In: Family, Holidays

May 13th is just around the corner, so we’ve decided to put together a list of a few unique Mother’s Day gift ideas. Gifts for the home are always a good idea when it comes to mum, and if there’s a certain space she enjoys in her home, this list should be able to give you the perfect gift for it!

1. The Kitchen

A favourite space of many a mother. Yes, you could get her something gadgety like a melon baller from Williams Sonoma but how often will she actually use it? We came across these ultra chic and super practical notepads created by Canadian designer Sarah Richardson.

We love how many sheets of paper you get and how sleek and minimal they are. We guarantee Mom will get a lot of use out of this. Spice up this gift with a pretty pen and some flowers to make it extra special. This is one of our favourite Mother’s Day gift ideas this year!

2. Bathroom

What Mom doesn’t love a spa day? And if they don’t, they definitly should! Help your Mom create her own at home oasis this Mother’s Day. We are huge fans of Vancouver Candle Co., a local company selling hand-made (and beautifully smelling) soy wax candles.

It’s the perfect bathroom accessory providing mood light and amazing scents. You can choose from any of the their neighbourhood collections to find the perfect scent for Mom. Plus, these candles burn for up to 60 hours, so great value.

3. Family Room

Because home is where Mom is.

The family room could very well be her favourite of the entire home, with all the special memories created from Holiday celebrations to family movie nights. We found the perfect way to help Mom keep those memories at her fingertips with these beautiful printed photo books from Artifact Uprising.

These books can be completely customized, with your choice of hard or soft cover. We love the simple layouts and how there’s no tacky design elements to take away from the images. These books are so beautiful, they can be displayed on Mom’s coffee table for years to come.

4. Bedroom

We can all agree that Mom deserves some serious rest, especially from all those years raising us and dealing with our ups and downs (because none of us were perfect). Why not give her the gift of style and comfort? We found these bedding collections by The Cross Design in Yaletown to be beautiful and luxurious.

We love how they are simple, crisp white that Mom can add her own personal style to with throw cushions & blankets.

5. The Yard

Spring has arrived, and we’re sure that Mom is getting her outdoor space all ready for the Summer. And if she likes to entertain, why not gift her something beautiful she may not think to get for herself? We think that this beautiful outdoor tableware from Pottery Barn would be something any Mom would absolutely love to receive.

P.S. They’re currently on sale!

Now hurry up and get shopping!
