With Stay at Home orders continuing past Mother’s Day in Ontario, Ottawa residents will be trying to find ways to celebrate and pamper moms in a different way this year. Many gifts can be ordered to be shipped, or delivered porch side from various businesses across the City.
If you want to celebrate a special person in your life this Mother’s Day who is a mom or mom-like person of importance, check out these unique gifts that they’ll love.
Sending flowers has long been a standard, and beautiful, gift to send for Mother’s Day. Flowers Talk Tivoli is delivering across the City a selection of fresh cut flowers, gift baskets, plants and more. If you aren’t sure what you want to order, select ‘Elizabeth’s Picks’ and a selection will be hand chosen for you. Order early as some items will sell out.
Pamper mom’s skin with a Mother’s Day gift set from Twenty20 Skincare. The Shea butter will feel amazing and who doesn’t need more lip balm for their desk or purse? You can customize a greeting card message too.
Treat mom to chocolate covered strawberries, or chocolate dipped Oreo cookies, packaged and delivered from Fruit Couture. Can’t decide between strawberries and cookies? There’s a box that will include both. If you really want to have a show stopping gift delivered, order the Pretty in Pink flowers and strawberries tower.
While we may not be able to go out, you can deliver a private social activity with fancy cocktails at home! Ottawa Mobile Bar has created two special menus for delivery in the Ottawa area. One is a wine kit, the other a cocktail kit which comes with all the ingredients needed to make selected drink recipes, and glassware. The wine kit includes additional items for a luxurious bath time experience like bath fizz, soap and a candle. Delivery is for May 8th only.
Once upon a time, many mothers might have been gifted a spa day or service. While spas are currently closed, many are offering gift sets and items that can be purchased for curbside pick up or shipped to the recipient. Cocobella Spa in Orleans has put together special gift boxes with products like Eminence and Bathorium, as well as a spa gift card to be used at a future date (moms have earned that future spa time!)
Surprise mom with a curated gift box from With Love Party Decor. This is only available in the Ottawa area and will be delivered on May 8th. Included in this gift set is a drinking glass, tumbler, candle, sleep mask, bath bomb, a personalized coaster (you’ll want to add all of your customizations before checking out in the notes!) and either rosé or coffee.
While there are a variety of gift boxes created by The Loot Bag Lady to choose from, the Mother’s Day box includes the contributions of four women-owned businesses in the Ottawa area! Each gift contains a package of Animated Coffee, two tasty Rocket Scones, and a jar of Crawfordland jam, all packaged up in a ribbon and tag. Contactless pick up, or shipping, is available.
Look to your favourite local shop
With so many small business owners only able to offer curbside pick up, or local delivery, many are providing unique, and amazing gift options for special occasions like Mother’s Day. Turn to mom’s favourite business as a starting point when you aren’t sure what to get her and you’re likely to find the perfect local gift.
