Mom: a title just above queen.
Every time I ask my mom if there’s anything in particular she’d love or love to do for Mother’s Day, she always replies that she’s happy with anything as long as she gets to spend time with her children. As sweet as she is, it really doesn’t help when it comes time to pick out something special for her. I thought buying gifts would be easier to choose, especially now that I’m a mother myself, but no, definitely not. Perhaps, it’s just me and my finicky ways when it comes to presents, especially for those I care a lot about. I just want it to be perfect. It’s one day a year where you can treat and shower the queen of our hearts with extra love and appreciation, so give her a little something that she’ll truly appreciate and enjoy.
If you’re gathering up some gift ideas for Mother’s Day, here are a few hand-selected items I’m certain any mom would adore. Gift them separately or pair a couple up for an extra-special treat!

6) Fresh Flowers Delivery Subscription
What’s better than receiving a beautiful bouquet of fresh flowers? How about a bouquet to your door every month? I know I’d love this!
Depending on where you’re located, some local florists may offer a monthly subscription of flower deliveries but I have to say Sweetpea’s Floral and Gift Boutique has my vote!
Mainly because they don’t ask for a large payment up front which is what most florists tend to do. You only pay for each order, when they are being sent (rather than taking full payment when you place your initial order) which is a better and more affordable option.
With this flower subscription, mom will receive a beautiful selection of Fresh Eco & Socially Responsible Flowers. You can set your preference below in terms of Hand-Tied Bouquets or Vase Arrangements, Budget, Design Style and Frequency.
Subscriptions range from $40 – $150, sweetpeas.ca
7) Springtime Hand Cream Trio
If you haven’t tried L’Occitane’s hand creams yet, your hands are missing out on something special. Beautifully and delicately-scented and luxuriously nourishing, this trio is a true beauty must-have for every mom.
This set includes:
– Shea Butter Hand Cream 30ml
– Almond Delicious Hands 30ml
– Cherry Blossom Hand Cream 30ml
8) Arbonne Rescue and Renew Collection
The next best thing to a spa getaway, I recently discovered this amazing collection from Arbonne and I fell head over heels. The scent of these products instantly transport you into a zen-like state and they work wonders on your skin. Quenching away the remnants of Winter, this is just what mom needs.
Inspired by ancient Ayurvedic spa practices, Arbonne’s Rescue & Renew collection is a holistic approach to wellness that helps detoxify the body by cleansing the skin’s surface of impurities, while also protecting the skin’s moisture barrier. Offering a complete pampering experience with products that help Mom release her stress, soak in goodness and achieve smoother, softer and more radiant skin, Rescue & Renew includes a Detox Face Mask, Detox Bath Soak and Detox Scrub, to name a few, delivering rewarding results for the mind, body and soul.
