With Mother’s Day fast approaching and social distancing measures still in place, you might be spending the holiday a little differently this year. Whether or not you’re able to physically be with your mom on her special day, you can still show her you care!
We’ve put together a list of cozy gifts to pamper and shower your mom with love this spring, even from afar. As we spend more time than ever inside, it’s important that we can make our homes our sanctuary – and that we indulge in rituals that help us feel calm and nourished. These homey gift ideas will help your mom do exactly that.
We’ve carefully curated a list of delectable self-care products from across the country, so you can spoil your mama and support Canadian businesses too. We hope these gifts inspire you to find something that makes your Mom feel truly loved and appreciated this Mother’s Day!
All Natural Bath & Skincare Products
Is there any better way to take away the stress of the day than with a nice, long hot bath? Bath products are sure to be a hit with for any Mom, a gift that promises sweet scents and deep relaxation.

Our go-to for all-natural bath products? Montreal company BKIND. This conscious, sustainable company offers bath, skin, and body care products that are vegan, cruelty-free, and made in Quebec. Their products are compostable and come in recyclable packaging, making them a perfect gift idea for the eco-friendly mama.
Our pick? This floral bath mix for sensitive skin, featuring notes of hibiscus and geranium.
Essential Oils and Diffusers
Give your mom the gift of aromatherapy! Essential oils have a myriad of uses, from freshening up your home with bright, sunny lemon oil to calming and relaxing before bedtime with a few drops of soothing lavender on your pillowcase. You can even boost your immunity with oils like Tea Tree and Eucalyptus!

The best way to use these powerful scents is to purchase a diffuser. Vancouver-company Escents sells both oils and diffusers, as well as bath and body products. Their 100% pure essential oils are sourced from around the world and their in-house blends are crafted in Vancouver.
They even have a Mother’s Day gift box complete with lotions, bubble bath and an essential oil roller in a variety of scents! Choose lavender for the mom that needs to destress and invite calm into her life.
Wool Compression Socks
Is your mama working from home? With many of us stuck inside for most of the day, sitting for long periods of time, we may find our legs tired and restless by the end of the day. Compression socks can help to improve blood flow and circulation. Plus, who doesn’t love putting on a cozy pair of socks while they snuggle up to watch a movie or read their favorite book?
There’s no ritual more delicious than a creamy latte. And now that’s possible for the health-conscious Mom too, thanks to Blume teas. Skip the caffeine and pick her up a tasty tea latte blend. Choose from matcha, turmeric, cacao or beetroot (is there anything prettier than a pink latte?!).

These delightful blends feature healing botanicals to support your Mom with whatever she needs most: whether that’s energy and focus, or an immunity booster, there’s a latte blend for her!
Sometimes when we feel we look good on the outside, we feel good on the inside too. While your Mom might be sporting lots of PJ’s and sweatpants, why not give her a little something to feel more glam?

We hope these ideas help you pick the perfect present for your Mom. Even if you can’t see your Mom on the day itself, a phone call and a thoughtful gift will be sure to put a smile on her face.
