If you’re anything like me, the thing you want most for Mother’s Day is for your kids to wait until after 8am before bringing you breakfast in bed. It’s my official day for a sleep-in and while I love my coffee, homemade gifts and cards in bed, I’d rather they not arrive at 6am. A morning snuggle and a day spent together is more than enough to celebrate my day as a mom but I certainly am open to a gift or two (wink, wink). So I’ve put together a Mother’s Day gift guide with a few items (all available in Canada) that I wouldn’t mind getting with my early morning latté.
I found a few of these items on Outgift. It’s a great new website that lets you search for a gift based on the recipient (gender, age, relationship to you) as well as by the occasion. If you sign up for the free membership, you can even store recipient profiles and annual reminders so you never forget to buy the perfect gift!
I’ve been eyeing this Montreal-based company for quite some time now, particularly the Mama necklace. Also available in Maman and Mother, you can choose between 14K yellow, rose or white gold as well as sterling silver or gold vermeil. $150, available at Litzi.love and Finishtheoutfit.com
With summer quickly approaching, we all want to put our best skin forward. This coconut milk based bath soak will leave your skin soft and hydrated, and all you need to do is indulge in a warm, relaxing bath! $24.28/8oz, available at Nordstrom.com.
This gift was actually on my wish list last year and I can’t live without it. A sufferer of migraines, I keep this in my purse and use the Peppermint Halo Remedy the minute I feel one coming on. If you don’t know this Canadian, all-natural company check it out. $39.95, available at Saje.com.
I’ve seen many moms sporting their kids initials on necklaces but I think these rings are the next best thing. Made from 18K gold, they are thin enough to be stacked or can be worn on their own. Sign me up. $93.06 each, available at NeimanMarcus.com
Every mom needs an anti-aging mask to ward off the stress our kids may have caused… This one is filled with superfoods like kale, spinach and spirulina and is 100% natural. $55, available at Sephora.com.
