Mother's Day Gift Guide Vancouver
Whether shopping for a new mom up to her elbows in diapers or a seasoned vet who's seen every type of tantrum, here's a list of gifts that are sure to give her a Mother's Day thrill.
Named after his former-model mother, Michael Kors' Joan Bag is a stylish and practical carryall perfect for day-to-day wear, evenings out and travel. Kors' has said this bag is, "a tribute to all mothers" so don't leave yours out of the fashion loop. $350 at Michael Kors Pacific Centre and Oakridge Centre, www.michaelkors.com —MT
Even if she is a hardcore career woman whose idea of cooking is spending an hour choosing the menu with a caterer, every mom loves a little Le Creuset. The French cookware brand has recently launched a new line of stoneware storage jars that make a perfect Mother's Day gift. Not only are the olive, honey and mustard jars very cute, but the best part is there’s no cooking obligations involved. Honey pot, $40. For stockists, visit www.lecreuset.com —ASI
Mom has always been stylin’. So what better way to give her a trip down memory lane than with My Mom, Style Icon? Chronicling decades of the most stylish matriarchs, Piper Weiss’ newly released book is a treat for vintage lovers too. $15.85 at Amazon.ca —KD
Get mom off her feet for once with a mani-pedi (better yet, join her!). Wrap up the GC with a bottle of Bourjois Paris nail laquer in Rose Lounge, the very same polish Kate Middleton wore on her wedding day. Who's feeling like a princess now? $10 at Shoppers Drug Mart, 3277 Cambie St., Vancouver, www.shoppersdrugmart.com —SB
Want to make up for being a messy teenager? Gift her a bottle of Bergamont & Grapefruit dish soap from Aspen Clean, along with a note promising to do the chores for an entire month (and then hire a cleaning service to deliver on that promise). $9 at www.aspenclean.com —SB
