Wow, time has been flying by lately and I can’t believe it’s already May. That means it’s almost Mother’s Day! Now, I know we all take good care of our mothers everyday, but this is a special day to really honor her, so I hope you got her something good! If not, here’s a quick roundup of some gifts that I know I a lot of moms would appreciate.

GIZAAGI'IN GIFT SET (ECLIPSE) by Beyond Buckskin – $90.00

This one of a kind gift set features a beaded cuff by Navajo artist Iris Nathaniel. Comes in a complementary woodlands floral beadwork design pouch with the Ojibwe word for love on it. Comes with a zip closure and interior pocket. Works great for cosmetics, art supplies, and other small essentials.

White Buffalo Cuff Bracelet from Kotah Bear – $ 160

I’ve recently fallen in love with white buffalo turquoise and Kotah Bear has been stocking their stores with a lot of it! This striking cuff features a beautifully shaped piece of white buffalo surrounded by amazing sterling silver.

Navajo Handmade Horse Hair Pottery by Navajo Secrets – $55

With all this jewelry laying around, Mom is going to need a beautiful box to store it in. Check out this gorgeous box from Navajo Secrets. Three different styles of pottery making in one piece! Materials used include horsehair, white, black, marble, clay, turquoise, and feather.

RENEWAL BATH TOWEL from Eighth Generation – $46.00

These ultra plush bath towels were designed in collaboration with Eighth Generation’s Inspired Natives Project. I chose the Renewal Bath Towel by designed by Sarah Agaton Howes (Anishinaabe) but there are two other beautiful designs to choose from! Can you imagine how amazing a set of these would look amazing in Mom’s bathroom!

This design draws inspiration from Sarah’s own hand-made regalia, and symbolizes the idea that humans are part of nature and that the renewal and revitalization of the land, water, sky and spirit require us to understand and practice our ancestral ways. 70% Cotton, 30% Bamboo

And if you can’t have it shipped there in time, you can always check out some Native-owned and supported businesses that offer gift cards!


I hope this guide was helpful! And if you can’t get it in time for Mother’s Day, there are plenty of other occasions to give a gift. Keep these businesses in mind throughout the year as a lot of them are Native-owned. Just click on the bold links below each photo to be taken to the website to purchase. Happy Mother's Day!
