Mother’s Day | gifts for mom

The mother weighs, cuddles and eats. She hunts wounds and monsters under the bed. She wipes away tears and glues broken hearts back together. It is always present even after we have left the nest. As Mother’s Day approaches on Sunday May 8th, here are some gift ideas to say thank you.

flowers from here

Wildflowers are grown in Ayer’s Cliff.

Because they give off a sweet spring scent and bring color into the house, a bouquet of flowers is always a nice gift. The arrangements of the flower farm Enfants Sauvages made of pussy willows and special tulips have it all. Not only are the flowers grown in Quebec, in Ayer’s Cliff, but also without the use of pesticides or herbicides. Mother’s Day bouquets can be delivered to your home in Montreal, South Shore, North Crown and Estrie. It is also possible to pick them up at one of the pick-up points.

Price: from $50, online

For the new mother

The box “Sweets for the new mother”

Being a mom, “it doesn’t take just a little bit! writes the Quebec company 4T on its website. To give the new mom a moment of sweetness, she compiled a box of “treatments that celebrate the physical and mental well-being so important in the fourth trimester.” A lip balm, an invigorating fragrance and an oatmeal bath are part of this box that promises to soothe the mind and body. All products are suitable for breastfeeding women. Two other themed boxes were also designed for Mother’s Day.

Price: $65, online and in select outlets

love words


IMAGE SUPPLIED BY MARLONE

Marlone cards come with a seed packet.

The words fly away, but the writings remain. Why not use Mother’s Day to write down all the affection you have for your mom? It will be a memory she will want to cherish for a long time. We really like the cards created for the occasion by the Montreal company Marlone. Little extra: they contain a sachet of seeds. Your mother will be able to beautify her country with biological cosmos.

Price: $9 online

With a photo session you can immortalize moments that often pass too quickly.

All mothers will tell you: children grow up too fast. Have you ever thought about capturing your family life in photos? Many professional photographers offer to capture everyday moments by spending some time at your home. A photo session in the studio or outside can also be a very nice gift that will become a precious memory.
