A gift guide of little luxuries for Mother’s Day


When it comes to celebrating the almighty mom, there’s no way all of our gratitude and love can be contained in one humble day. But every Mother’s Day, we do our best to try! We honour the person who spends her life doing things for others, by indulging her in a few extravagances she might not get for herself. Here are some ideas on how to show your thanks on her special day.

For mom on the go: Soccer practice, swimming lessons, playdates…if your mom rocks at making sure everyone gets where they need to be, then add a touch of style to her efforts. A flirty travel mug will elevate her must-have java to accessory status.  A cell phone case in spring’s hottest shades of pastel will make organizing that oh-so-important digital calendar a lot more fun!

For the brand new mama: Mother’s Day is extra special for the newbie mom…but odds are she’s too busy to notice, what with the lack of sleep and around the clock feedings! Surprise her with something to make her feel beautiful. A gorgeous diaper bag (or an oversized purse that could double as one) will amp up her everyday look with minimal effort. And pampering is a must – pair a promise to watch the baby with natural beauty products just for her.

For the Food Network mom: Is the kitchen the heart of your home? For the mom who loves to whip up baked goodies and add dashes of extra love to new recipes, think treats for her domain. An apron in a fun print is both pretty and practical, while bright and cheery cooking tools will make her smile with every dish. 

For the sophisticated mom: They may be life’s simple pleasures but this mom will appreciate the extra touch of luxury.  A refined stationery set in a chic painterly print will add elegance to her correspondence, while a soft and luxurious throw blanket takes curling up with a book to a whole new level.

For the mom who has it all: What do you get the woman who has everything she needs? Let her wear her heart (or any of her favourite qualities) on her sleeve with a Pandora bracelet and personalized charms chosen just for her. And don’t forget that a St. Vital Centre Giftcard is the perfect gift to celebrate mom, treating her to both an outing and a little something special.
