Mom’s The Word

Indigo Mother's Day Gift Guide 2016

Have you scoped out Indigo’s selection of Mother’s Day gifts? If you’re still looking for plenty of gifting inspiration this week, be sure to check out their online and in-store selections for some top notch gift ideas that can make their way to you lightning fast. I’ve picked out a few of my faves below!

Mother’s Day Gift Boxes – From $65
Full disclosure so your heart ain’t broken – these gift sets featuring three hot titles for mom plus additional giftables have pretty much sold out already. Each set offered some great savings when bundled together, but you can still draw inspiration from them and craft your own sets, by adding in Indigo’s amazing giftware – from cozy scarves to divine candles – a la carte.

Time for Tea Set – $24.50 
If mom loves a good cuppa in the morning, this cute set has all the fixins’ she’ll need to brew one up – including a single-serve diffuser, a spoon for stirring (or scooping loose leaves into the diffuser), and an adorable mug celebrating the best mom ever!

Herbivore Botanicals Blue Tansy Resurfacing Mask – $55
Give mom a refreshed look with this awesome all natural mask. Infused with luxe Blue Tansy oil, this mask gently sloughs away dead skin to reveal a brilliant, bright under layer.

12mm Mother of Pearl Choker Necklace – $110
The jewelry lineup at Indigo is gorgeous people – and available at all sorts of price points! Squarely in the middle rests this Made in Canada Mother of Pearl necklace, rendered in hues of plum and grey (although it does come in two other hues).

Kate Spade Large Jewelry Box – $80
Add a little pop of colour with this lacquered jewelry box from Kate Spade. Made extra festive with a gold bow clasp, this cute box comes in an array of shades.
