Mother's Day Gift Guide
Posted: Apr 26, 2021

It’s that time of year again – flowers are in bloom; birds are chirping at the break of dawn – and Mother’s Day is just around the corner. And as we approach another Mother’s Day in lockdown, one thing is for sure – moms are strong.

We want to help you make the moms in your life feel extra loved this year. Local businesses have pulled out all the stops to make it possible. With curbside pickup, online shopping, and local delivery, you can grab the perfect gift just in time for May 9th.

The Gift of a Day at the Spa

It’s probably been some time since mom has been to the spa – and there’s nothing like a good pampering. With bubble bath, candles, and a cozy robe, you can create a luxurious spa-like atmosphere right at home.

Pure Boutique has a line of soy candles that will whisk mom away from her day-to-day. Lake Huron Sunset, By the Fire, or Beach Day will transport her to a cottage campfire, a sunset at the lake house, or warm day on the beach. And while the candle flickers, bath bombs, scrubs, soaps, bubble baths, and salts from The Handmade House pamper and soothe her skin.

Then, mom can wrap up in an item from Burlington designer, Joseph Tassoni’s recently released (and luxuriously comfortable) spa line.  Robes and lounge pants, bamboo towels and even a scrunchie.

And for when spas officially open up – you can grab Mom a gift certificate at the new D-Derm Aesthetics who are currently offering service promos just for Mother’s Day!

The Gift of Food

Bring the restaurant experience home. Create a menu, dress-up, lay out the table linens and fancy china – and give mom the gift of a night off. Choose from mom’s favourite restaurant or try something new – there are endless takeout options available (and many restaurants will have Mother’s Day specials just like Spencer’s Mother’s Day Meal kits!) Don’t forget dessert! Many of our downtown shops are offering chocolates, ice cream, and more!

Speaking of chocolate, La Crème de La Crème Creamery is offering their popular Belgian chocolate dipped strawberries. One dozen of carefully selected strawberries dipped in your choice of milk or dark Belgian chocolate.

Or, if mom likes something savoury, you can reserve a Mother’s Day board from The Block Co., featuring charcuterie for two and a bottle of wine for $100.

A Gift Made Easy

Made with L-O-V-E for mama, Styled Lounge has created two wrapped and ready-to-go gift sets just for mom. Including their favourite products, you’ll find everything from a bottle or red or white wine (mama’s choice), facial in a jar, gourmet popcorn, a Summer Peach soy candle, 23K gold collagen eye masks, and so much more! All products (with the exception of the wine) are locally or Canadian made.  An easy gift that mom will LOVE. View gift box here $109, view gift bag here ($69).

You can also scoop up some PJ Salvage jammies from Joelle’s or Bocana Boutique that mom will want to LIVE in.  While their prints are fun, their motto is to provide the comfiest and coziest pajama sets – and we’re here for it.
