Mother’s Day Gift Guide
From scarves to soaps, celebrate mom with gifts as lovely to give as they are to receive.
Hit the Road
Buy your mom a Desiree Silk Headscarf ($49.50) from Club Monaco’s newly launched web store. Get a scarf for yourself, rent a convertible and take a weekend drive with the top down and your mom at your side. www.clubmonaco.ca
Single Serving Sweetie
Marble Slab Creamery has ice cream cupcakes that look like swirled sundaes in waffle cups drizzled with delectable sauce. Choose from flavours including raspberry cheesecake, turtle and vanilla brownie. Six for $19.95, www.marbleslab.ca
Birds of a Feather (Sponsored)
You may have flown the coop, but let mom know there’s no place like home with this delicate and sentimental silver bird’s nest necklace by local designer Emily Megan ($120) at Little Dream in the Net Loft. Find this and plenty of unique gift ideas on Granville Island.
Williams-Sonoma’s essential oils collection of productions includes a line of lotion, candles, soaps and cleaners scented like meyer lemons. It’s so fresh your mom won’t notice you gave her cleaner and she’ll think of you every time she goes to moisturize her hands. From $15, 2903 Granville St., Vancouver, 778-330-2581, www.williams-sonoma.com
For Good Measure
These measuring cups are so pretty they can be left out on the counter as a form of culinary art or an ode to mom’s baking. Throw in a dozen cookies with your gift to pay her back for all those after school snacks. $38 at Anthropologie, 2912 Granville St., Vancouver, 604-734-2529, www.anthropologie.com —Jaelyn Molyneux
