Amazon Just Dropped an AAPI-Owned Section With Gorgeous Finds & They Make Perfect Mother’s Day Gifts

It’s Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month, and in the wake of recent attacks on AAPI people, we need to do all we can to support them to put an end to the violence and discrimination. From attending protests and donating money and time to AAPI organizations in your area to supporting AAPI-owned businesses, there are so many ways to get involved. And now, Amazon just made it a breeze to vote with your dollars, thanks to their curated AAPI-owned section that’s full of handcrafted skincare, jewelry, and accessories.

Mother’s Day just so happens to be less than a week away, so if you’re in a pinch and on the hunt for a last-minute Mother’s Day gift that, well, doesn’t look so last minute, you’ve come to the right place. From one-of-a-kind jewelry she’s sure to love to candles that feel like a spa day in a jar, these impressive finds honestly don’t even look like they came from Amazon. Ahead, check out the best finds from Amazon’s newly launched AAPI-owned section, and make sure to get yourself something too—it’s all for a good cause!
