Don’t worry, it’s not too late and you didn’t miss the mark; but set a reminder, add it to your calendar, or circle the date in your planner for Mother’s Day this year: Sunday May 14th!
Whether you’re celebrating mom or honoring multiple generations of mother figures, making a mom feel seen is one of the best ways to show your appreciation. That being said, thinking outside the (gift) box on a deadline is a challenge, and to soothe the panic, we’ve put together some of mom’s favorites to get those creative juices flowing. And you already know that we pride ourselves on making sure that our products are made with ingredients that are good for you and the environment with methods that are simple, trusted, and conscious. Only the best for mom!
If you’re looking for the facts without the fluff, we’ve got our handy Mother’s Day Gift Guide, but if you need a little bit more inspiration we’ll get right to it.
For the Comfy and Cozy Mom:
If you can count 3 places in your childhood home where there is an artfully placed candle to set the mood, we’re in candle territory. Light up her life by giving the gift of ambiance with our CLEAN RESERVE Rain Natural Soy Blend Candle. What will really set this one apart from the rest is that it's vegan, gluten-free and created without parabens, dyes, phthalates or petroleum, for an ultra-clean, toxin-free burn she can feel good about. And don’t forget to mention the reusable glass votive!
If she’s moved on from candles or you want to broaden her horizons, our CLEAN RESERVE Fresh Linens Liquid Reed Diffuser may be just the thing. It’s subtle, it's pure, and the constant fragrance lasts for weeks at a time. Plus the vase and natural rattan reeds look beautiful as a centerpiece.
For the “Your Mom’s So Cool” Mom:
If you’ve heard that phrase for as long as you can remember, your mom is elegant and values subtlety. A perfect addition to her vanity is our CLEAN RESERVE Skin perfume. Perfect for the every day and inspired by a warm embrace, the combination of vanilla and cedarwood is light but confident (and makes hugs that much better). The vanilla is really the star of the show: it’s sustainably sourced from our partner in Madagascar, through a program that supports drinking water wells, medical facilities for the farming community and reforestation projects. It’s a perfect way to do good and give back while being fabulous.
For the “It’s Ok to Take a Break, Sweetie” Mom:
We love a self-care queen who knows that sometimes you need to put yourself first. A perfect treat for her would be something from our skincare line. Whether it’s a cleanser, moisturizer, face mask, or mist, you are giving the gift of radiant skin, with the confidence of effective and high quality ingredients. But we think the ultimate treat is our superstar: Purple Clay Detoxifying Mask, paired with our Elderflower Mist (best enjoyed in good company). So why not plan a spa night for you and mom, get settled, and come out rejuvenated, reinvigorated and glowing.
For the “Up and At ‘Em” Mom:
If it seems like your mom has not stopped moving in YEARS, she may appreciate some high quality, effective bodycare. Our Buriti & Aloe Purifying Body Wash is gentle but efficient while keeping the skin cleansed and supple, and pairs perfectly with our Buriti Hydrating Body Lotion, which is phenomenal at relieving dry skin. Plus they look beautiful together!
If you know she’s been on the hunt for a natural deodorant, our Kakadu Plum Brightening Deodorant is the one. It’s formulated with plant-derived and biodegradable molecules that neutralize body odors, such as Kakadu Plum (which also brightens and evens the skin tone), and gives off a light, citrus scent.
For the Flower and Garden Mom:
Whether it’s gardening or a constant need for cut flowers in the house, one of the best things to gift a flower-loving mom is a long-lasting bouquet. Our CLEAN CLASSIC Flower Fresh perfume has notes of Waterlily, Gardenia and Jasmine, and is reminiscent of being in a field of fresh wildflowers, satisfying any floral cravings instantly.
Pro-tip: Pair with a bouquet of cut flowers from your local grocery store, and she’ll be thrilled!
For the Feisty Mama Bear Mom:
If your mom is not afraid to tell you what she thinks and loves to get a little feisty (it all stems from love), our CLEAN RESERVE Sparkling Sugar perfume is the perfect blend of sweet with a little sass. The scent opens with delightful cassis berries paired with a balancing and sustainably sourced ambrette from El Salvador. The perfect blend of sweetness comes from middle notes of juicy peach nectar and sparkling pink sugar that is grounded with just the right hint of white musk and blond woods. But the best part is that our limited edition bottle partners with EARTHDAY.ORG to protect our pollinators, the lucky ladybugs. Making sure that while she smells phenomenal, she can also know she’s doing good with every spritz!
Now, if none of those descriptions sound quite right, or you’re suffering from decision paralysis, you can always purchase one of our gift cards and give her the gift of choice with the security that our pledge is to be simple, trusted and conscious with all of our products and methods. After all, moms (sometimes) know best, but it's the thought, the attention and the appreciation that really count, both this Mother’s Day, and any other day you feel like showing your mom some extra love. We hope you get to spend a beautiful day showering your mother figures with love this year. Happy Mother’s Day!
