5 Mother’s Day Gift Ideas She’ll Love

Make your Mom feel beautiful this May 12th by treating her to the things she never gets herself.

A Personal Touch

There is nothing more thoughtful than taking the time to personalize a gift for someone. Think of something your mom uses regularly: a notebook, a bathrobe, a coffee mug, a piece of jewelry, and have one engraved or embroidered so she knows you are always thinking of her.

Or, if she’s more of the nostalgic type, try to gift her a memory. Get a family photo framed, or restore her mother’s favourite piece of furniture.


A Family Affair

If you have siblings, or your mom is married, get everyone together for a family portrait session. Hiring a professional photographer to capture your group as a whole is something very special that your mom will treasure forever.


A Relaxation Package

Self-care can do wonders for a stressed out woman. Treat her to some calming essential oils, bath bombs, soaps, or lotions. It seems like the obvious choice, but don’t underestimate the power of a gift that will encourage relaxation. Or even better, treat her to a day at the spa.


A New Bag

Moms don’t always remember to splurge on themselves when they are busy taking care of everyone else. Spoil her with a new purse that has a pop of colour for spring. It’s the perfect accessory you know she will love to use.


A Planned Experience

For the wine lover, bring her for wine and cheese with a tour at a local winery. Experiences make great gifts and there are a few gorgeous vineyards in the Ottawa area. It’s a unique spot to spend the afternoon, taste delicious wines, and enjoy each other’s company.
