Mother’s Day is on Sunday, May 12! We try to show our love and care for our moms as often as we can, but this one special day of the year is a great opportunity to show our extra appreciation. Keep reading to see special ideas that will make your mom melt this Mother’s Day.
A Much-Needed Self-Care Session
Because many of us are so busy in our day-to-day lives, we could likely use more self-care. Consider taking your mom out for an enjoyable active time by visiting the YMCA-YWCA at Eagle Creek Village together for a fitness class, yoga class, or maybe even a personal coaching session. Or, visit Revive Lifestyle Medicine and see how holistic evidenced-based principles of internal medicine can help improve your family’s health and lifestyle. Alternatively, consider organizing a little DIY mother-daughter pampering session in the comfort of your own home instead. Grab the latest nail polish shades, bath bombs, facemasks, and body exfoliators from Forbes Pharmacy.
Food Time Could Be a Good Time
Good food plus good company equals a good time. Bring your mom to the Upstairs Café at Quality Foods for a selection of foods like sandwiches, charcuterie boards, wings, sushi, drinks, and more. Or consider picking up some of your mom’s favourite pastries freshly baked from Cobs Bread, or pizza from Villages Pizza.
If you are planning to cook a meal for your mom instead (like bringing her breakfast in bed), you can find fresh produce from Quality Foods. For a selection of wines and other beverages, visit Cascadia Liquor. Get your inspiration going by visiting Epicurious or AllRecipes for fun online recipe ideas.
Speaking of cooking, sometimes there just really isn’t anything that tastes the same as mom’s cooking, but cooking is a lot of work! Make dinner preparations, cooking, and cleaning easier and more enjoyable for your mom as a way of thanking her for all her hard work. Find a collection of colourful and quality cookware, kitchenware, and dishware at A Step Above (located upstairs at Quality Foods).
All About The Trends
If your mom is all about the latest fashion styles, check out FYidoctors and find a pair of stylish designer eyeglasses or sunglasses. FYidoctors proudly carries the latest collection from some of the industry’s most popular brands as well as exclusive frames. Or, consider taking your mom out for a new hairdo or blowout at Great Clips to have her looking gorgeous and feeling refreshed.
The classic duo of a card and bouquet of flowers would make a wonderful gift. Brighten your mom’s day by sharing your favourite memory of the two of you or words of appreciation in a Mother’s Day card, which you can find at Dollar Tree. Pick out your mom’s favourite kinds of fresh cut flowers or potted plant from Quality Foods.
If you’re not sure about the any of the options above, then simply spoil your mom with a gift card from the various shops and services at Eagle Creek Village. Moms can be picky after all (shhh), so this could be the perfect gift!
