A Mom's Perspective

The Joys of Parenting & Everything in Between

Celebrate Her this Mother’s Day

Celebrate Her this Mother’s Day

Welcome to our Eclectic and Fabulous Celebration of Her.
Full of gift ideas that are special, different, and hopefully somewhat unique for the special women in your life this Mother’s Day.

Celebrate Her this Mothers Day

On Mother’s Day, we celebrate Her: Mothers, Grandmothers, Daughters, Sisters, Aunts, Cousins, Nieces, Teachers, Daughters, Wives, Significant Others, Friends, and Neighbours. We think that a celebration of Her should be more than just flowers, chocolates and brunch. Don’t get us wrong, we LOVE flowers, chocolates and brunch, but we like to think outside of the box when it comes to gift giving and celebrating those we love. We strive to have gifts that are not only special, but memorable!

Coupon Books

Coupon books are awesome, and every Mom loves something hand made by their kids! BUT what about a unique and fun coupon book, fully personalized and designed by you, professionally printed and mailed to the special woman of your choice? Datevitation has coupons books for EVERYONE including Lovers and Parents which make this a perfect idea for Mom’s Day. I actually bought one of these for my son for his birthday a few years ago, and its a really fun idea!

Personalized Photo Gifts

Photo Books, Canvases, Photo Puzzles, Coffee Mugs etc make the perfect gift for just about everyone.  My favourites are Kulapix, Posterjack, Canvas N Decor and Puzzle Prints!

Meal Service

Why not give the woman in your life some nights off from meal planning, shopping and cooking and give a  Hello Fresh gift card? The meals are planned for you with easy step by step instructions, and all the ingredients are conveniently delivered right to your door. The meals are easy enough that YOU can do the cooking and give her some nights off!

Gift cards are for one week (3 meals) of Hello Fresh and are available for all of their meal plans.

Hello Fresh

Socks (YES, socks!)

I just love socks, and I love receiving socks all year long! BUT, I don’t want plain boring white socks, I want something fun and unique that stand out (and possibly become a conversation starter) like the socks from Sock Panda!


Home Spa Pampering Experience 

Give the gift of a Home Spa. This can include awesome products from Live Clean, LipidolFreeman Face Masks, her favourite Make-up items, Lip Balms (I’m LOVING Balmshot Lip Balms) or even the new Tweezerman Bright Complexion Facial Dermaplaner (to exfoliate and rejuvenate skin).

Kitchen “Stuff”

I LOVE getting kitchen “stuff” as gifts any time of the year. Bakeware, Pots & Pans, that Coffee Maker she has been looking at… what better time than Mother’s Day to give her something she will use everyday?  Something I think that every home needs is an Immersion Blender and Salt & Pepper Mills. If you have a Star Wars fan on your list this Mother’s Day, she will LOVE the Anakin Skywalker Lightsaber Immersion Blender and the Star Wars Lightsaber Salt & Pepper Mills from Pangea Brands. Another awesome item that I love is my tea infuser from Libre Tea. It would make a great gift for the women in your life.

Libre Tea Glasses

For the Foodie (and subscription box lover)

Why not give the gift of World Cuisine with a fun (and unique) subscription to Food Trip To. Delight here with an authentic food experience from around the world! Each box contains 6 products and 4 recipes to help you (or her) make an authentic meal from another country, and also includes cultural information and even a small surprise (think cultural item)!

Cleaning “Stuff”

I know, you think that Mother’s Day is NOT the right time of the year to give vacuums, mops and steamers but we think you’re wrong! We think that ANYTIME is a great time to receive a gift that will make housework easier and less time consuming! The Homeright SteamMachine Model 53 makes disinfecting and cleaning a breeze without the use of chemicals, and the BLACK + DECKER BDH2400FH Lithium Stick Vacuum with ORA Technology, 24-Volt makes cleaning up day to day messes fast and easy!

Camping Gear

Coleman tents and camping gear and Bulbhead Atomic Bean LED Lanterns all make the perfect gift for the outdoors-woman and camper on your list.

Adventures & Experiences!

Is the woman in your life adventurous? Whitewater Rafting offered by Wilderness Tours Adventure in Ottawa just might be the ticket!

Or maybe Indoor Skydiving offered by iFly Toronto!

Lifeexperiences.ca also makes gift giving easy. From Adventure to Lifestyle to Food & Drink, there are plenty of experiences here to delight anyone on your list. Experiences change frequently and vary by province.  Gift cards are available!

Something for Everyone!

Still need ideas?  Head to Michael’s to find the perfect gifts for the baker, sewer, gardener or crafter in your life.

And last, but certainly not least, if you’re really stuck with what to get her this year, you can always visit on of our very favourite stores! Chapters/Indigo is more than just book (although BOOKS ARE AWESOME) and they literally have something for everyone!
