Hi, it's Veronika here =)

As time goes on, different themes are making their way to our shop, yet one stays the same - it's all about being cruelty-free. Although the Mother's day isn't celebrated always the same day in every country, as far as I know, all dates are around springtime - and spring is coming! =) So today's article is, of course, about Mother's day - and it doesn't matter what exact date you celebrate it.
If you or your Mum are vegan (but even if not!), certainly have a look at my vegan picks for Mother's day, you'll be blown away with these amazing gift ideas that are kind to animals and the Earth.

Let's start with a nice classic that every Mother would appreciate - flowers. Flowers can be given as a bouquet or in a pot so they can last longer - I personally prefer this choice and I'm still enjoying my Valentine's roses that are happily living in the pot on the window just next to me =) And you can complement this with a floral theme on a card =)

My friend Charlotte is an amazing vegan photographer who runs an Etsy shop where you can find more than just her beautiful floral cards: 

Charlotte says: "All my greeting cards are blank inside so they are perfect for many occasions such as Mothers Day. After these lovely photo greeting cards are given they may be kept and framed to decorate your home" - just like this one below:


Mums like to knit, right? Well, my Mum does. But sometimes it's nice to get a pair of soft warm knits rather than do everything yourself. How about my friend Lu's baaless knits for Mother's day?

Lu says: "Mum will surely be over the moon with these beautifully soft cotton fingerless gloves. Made with lightweight yarn especially so that they feel weightless which makes them easy to wear no matter what Mum’s day entails.
Perfect for every Mum that appreciates beautiful things in an understated and elegant way, and being 100% plant-based they are cruelty-free and good for Mother Earth!"

Although you can choose your own colour scheme, if you like these sweet purple ones, they're actually finished and ready to ship - be quick to get them whilst they're still available =)


And if your Mum likes something elegant to wear when out for the day, just browse these gorgeous upcycled vegan leather bags from my friend Aubrey. Her shop is full of amazing pieces, so I asked her to choose one for Mother's day.

Aubrey says: "The ‘Ani’ vegan leather Tote Bag, has been designed for you, the ‘multi-tasking woman’, who desires to have: style, functionality, and uniqueness in her bag. An exquisite Mother's Day Gift for that special Mother."

Check out at this nice bag and don't forget to browse the shop for more sizes, variants, colours and beyond - backpacks, wallets... in case your mum has already her favourite bag but may be on the look-out for an elegant accessory.


Is your Mum an art enthusiast, just like my partner's Mum? Then I wouldn't want you to miss these amazing colouring books. Available both printed and as an instant download, so you can sort your Mother's day gift even at the last moment!

I have heard about colouring books for adults with advanced drawings, but these are absolutely exquisite. And if you're not totally sure how to colour grayscale pictures, there's a tutorial included - just click through and read the product description for more information. You know you are truly getting spot-on service =)

Lisa says: "Some points many people like: They all original hand-drawn art and grayscale makes a lovely realistic final masterpiece. Printable version for endless hours of fun, reprint and try different colors & techniques with 8"x10" images that are the perfect size for coloring and framing the final art."


My friend Maria had an amazing idea for a Mother's day gift - as I agree with her that mothers always need a bit more time for themselves to relax and a little natural luxury is always welcome =)

Maria says: "Made from pure linen fabric, our bathrobes are soft, luxurious, and made to make a person wearing it feel comfy and gorgeous at the same time. Every mother deserves a little bit of natural luxury, and a lot more time for themselves to relax and unwind. Made, designed, and chosen for a Mother's day gift pick by a mother."


Now, finally, if your Mum is a lady who likes jewellery, then I have one very special piece for you...

Why a cow necklace? Every vegan knows that the dairy industry traumatises cows by taking their calves away hours after birth. Cows are loving mothers and if you're vegan, you're actively saying no to participating in their suffering. For this reason, a cow necklace is a more than appropriate gift idea for Mother's day - for all mothers who are compassionate and understand true mother's love - no matter the species.

I hope you liked the selection and that it has given you some helpful ideas for this year's Mother's day. Perhaps you might even pick more than one if you're multicultural just like me - I celebrate two Mother's days every year! One in the UK, where I live, and one for my home country where my mum lives =) You can never show your Mum enough appreciation. Happy Mother's day!

P.S. If you still don't have enough tips and ideas for the Mother's day, try the Etsy's picks too.

Hi, it's Veronika, your vegan friend and content creator of Veronika Honestly (no, not my surname).

Thank you for reading this whole article =) I have a few things to mention here:

Firstly, if not already mentioned in the article, I would like you to know about my Honest Language Disclaimer (no, it's not about profanity) - in case you were wondering why my English is so weird and not Oxford-dictionary perfect (whose English is, anyway...)

Secondly, my post may contain affiliate links. Namely Etsy and Amazon links. If you click through and buy anything there, I will get a small commission, so you are basically helping me to reach the goals, to raise funds for animals sanctuaries. All of that at no extra cost to you or the seller. It's a win-win =)

Now, in the end, I have a tiny request: If you liked this post, could you please share this?
Sharing helps to keep my costs down so more can go towards animal charities and perhaps you'll make one's day by showing them something from this blog they will like to read! A share from you would seriously help a lot with the growth of this blog that focuses on spreading the vegan word and kindness - just the things you also care about =)

You may like to pin some graphics from here, you may want to share it to your blog (do you have a vegan-themed blog? Let me know, let's collaborate!) or to your favourite Facebook group... there are plenty of choices!

Thank you for your support!
