10 Genius Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

Cookbooks, jewellery, home decor—these charming presents are guaranteed to impress the number-one woman in your life.

We love our moms—and try to show them every day—but we often do take them for granted. They carried us for nine month and financially supported us for 18 (or more) years, and they have definitely earned a well-deserved break—or at least a token of our appreciation. So for any last-minute shoppers out there who are looking for note-worthy presents to put a sweet smile on mom’s face, look no further. Here are 10 gift ideas that’ll let her know “I love you, and I’m not just saying that because I have to,” this Mother’s Day.


1. All Together Now

Magnolia Table ($23), the debut cookbook from HGTV star Joanna Gaines, is packed with proper instructions and beautiful photos of classic family recipes that can be enjoyed from breakfast to dessert (and at every snack time in between). This gift will guarantee that mom (and everyone else, for that matter) can truly enjoy the next family gathering. chapters.indigo.ca


2. Vacation Vibes

West Elm’s Crewel Fragments cushion covers ($30 each) will give mom the comfort and illusion of the vacation she deserves. Choose from three vibrant, Bali-inspired colours—midnight blue, dark horseradish and platinum—that will fit into modern, minimalist interiors. westelm.ca
