant seeds in my garden, my mom has always been there for me.  While I know she appreciates something as simple as lunch and flowers, I like to give her gifts that are not only practical but very unique.

So for those of you that struggle to figure out what to get your mother every year, look no further than this unique gift guide I've put together with items from UncommonGoods, one of my favorite places to get beautiful and unique items and especially gifts for women.  I can always count on UncommonGoods for unique gift ideas year round.  

 I really love UncommonGoods because they are an independently-owned business and they are able to support causes near and dear to their heart.  With every purchase made, they donate $1 to the non-profit of your choice! In fact, since they started the Better to Give program 12 years ago, they have donated over $1Million to charities all over the world.   One of my favorites is the American Forests non0profit which protects and restores forests worldwide and helps preserve the health of the planet for us and future generations. 

The below list is great for a wide variety of moms whether your mom loves gifts of jewelry or gifts for the home. 

1. Literary Candles

If your mom has always been a fan of literary classics, why not give her the gift of soy candles that include the theme of some of the most notable novels. There are four amazing fragrances to choose from and they are all custom blended and hand-poured in New York.

2. Flavor Infused Water Bottle
For the mom that enjoys fruit and makes it a point to stay hydrated give her the gift of a flavor-infused water bottle taht she can fill with her favorite fruits and flavors.  Plus the glass bottle is environmentally friendly since it's reusable!

3. Birth Month Flower Necklace
What mom doesn't wear jewelry? Each necklace contains the birth flower for that month.  Each one is dried, pressed, and captured in a resin pendent.  The flowers are sourced from around the world.  Each and every flower is unique and beautiful!   This will definitely make her smile everytime she looks at it.

4. Dawn Redwood Bonsai Forest
It's a well known fact that moms worry about us no matter how old we get.  So help her relax with a Bonsai forest that she can keep anywhere in her home. It will act as a reminder to slow down and take a deep breath.  These small trees are ancestors of the giant California redwoods. I mean how cool is that?! 

5. Wine Soaps
Every mom loves soap and obviously wine.  So why not mix the two together with these unique wine soaps? These are all natural vegan and gluten-free soaps full of delicious fragrances of wine and oils.  Sometimes the only place moms can find peace is in the bathroom so let her stay in there and enjoy these soaps.

6. Upcycled Cotton Safari Robe
A robe is such a comforting thing that reminds you to stay cozy as soon as you wake up or as soon as you step out of the shower.  This would make a gorgeous gift for the mom that loves upcycled clothing. These squares of beautiful material have unique patterns and colors and are patched together by artisans in a village in India!

7. Ballerina Herbal Warming Slippers
Why do moms always have cold feet? I never understood that.  Regardless, your mom will love these cozy comfy slippers.  They not only will make her feet feel good but she can cool them down in the fridge in the summer and the put them on during the worst of heat waves.

8. Floral Wood Watch
Wood watches are all the rage these days but the floral wood watch takes the cake. It's created from driftwood and felled treats and the beautiful floral designs make it even more beautiful and unique. 

9. Artisanal Bamboo Salt Chest
For the moms that enjoy cooking you can't go wrong with a beautiful gourmet salt collection in this beautiful display box.  There are 24 salts from all around the world! This is the gift that keeps on giving for many meals to come.

10. Bamboo Pastel Nesting Bowls
And for the bakers out there, these pastel nesting bowls will brighten her day and make mixing ingredients even more fun. They are made from sustainable bamboo fiber and are very strong but lightweight.  A great edition to any mom's cabinets.

Make sure you let UncommonGoods be your go to source for your Mother's Day needs.
