Mama’s Day Mondays: Last-Minute Edition 2012

Mother’s Day is literally just around the corner – and don’t tell me I haven’t given you plenty of ideas over the last couple of weeks. But if you’re part of the procrastination generation out there, you may still be scrambling for that perfect gift. Never fear, the Canadian Gift Guide is here with some last-minute picks to get you sorted out for Mother’s Day in mere minutes.

Primula Tea 12 Flowering Tea Pods & Glass Teapot Set – $36.99 @ Bed, Bath & Beyond
I’ve written about flowering tea before, but this all-in-one kit makes this eye-popping gift that much more convenient for any tea drinkers in your life. If you’re unfamiliar, all you do is pop an herbal flower bud into hot water. Within minutes it blooms into a striking flower and transforms ordinary H2O into soothing herbal teas. This kit comes with 12 different varieties to tantalize mom’s tastebuds, and a glass teapot to watch the magic happen before your eyes.

LEGGAT Ankle-Strap Flats – $70 @ Aldo
It’s not even cliche at this point to suggest that most women love shoes – it’s straight up fact. These ladylike flats are perfect for spring, but will carry any lady through to the summer with their open-sided frame and delicate ankle straps. It’s about as close as you can get to sandals in the workplace if mom works somewhere stern, and also makes a great day-to-evening option. Simply pick the palette that’ll best work with her wardrobe and call it a day.

Happy Mother’s Day Tin – $56.95 @ Lush
If your mom is manic for Lush (like mine), then she’ll absolutely flip over this groovy gift tin laden with body care goodies. From all-time classics like the exfoliating, invigorating Ocean Salt scrub and best-selling uber moisturizer Dream Cream, to all-new, limited edition items including all 3 brand new reusable bubble bar wands, this is a instant gift of ultimate pampering. Bonus – it’s far less expensive and has a way longer life span than a plain ol’ spa day.

Tattooed Stainless Steel Cuffs – $49.95 – $64.95 @ Ben Moss
Mother’s Day jewellery need not be fussy & filled with sentiment – at least, not according to Ben Moss, which has an extensive line of unique stainless steel cuffs bedecked with an array of abstract and literal designs. Some are meant to elicit tattoos (think: hearts, lips, and tribal designs) while others offer a more delicate, artsy take (spray paint, abstract florals, and art deco swirls). The one-size-fits all approach means you’ll knock this one right outta the park.

Clinique Happy Summer Spray – $74 @ Clinique
Every woman should have a signature scent, so why not make it Clinique’s sun-kissed evolution of their legendary Happy perfume? Available for a limited time only in a Pucci-esque print, the classic fragrance is imbued with Hawaiian flowers, blackberry blossom, and pink grapefruit for a sparkling scent that’ll bring a serious smile to mom’s face.
