Mother’s Day will be here before we know it, and more than likely, we’ll still be physical distancing and isolating at home. Whether you need ideas for this year’s special day or you don’t live nearby and already send love and wishes from afar, here are some special gifts to put a smile on her face.
Meal Kit Delivery
Does she love to cook? Send fresh ingredients right to her door with a meal kit delivery plan. Hello Fresh is wonderful for customizing meal preferences while Chefs Plate offers dairy-free and gluten-free options. Both are available in most major centres across Canada.
Charities and community organizations are struggling to raise funds without their regular events and volunteers. Make a donation in her name to a COVID-19 specific fund or, If Mom’s heart rests with a particular cause such as education or animal welfare, consider contributing a monthly gift on her behalf.
Capture the meaning of “Thanks, Mom” with a hand-crafted family birthstone bracelet or stacked ring set with her children’s names. Lisa Leonard (California) has some gorgeous designs and you can search Etsy for shops in Canada.
Is Mom an avid reader? Consider gifting her a selection of new books or classics…which could help all of us focus on something other than the news loop for a little while! You could also gift her audiobooks or eBooks if either is her thing.

A good book is a great escape. Whether you prefer rom-coms, sci-fi or a gripping thriller, getting lost in a new read expands your world without leaving home. We want to see how you’re cozying up to #ReadWell. Snap a photo of the books you're reading or your favourite nook, and tag @indigo and #ReadWell to join our community of booklovers.

Mom will enjoy trying new wines or perhaps a new (local) winery with the gift of wine from the cellar to her doorstep. Kwaf offers a premium delivery service of Ontario wines with no membership fees or contracts.
Gift today and spa tomorrow – WaySpa gift cards never expire, and can be redeemed at hundreds of spas across Canada. Because we’re all going to need a massage when this is over 😉
