Meaningful Gifts for Moms - A Mother's Day Gift Guide

April 10, 2015 2 min read


We’ve received so much feedback since dignify started from daughters & moms about how pleased they are to have a “meaningful gift” to give someone they love.

Inspired, we’ve compiled a guide of even more ideas, practical tips, & specific goods, all sparked by the idea of a “meaningful” gift – specifically, with moms in mind (and plenty of time for Mother's Day!).

WHAT MAKES A MEANINGFUL GIFT?

Some gifts are meaningful because they’re thoughtful – who is she? What are her interests? What would she appreciate?

Some gifts are meaningful because they give more – a memory, a skill, an heirloom, an opportunity.

And some gifts are meaningful simply because they are not "stuff" – they have value beyond their ability to fill a space (Moms do hate waste, after all…)

Overall, we chose ideas & items that bring dignity: to mom, to the relationship, & to the world. And, we’re definitely partial to quality & longevity.


Our definition is admittedly broad! But, with help from some fabulous contributors, we’ve produced a guide that we think is helpful, fun, & good, and are proud to share it with you. If you love it, we hope you will share it, too! 

How to use this guide:

Simple! Just take it.

No bribes. No emails in exchange. Just free. For everyone.

[Clicking will open the pdf in a new window. For the best experience, we recommend downloading it (right click, Save Target As…) and opening in Adobe Reader.]

One note:

The guide is full of many links to the excellent items throughout. Most of the links are subtle; hover over text & images to find links to click through. If you are reading in a browser window, make sure to right click on any link to open it in a new tab.

 

If you like the guide & find it useful, we'd love for you to share it!

It all started with a wedding. 

Did you know that the first blanket we ever bought was for a wedding gift? 

We knew about Basha, and I loved the blankets. But, we were living the student-life at the time; I wasn’t spending $4 on a coffee, much less $100 on a blanket — no matter how much I loved it!

“Do you even know what a big problem human trafficking is?” 

This is a question I was posed by someone I love, someone who knows me and what I do. But this was a rant borne, I think, of the powerlessness and overwhelm of learning more about the world; of being faced with the cruelty & despair of suffering; of coming to see — and really feel — the frustration that some people with money, power, & influence, continually wield it unjustly with no end or recourse in sight.

Do I know what a big problem human trafficking is?
Yes, it is a big problem. Yes, I am aware of it.
