The open book mom

Out of Print celebrates the world’s great stories through fashion. They understand that many parts of the world don’t have access to books at all, and for that, they pledge that for each product sold, one book is donated to a community in need through their partner, Books For Africa.

The mama manager

This designer fragrance gives back 50 percent of the purchase price to the Tory Burch Foundation, which supports economic empowerment of women entrepreneurs. Every time she pulls this portable Tory Burch Eau De Parfum out of her handbag, she can power through closing a new deal, while helping other women do the same.

The gourmet governor mom

Any meal she serves on Catherine's Table dinnerware will remind her of her contribution to Meals on Wheels, which helps provide over one million meals to seniors each and every day.

The hands-on mom

Pamper mom's pair of hardworking hands with Julep's Mind Your Mani beautifying nail care collection which features nail moisture masks, Mighty Nail & Cuticle Serum and Julep's much-raved-about Oxygen Nail Treatment. Mom will also love that she'll have a hand at helping others; 20 percent of proceeds between May 1 and 12 will benefit the Polaris Project.

The state-of-the-"art" mom

For every beautiful art print sold from Sevenly, $7 is donated to their weekly charity partner.

The fashion-forward mom

For every pair of stylish sunglasses purchased, TOMS provides Giving Partners with funding to restore or save the sight of one individual.

This Heart of Haiti Vase from Macy's is beautifully handmade by local Haitian artisans still struggling to recover from the devastating earthquake in 2010. Mom can warm up her home, while helping rebuild homes and hearts in Haiti.
