You are right! There is no reason to wait for a single Sunday, in May, to tell your mother that you love her. However, you must admit that if you do not send a card, take her for lunch or give her a small gift to acknowledge the day, it looks bad. We thought we would help with a few Mother’s Day gift ideas.
Zen Mama (or one needs a bit of calm in her life)
Give her a natural beeswax candle handcrafted by Chandler Jill Smith. These custom edition candles are available in three beautiful designs. Made with 100% pure beeswax sourced in Alberta, Smith creates these candles in her sweet-smelling garage on Salt Spring Island in British Columbia.
Why buy candles made with beeswax? They are a healthier choice. Slow burning beeswax candles produce a bright light and a non-toxic smoke. Read five (5) reasons to choose beeswax candles over paraffin here.
There are three Bees Wax Works candle designs to choose from (click here), but is “Key to My Heart” might be a good choice for your mother.
Pro Hostess and Entertainer Mom
Is she a passionate foodie and loves cooking? Get your mother something to brighten up her kitchen. Anouk has a series of alpine inspired European linen aprons and tea towels in five (5) different designs.
Does your mother feed off the energy of social gatherings surrounded by friends and family?
These hand carved serving boards are long lasting gifts that are perfect for entertaining. West Coast weather permitting, Kathy Clark of Schooner Lane Designs cuts these hardwood boards on her Bowen Island deck. Using her trusty electric saw Clark hand cuts walnut, maple and cherry hardwood into a shape that will eventually become a cheese or charcuterie board. These serving boards are finished with food-safe beeswax and mineral oil paste. Schooner Lane Designs serving and chopping boards are created from rough off-cuts, giving this wood a renewed purpose.
Choose any one of these boards for your mother. Our personal favourite is the heart handle version. Add a special touch by requesting to have the board engraved with your mum’s initials.
Give her a scarf or shawl to add a pop of colour to her spring outfits without any additional bulk. Check out at the designer options here.
