Give more this Mother's Day

Fairtrade Mother's Day Lilies

Sometimes it can be easy to forget to say thanks to mum for all the lovely things she does for us throughout the year. So this Mother’s Day, make sure you let her know just how special she is with Sainsbury’s gorgeous collection of flowers and plants, priced from just a couple of pounds to £60.

For something really special, that will make a difference to more than just your mum's day, Sainsbury's Fairtrade Lily bouquet is not only beautiful, but comes with a great story too. Sainsbury's is the world's largest Fairtrade retailer and this huge bouquet are Fairtrade Kenyan lilies, meaning this gift will also make a difference to the lives of growers in initiatives across Kenya.

The lilies come with a gorgeous handmade gift card, created in a women's refuge in Nairobi. The refuge is a haven for women who are single mothers, victims of violence or homeless women who are looking for an opportunity to work for a better life. Using old office paper, which they recycle and roll out themselves, they hand decorate the cards and sell them to Sainsbury's, enabling them to work towards a better future.
