It’s no secret that Mother’s Day is fast approaching, and we here at Harfi have made it our mission to help you pick out the perfectly special gift for the special woman in your life. In order to help you in your quest for the best unique and ethical gift, we’ve brainstormed the top 5 ethical and ecological gifts for the best mother in the world.
Argan Oil - For the health conscious mum
Argan Oil is the perfect gift for a mum who likes to take care of herself and the world around her. It’s vegan, ethically sourced, and traditionally harvested from an eco co-operative in Morocco.
The oil is perfect for use on hair, skin, lips, and nails to provide moisture and nourishment. It can also be used as an all-natural anti-ageing serum, as its high levels of Vitamin E, antioxidants, and vital fatty acids make it great for revitalising skin. Moroccan women have used Argan Oil as a natural beauty product for generations, and the tradition has spread across the world.
Ella Ring - For the stylish mum
Jewellery is, of course, a classic. You can’t go wrong with a ring or a lovely pair of earrings. Stylish jewellery can be a great fit for any outfit and any occasion, and a handmade accessory is always a conversation starter.
Our super stylish Ella rings are gold-plated sterling silver, with ethically sourced opal gemstones, all from our artisans in India. With all the concerns surrounding where precious metals and gems are sourced, wouldn’t it be nice to be sure that your jewellery has contributed to the community where it came from?
Kara Bag - For the adventurous mum
For the mum who likes travel and adventure, a stylish yet efficient bag is key. We would recommend a compact and lightweight bag, perfect for carrying the essentials with minimal hassle.
Our pick would have to be the Kara Handbag, as its hand-woven rattan is directly, ethically, and ecologically sourced from Vietnam and worked in the beautiful pattern by local artisans. The combination of sustainable materials and traditional technique makes this a perfect pick for the ethical and adventurous mum in all of us.
Linh Basket - For the organised mum
Looking for a gift that is equal parts practical and ethical? A seagrass Linh Basket could be the perfect solution for a mum that likes to keep organised. This collapsible basket can be used for all sorts of things around the house; from storing clothes to housing plants.
The collapsible basket is weaved by Vietnamese artisans from ethically sourced seagrass, making sure that the local communities are able to thrive on their craft.
Azra Towel - For the eco mum
The Azra Towel is the perfect gift for a mum that cares deeply for the world around her, crafted from the finest organic cotton and handwoven by Turkish artisans. The towel can be just as luxurious at the beach as in the bathroom, making every use feel like a visit to a Turkish spa.
The Turkish peshtemal towel dates back to the time of the Ottomans, and each region has its own details and designs. The traditional weaving and ethical sourcing makes this a great gift.
