Can you believe that Mother’s Day is only a month away?
Jen and I have an annual tradition of organizing a Mother’s day brunch at Hot House in Toronto. We invite our close female friends and family and our mom’s of course and spend the day eating, laughing and drinking mimosas. I’m relatively confident this year, we will have to celebrate Mother’s Day from a distance. Not ideal, but we will take our tradition virtual, and hopefully, we can all still enjoy the time together regardless of the setting.
Although, I value presence over presents on any holiday. Gifts can definitely help put a smile on someone’s face, especially this year. So, Jen and I have put together a list of ten gift ideas for mother’s day of things that we love and hopefully will provide ideas and inspiration for you.
- Bedside smartphone vase
We hadn’t seen anything like this before and thought it was a great idea for someone who loves flowers. It’s understated, and we love items that serve a dual purpose. Uncommon Goods
2. Fab Fit Fun box
A Fab Fit Fun box is like the gift that keeps on giving. You can sign-up for a quarterly or annual subscription and cancel and cancel at any time. Fab Fit Fun
3. Extendable bathtub caddy
I love taking baths (when I have the time which I have a lot of now). This caddy allows me to have all my favourite things right in front of me. My phone for mood music, a glass of wine or gin and a book or magazine. Not to mention less risk of any of those items falling into the water lol. Umbra
4. Overnight foot care kit
Since none of us can go out for pedicures for Mother’s day. This is a perfect DIY foot care kit and the best part – it works while you sleep. Uncommon Goods
5. Pom pom slippers
I love slippers, and these ones are a bright, fun colour with a big ole’ pom pom on top. They remind me of the ones my grandmother used to make when I was a little girl. They also come in a few different colours. Indigo
6. Diffuser and oil blend set
Diffusers are a great gift and can be an alternative to candles. Essentials oils have so many benefits, from mood improvement, stress reduction to making your house smell good (without the chemicals). Indigo
7. Gratitude journal
I think gratitude journals are an excellent way for each of us to reflect on all the things we are grateful for in our life. Especially with everything thing that is going on in the world right now. It’s so important to be thankful for what we have.. Indigo
8. Custom cutting board
If you know a mom that loves to cook. This cutting board is a great option. You can customize in a variety of ways, and it would be an excellent addition to any kitchen. Etsy
9. Custom silhouette
This is a unique idea, and a few silhouettes would make for an impressive photo wall in your home. You could do a silhouette of your mom, grandchildren or yourself. Etsy
10. Fresh flower delivery
We couldn’t forget about the simplest, tried and true gift. My mom loves fresh flowers, and I know that if that is all she received, she would be beyond happy. Bloomex
Don’t forget shipping is going to take a little longer this year. So, whatever you decide to order, definitely order quickly if you want it to arrive before Mother’s Day!
