2015 Mother’s Day Gifts + Ideas


Mother’s Day is just around the corner! If you’re looking to order a special gift for Mom, this is probably the time to do it when you factor in time for shipping. I’ve done a bit looking around online and these are a few of my favourite gift ideas for Mother’s Day. Enjoy!

Candles that Give Back – Treat Mom to a few yummy scented candles from The Bridgewater Candle Company this Mother’s Day. Each candle purchased helps feeds a child in need. So not only will your Mother’s house smell great and be fully stocked with fresh candles, you’ll be giving back at the same time. These artisanal candles are also made in America with a lead-free wick and a natural soy wax blend.


Weekend Duffle – Give your Mom’s weekend bag an upgrade with this gorgeous Saffron Ikat Traveler Duffel ($148) from TOMS. This bright and cherry yellow pattern is perfect for the cottage or a summer road trip with ample pockets, reinforced handles and a removable shoulder strap. It also makes for a great carry-on bag. With every bag purchased, TOMS will help provide a safe birth for a mother and baby in need, how’s that for the perfect mother’s day gift?


The Ultimate Kitchen Appliance – Is your Mother an amazing cook? Does she love to bake? Go for the splurge and treat her to a Kitchenaid Stand Mixer to help save her time in the kitchen. The possibilites with this gift is endless and I’m sure you’ll benefit from all the baking she will be doing!


An e-Reader – If your Mother’s an avid reader, she may appreciate receiving an e-reader like the Amazon Kindle. They’ve come down quite a bit on price and if your Mom does a lot of traveling or goes to the cottage on the weekend, this will definitely help keep her bag lighter and make for the perfect gift idea.


New Make-up Brushes – Has your Mom been using the same make-up brushes for years? Upgrade her beauty tools with this Double Time Double Ended Brush Set from Sephora. This six-piece, limited-edition set features double-ended rose gold makeup brushes that rolls up easily in a cream pebbled clutch – perfect for the busy and traveling retired Mom.


Multi-Purpose Turkish Towel – These Turkish towels from Nordstrom can be used as a picnic blanket, a wrap, a towel, a tablecloth or a throw for your Mother’s patio set. They come in a wide range of colour and are incredibly soft. You can even have the towel monogrammed for an extra personal touch.


A Terrarium – Instead of flowers this Mother’s Day, consider a terrarium gift in a cool geometric shape. You can go ahead and create one for your mom, or perhaps you can round-up the ingredients and plants together and spend an afternoon crafing a unique terrarium. These faceted holders are available at West Elm. It’s also the perfect low-maintenance plant for her office.
