Celebrating Mom Like She Deserves
Many holidays are synonymous with spending time with loved ones. Whether it’s large family dinners for Christmas or a festive birthday brunch, Canadians love celebrating with their friends and family. 2020 has not been a typical year for anyone and we are experiencing exceptional times. These measures are impacting how we can celebrate important people in our lives, including Mother’s Day. No matter who the Mom is in your life — spouse, friend, caregiver, neighbour, or parent — they deserve all the appreciation you can give. We want to share some ways you can still celebrate Mom with a great Mother’s Day gift, without being in the same room.
Obviously, Moms Love Wine
We couldn’t miss this opportunity to share our 2020 Mother’s Day gifts. Every year we create great gifting options that will delight any lucky Mom who is interested in wine. This year especially, it’s so easy to send a gift of wine to that special Mom who deserves a few great bottles. With limited resources available locally, getting wine shipped is the easiest way to enjoy wine these days. And with WineCollective, you know that the bottles Mom gets will be great.
We scour the world looking for the best wine and often share vintages, varietals, and wineries that you can’t get in stores. Shop our 1, 2, and 3 month gift options and get some awesome wine in Mom’s hands, without either of you leaving the house!
Brunch: A Mother’s Day Gift Classic
A tried and true celebration of Moms is brunch. And while having a traditional brunch may not be possible right now, there are some inventive ways to still show Mom you care with a great meal. Many great, local restaurants are still offering delivery or take out services, which is an excellent way to support small businesses and eat great food!
Using food delivery services means you can easily send brunch right to Mom’s door:
All of these services offer delivery across Canada. What a great surprise to give! There is also the option of picking up a basket or prepared meal from a local vendor or restaurant and having a “distant picnic”. If the weather is great where you are on May 10th, why not set out some blankets 2 metres apart, and enjoy brunch that way! We even have some great Rosé that would accompany an outdoor, socially distant breakfast.
Time For a New Hobby
There is no better time than now to further explore existing hobbies or taking on a new one! As our days of social distancing has gone on, have you noticed Mom talking more about her knitting? Maybe she’s learning to paint or is excited about getting back into the garden. This is the perfect time to really listen, not that we don’t always listen to our moms…
Take some time to scout out local shops that now offer online shopping, delivery, or curb-side pickup so that you can still support the businesses in our communities that need the help. Craft kits and adult colouring books can be found at tons of bookstores. As spring moves along and we’re getting more sun, local greenhouses will also likely be offering plenty of great gift options. Shop local and ask around for shopping ideas!
A Mother’s Day To Remember
It’s unlikely that most of us will forget this Mother’s Day. It’s easy to get into the routine of being at home working, spending more time with the kids, and adjusting to new schedules. However these kinds of changes in our lives are felt even more on holidays when we can’t spend time with one another like we used to. If gifting isn’t an option for you this Mother’s Day, don’t worry. What Moms want most is for their loved ones to be cared for and happy. So at the very least, take the time to call, email, or video chat with the special Mom in your life, no matter who she is.
