Creative gift ideas for Mother's Day

Your mom isn’t just anyone. She’s the one who has always been there for you, your biggest supporter and the best should to cry on when you need it the most. So this Mother’s Day, which is rapidly approaching on May 14, give her a gift as unique and special as she is.
Think about what makes your mom who she is. Does she love to go out and do activities? Perhaps you could purchase tickets for an upcoming concert or musical she would enjoy. Take her to the latest display at the museum or she might enjoy an outing to the local botanical gardens followed by a lovely lunch.
Speaking of flowers, if they are your fallback gift, put a different spin on them this year. Although flowers are always appropriate, consider giving them in a way that will last much longer and allow her to think of you every time she sees them. For instance, you could give her a set of pressed flower art or note cards embedded with dried flowers.
Or instead of a bouquet of flowers that will only last a week, help her plant a tree or a flower garden in her yard. If she is more into growing and tending the flowers herself, you could give her a new gardening tote with tools and selection of seeds. Pair it with cute gloves and a gardening book and you have an excellent gift for a garden aficionado.
If your mom is more of a foodie or enjoys baking and cooking, you could give her a set of artisan extracts or flavoured olive oils with some great new recipe books. How about a custom beverage dispenser and embroidered cocktail napkins? Maybe she would enjoy taking a cooking class with you. Another great gift would be to surprise her with a monthly food delivery subscription that will deliver her fresh ingredients and allow her to cook stress-free meals.
If she doesn’t particularly care for edible surprises and is more artistic by nature, consider getting her an adult colouring book with quality coloured pencils. These are great for relaxation and have become a popular way to unwind. There are also many private studios offering painting classes with an instructor that leads you step by step while you sip wine.
There are so many creative options available for Mother’s Day gifts. Give her a gift that reflects just how special she is to you and how very much she is loved.
Happy Mother’s Day from the Calgary Woman’s Show!
