Many people default to flowers or chocolates…Which aren’t bad choices per se, but why not step it up this year. So on Sunday, May 8th, show your mom how much she means to you with some creative gifting ideas this year.

Here is our round up of all the best Mother’s Day gifts for 2022.

Mother’s Day Gifts for the Fashion Forward Mom
Every fashion forward mom needs the perfect suit and no one does it better than Canadian brand Judith & Charles. Or how about gifting her a statement coat from Sentaler? Not only are these coats beautiful, but they have a cult like celebrity following that is sure to make mom feel like a star. But if a hipster Mom is on your list, you could gift her the Special Lady baseball cap from OkayOK or chic printed jumpsuit from Hilary MacMillan. Finally, you can’t go wrong with accessories as a gift. The latest trend in bags is the backpack – perfect for the Mom on the go. We love the collection of luxe leather bags from Annick Levesque (and the fact that they all come with light up interiors). If jewels is the way to her heart, check out Anne Marie Chagnon or Melanie Auld for some great Canadian designer jewellery.

Gifts for the Foodie Mom
We know chocolate can be seem like the most stereotypical of Mother’s Day gifts but with Chocolat de Kat that is never the case. Not only are their chocolates delicious and pretty but with over 25 flavours to choose from, the possibility for endless customization means every Mom will be happy. Looking for a gift for the chef Mom? Is she ready to sous vide? Mastering sous-vide cooking at home couldn’t be easier thanks to Zwilling and their sous vide starter kit. It has everything she needs to start mastering the art of sous vide. She will love you for gifting her the perfect foodie gift, and you will benefit from some delicious home cooking. It’s a win win. If Mom spent much of the past two years re-discovering her love of baking, it might be time to upgrade her stand mixer to an Artisan Series Tilt Head Mixer from KitchenAid. It is the go-to mixer for professional and amateur bakers alike. And finally for the coffee lover, may we suggest the Delonghi Magnifica Digital Super Auto Coffee Maker; it allows you to easily prepare barista-quality drinks at the touch of a button. You can easily brew cappuccinos, espresso, long coffee, authentic Italian macchiatos, and much more all from the comforts of home (and when you buy it on eBay.ca, you save money).

Mother’s Day Gifts for the Moms On The Run
Actually we think that every mom is always already on the run – chasing kids mostly. But some moms actually love to run. It’s a great time for them to escape the stress of the day  and clear their minds. They love to lace up a shoes and hit the trails Here are some great Mother’s Day gifts for her:

If Mom really is a runner, she probably needs some great new running shoes. The latest from adidas, the adidas x Allbirds 2.94Kg CO2E running shoes, are great for her feet and the environment. These running shoes combine our expertise in technology with Allbirds’ knowledge of natural materials. From the bio-based midsole to the no-dye upper, they optimize every part of the product cycle to create less waste and reduce carbon emissions — without ever compromising on performance. She will enjoy her run knowing that her impact on the earth is light. Now, we know that Moms who love to exercise, also like to keep track of their fitness wins. So why not gift her the latest from Fitbit? The Fitbit Sense Smartwatch supports all your fitness goals, equipped with a built-in ECG app to detect irregular heartbeats and an EDA scan app to detect electrodermal activity during stress. It also comes with GPS, skin temperature sensors, high and low heart-rate notifications, water resistance, 6-day battery life on one charge and includes a six-month Fitbit Premium membership. And finally, if Mom keeps complaining that she doesn’t have time to hit the gym like she used to, perhaps it’s time to gift her the Peloton Guide. This new at home strength training system from Peloton brings strength training classes right into her home so she can sweat out the stresses of the day and build those muscles.

The all new Cricut Maker 3 is the ultimate cutting machine; it can transform leather, wood, paper, and even  fabric into custom homemade works of art. Or perhaps Mom loves to practice perfect penmanship? We love the fountain pens and custom inks from Canadian brand Ferris Wheel Press. Finally, if Mom is just starting to get into the do it yourself crafting, we suggest a Pyrography Kit from Lee Valley. The kit comes with all the materials and tools for her to make a custom clock and set of coasters.

Gifts for the Wanderlusting Mom
Sometimes the best Mother’s Day gifts are ones about travel or weekends away. We love The Royal Hotel in Picton Ontario. It features stunning rooms, an amazing spa and delicious food from chef Albert Ponzo. Or is Mom more of a city girl? Perhaps book her into a four or five star hotel right in the heart of the city. May we suggest the St Regis in Toronto or The Four Seasons in Montreal. A night away in a luxury hotel for Mom, all by herself, with room service & a spa treatment sounds like the perfect gift to us.

Give the Gift of Breakfast in Bed
As kids we all made our moms breakfast in bed as a Mother’s Day gift. It was probably terrible but she loved it anyway. So why not take her back to those days but with a much better breakfast in bed. You want this to be a Mother’s Day Gift she will remember. First off, make sure Mom has the chicest pyjamas for her lazy Sunday morning in bed. We love the matching Mommy and Me PJ sets from Hatley. This Canadian brand is well known for their comfy pjs with playful prints. Next prepare her some delicious pancakes; trust us, they are much easier than eggs. And forget Mimosas this year. Opt instead for a Cotton Candy Champagne Cocktail made with Saintly Sparkling Rosé. It’s the most delicious modern twist on a champagne cocktail.

Mother’s Day Gifts of Self Care
A lot of Moms need a little extra pampering and self care. Sure you could book her into a spa (like the Spa at the Ritz Carlton or The Willow Stream Spa at Fairmont Pacific Rim). But why not gift her some great products so she can experience self care at home all year round? For the ultimate in self care, we recommend the seasonal bundle from Cure Skincare. It features the brand’s signature face + neck serum, a boosting mist, and hand + cuticle serum. We assure you that Mom will love all this luxe skincare products from this independent Canadian brand. Next, pick her up some great bath salts from Bathorium. And finally, she needs a Drake candle. That’s right, Canadian music mogul Drake is once again dabbling in fragrance (and his label Better World Fragrance House) with the release of a limited edition collection of five candles. The collection is available for a limited time at more than 200 Shoppers Drug Mart and Pharmaprix locations across the country. So get one for Mom before they sell out.

Tech Gifts for the Cyber Moms
If Mom is an avid reader, it might be time to bring her into the future with an eReader from Kobo. The new Kobo Elipsa is a book, a notebook, and bookstore combined into one amazing tablet. The Amazon Echo Show 8 just might be the best tech gift for under $100 for Mother’s Day because it’s an all-in-one gift—it serves as a smart home assistant, a way to make video calls, and as a digital frame so your mom can show off her favourite photos of you. Finally upgrade Mom’s sound system at home with the latest from SONOS. Whether you opt for the Roam or the Five, Mom will be dancing the night away at home as she cranks up the tunes.
