How exactly do you find the perfect gift to the woman you owe everything to? I find myself at a crossroads because my mum has everything and I also want to give her everything. I've brainstormed some unique gift ideas that hopefully will inspire you.
FOR THE MUM WHO NEEDS AN HOUR TO HERSELF
Monogrammed Pajama Set & Latest Heather's Pick. This is the perfect gift for the mum that likes to sneak away to relax after a long day. Buy her something warm that will make her feel nice and cozy inside.
FOR THE MUM WHO WANTS TO UNWIND
A Day at the Spa! I recommend The Pillar and Post, St. Anne's Spa or Body Blitz. Purchase a package for the mum that needs a break and some quality time with her favourite kid. Research the best restaurant to treat her to lunch before your treatment.
FOR THE SENTIMENTAL MUM
Custom Photo Album or a unique piece of jewelry. It's so easy to whip up a beautifully bounded photo album of memorable photos. The outcome will be guaranteed happy tears and makes for a beautiful coffee table book. Otherwise, find a local jeweler that your mom adores and surprise her.
FOR THE ADVENTURE SEEKER MUM
CN Tower edgewalk, indoor skydiving or long bike ride to a fun destination. Toronto offers so many great experiences for any thrill seeking mum. These adventures will make for a great memory that you can reflect back on for years to come.
FOR THE OUTDOORSY MUM
Picnic and hike the Bruce Trail or kayak to the Toronto Islands. Why not grab all of your mum's favourite foods and pack them up for a fun hike. Surprise her with renting kayaks and head to the Toronto Islands for the day. Book lunch at the Rectory Cafe to fuel up before the paddle back.
FOR THE FOODIE MUM
Did you know that Anthony Bourdain is coming to Toronto? What a great way to treat your foodie mum! Or head to your local farmers market and whip up a delicious meal together.
FOR THE ARTSY MUM
Book a painting class together to bring out some creativity. Maybe there is a local artist near the cottage that you can contact to paint a one-of-a-kind masterpiece. Another option is heading to the abundance of museums that the city has to offer.
FOR THE MUSICAL MUM
FOR THE LOW-KEY MUM
Buy some tickets to see Mother's Day at your local movie theatre. When you return from your relaxing mother-daughter date, treat her to a favourite home cooked meal. Nothing says I love you like spending quality time with your gal!
