Fair Trade for Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is fast approaching!  Gift your mom one of these fantastic fair trade gifts:

“Why is There a Hippo in the Toilet?!” – This cute little book is a collection of the funny things moms say to their kids.  I think this would be an especially great gift for a Dad or Grandparent to buy “from” the kids to mom…because really, we can only use so many “world’s greatest mom” mugs.  Author Kimberly Dawn Rempel is hosting a giveaway on her website right now, and if you don’t win the e-version is only $0.99, so purchase it and have a little laugh (and support a local author if you’re Manitoban)!



Vintage Bling  jewelry is made by a fabulous Winnipeg artist.  Each piece is one-of-a-kind and re-purposed from vintage pieces.




This pretty necklace from 31 Bits was made by artisans in Uganda and a great Summer piece.  The beads are made from recycled paper.IMG_7360_1024x1024_1_largeIf bold, brass and bright jewelry is more your mother’s style, Soko offers beautiful pieces handmade in Kenya.  Soko is currently offering 20% off with the code SOKOLOVESMOM



Have a crafty mom who would like to take an online knitting, sewing, cooking, cake decorating, or other type of class?  Gift her a Craftsy gift certificate.


If you’re gifting mom flowers this Mother’s Day, look for fair trade certified.  Here in Winnipeg, Ann’s Flowers carries fair trade certified flowers.   nisolo

This Nisolo clutch is fun and practical.


Happy Mother’s Day!  Let us know, what are you getting for your Mom?
