The Good List: Mother’s Day Edition – Featuring all Female Makers

Give your mother a special heartfelt, handmade gift this year.

Well, handmade by someone else. Someone who knows what they’re doing. Someone who doesn’t end up getting glue in their hair and sneezing glitter for hours afterwards.

1. Beautiful jewelry with a hidden message for mom.

Made of recycled (and recyclable) aluminum, this line of bracelets, earrings and necklaces from Giftologie are the trifecta of goodness: handmade, sustainable and each purchase supports local and global women’s initiatives.

2. Timeless, handcrafted leather goods.

Inspired by nature and the Swedish forests where she grew up, the maker behind Fortrollad carefully crafts each piece in her collection with timeless style and sustainability as guiding principles.

3. One-of-a-kind pottery.

These gorgeous Shino glazed mugs from A Third Space Pottery are the perfect marriage of good looks and purpose. Mom will be reminded of your thoughtful gift each time she sips her favourite beverage.

4. Mouth-watering deliciousness, in a cake.

You may not be able to take mom for a trip to Jamaica, but Montfriese Rum Cakes can give her the next best thing, delicious Jamaican Rum Cake. Made locally in the Niagara Region, ships across North America.

5. Spring in a jar.

Made with love by an amazing mother of 3, Mother’s Touch Candles are my favourite go-to for gift giving. My current obsession is Flower Child, an uplifting floral scent perfect for spring.

The Good List is a curated list of things that are good for you, your community and the planet.
