celebrate :: Mother's Day Gift Ideas

The only thing Mom wants is some time you. And maybe a brunch or a new bag. Or perhaps a jewel to add to her collection. Just promise, at the very least you’ll call to say ‘I love you’. Here are some gift ideas to share the love.

Green thumb
Put a little green into city life by registering you and mom for workshop at Salisbury Greenhouse. Learn how to create your own spring container masterpiece using colour, texture, scale, plant placement and plant compatibility. Workshops are $10 each plus the materials you use. 

Pretty as a picture
No moment is too small for an oversized print. Just make sure the final product is a framed, gallery-worthy print that will satisfy your mom’s inner art critic and make her tear-up at the memories. The best place in town for your photo on art paper or stretched canvas is Vivid Print

Family jewels
Every mom needs a smattering of jewels. Give her collection a lift with a beautiful family ring from Concept Jewelry. Personalize it entirely by choosing your gold, stones and design. Ooh, and it’s shiny!

In the bag
Moms are always there in a clutch. And, she deserves a clutch as durable, beautiful and soft as she is. Look no further than a leather bag designed by Laura Vela, available exclusively at Coup Boutique.

Hostess with the mostest
Your mom loves to cook. She deserves the cutest, bestest apron ever. One-of-a-kind aprons by Beans & Rice are so charming, cute and clever that your might “forget” to take it off before sitting down to dinner.

Tea Time
What your mom really needs is a little Tea-LC. Visit a loose-leaf tea shop like Cally’s Tea or David’s Tea, and carefully select a combination of varieties that recall childhood memories. Tell a story by attaching little notes: “Cherry Blossom Tea - in fond memory of our trip to Victoria when the cherry blossoms bloomed.”
