Mother’s Day is just weeks away, it’s time to start thinking about gifts for mom! This year you may not have the opportunity to spend the day with your mom so I’ve put together a gift guide that includes amazing Canadian brands that ship across Canada! Sit back, relax and do your Mother’s Day gift giving from the comfort of your own home.
Some of my favourite brands are featured in this gift guide for mom, all of which are located right here in Canada. Now more than ever we need to support Canadian businesses as they navigate through another tough year. I’ve made it easy for you with links to some of my favourite products as well as some discount codes to save you money on your order!
Since I was a little girl I have loved Purdys Chocolatier. Growing up in Winnipeg we didn’t have a store back then so we would have friends and family bring us chocolates from Vancouver when they would visit! The Cordial Cherries were my favourite when I was little, everyone always saved them for me in the mixed box of chocolates.
There are so many mouth watering options available this year for Mother’s Day at Purdys, from your classic Himalayan Pink Salt Caramels (my personal fave) to the Mom’ Survival Kit which includes a variety of Purdys favourites. Not sure what kind of chocolates to get? The Mother’s Day Classic Gift Box offers an assortment of Purdys best selling chocolates. Add a Pink Tulip Lolly to finish off your gift. The packaging is so pretty this year you won’t even need to wrap it!
Hatley Women offers a selection of beautiful, high quality dresses for mom to wear this year on Mother’s Day. We may not be able to go out for dinner but it doesn’t mean we can’t get dressed up for the special occasion! After years of buying Hatley for my children, I was excited to see they offer great options for women as well.
The Lauren Eyelet Dress in classic white is perfect for Spring and Summer! This dress is ultra-flattering with an empire waist and A-line design that is fully lined. I ordered my regular size medium and loved the fit! This cool cotton dress can be dressed up with heels or dressed down with a pair of sandals. It’s perfect for a picnic at the beach or special occasion.
I recently discovered a company called Plantsome, that delivers plants right to your door. I’ve never been a big fan of bouquets of flowers but I do LOVE plants! The website was easy to navigate and delivery was super quick, they include lots of details about the individual plants to help you decide what to order. Plantsome has even included a special area dedicated to Pet Friendly Plants which is awesome to see since I have a dog and a cat! I found it so helpful that they also sell the pots in their online store, you can order everything you need and have it shipped right to moms door!
The plants have cute names on their website, I ended up choosing Isabella which is a Calathea Orbifolia with a Franco on Stand pot. I also ordered Amin which is a Maranta Leuconeura and planted it in a Franco pot. I love white pots, they always make the plants POP! Both plants arrived healthy and happy on my doorstep in a special delivery box that prevents soil from spilling out from the pot and ensures plants are kept safe and healthy during the journey to your home. All plants come with a 3 month ‘Happy Plant Guarantee’ so when they are cared for properly using the Plantsome app, your plants should be thriving for at least 3 months. Download the Plantsome App and never forget to water your plants again!

You guys know how much I love Plenty, I have been a customer of theirs for 12 years! I discovered their store all those years ago on a trip to Vancouver and have been shopping there ever since. I love the quality of their clothing and the selection of items every season. Spring is one of my favourite seasons in fashion so I stocked up at Plenty to update my wardrobe!
I love love love the sweaters that Plenty has every season and the Kinley Pullover Tunic is a must have year round. My Kinley addiction started in the fall when I picked up the Sand Gray colour, I wore it so often I recently got the Black as well! And I couldn’t stop just there, I also picked up the cropped version called the Anouch for Spring! The Kinley Pullover Tunic pairs perfectly with leggings or denim and offers the oversized look without being too boxy. I could wear a small or a medium but I prefer the slightly oversized style with this one so went with the medium. This sweater is a MUST HAVE for every mom out there!

Chelsea King is a Canadian based hair accessory company that makes their hair products right here in Canada! I discovered this brand last year when a friend gifted me a scrunchie and let me tell you it is the best scrunchie I have ever owned. Between my daughter and I we own A LOT of hair accessories but Chelsea King has become my go to because my hair actually stays in place never falls out! I even sleep with a top knot bun and I’ll wake up with my hair still in place!
Scrunchies are the hottest accessories these days and what I love about them is they are an effortless upgrade to the simple elastic. Chelsea King uses high quality textiles in on trend designs and colours to compliment every outfit. You can dress them up for work or dress them down for a casual weekend lounge session. Quinn and I are TWINNING in our matching French Ribbed Light Grey Scrunchies, she’s wearing the thin version and I have the classic!
