This Mother’s Day, I have a few suggestions for items to show how much you love her. From brands you depend on, to local artisans, there’s a perfect gift for every mom.
A gift that prioritizes self-care: I recently got an Oral-B iO Series 7 which is no ordinary toothbrush. It has five personalized brushing modes. It starts up with a friendly greeting as you turn it on. It also has some pretty cool artificial intelligence built-in so you never miss a spot. And forget about hiding this brush away in a drawer. With its sleek look, it makes a perfect addition to your bathroom décor and adds some luxury to your daily dental routine. I love the Black Onyx colour for my personal space, but it also comes in White Alabaster. Plus, for moms on the go, it comes with a magnetic charging station and a premium travel case. Visit oralb.ca to snag one for your mom this Mother’s Day.
A gift that gives mom some relaxation – Olay Bodywash: I cannot think of one mom who doesn’t deserve some downtime to relax and unwind. Olay has a whole line of great products. However, a new one I especially love (and would love to receive on Mother’s Day – hint!) is the Olay Body Wash with Ceramide. This premium body care line focuses on skin care from the neck down It deeply hydrates and strengthens your skin’s moisture barrier, leaving your skin feeling soft and replenished.
This body wash would go great with soft and fluffy towels, maybe a bathrobe, a loofa, candles, chocolates or wine. Olay also has fantastic face moisturizers, serums and creams to pamper mom even more. You can create an entire relaxation-themed basket with mom’s favourite items and surprise her with time to use them!
A gift that supports local -Throw blanket and decor items from Pure Boutique on Brant St. I just love to pop into Pure Boutique and browse. They have so many unique items that can add to mom’s décor, surround her in luxury or treat her to a keepsake. There’s no end to the options when you step inside the doors of this local shop. And that’s part of the beauty of shopping locally. You help to support stores in your own neighborhood and find absolute treasures. I grabbed some beautiful patterned pillows and a decorative quilted coverlet but they sell clothing, jewellery, furniture and so much more.
A gift for the entertainer – Locally made ceramics from The Art Gallery of Burlington: This is another one of those local shops where the finds are endless! The Art Gallery of Burlington has shopping for moms covered, from a stylish mug that mom can use every day to a serving bowl that is both practical and gorgeous as a décor item. Everytime mom uses her new salad bowl she’ll think of you and she’ll love having it on display.
Whatever you get for mom, or wherever you take her, be sure to let her know how special she is to you.
