Mother's Day is just over a week away, and it's a holiday that creates the perfect excuse to spoil our mom's and show our appreciation for all that they do for us. This year, we've compiled some of our favourite gift ideas that we think every mom will love. We hope you enjoy them!
A new piece of jewelry makes the perfect gift from a daughter or husband on Mother's Day. We love our Amarilo jewelry line, which includes pieces that are all crafted to either be easily layered or worn delicately on their own...from necklaces and rings to bracelets and earrings. The Opal Initial necklace is timeless and the personalized initial detail makes it a great gift for mom. From the beautiful opal stone and the 14K gold fill chain, this necklace is that little bit of luxe that will make your mom feel extra special this year.
2. A new scented candle
We're in love with our new candles by Boy Smells. From the three scents we have in stock, there is not one scent we don't love. They're hand poured in Los Angeles and each candle is a propretary blend of beeswax and coconut oil...so as you can imagine, they smell divine. They are also a great piece to add a cool accent to a coffee or bedside table. You might just want to pick one up for yourself!
3. Luxury PJ's
As they say, there is no better feeling than crawling into bed after a long day. So why not treat your mom to a luxury PJ set by Eberjey to make the end of those long days even better. These pyjamas are by far the softest, most comfortable pyjamas we have ever owned...Shelby swears by them! Made from a luxe spandex and jersey fabric, these PJ’s are incredibly high quality and make for an amazing gift! Plus, they keep you at the perfect temperature all night...so no more tossing and turning on those humid summer nights! Your mom will love these!
Treat your mom to a mother/daughter manicure and pedicure. In Oakville, we're so lucky to have some amazing spas with great mani/pedi treatments. We love The Ten Spot and Zen Bar in Oakville! They both provide a great manicure/pedicure combowith all the latest spring and summer polish colours! Is there really a better gift than spending an afternoon at the spa with your mom or daughter?
5. A great read
The gift of relaxation also comes with a lazy afternoon diving into a great book. If your mom is a reader or is looking for a great book to start, we recommend picking up Liane Moriarty’s Big Little Lies as a gift for Mother's Day this year. The book follows the lives of three mothers and how they navigate different issues in their lives with a strong focus on motherhood and friendship. If your mom is drawn to fiction novels that are filled with suspense, then this book is a great gift. Amanda just finished and said it was a major page turner that she couldn't put down!
6. A stunning bouquet
You can never go wrong with flowers on Mother's Day to put a smile on your mom's face and brighten up a room. A beautiful flower arrangement from Fiori on Lakeshore is agreat gift for mom...but you have to be quick, as their famous arrangements go fast!
7. Day planner
What better way to help your mom organize her hectic schedule than with a unique day planner. This Happiness Planner is a little different than most, and it doesn’t necessarily help you plan your day to day activities, but helps you outline personal goals and note all the good stuff! This gift is a little more personal and sentimental but makes a really sweet gift for your mom!
8. Mother's Day Brunch with the Family
This has become a yearly tradition on Mother's Day to get everyone together for brunch and give Mother's Day gifts and just celebrate mom! We love Kerr Street Cafe in Oakville... They have the best menu, but they don't take reservations, so you have to go early to get a spot...but it's SO worth it. Noble Bistro is also a great option, and takes reservations if you're looking to do something less casual.
What girl isn't obsessed with shoes?! If you're like us, you'll never pass up on adding another pair to the collection! Our new Star Mela sandals make a statement, making them the perfect "wow" gift for your mom this year.
10. Weekend Getaway
Wherever it is, it's always nice to escape for the weekend and have some mother daughter bonding time. Surprise your mom with a weekend at St. Anne's Spa, a trip to the Drake Devonshire Inn in Prince Edward County, or to wine taste and see a play in Niagara On The Lake. We are lucky in Oakville to have tons of options for weekend trips that are just a short drive away, so pick somewhere you'd love to spend a weekend and surprise your mom!
