Many of us have been spending a lot more time in the kitchen, baking the hours away. It’s no secret that bread has become the most popular choice. If your mom has found comfort in baked goods but isn’t a fan of spending her days stirring and kneading, the Hamilton Beach Premium Dough & Bread Maker will definitely impress. All that’s needed are in the ingredients! You simply add everything in, select the cycle and press start. Made-from-scratch bread and doughs have never been easier to make. Best of all, the machine is dishwasher safe and even has a viewing window.
Favoured by celebs, B Yoga is definitely a crowd-favourite, specifically for their super-grippy yoga mats. From the comfortable cushioning to its superior grip, their everyday mat is perfect for a variety of activities! Whether your mom does slow restorative stretches or super-sweaty and fast-moving HIIT workouts, the mat can go far beyond yoga practices and there’s never been a better time to pick one up! And if you’re looking for a little something extra to pair with the mat, a dreamy silk sleep mask is the way to go. This combo works especially well for those that practice meditation regularly.
There’s truly nothing more relaxing than an at-home spa day, and what better way to treat your hard-working mom than by setting one up? When we think of a relaxing experience, we think of decadent and indulgent bath soaks – which is why we love the ones from Bathorium. They have no artificial fragrances, phthalates, colourants or toxins. They’re made with plant milks, earth clays, mineral salts, essential oils and are sure to create a memorable bath.
Stepping out of a warm bath is a lot better when you have a linen robe waiting for you! Not only do we love flax sleep for their high-quality 100% linen products, but we also love supporting the female-founded Vancouver-based company. Their robe is made with breathable, and super long-lasting, fabric which softens over time, making it a great investment for any mom!
The Robe, $98
A spa day just wouldn’t be complete without luxurious skincare - and when it comes to innovation we can't look past FOREO.

Whether you opt for a dreamy powder blush or a bold matte lipstick, you can expect it to be infused with natural plant oils and extracts.
While there’s definitely a growing choice of products online when it comes to luxury vegan handbags, we’re obsessed with the ones made by ai Toronto Seoul. They have a wide variety of fashion-forward bags and accessories. Plus, the company is female-founded by three daughters and their mother! Their Park Tote is the perfect everyday bag for moms on-the-go. From the adjustable, detachable strap to the portable vanity pouch, it has all the necessary elements for a practical, yet elevated, handbag.
You can never go wrong with gifting jewelry, especially when it’s from the Mother’s Day collection by Pandora. This year’s latest pieces were designed around the infinity symbol, with a modern twist, to signify the endless love between a mother and child. From gorgeous stud earrings to a breathtaking necklace, whichever piece you choose is sure leave your mom speechless.
