1. Spa Day or Wellness Retreat

Think of a Spa Day or Wellness Retreat as a pause button for your mom's busy life—a chance for her to unwind, recharge, and be pampered. Think of it as more than just an appointment; it's an acknowledgment of her hard work, love, and everything she does, often behind the scenes. This gift says, "I see you, and you deserve to be treated like the queen you are." 

Look up a local spa and get your Mom the pampering she deserves. 

2. My Life in a Book Subscription

Ever wanted to learn more about your Mom's amazing life?

Well, this unique gift on our list is not to be missed. This is a gift she will truly appreciate, a gift that will make her feel seen and heard & will strengthen your family bonds. 

My Life in a Book is a special book that helps capture the life story of your Mother. 

Each week, she gets a question about her life, all she has to do is respond with a story. In the end, all her stories, memories and photos get turned into a beautiful keepsake book, preserved for generations to come. A unique way to celebrate her life this Mother's Day.

3. Gourmet Gift Basket

If you can spare some time to sit with your mom and ask her a few questions, then this could become a really meaningful gift. 

Imagine sitting down with your mom, brainstorming the ultimate snack spread. That's your blueprint for the perfect Gourmet Gift Basket. Ask her about those artisanal jams she raves about, snag a block of that fancy cheese she's always wanted to try, and don't forget ask her about her favourite sparkly drink. It's like putting together a puzzle of her favorite flavors, each piece a testament to the little things you've remembered. And there, nestled between the treats, a note from you, making this culinary collection a heartfelt feast.

Simple yet meaningful. 

4. Recipe Book

Do you have a childhood dish that you love? A dish that whenever you try make, it just doesn't taste the same as your Moms? 

Well, this is a gift that is not only meaningful (but also useful for you!) Find a scrapbook or even use My Life in a Book to ask your mom about that special recipe(s).

Make sure it's not just about listing ingredients and steps. Try recalling the warmth of shared meals, the comfort of familiar flavours, and the adventure of culinary experiments gone awry or triumphantly right. 

A simple way to tell her that she rocks (& also how much you love her recipes)

5. Story-Prompt Jar

The "Story Prompt Jar," (inspired by My Life in a Book), is another unique, interactive and simple gift.

Get a jar, any jar. Fill it up with a variety of prompts and questions designed to evoke memories and encourage storytelling. As your mom picks each prompt, she'll reflect and write down her life stories, thoughts, and memories in a journal book.

The "Story Prompt Jar," while simple in concept, unfolds as a deeply impactful gift. It reminds your mom further beyond mother's day that you love her and wish to celebrate her beautiful life.
