Mother’s Day is right around the corner and if you’re like us, you’re on the hunt for the perfect gift for the mom or honorary mom in your life. The gift has to be thoughtful, unique and special, just like her. This year skip the big box stores and opt for a locally made gift from Etsy to show mom how much you care. Read on for our top picks!
6 Bath Products
Everyone loves a good bath, especially moms! Treat her to some homemade bath products to turn her next weeknight tub sesh into a next-level spa experience. Lamb’s Soapworks from Aidrie, Alberta has a perfectly packaged box set that includes a bath soak, soap, lotion and lip balm in a delicious black raspberry vanilla scent. You can personalize the gift box with a special message to your mama.
5 Active Wear
Is the mom in your life always up for hot yoga or the Grouse Grind? Maybe she’s an outdoorsy type that can’t say no to a good camping trip? Etsy has you covered. She’ll love these yoga pants handmade in Calgary by Muladhara Yoga. Or this super cozy “Mountains, Tall Trees and Fog” sweater made in Vancouver. Make sure you complete the look with this “Adventure Out There” camping coffee mug!
Your mom is sure to love these super cute “apple” and “tree” wine glasses, perfect for sharing a glass of vino together! Or perhaps these unique ceramic tumbler glasses that are made to order in Victoria? And of course you can never go wrong with a bouquet of flowers in a beautiful vase, like this modern one that’s made in Vancouver!
3 Personalized Jewellery
Mom will feel extra special with a piece that was made especially for her. Spoil her with a handmade initial necklace from Belle Atelier Jewellery in Port Alberni. Or perhaps a ring designed with the birthstones of her children, like this one made in Ontario.
2 Custom Portraits
For the mother in your life who seems to have everything, why not get a custom portrait made for her? You could have a watercolour family portrait made by Painted Truth Co. Or, send a photo of her fur baby to Triple Studio and have them create a personalized pet painting she will adore.
1 Unique Cards
No gift is complete without the card! Skip the picked over Hallmark section at the grocery store and order one online. Etsy has a ton of cute, funny and unique ones to choose from. We love this “Mom Jeans” card from Papermain in Vancouver. Or this “Mama Bear” card from Pretty by Her in Ontario.
