When is Mother’s Day in Canada?
In Canada, Mother’s Day is celebrated on the second Sunday of May every year.
It falls on May 14 this year, which means that if you haven’t already found that perfect Mother’s Day gift, it’s time to get shopping — or at least start thinking about what kind of gift you’d like to give!
Canadian Mother’s Day gifts ideas 2017
Our top Mother’s Day gift picks from Chapters/Indigo
Indigo is one of my favourite Canadian retailers, and they have some great Mother’s Day gift suggestions this year. Here are my top Canadian-designed picks after browsing their site (for longer than I would like to admit) yesterday.
Suggestions from other Canadian retailers coming up below!
The Femme Floral Franci Tote embodies the spirit of summer with a whimsical watercolour flower print splashed across a pastel teal bag. Mom will be thinking of you each time she steps out the door with this lovely carry-all!
Best Mom Ever Wine Glass for the mom that enjoys an evening (or whenever) glass of wine. Top this gift up with a bottle of Canadian wine.
The Best Thing Art Print by Canadian artist Alison Gordon will give mom a daily reminder that she’s treasured. Check out Alison’s Etsy shop for more prints.
Canadian Living: Sweet & Simple for the mom who loves to bake or wants to learn. This book has 100 easy recipes that cover the classics and add some fun twists.
Moonbeam Cuff crafted by Canadian jeweller, Jenny Bird, is a sturdy but dainty bracelet cradling a pearl. For the mom who loves pearls but has enough jewellery, consider a Pearl Flowers pure silver coin from the Canadian Mint.
Splatter Paint Scarf makes a great gift for moms who (like me) are excited to accessorize their outfits with scarves in the latest color and patterns almost all year-round. The Irregular Dots print scarf is fun too.
Hello Lovely Jewellery Tray will give mom a place to keep her jewellery or other little bits and bobs, and a daily reminder that you find her to be just lovely.
Indigo has some great-looking book suggestions too of course! I didn’t have time to research each author listed as I was putting this post together, but I did spot award-winning Canadian novel The Handmaid’s Tale, by Margaret Atwood in there!
