Very Special Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

The Perfect Mother’s Day Gift is for More than Just Sipping

Once again we are celebrating all of the incredible moms who impact our lives. And once again, we are looking for ways to share our appreciation in creative ways while keeping socially distant. As rules are constantly changing across the country, it’s important to find a way to give a special gift without having to worry about travelling or restrictions. Which is why we’re proud to share our WineCollective Mother’s Day gift ideas! We offer amazing, hard-to-find wine from around the world, but our gifts are so much more. Go beyond the wine and see some innovative ways Mom can enjoy her WineCollective subscription.

Mother’s Day Craft Ideas

DIY Cut Glass Bottle Craft

The top of the wine bottle has been cut off and it is acting as a vase, holding a bouquet of flowers.

While our favourite way to appreciate wine is to drink it, there are many more ways to enjoy wine (and your favourite bottles). One of which being: displaying flowers! Floral arrangements are synonymous with Mother’s Day and we think there is no better way to display a fresh bouquet than in your favourite wine bottle.

We see so many beautiful, artistic wine labels and it’s a shame to have them end up in the recycling bin. Why not proudly display them? You can keep the entire bottle in tact to hold a few stems, or cut the glass bottle at the base of the neck for a wider opening. There are many online tutorials for wine bottle cutting, including this one that we used. They’re great Mother’s Day gift ideas and a great use for the bottles Mom will have from her new WineCollective subscription.

DIY Candles for Mother’s Day

Now that you’ve mastered the art of wine bottle cutting (it can take some practice and elbow grease), why not make homemade candles? Once Mom has enjoyed some of her wine, this is a great afternoon activity to enjoy together.

  • By cutting the wine bottles to whatever height you like and carefully sanding the edges, you will have the perfect candle vessel.
  • There are many tutorials available and video guides on how to make candles at home. We love this craft idea and even think it would be a great Mother’s Day gift to present Mom with her WineCollective gift subscription!

Since our gifts start shipping in June, let Mom know she’ll be getting some wine soon. Or wait and make some candles together, when you’re able to.

A Wine Education

Now that you’ve learned the special ways Mom can enjoy her WineCollective Mother’s Day gift, what about the actual wine?! We have been sharing wine with Canadians since 2009 and pride ourselves on not only providing an amazing selection of bottles, but also sharing a full wine experience. Mother’s Day gift recipients receive:

  • 3 bottles of wine (all red or mixed)
  • monthly wine guide including tasting notes, food pairings, and more
  • access to special member pricing in our online store
  • sustainable shipping products that are compostable in most Canadian locations

WineCollective is a great Mother’s Day gift idea because you are not just providing Mom with wine to enjoy. She will learn about wine from her favourite wine regions, and some that she hasn’t explored yet! We can all use some daydreaming about Tuscany or the Andes Mountains. Now is the perfect time to give Mom the best wine experience possible! It’s just what she deserves.
