Although we cherish our mothers every day of the year, Mother’s day is an excuse to shower them with our time and attention to show them that we appreciate their years of love.
This Mother’s Day, treat your mothers, your grandmothers, your wives — every mother in your life with a small token of your affection.
The gifts in this guide have been carefully curated by LIV Design Studios and selected from local businesses in our home of Vancouver plus a few of our favourite places to shop.
We welcome you to enter our giveaway, full of incredible offerings chosen specifically to put a smile on mom’s face this year. Whether your mom has classic, elegant, or trendsetting style — there’s a wealth of breathtaking options that would please any mom.
We should treat our moms every day of the year! Small things often mean the most – phone calls, text messages etc. A gift to moms is another reminder of how important they are to us and the role they play in our lives.Rochelle Morran, Interior Designer
Mother’s Day gifts for the home
Gift mom with a way to bring freshness and fragrance to any corner of her home. The Move Diffuser is cordless, so she can bring it in the bathroom with her when it’s time for a relaxing bath or set it up in the kitchen to bless the space with a refreshing scent. Select a bundle of four, six, or eight essential oils or blends including stimulating eucalyptus, familiar and floral lavender, and many more.
Transform her powder room into an elegant modern retreat with this collection of ribbed glass bathroom accessories edged in matte black. She will be delighted to have a matching set to tie together the space.
Hana by Celsia
No Mother’s Day would be complete without an abundance of blossoms. Gift her with a dramatic, showstopping bouquet from Hana by Celsia. Each bouquet is individually designed. Their pastel-hued Mother’s Day Collection and the Madam Rouge arrangement will please any mom who knows her hyacinths from her hydrangeas.
Mother’s Day happens at the height of spring when the gardens are in full bloom and the warmth of the sun is growing stronger each day. Treat the mothers in your life to a rattan Luxe Limòn Lounger and allow them a moment to bliss out in a Bali-inspired lap of luxury at home and enjoy the splendour of spring.
Mothers gifted with green thumbs will love this addition of a tropical Monstera Deliciosa from West Coast Jungle to their collection. This plant will be a statement piece in her home and can instantly update any room where it seeks a little sun.
A wonderful gift idea for mothers who treasure the earth and value practicality is this Zero Waste Shopping Kit. Imagine them tucking their fresh produce into these luxurious cloth bags, elevating their next trip to Whole Foods in a new and exciting way.
Mother’s Day gifts for foodies
La Fabrique St-George
If your mother hasn’t been able to take a trip to wine country lately, bring her a bottle of the most hyperlocal vino available. La Fabrique St-George is hidden in the Mount Pleasant area and creates fresh and unique wines. Additionally, you can pick up a few kinds of cheese and charcuterie pieces to make her a customized gift basket, too.
The Graze Company
The Mother’s Day Brunch Graze Box is a gift that would please anyone at any time of year, but it will make Mother’s Day just that much more special for your mom. As breathtakingly ornate as a painting, the act of eating breakfast on Sunday morning becomes sublimated into a ritual.
Included are Belgian waffles, mini croissants, smoked salmon lox, capers and cream cheese, and more plus everything you need to make mimosas.
It’s hardly a Mother’s Day celebration without cake. Whether you favour a decadent slice of chocolate or classic vanilla — Trafiq is a Vancouver bakery that creates dense, moist, and flavourful cakes. You will savour every forkful and it will become mom’s new favourite.
Mother’s Day skincare gifts
The Fig Face
It’s time mom was gifted a facial from high tech and uber-stylish skincare haven, Fig. From texture & collagen facials to contactless light-therapy skin boosts, there’s a unique facial here your mom hasn’t tried yet.
For fair-faced moms who crave a little more colour, Salty Face’s gradual tanning water is bottled magic. A tan that goes on clear and slowly develops over four to eight hours will give her skin a natural glow.
Splurge on sophisticated and minimalist makeup essentials to top up mom’s cosmetic bag. From their complexion stick and blending brush to their tinted lip oil — these modern products will make mom glow at your next family dinner out.
Mother’s Day fashion & accessories gifts
A simple and elegant Diamond Necklace from Ana Luisa will be a trinket she wears to work or to dinner for years to come. Made out of recycled gold and featuring a lab-grown diamond, this is an ethically and environmentally responsible jewellery choice for a mom.
Add to mom’s jewellery box with finery from Vancouver-based Leah Alexandra. These classic pieces are so timeless that you’ll be tempted to keep adding to your cart. Crown your mom with the Reign Cuff (pictured left) and Roma Hoops (pictured right) for a subtle yet regal look.
Additionally, for a unique gift, bring mom with you to Leah Alexandra’s pop-up Spark Studio at the Fairmont Pacific Rim. You can “get sparked” together with an elegant gold or silver update to the friendship bracelet — a weightless chain cut perfectly to fit your wrist that’s then sealed, or sparked so that you can wear it always.
AW by Andrea Wong
Pick up made to order face mask for mom. One can never have too many, and these ones are made with 100% cotton and have a PM2.5 filter inside. There are a variety of styles available, but our favourite is a luscious floral design like this.
From all of us at LIV Design Studio, we wish a happy Mother’s Day to all the strong and beautiful mothers of the world and hope that you enjoy a treasured moment with your own family this month.
