Mother’s Day is just around the corner, but luckily there is still plenty of time to get your mom, aunt, or special mother figure in your life the perfect gift. With our Mother’s Day gift guide, you won’t have to scramble for last minute gift ideas and you’ll be helping to support local businesses and entrepreneurs. Whether they’re a foodie, fashion-lover, or tech-savvy, we’ve included suggestions mom is sure to love.
Mother’s Day gifts for foodies
While dining out may still be restricted in much of Canada, it doesn’t mean you can’t still find a gift that your mom will love. If your mom is a foodie who appreciates the the joys of a good meal, here are some suggestions for her:
Mandy’s Gourmet Salads: Recipes for Lettuce and Life
This beautiful cookbook will not only look stylish on mom’s shelf, she’ll also love bringing all of the delicious recipes to life. A salad cookbook may not sound particularly indulgent, but the recipes in these pages come from the beloved Montreal restaurant that goes by the same name and the salads are anything but ordinary. Written by the two sisters behind the Mandy’s restaurant, who are themselves moms, it’s a great choice for any mother who is passionate about food.
If you’re looking to splurge on a Mother’s Day gift this year, you really can’t go wrong with KitchenAid’s classic mixer. It’s on the wish list of just about every home cook or baker, and with tens of thousands of five star reviews you can feel confident your mom will love it.
It’s possible your foodie mom already has it. If so, surprise her with an attachment you know she’ll love that will let her get even more use out of her mixer. There are a wide range to choose from, such as the pasta press attachment, $129.99, or the metal food grinder attachment, $79.99.
If your mom loves indulging in a delicious cup of coffee every morning, consider buying her a coffee subscription from well-known Vancouver-based roasters 49th Parallel. She’ll receive a curated selection of three single origin coffees each month. Who knows, she just might discover her new favourite roast in the process.
This is a great gift choice for a cocktail-lover or for the mom who enjoys challenging herself and learning new things. As well as surprising her with a virtual class, you can also add on a cocktail kit and specialty mixing tools. Why not take the class together for a fun activity that you can enjoy in-person or on Zoom.
While clothing is quite personal, we have some fashion ideas we think any mom would love.

It’s comfortable enough to throw on every day, and elegant enough that she will feel pampered and chic whenever she wears it.
