The whole world’s inside, and the streets are asleep, and, at Marina De Buchi HQ, lockdown directly corresponds to additional pamper time and more self-care. And, as Mother’s Day rolls in, we’ve been daydreaming about all the conscious and sustainable gift ideas that are perfect for celebrating and uplifting deserving moms.
The Marina De Buchi ethos is one of giving back, and we love supporting brands that share our ideals. We’ve collated the most thoughtful Mother’s Day gift ideas from businesses whose philosophies resonate with ours: including brands that donate their proceeds to charity, those with impeccable environmental values, and more.
This Mother’s Day, we’re celebrating moms by protecting mother nature.
The Mother Nature-Loving Mother’s Day Gift Ideas
Rejoice, vino-devourers, because Ashton and Mila Kutcher’s new initiative has made cracking open that second bottle of furlough merlot even easier.
Partnering with Nocking Point, the Kutchers have created Quarantine Wine, donating all profits to five hand-picked C-19 relief charities. Grab two bottles of Quarantine Pinot Noir for just $50 and have them shipped straight to your mom’s doorstep. Or, deliver them home so you can personalize the blank label and make a toast to Mom.
If wine’s not quite enough this Mother’s Day, double up on personalized gifts and pair this present with Marina De Buchi’s initial lumiela necklace.

Handmade Himalayan Bath Salts
We’re learning to appreciate the little things in lockdown, and this includes whiling away the evenings in a steamy, fragrant bath, with a good book and a glass of wine. Like us, moms across the globe are taking to the tub en masse, and bath salts have truly become the perfect wind down companion.
Take your quarantine activities to the next level and make your mom our handmade Himalayan potion.
Here’s what you’ll need (or household variants of):
- 3 cups Epsom salts
- 1 cup Himalayan pink salt
- Dried rose petals (or lavender)
- 15 drops jojoba oil (or lavender/orange essential oils)
- Your prettiest old jars
- 1 large bowl
- 1 mixing spoon
And here’s how you do it:
Step 1: (After you’ve successfully eaten an entire year’s worth of jarred food in one sitting) mix all ingredients in a bowl; pour and store
Step 2: Personalize with ribbons, a card and your mom’s favorite Marina De Buchi bracelet.
Perks: created from home!
