This Shop Local: Unique Mother’s Day Gift Guide features charming picnics, curated boxes, ice cream delivery, cocktail kits and more!
Mother’s Day is almost here and I honestly can’t believe it! Snuck up so fast. Like you, I like to find fun new ways to get creative with gifts and I know you’re going to love these! If you’re not local to the Edmonton area – have no fear! Some of this stuff you can shop online or (at the very least) snag the ideas and search for businesses in your hometown doing something similar.
After you’re done here, be sure to check out Five Ways To Treat Mom When You Can’t Be With Her – a post I wrote last year which (as we’re still in this nasty pandemic), still applies.
Party & Confetti Balloons: How fun are these Mother’s Day Edition Skinny Balloon Boxes?! Choose from three different themes and the box will arrive inflated and assembled. Details on ordering here.
Picnic Experience: Take mom on a picnic or gift her a special card to invite her on the date later in the year. True North Picnic specializes in “charming picnic packages set in beautiful surrounding parks”. All you have to do is book online and show up! They have several packages available with all the decor, cushions, blankets, table, food, etc. set up for you. They even have bug spray, hand sanitizer, and disinfecting wipes on hand as well. Check them out here.
Mama + Baby Portrait Sessions: Photographer Dallas Curow is offering her gorgeous Mama + Baby Portrait Sessions on Saturday, May 1 which can be ready in time for Mother’s Day! The photos are shot on Dallas’ front porch in order to safely photograph and maintain social distance. Open to moms with kids of any age and grandmas too (as long as you’re in the same household or have been seeing each other in a child care capacity). All the details and booking info is right here.
Little Icons Portraits: Absolutely stunning kid portraits by Ashley Champagne (Little Icons) would make such a nice gift for Mother’s Day. You can take the kids and surprise mom with the photos or gift her the experience of going with them to have the pictures taken. The sessions are 15 minutes long and you get four digital files. Little Icons just opened up a brick and mortar studio on 124th street AND just opened up brand new sessions for bookings today! Do it here.
