This Mother’s Day, we celebrate the act of ritual. Why? Because Motherhood is filled with them. From blessing ceremonies and baby showers to birthing exercises to postpartum healing, the ways women prepare for motherhood are sacred. Rituals are carried on as our children grow and we share family traditions from past generations, or perhaps create new customs pulled from other cultures and ideologies that may resonate more closely. Despite which kinds of rituals you may practice, one thing’s for certain: Mothers deserve to be honored and celebrated.
This carefully curated Mother’s Day Gift Guide features many brands owned by both women and moms. We hope this help inspire you to treat Mom with some special goods that will surely elevate all kinds of self-care rituals in her life—from peaceful walks with the dog to relaxing baths and skincare regimes to treasured smoke sessions. Help the mom in your life feel the love this Mother’s Day and every day.

Summerland Ceramic Bongs / From $195
Summerland Ceramic Bongs are perfect for those with a more minimalist style. Constructed in small batches in Northern California, these handmade smoking vessels are truly works of art. We love the organic nature of this “stonerware,” which is reminiscent of ancient, simpler times. When not in use, these bongs blend in with the environment and could easily be mistaken for a sculpture or vase. The makers behind Summerland treasure the ritual inherent to cannabis as much as they do building these, and they want you to too.
“Designed by the ritual of connection with nature, our pieces are built from the Earth itself. Sustainability, function and form are equivalent to us, and we do not settle for less.”
Now that you’ve upgraded your smoking rituals, keep the good stuff safely stored away from the kiddos. The Ally Storage Box was founded by two moms who wanted to give people a way to consume cannabis responsibly in their homes, without sacrificing convenience or aesthetics. Sleek and discreet, the versatile, lockable storage box is completely unassuming. It’s stackable, locks in scent and is fridge and freezer safe. This makes a practical yet thoughtful gift that Mom can enjoy using every day and rest easy knowing the youngsters won’t be sneaking into her stash when she’s not around.

Skincare rituals that give Mom that beautiful glow are an easy way to show her some love. The Activated CBD Serum is made with the combination of Ojai Energetics’ patented water-soluble, fastest-acting CBD technology and Annmarie Skin Care’s signature wildcrafted ingredients.
The serum is packed with high-performance seed oils, antioxidant-rich botanicals, and synergistic plant stem cells to help support healthy skin. Add in CBD, which is ideal for aging skin, as its anti-inflammatory properties soothe irritation and contribute to a more balanced, even skin tone. With powerful antioxidant properties, CBD also helps ward off wrinkles and fine lines. This all-natural line truly taps into the power of Mother Nature. Available in trial and full sizes.
“The experience of our Activated CBD Serum is unique and powerful. You take a deep breath as you feel your skin drinking in the rich hydration of your serum. Now you’re connected to age-old wisdom—to the mothers, lovers and friends who laughed, worked and shared life with you. All who shared an intuitive knowing of the whole-body magic of the hemp plant.”
Going for a walk is an easy way to get outside, breathe in some fresh air and engage all the senses. A therapeutic way to reset and ground yourself, walking routines have been around since the beginning of time. It could be Mom’s special alone time, where she takes a puff and soaks in the sounds of nature. And for all the fur moms out there, we know you take this time extra seriously. If your partner or friend is a dedicated cat or dog mom, consider upping her walks with these all-hemp braided leashes from WigglyWoos. Hemp is soft, strong and durable, making it the ideal textile for leashes. Each leash is individually made, hand-spliced and whipped. Plus, you can customize them with three different classy colored trigger snap options and a wide range of hemp twine colors.
“Nature is the inspiration for our timeless designs and time-trusted techniques. Whether you live in the urban center of the city, beachside, on the mountain, or in the suburbs, there is nothing like the open air and your dog at your side.”
