For those of us with loving, supportive mothers in our lives, we should be telling them how much we love and appreciate them as often as we get the chance. However, like all other holidays on which we give gifts, Mother’s Day is a nice opportunity to give them a symbol of your love as a special little reminder. It’s the day to recognize not just our own mothers, but the other selfless amazing mothers we know who guide us, teach us, and shape us. In giving your mom a gift, why not make it a compassionate one by buying her something that’s cruelty-free? Your mother, friend, sister, whoever you want to honor will appreciate that no animals were harmed in the making of their gift.
We put together a gift guide of 15 cruelty-free products available on Amazon to help you find the perfect something special for the woman who deserves the world!

The handles fit over the shoulder, the stitching is uniformly good, the inside is darker brown and soft to the touch, the color is a rich tan, and it’s pretty light weight. I have other all leather, unlined totes but wanted to change over to more animal friendly products, and this bag fits the bill. Give it a try.

And because she’s getting forgetful, she loves it like the first time each time that she reads it, even if that was only moments before. When I first sat down to fill it in, I gave myself lots of time, thought methodically about each page’s prompt, and tried to write rough draft responses on scratch paper that I planned to polish and refine later.”

I received it and tried it, and it has me totally captivated! The scent is so close to what I remember my Mom’s plant smelling like, and when I spray this delicious juice, I am immediately carried back in time and my mind is flooded with some sweet memories from that time in my life.”
