What are the best Mother's Day gifts? Sustainable and thoughtful gifts for 2024 (including coffee!)

Mother's Day, otherwise known as "Mothering Sunday" falls on Sunday 10th March this year. This very special occasion is dedicated to celebrating the incredible women in our lives who have nurtured, supported, and loved us over time. Whether that be mothers, grandmothers, stepmothers, primary caregivers or maternal figures who have made a profound impact on our lives. Each year Founder Alice tries to think of something thoughtful to give her mother, Kay. Of course a card and flowers are the classic gift, but Mother's Day has become bigger and bigger over the past few years and where she can, Alice tries to get a thoughtful gift alongside a card!

At Rise we see a huge surge in gifts around Mother's Day - especially as we add personalised, hand written gift notes for free! So we'll start off our guide by making a few coffee related recommendations (we are a coffee company after all!) as well as some sustainable gift options that are Rise favourites.

Mother's Day Gift Ideas

First up - The coffee and chocolate lovers gift box - this is a classic gift box with an option to add a handwritten gift note. With Montezuma's chocolate, specifically Giant buttons AND a delicious Happicino bar (if you haven't tried or heard of this it's delicious coffee nibs in milk chocolate), both in the box this is definitely a gift for a chocolate lover. The chocolate comes with a freshly roasted sustainable coffee bag with your grind of choice (choose from various ground coffee options or whole beans). We think this gift makes for a neat little gift package!

Next up - our classic 3 month subscription! Give the gift of coffee for not just one, but 3 months! Our coffee subscription box comes jam packed with information about the coffee, tasting notes, brew guides and more! We have some excellent choices coming up and know they will make a great Mother's Day gift.

We love - Upcircle Beauty! You've probably heard us talk about this sustainable beauty brand before. They reuse coffee grounds to make exceptional, sustainable coffee related beauty products. Our particular favourite is the Caffeinated duo set. Alice puts the serum (which is actually an oil made up of lots of natural oils including coffee) on every night! And often chases Ben around to get some on his face too! 

If you have some cash to splash - Caz Studio has the most exceptional high quality products that are truly sustainable. From ethically sourced materials to meticulous production, they believe in making beautiful fabric accessible to all. Most of all, we are committed to ensuring no cashmere goes to waste and have a "repair and refresh" cashmere clinic! This scarf in particular is a good price and looks super cosy. 

Relaxing gifts - These candles from St Eval are really good value, beautiful and smell amazing. St Eval are also a B corp - a for-profit corporation certified by B Lab for its social impact. At Rise we love Cornwall and love how this brand evokes the calming coastal vibe of our fav place!

Other thoughtful Mother's Day gifts..

Try a local spa nearby, some of them offer day passes or half day passes versus expensive stays. 

Afternoon tea, always a classic and so many options for buying vouchers up front where you can choose and book a date for later in the year.

Flowers - of course you can buy a bunch, but we also love a subscription (us, really?!) and have Bloom & Wild monthly in our house and they last forever!

Ultimately, the best Mother's Day gift is one that comes from the heart—a thoughtful gesture that reflects your appreciation for that person! We hope you all have a lovely day, and appreciate that Mother's Day can be incredibly difficult for some people out there.

Take care,

Alice (& Ben)
