For everything mothers do, Mother’s Day is a perfect time to say thanks. But coming up with a way to show your thanks can be a challenge. You probably want to get mom something special that she’ll treasure, something to pamper her, or something useful. Here are some gift suggestions I know my mom, and many mothers I know, would love to receive.
1. Service for four — or more!
Does your mom love to have gatherings over meals? Or enjoy entertaining outside? The PC home goods and dishware from Real Canadian Superstore for the spring are stunning! From bold colours and prints to neutral tinted clears, they have a look and feel that’s sure to put a smile on mom’s face every time she entertains…and every time she thinks about who supplied these great pieces. And at these prices, you can treat mom to multiple pieces! They are available at Real Canadian Superstores nationwide and select Loblaws, visit realcanadiansuperstore.ca.
2. One of a kind
Your mom is one of a kind, so why not delight her with a one-of-a-kind item from Artemano? From serving bowls to hanging lights, from nesting tables to tea cups, they provide nature inspired furniture and accessories that come from the Far East. Visit artemano.ca.
3. Art with heart
There is nothing like a creating art from a special photo to make mom happy on her special day. Posterjack is my go-to for turning my photos into art. They offer acrylic prints and blocks that are sure to wow! You can
use your own personal pictures or choose from a huge gallery of stock photography. Check out posterjack.ca.
4. Kitchen confidential
If your mom is anything like mine, she is probably hanging onto old serving dishes and trays. This year surprise her with something new that’s functional and also brightens up her table. I love the KitchenAid nesting ceramic four-piece set in almond cream, kitchenaid.ca.
5. Home oasis
When you’re not sure what to get mom, and just need to have inspiration hit, take a trip to Bouclair. They have so many cute and inspiring pieces to choose from. This year my favourite might just be their new mugs just in time for Mother’s Day. Find them at bouclair.com.
6. Perfect pillows
I may be a bit biased here, but I think adding a pop of colour in the form of a pillow is a great way to spice up any decor. My line of throw pillows is fully washable, including the cover and the filling; toss the pillow in the washing machine and it comes out looking like new. Every pillow has hypoallergenic down-like feather filling, is reversible, cruelty-free, and recyclable. The Jo Alcorn Collection is available on Etsy.
7. Wicker wonders
Gone is the wicker of the 70s! Take a stroll through wicker emporium and you’ll instantly know what I mean. While you can still find a classic wicker chair, today’s wicker emporium is completely different. Stores offer gorgeous solid wood furniture and lovely home decor accessories. From vases and baskets to candles and linens this store promises to delight. Visit wickeremporium.ca.
