Whether it’s your mom, mother-in-law, grandmother, aunt, or other maternal figure, we’ve all got someone to thank on Mother’s Day! Show them some love by giving them one of these great gift ideas!

Let your mom sleep in and enjoy her lounge time in a stylish lounge set! You can also add to her relaxation by making her breakfast in bed (try out this recipe for breakfast casserole from Brunch with Babs, or a lighter acai bowl), and finish off with a rejuvenating foot massage using some essential oils. Check out this post for some massage oil recipes and tips!
A Feel-good Shoe

These shoes look good and make a difference in our carbon footprint, too! Allbirds are made with renewable materials like wool and sugar cane, grown through regenerative agriculture. The company has made a commitment not just to be carbon-neutral by 2030, but to go beyond to become carbon positive. We love their feminine, eucalyptus Tree Breezers and their light, machine-washable Tree Runners. Grab a pair for your mom, or even for yourself!

Does your mom have a sweet tooth? Grab some organic chocolate from Hu, where they strive to make chocolate and snacks made for humans! They aim to keep the ingredient list short, and feature paleo and vegan products, sourcing Fair Trade cocoa and Fair Trade cocoa butter. If your mom wants to go beyond eating the chocolate to finding out how it’s made, local Toronto chocolate maker SOMA offers not just quality chocolate, drinks and gelato, but also in-person tastings!
Quality Time Exploring

If your mom feels loved through quality time spent together, take her out to a local farmer’s market, like the Farmer’s Market at Brickworks in Toronto! Supporting local farmers and small businesses while treating your mom to organic produce, locally grown flowers or homemade baked goods is a great way to show her you love her.

It’s gardening season, but your mom can also grow herbs all year-round with these small glass hydro grow kits for basil, thyme and rosemary. If she likes to garden outdoors, get her a gardening set and have her check out these tips for how to keep critters out of your garden.

Keep waste out of landfills by purchasing a handmade, upcycled accessory from an Etsy seller! For the boho chic mom, try these bags made from re-purposed upholstery fabric samples created by Ivy and Eloise, or if she likes chunky jewelry, these unique rings are made from upcycled silverware created by Maiden Of Mischief Co.

Pamper your mom with some natural facial care and makeup products, like some clean makeup from Ilia or Kosas. If you’re looking for a one-stop shop for clean beauty, try the Detox Market, where they curate organic, clean beauty brands and offers facials using local products from Three Ships and Province Apothecary. You can package your items in a cute gift basket, and include a bamboo facecloth (try the one from our 3-piece set) to wash it all away!

A Cute New Outfit
Give your mom the gift of a wardrobe refresh! Try a cardigan or hoodie to layer over warm-weather pieces like a tank top or t-shirt for those cool May evenings. For a one-and-done outfit, you could also grab a cute jumpsuit, like our new Marlee, or an easy, breezy t-shirt dress like our new Teagan!
