Mother's Day Gift Ideas

If you’re struggling with how to adjust your Mother’s Day plans this year because of budget or social distancing, we understand. We’ve put some ideas together that could help trigger your creativity so you can give your mom the Mother’s Day she deserves during these difficult times. As always, we’re here to bounce off ideas and help in any way we can, don’t hesitate to reach out or leave a message with your gift ideas in the comment section below.

1. A Gift of Appreciation

Write your mom a letter or send her an email, take some time to make it meaningful by sending photos with it or attaching photos to your email.  Words of affirmation never fail to make someone feel appreciated, especially your mom.

If you have the time and funds to take it a step further, another option is to create a custom photobook online to send to her.  Here are some sites that provide this service, many of which are currently running a variety of promotions: Photobook Canada, Blurb, Snapfish, Shutterfly, and Mixbook.

2. A Gift of Local Food and Drink or a Virtual Cooking Session

Order some local food or drink to be delivered to your mom’s house from a local business who could use your support. If you are local to Toronto like us, check out these businesses who have adapted to the times to serve their communities through pick up or delivery options! 

As an alternative, you could schedule a video chat cooking session with your mom where you both cook a new recipe together over Zoom/Facetime/Google Hangouts/Skype.

DIY Relaxing Bath Salts with Essential Oils


1 to 2 cups Epsom salt

¼ to 1 cup Baking soda

¼ cup Sea salt (optional)

1 tsp to 1 tbsp Cannabis oil (optional)

8-10 drops Essential oils

Essential oil blends options for baths:

Option 1: 8-10 drops Lavender

Option 2: 4 drops Bergamot and 4 drops Lavender

Option 3: 4 drops Lavender and 4 drops Frankincense

Option 4: 4 drops Lavender, 2 drops Geranium, and 2 drops Roman Chamomile 

Directions: While bath water is running, pour Epsom salt and baking soda. When bathtub is filled, add your essential oils and stir well with your hand until the salts are dissolved completely. Soak for 18 minutes. Watch your step coming out of the tub, it slippery because of the oils.
