Mother’s Day Gift Ideas
Every year we celebrate mothers – and rightly so! I grew up with an amazing mom and look forward to honouring her on Mother’s Day. The difficultly arises when trying to figure out what’s the perfect gift for such a special person. Here are my top picks for moms everywhere.
Is your mom a superstar in the kitchen? Surprise her with a gift that will feed her culinary passion. The KitchenAid Artisan Mini Stand Mixer is sure to delight. It has a hub of attachments like the popular Spiralizer, for Mom to reinvent classic meals into healthier recipes using fresh fruits and vegetables.
Why not get your mom all the items needed for a barista bar in her own home? A pioneer in single-serve coffee, Nespresso has top of the line units for coffee enthusiasts to savor life's many moments. The Vertuo Plus boasts versatility, the convenience of an automatic closing and opening, as well as adjustable cup support for those extra large cups!
With spring in the air it might be a great gift to lighten up your mom’s décor with some new bright and crisp pillows. My pillow collection is fully washable (you toss the entire pillow – cover and stuffing – into the washer!) hypoallergenic and made in Canada. Jo Alcorn Collection
I am in love with the idea of the new FIZZI sparkling water maker by SodaStream. The system allows you to transform tap water into sparkling water at home, at the touch of a button, without electricity. Whether your mom is looking to fizz up her water or enjoy a cocktail, the FIZZI will look perfect on her countertop. I also love that it’s great for the environment as you aren’t using cans or bottles – you can simply use a gorgeous wine glass or glass from home!
If your mom needs absolutely nothing I always suggest the gift of time. Book a spa day with her, high tea or even a weekend get away. A resort I recently visited is in the Kawartha’s and is one of Ontario’s gems called Viamede . It’s set on gorgeous Stoney Lake, has serene views, walking trails and the most delicious food. You can treat your mom to a 5 course meal at their Mt. Julian restaurant that boasts local ingredients and farm-to-table mantras.
