Back to school season is here and we are getting ready with Muskoka Bear Wear! Getting ready for the school day, classes, and study sessions doesn’t have to be stressful! We’ve got comfy, Canadian made staples to wear out and about at school or to cozy up at home with. From Quarter Zips that go well with jeans, to hoodies to keep you warm in the fall, to Cottage Comfy Pants perfect for late night studying – we’ve got you covered this September.
Mother’s Day is just around the corner and we want to help you celebrate the moms and mother figures in your life! Do you find yourself without a gift for Mother’s Day? We’ve compiled a few sentimental gifts that you can do within a few days!
Sometimes the best gift we can give is time! This is a great Mother’s Day present even if you are not able to physically visit your mom. Call your mom ahead of time to plan an hour out of your day that you can both sit down and enjoy a tea and talk whether that be on the porch or over a video call. Turn off other distractions around you so that your mom gets your undivided attention! Bonus Idea: Plan a local food delivery to her door with some baked goods for your mom to enjoy during your tea catch-up!
2. Home Cooked Meal
Let’s face it – moms are superwomen! What better way to show your love and appreciation for everything they’ve done and continue to do, than cooking a home cooked meal and maybe a bonus dessert!

3. A Few of Your Favourite Moments
Moms are there for some of the most important moments in our lives! Why not create a momento of those moments as a gift for Mother’s Day to show your mom some of the favourite memories you have with her! This could be a small book, a memory box, a container of photos with notes on the back, a framed shadow box or even a video blog! Some ideas for moments to include and reflect on might be:
- a family trip
- a time you both laughed until your bellies ached
- a particular moment you remember them going above and beyond to help you through a difficult time
- the simple moments – a tradition or daily routine you do with your mom
- a collection of reasons about why you think she’s unique and special
- A Local Gift-Basket
Shopping local is not only a great way to support you community, but great if you find yourself running out of time to ship something to your door! Many local businesses offer local curb-side pick-up within the week! At muskokabearwear.com, we offer contactless curb-side pick-up at our Online Order Processing Facility in Bracebridge and are available via online chat to help you pick out the perfect gift for your mom!
5. A Mini Garden
Bring nature inside to admire on those rainy days with a homemade mini indoor garden! This could be something you create for your mom with some of her favourite small flowers or herbs, or you could make it a project that you can build together on Mother’s Day as a bonding activity! Some of our favourite indoor gardens we stumbled across on Pinterest include:
