Gift idea #1 is Nina Marchewka's amazing hand made ceramic mugs. She's done a new batch for us in a creamy glaze mixed with a textured rustic clay. These can be found in the Goods section at West or in the Goods Webstore. The perfect accompaniment to her favourite warm comforts (maybe throw in a can of cocoa for her as well - and some bailey's!)
|Selection of letter stamped mugs available.|
|Mugs are all $35.|
7 ml - $26, 30ml - $76. Available at all three locations and online.
We also have some wonderful perfumes by Province Apothecary that provide a nice, not overbearing, scent. They are free of dyes and synthetic materials, and free from all that other bad stuff! It's a gift that she wouldn't necessarily buy for herself because it is more of a treat, and how often do moms treat themselves? Mom will love it.
Province Apothecary Perfume - $46 - available at all three locations and online.
We have a variety of scents available at all three locations and online. We also have a selection of therapeutic roll ons that are calming and soothing. You can find them in stores and online.
Now if you want to treat your mom to something really special, look no further than Ilsa Loves Rick. Their jewelry is so elegant and understated. Their pieces are made from 14k gold fill or rose gold fill and sterling silver and can be worn everyday without feeling fancy. We have an array of rings, bracelets, earrings and necklaces to choose from.
Ilsa Loves Rick - Left: Bakers Dozen Necklace, $175. Centre: The Circle - $99. Right: Oval - $99. All 3 available at Dalhousie and Wellington.
Gift idea #4 is perfect for the mom on the go (which we all know is EVERY mom - like seriously when do they ever stop!?). The Lili purse by Cantin is minimalist in design, but holds every ounce of style. It's compact but fits all the essentials, and she won't have to dig around trying to find her car keys. It's made from felted wool and leather, which means it's made to last. She can knock this bag around and it will stand the test of time.
Cantin Lili Purse - $160 - available at Dalhousie, Wellington and online. Also comes in soft grey felt with black leather.
Another great option for a mom who loves to cook are these cutting boards by Ottawa's Drew Moseley. Made from Santos Mahogany, it's durable and beautiful. If your mom is like mine, she can never have too many cutting boards.
Drew Moseley Cutting Board - ranges from $65-$95 depending on size - available in the Goods section on Wellington or on their website.
Now go surprise your mom with one (or some!) of these amazing gifts!
