Mother’s Day falls on Sunday, May 10th and for many of us, it might look a little different this year. Many of us won’t be able to spend the day with our mamas, but that doesn’t mean you can’t send her something special to let her know how much she means to you. This year’s gift guide is full of simple gift ideas that are sure to make Mom smile.
This year marks my first Mother’s Day (other than as a fur mama!). My husband had all sorts of amazing plans for us to spend the day, as I’m sure many of you did, but with the current pandemic situation, that’s changed. With that in mind, I’ve collected a few items that I’m currently loving that your mama might, too.
Not unlike Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day is a great holiday for jewellery gift-giving. I personally see Mother’s Day as a time to give more personalized or keepsake jewellery items, not necessarily something lavish or expensive (unless you want to splurge, in which case, go for it!)
Paris Jewellers has a great Mother’s Day Collection with beautiful items for every taste and budget. Not sure what Mom would like? You can never go wrong with a gift card or something simple like a pair of stud earrings or simple pendant.

Comfy PJs & Loungewear
I know that we’re all staying home and sheltering in place right now, but before all this PJs were a big part of my daily wardrobe. Why not treat your mama to some amazing luxe pajamas or lounge pants? I bet this is something she wouldn’t treat herself to!
As you can see (above), I’ve got a pair of these amazing jams and I love love love them (I’m wearing an XS). All of my little’s clothes come from Kyte Baby and when I discovered they started making pieces for women, I couldn’t resist! If your mama isn’t the PJ type, be sure to check out Kyte’s lounge pants and lounge dresses as well.
Phone Photo Printer
We live in a digital age and although we can be great about sharing photos via text, email and social media, we seldom have tangible photos to frame or hang on the fridge anymore. I love this little photo printer that hooks up to my phone:
The FUJIFILM Instax Mini Link Smartphone Printer makes printing photos from your phone super easy! I love it for printing photos to send to my parents and grandparents as well as having a few to easily display around my home!
Luxe Skin Care Products
With the frequent hand washing and harsh chemicals we’re finding in sanitizing products lately, it might be nice to treat Mom to some natural skin care products. One brand that I’m loving right now is Lavido. They’ve been featured on famous blogs like goop and in a number of beauty publications.
Lavido’s products promise to be Active Natural Skincare formulated with Certified Organic Essential Oils. Vegan-friendly and Gluten-Free, with clinically proven results. Be considerate to choose products that your Mom will love – and not ones that say “hey, you’re old, so here’s some anti-aging stuff”. Lavido has plenty of lovely spa and self-care product that any mama would love.
Bells’n’Beads Cake Toppers
Making Mom a special cake or dessert from scratch (maybe just like she taught you) with one of these adorable cake toppers is a lovely gift idea or addition to your celebration!
These cake toppers are small enough to store (no extra cupboard clutter) and perfect to use for dessert or Mother’s Day brunch for years to come!
I love that they’re made by a local Calgary company, too! Shop Bells’n’Beads here!
