I can’t believe that Mother’s Day is just under two weeks away, wow did that ever sneak up fast!! While I know it may look a little bit different this year, I still think it’s super important to show the women who raised us just how much they are loved … it might just require a little EXTRA creativity this year and that’s ok! I’m always up for a challenge!
If you know me, you’ll know that I love surprising those that I love with fun and sentimental gifts so I’ve made sure to round up a few of my favourite ideas for you below along with a few other ideas for good measure! However, remember that you don’t always need to splurge on your mama to show her that you care and love her. The little thoughtful things go a loooong way!!
Here are some amazing gift ideas for mom that don’t break the bank:
- Give her a call and just check-in (Maybe even join face time and have a glass of wine!)
- Send a heartfelt text
- Prepare your favourite homemade dish for her (or better yet you could gift her a sourdough starter…LOL)
- Help her with her garden (from a distance of course)
- Plan a virtual yoga session
- Order her favourite meal from her favourite restaurant for take-out! (there are so many good ones delivering)
For the Foodie: Fraiche Food Full Hearts Cookbook
When I was growing up I spent a lot of time in the kitchen with my mom and my Boomba. Cookbooks have always been so sentimental to us and ultimately what inspired Tori and I to create Fraiche Food Full Hearts. With a wide range of recipes, our Fraiche Food Full Hearts cookbook will keep the foodie in your life cooking (and baking!) up a storm!
Another great idea is to get one of your favourite family recipes printed and framed. This is what we did with our Granny’s Beet Roll recipe and it’s something we can treasure for years to come.
For the Jewelry Lover: Melanie Auld Adorned Charms
As many of you know, I have teamed up with Melanie Auld and together we have launched the Adorned collection that is filled with the sweetest charms and initials to represent the people, places, and things that are most important to you. The great thing about this necklace is the fact that it is something that can be built on each year by adding a new charm.
For the Spa Lover: Surf Soak Bath Salts
There is nothing I love more than locking myself in the bathroom, filling up the tub and soaking in my favourite bath salts (with a glass of wine in hand of course … LOL!). For those of you who may not know, Surf Soak is an ocean-inspired apothecary business founded on Vancouver Island and it’s very near and dear to my heart because Justin’s brother, Matt, is one of the founders! What I love most about Surf Soak is that all of their products contain natural ingredients that are gentle on our bodies and the earth and their ocean-friendly packaging doubles as the perfect piece of decor for your bathroom!
For the Decor Lover: Cloth and Main Pillows
We have some exciting news … especially for the decor lovers our there! The Jillian Harris x Cloth and Main outdoor pillows from our Etsy summer collection have been restocked! Not only are they handmade by a local mama right here in Kelowna, but their beautiful vintage textiles make for such a unique gift! You can find the entire collection here (while quantities last of course).
For the Fashion Lover: Shop the Skinny Cardigan
I couldn’t leave this off of the list! This cream coloured cardigan is the PERFECT addition to any fashion lovers wardrobe. Whether she wants to pair it with her loungewear staples or dress it up, you seriously can’t go wrong with this piece. If you have been following along with my isolation wardrobe … you’ll know that I am pretty much living in this cardigan these days! LOL!
For the Photo Lover: Jilly Digital Store
Whether your mom is known for snapping pictures at family gatherings, Sunday dinners, or just when you pop over for a visit or if she loves to swap out her art collections every season she will LOVE the prints and presets from the Jilly Digital Store! Also, from now until June 1 take 25% off our presets and prints using code XOMAY25 and get mom a gift that she will be sure to use over and over again!
There are seriously SO many amazing gifts to get mom this year to show her just how much you love her!
