Lifestyle: A Mother's Day Gift Guide

Lifestyle: Finding the Perfect Gift for Mom

Mother's Day is coming up and as usual, I say the best gift is time spent together with a shared experience.

I still feel that to be true but I think with everyone in quarantine, this year a little tangible gift would go a long way to make the mamas feel appreciated and to encourage a little self care.
We need it these days more then ever before.

I've rounded up some of my favourite picks for a sweet little mama's day spoiling in case you are looking for some ideas for the lady or ladies in your life.

Support local restaurants by using Skip the Dishes, (a Canadian company) to order mom a special dinner from a far. Simply plug in her home address, to see what local eateries offer delivery near her. Many of the restaurants offer free delivery if you spend $20 or $30 dollars, which makes this a winning gift because you are supporting the hospitality industry, while treating your mom.

Support a local spa by buying a gift card for a future service. At Vaughan-based, Freedom Medispa, you can take advantage of their amazing skincare offers and gift sets by ordering online and arranging curb-side pickup. They also do free local delivery.

My pick is this gift set with a Rose Quartz Face Roller and Purity Marula Oil.

I love Saje Wellness for beautiful diffusers  that double as a piece of art. Diffusing scents is a method of aromatherapy and has many health benefits while promoting relaxation.

Remember that when you buy essential oils, you want to only buy pure oils and I trust Doterra for that.

Next on my list would be some pretty and put together lounge wear. Since we are all at home, being comfy and cute in sweats is definitely top of mind. I love this Adidas pair from Amazon.

While Social Distancing, a great book seems like it would be appreciated. I love these options below to encourage the mamas to engage in some self care.

To track mom's steps on all the hikes and walks she may be going on, I'd highly recommend a smart-watch like a Fitbit. You can also add a pretty band to go along with it if you like.

Another idea for a great gift would be a classic pair of shades. With the weather changing, she will definitely need these while she relaxes on the porch or balcony. 

And if mama likes making cocktails and other fancy drinks, then my pick for her would be a Sodastream unit so she can make her own fizzy drinks and sodas at home.

If wine is more her style, consider having some delicious wines delivered to her door! Many VQA wineries in Ontario are offering free delivery right now, so support these local businesses and order from them directly!  Some of my favourites are Trius Winery, Vineland Estates, Kew Vineyards,
and Pillitteri Estates. It will likely be awhile before we can enjoy some time at the wineries themselves, but definitely looking forward to ordering some of their delicious wines to enjoy from home.

Hope this little list gives you some ideas on how you can send mom something sweet for Mother's Day.

Personally, I love receiving a thoughtful note and some kind of small treat. The real gift is the love you share with your loved ones so I'm sure whichever way you choose to express that, you'll make her day!

Wishing all the moms a relaxing weekend full of special moments with those you love! xo
