2014 Mother’s Day Gift Guide


Mother’s Day is coming up next month!

Which means it’s time to go shopping for yo’ momma. I’ve compiled a list of fun Mother’s Day Gift Ideas from around the web:

Beauty Goods from Birchbox – Beauty subscription boxes are perfect for Moms who are looking to integrate a few new things into their daily routine. $60 buys Mom a 6-month subscription of beauty samples delivered right to her door from Birchbox. It’s the gift that keeps on giving.


Bespoke Ballet Flats – I am in love with these made to measure ballet flats (from $178) from Poppy Barley in Calgary. Is Mom always complaining about how her feet hurt? Treat her to a perfect pair of flats that she will cherish forever. A gift card allows her to customize for width, style, colour and of course the perfect fit. Poppy Barley will send along a measuring tape in the mail so you can measure and order instantly.


Cute Sweats – If your mom is retired and doing a lot more yoga and activity then ever before, give her workout gear a refresh with this cute Sweat Half Zip ($79) from Lucy Activewear. It’s perfect for keeping her cozy on her early morning workouts, power walks or hikes.


iPad Mini – Does Mom have a tablet yet? If not, treat her to the very easy-to-use iPad Mini ($285). The size is perfect for her weekend trips and travels. Plus you can pre-load it with a few books and bookmark her favourite websites and newspapers.



A New Bike – When was the last time your Mom replaced her old mountain bike? This cute little Willow Cruiser ($580) from Brooklyn Bicycles is perfect for trips to the Farmer’s Market or an afternoon ride on the water. Just make sure you add a high-tech U-lock to keep this thing safe.


Personalized Cottage & Beach Tote Bag – Order this tote bag ($30) from Land’s End soon as it can take 4-7 business days to ship. I ordered one for my mother-in-law and she loved it because of all the great pockets to stash magazines, water and other cottage-going essentials. This tote is sturdy and durable, but not so precious that it can’t be thrown into the washing machine when it gets dirty.


Get Cooking – I picked up The Healthy Slow Cooker: 135 Gluten-Free Recipes for Health & Wellness ($18) and I was pretty impressed with all the meal ideas and minimal prep time. If your Mom is always on the go and super busy. This slow cooker cook book & maybe a new slow cooker will bring more healthy, nourishing meals to the table.
