Mother’s Day gifts of relaxation

Mother’s day is on the way, which means you’re probably starting to think about what you might want to give that special lady in your life. Whether it’s your wife, mother, grandma, or other special someone, she’s certain to appreciate that you’ve remembered her.

This year, give her what she really wants –some time to relax. Mothering is busy work, so give her a chance to unwind and enjoy some time to herself. Here are a few ways that you can make that happen this Mother’s Day.

Upgrade her cuppa

If you’re shopping for a tea aficionado, help her take her cherished cuppa to the next level. Start with a pretty, new cup and saucer set, then add in a gourmet tea sampler box, and top it all off with Breville’s the Tea Maker™. The Tea Maker™ comes equipped with a series of pre-sets that customize the brew time and temperature according to the selected variety of tea (black, green, white, and oolong). The automated tea basket moves the leaves around in the water, to help providing the most optimal infusion of flavor. You can also set an auto timer, so mom can wake up to a perfectly steeped brew.

Build a backyard hideaway

Would mom love to have her own art studio, reading nook, or mom’s only lounge? Make her wildest dreams come true by gifting her with a backyard “she shed”. Take a look at this video from Lowes to see what it entails:


Grow her hobby

If you’re shopping for an avid gardener, give her something useful and stylish, like this handsome cedar potting table from Lee Valley. The table is the perfect height for working while standing or sitting. It features two storage compartments, two shelves, and is very easy to assemble. It’s a gift any gardening mom is sure to appreciate.

Help mom chill

Some moms think wine is a mighty fine way to relax after a long day. If you have one such mom in your life, she might enjoy receiving a wine fridge this Mother’s Day. Don’t forget to include a bottle of her favourite vintage to top it off!

Give mom the day Off

If you’re celebrating a mom who has small kids at home, chances are, the thing she wants most is some time alone (not that she doesn’t cherish the little ones). So, why not assemble a gift basket containing her favourite snacks and a bottle of her favourite beverage, some bubble bath and maybe a new book (of whatever entertains her). Then (and this is the most important part), gather the children and take them somewhere (without mom) for an extended outing, like to the zoo, the movies, or maybe to see the new Blue Jays display at the LEGOLAND® Discovery Centre. That’s sure to keep them out of her hair for hours.

No matter what you choose to buy or do, be sure to make Mother’s Day special. Stop by for a visit, send a card, or pick up the phone. She’ll be glad that you did.
