Stuck on what to give for Mother's Day? I totally understand because each year, I try to make my gift different from last year. That means I can't just give flowers to my mom! That's why I’ve compiled a list of unique gift ideas to gift the important woman in your life, featuring some of my favourite Canadian small businesses.
Of course, a handmade card is always a go-to gift to give! If you are out of time and need a quick but thoughtful present, go ahead and pick up a bouquet of flowers and pair it with a handmade card from Thoughtfully Handmade.
While flowers are impersonal, it is convenient. But, once you add a card with a thoughtful message inside, it adds the personal touch that you need to make it an amazing Mother’s Day gift!
Do you know a plant mom? Celebrate Mother’s Day with her by gifting her a unique planter!
These planters from Modern Plant Life by Ngoc are so fun and different from the typical ones you see in the store. The plant mom is sure to appreciate your loving gesture and the acknowledgment of their hard work.
Taking care of a plant is hard! They can be very high maintenance, and they need a lot of love and attention to grow. Why not put a unique spin on Mother’s Day and gift them a beautiful planter? Check out Ngoc’s Etsy shop or Instagram page for her full collection!
Now that we’ve covered plant moms, what about dog moms? I’ve always been told that taking care of a dog is just as hard as taking care of a child, and I can understand why!
Dogs depend on their mom as much as a child would, so why not celebrate the hard work dog moms do? These pet accessories from Happy Paws Company would make a great Mother’s Day gift for any dog mom.
Have a female role model in your life that you owe everything to? These bracelets and necklace from Grow Glow Co are just what you need!
These pieces are made of stones which represent gratitude, love and appreciation- just what you need to thank your role model! It is the perfect gift for any entrepreneur, teacher, mentor or parent.
Take Mother’s Day as an opportunity to thank the strong ladies in your life! Make sure to check out their website for more designs!
Speaking of appreciation, help a mom take a self-care day by gifting her a face mask or scrub from Scrub Inspired! Their skincare products really do rock as it's all vegan and sustainably packaged!
Moms are busy people and rarely take any time for themselves. Include an offer to babysit with this gift to give a mom the subtle push she needs to take some “me-time.”
With all of that being said, time is truly the best gift to give someone. As thoughtful as the present is, spending time with someone is the best way to show them love and appreciation. The gift is just a little something extra! Have a happy Mother’s Day!
