5 Gift Ideas for Mother’s Day This Year

5 Gift Ideas for Mother’s Day This Year

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!

1. Time

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! Check out some of our favourite recommendations on the Muskoka Bear Wear Recipes Board on Pinterest: Weekend Recipes

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

At, 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!
