All I Have To Give


Mother’s Day is but a few weeks away – and while there’s few gifts greater than simply picking up the phone or sitting down to a meal with mom, it’s always worth trying to express your affection in another way. Here’s a bunch of great gift ideas that mom would love to open this Mother’s Day!

Nomad Coffee

Nomad Coffee Club – $25 / Month (and up)
If she’s a ‘momster’ before her morning brew, then treat mom to a monthly subscription from newbie coffee subscription service Nomad Coffee Club. Each month you’ll receive a scrumptious bag of whole bean coffee from a range of artisanal roasters from across Canada. Want to treat mom and dad? There’s also a two-bag box for $40, which brews over 70 cups a month.
***BONUS*** Nab 10% off of your Nomad Coffee Club subscription by entering the code ‘GIFTGUIDE’ at checkout. Coupon is good till May 11.

Wimberly WalletsCrocodile Embossed Monogrammed Wallets – $109 each @ Wimberly
Add a splash of colour and style to mom’s wardrobe with these chic, brightly hued croc wallets from Wimberly. The brand is well-known for their glam monograms that can be applied to a range of products – including beach bags, bracelets, luggage tags, keychains and more. It’s an extra special way to make mom’s gift truly hers, although be forewarned, you may not be able to get your item in time for Mother’s Day if you opt for the monogram. Solution? Buy mom a gift card and sit down with her for a fun hour or two of browsing and buying!

Lee Valley VegTrug™ PoppyVegTrug™ Poppy – $49 (until May 11) @ Lee Valley
This versatile raised planter lets mom grow on the go. Place it on your deck, balcony, or on your front porch and give mom a surprisingly roomy place to lay down some seeds. It’s great if mom’s knees or hips keep her from being comfortable from gardening in the ground – but it’s also at an ideal height for mom to garden alongside the grandkids (or kids).

Duo Duet Medium Floral EarringsDuo Duet Medium Flower Earrings – $40 USD
Given Mother’s Day takes place at the height of Spring weather, I always think of pretty floral picks for mom – like these gorgeous, handmade earrings from Duo Duet, a jewelry line out of Rhode Island. Made from ultrasuede, these feminine earrings are available in nine different rotating colours – so if mom loves what you get her for Mother’s Day, you can always look at gifting her another pair in a new shade for her birthday, anniversary, or Christmas.

Canadian Women's Foundation Mason Jar CandlesMason Jar Candles – $5.99 each @ Winners and HomeSense
If you’re looking for a wallet-friendly gift idea for your extended family – all those lovely sisters, cousins, and bffs that are also moms – this Mother’s Day, then you’ll definitely want to check out the Canadian Women’s Foundation Shop for Hope line, launching May 1st in Winners and HomeSense stores nationwide. 100% of net proceeds from the collection go to organizations which support women. And all of the oh so cute home decor and giftware items are under $25 – from these pretty faceted mason jar candles, through to totes, vases, artwork, tees and more!

Indigo Floral CollectionFloral Collection – From $15 @ Indigo
If mom loves to get into the ‘spring’ of things, then she’ll adore the pretty coordinating pieces from Indigo this season, including this dramatic, fresh garden print that adorns everything from a chic scarf to a jewelry tray to a passport case. Not into the matchy matchy? Pick one statement piece and easily mix-and-match with any of Indigo’s rather extensive lineup of accessories, like their cool fashion scarves or timeless earrings.

Murad High Performance Bodycare Mother's Day KitMurad Youth Builder Bodycare Set – $75
Mother’s Day basically means swimsuit season is *just* around the corner. Give mom a leg up by gifting her with Murad’s new, potent bodycare line, featuring four products designed to tackle key body aging concerns, including uneven skin tone and texture, loss of elasticity and firmness, and dehydration. Three of the products are actually being packaged into an awesome starter kit, to give mom a taste of what this incredible range can do – start by lathering up the stimulating cleansing clay to slough off impurities and break down oil buildup, while boosting circulation with ginger root extract and infusing your skin with rich moisture through sunflower and safflower oils. Follow it up by applying the Firming Peptide Body Treatment, which includes Glyco Firming Complex, a potent peptide blend rich in amino acids that actually has a visual impact on your skin’s firmness (the fourth product / alternative is the Murad’s new Collagen Support Body Cream, which triples your skin’s moisturization and encourages collagen production). Finally, finish things off by smoothing on their Rejuvenating AHA Hand Cream, to restore clarity, tone, and of course, keep those hands buttery soft. Murad is already well-known for their amazing face care products – so go on and give their body ones a shot too, you won’t be disappointed!
