Chic Canadian Gifts for Every Mom
Posted: May 07 2015
Whether shopping for your own mother, grandmother, sister, wife or friend, here’s some Canadian-made gift inspiration for the women in your life that inspire you.
Mother’s day is just around the corner and calendars filling up with baby showers – what a great excuse to show that amazing mom or mom-to-be in your life just how much you appreciate all she is and does.
Whether she loves to cook or simply loves to eat, some fun, artistic plates can really jazz up mealtime. Go for something tongue-in-cheek and unexpected, like these fun Spaghetti and Meatballs plates by Said the King ($25) or this Pizza Plate ($75) by Toronto artist Jaqueline Poirier. Unique plates are great conversation pieces when hosting and every time she sees it she’ll think of you.
The Netflix Addict
Like any mom, this one is busy and me-time is hard to come by, but when it does, she likes to shut down and escape into a good story. A cozy Cambie Design Blanket ($125) or fun set of linens like these Get Up, Make Out pillow cases ($65-70) are perfect for a lazy Sunday evening spent binge-watching Bloodlines in bed.
This lady works her tail off – she could use a spa day but with her busy schedule, it’s not going to happen any time soon. So how about the gift of an at-home spa day? Bring the spa home to her with candles and bath products, so she can unwind the way likes best – on her own terms, and on her own schedule. Try: Harlow’s Essential Oil Candle in Soft ($26), aromatherapy like Aromacentric’s Roll On Therapy ($32), and Gold Apothecary’s Eucalyptus Bath Salts ($25).
The Relic Hunter
For the bargain hunting, vintage obsessed mom, hit the antique shops or find a well curated collection, and she’ll be grateful for the thought and effort. You can’t go wrong with something for the bar – an antique martini shaker ($35) for instance goes hand-in-hand with trendy retro cocktails.
Chances are, the mom-to-be in your life already has a closet full of baby clothes and accessories. For something a little different, introduce her to locally made, all-natural products to be enjoyed by both mom and baby. We recommend trying Ella’s Botanicals Oh Baby Lotion ($15) and Baby Line Bottoms Up ($15). Also from Ella’s Botanicals, Bubblemania ($18) is a bodywash, shampoo and bubble bath all in one.
