Gift Ideas Your Mother Will Love

May 5, 2020

Despite losing track of what day it is while living in social isolation, we can’t forget a special holiday coming up: Mother’s Day. With social distancing in place, non-essential stores still closed, and restaurant dining shuttered until further notice, our typical Mother’s Day traditions will certainly look different this year, but it can still be special.

It seems as though every year, we all struggle with what to get our moms, or we hear the classic line “I don’t need anything” (definitely mine) — so we wanted to help you out with some gift ideas that are a fit for every special woman in your life – whether it’s your mother, mother-in-law, wife, grandmother or an auntie.

We hope these ideas help you find something to brighten her day. Luckily, many of these local businesses offer online ordering, curbside pick-up or free delivery!

Flowers: It’s hard to find a gift that expresses just how much a mother means to you, but a bouquet of fresh blooms comes close, especially when they arrive right to her door.

  • Wascana Flower Shoppe (Regina)
  • Gale’s Florist (Regina)
  • Wish Home & Gift (Emerald Park)

Spas: If there’s something all parents are craving right now, it’s time to relax and recharge. Consider purchasing a gift card to use once it’s safe to do so.

  • Soma Salon & Spa (Regina)
  • Co-Co Nail Lounge (Regina)
  • Essence Saskatoon (Saskatoon)

Restaurants: Nothing says Mother’s Day like a delicious breakfast in bed…after a sleep-in that is!  Several restaurants are still open for free delivery and curb side pickup so you could order the menu items your mom loves and recreate the ambiance at home.

  • Fireside Bistro (Regina)
  • Memories Dining & Bar (Regina)
  • Rock Creek & Grill (Regina & Saskatoon)
  • Melrose Place (Yorkton)

Jewelry: Find the perfect gift that suits her unique style and personality from these local businesses who offer a selection of delicately, hand-crafted jewelry.

  • Elizabeth Lyn Jewelry (Saskatoon)
  • Alie and Elise (Regina)
  • Oneiro (Saskatoon)
  • Hillberg & Berk (Provincial)

Cleaning Services: Now this is a way to any woman’s heart! Hire a cleaning service or purchase a gift card to help your mom tackle some of those cleaning jobs on her to-do list.

  • Tidy Time Saver Ltd (Regina & Saskatoon)
  • Kim Cleaning Service (Regina)
  • Merry Maids (Saskatoon)

Home & Gift: When you purchase a piece of home décor, your mother will think of you every time she looks at it. Consider one of these local businesses who carry unique and gorgeous gifts:

  • Dutch Growers (Regina & Saskatoon)
  • Crocus & Ivy (Regina)
  • Wish Home & Gift (Emerald Park)
  • All About Flowers Gourmet Gifts & Home Décor (Yorkton)
  • Meadow Rose Floral Home & Gift (Rosthern)

Aside from gifts, the most important gift of all is to say, “I love you”. Many moms are feeling a lot of big feelings this year with quite the juggling act, dealing with extra-stressful work situations, looking out for their loved ones’ well-being and living with uncertainty.

Happy Mother’s Day, however you choose to celebrate it this year!
