My Top Picks for Mother's Day Gifts

Saturday 9 May 2015


Mothers' Day is that one special day every year to celebrate moms and the women who teach us, inspire us, and help us grow.  Every mother's day I celebrate my Mom and my grandmas.  I try to find them something special that they will love, but that doesn't mean finding the perfect gift is easy!  Keep reading for my top picks for Mother's Day Gifts...oh and PS.  Mother's Day is Sunday, as in tomorrow, so if you haven't yet picked out something special you should get on that!

The L'Occitane Pretty En Provence mini set is filled with beautiful little treats for your mom, including their almond oil which I love!  Plus, how sweet is that bag? $40

Spoil your mom with her namesake polish.  While there is no guarentee that Julep (or Zoya) has her name, it is worth taking a look!  Bonus points if her name polish is in a colour that she would love. Shown here is one of my favourite Julep polishes, Shelly. $14 regular/ $11.20 Maven

I came across Archimallows at a Holt Renfrew pop-up shop at Yorkdale today and made a custom six pack for my mom and grabbed one for me to snack on.  Not only are they delicious, but they look divine!  Thankfully you can order online, because these just may become my go-to hostess gift.  $10 for 6, $20 for a mason jar of 12.  I love these because they are a little unexpected, yet are super feminine and elegant.  Based in Vancouver, who doesn't love supporting a small Canadian business?

This Indigo Mini Travel Case in "Daydream" is stunning to look at, and perfect for a mom on the go!  I use something similar to hold my jewellery when I travel, this would also look beautiful on her vanity!  Sold out online, there are still some in store!

Another Indigo find (the front section with the little pretty things is my favourite place to find little gifts!) is this beautiful floral jewellery tray.  I can see my mom placing her rings, earrings, and small necklaces on here.  A touch of elegance for every day use! $19.50

My (final) Indigo find for this post is this stunning blue Painted Paisley Reversible Tote Bag.  I love this for casual weekends. $110

ela x Burt's Bees x H Project has a beautiful gift set containing three Burt's Bees lip crayons and a stunning floral zip pouch.  Retailing for $50, proceeds benefit a bee focused charity making this a thoughtful gift through and through.  Perfect for a mom who loves flowers or nature, it is a chance to honour a cause close to her heart while spoiling her on the spot!  I picked this up for my mom and am debating picking up a second one for me!  Learn more about this special project here.

Grandmas deserve to be celebrated on Mothers' Day too!  In my family we always take care of our grandmas!  I picked up this yummy little chocolate tin for both of my grandmas because I know they both love Purdy's, and I know they will both love the beautiful bird and cherry blossoms on the tin.  A wonderful way to celebrate Grandma (plus if you are lucky she will probably offer you a chocolate, so you know, win-win!).  Sold out online, I have seen it still in stock in store.  Best to call ahead!

Of course, gifts don't always have to cost money.  A hug, and telling your mom why she is so special to you is always appreciated.

Now, you could top that hug off with breakfast in bed...just saying!

How are you celebrating your mom this year?  Happy Mother's Day xoxo
