Mother’s Day is all about making Mom smile. The holiday is quickly approaching and you’re likely looking for a gift that tells Mom just how you appreciate her. That’s a tall order, but stores around Yonge and Eglinton carry a great selection. Here are our favourite picks for Mom this year.
Drake General Store
This independent shop is filled with interesting and unique items that make for memorable gifts. If the mom in your life has a good sense of humour, she might like the “Word To Your Mother” mug that immortalizes the famous Vanilla Ice lyrics.
For active moms, Sporting Life is home base. No matter what Mom choses to do to stay active, a Fitbit fitness tracker will help keep her motivated. The sleek wristband will monitor the user’s heart rate and measure their progress.
It can be so hard to choose the right book for someone else. This is why you can rest easy if you choose A God In Ruins by Kate Atkinson. This is the companion book to her bestseller Life After Life, and it’s already pleasing readers and critics alike. If your mom is a reader, she’ll be happy to add this to her library.
The selection of delicious teas at David’s Tea is unmatched in the city. But perhaps even better are their gift sets. Choose from seasonal collections, teapots, special tea mugs and even a gift set just for mom.
We’ll cross our fingers for nice weather and hope to see you and your family on one of the neighbourhood patios.
