YVR Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Mother’s Day is just around the corner (coming up this Sunday) and we’ve sleuthed around town to round up a few noteworthy gifting picks guaranteed to make it a memorable day for mom (and land Vancouver YPs in the good books for months to come!)

Go beyond your go-to brunch spots when searching for a memorable place to take mom for a bite this Mother’s Day. Treat her to a seat with a stunning view and head over to The Teahouse in Stanley Park for their special a la carte brunch service.  She’ll enjoy their Mom-Mosa’s and tasty selection of west coast cuisine (like their Dungeness Crab Eggs Benedict) and you’ll like the fact that it doesn’t break the budget. 

Another brunching option we recommend: treat her to brunch at one of Vancouver’s most acclaimed hot-spots and head to Hawksworth at the swanky-yet-serene Rosewood Hotel in the heart of downtown. Hosted in their stunning Pearl Room, enjoy a carefully crafted menu reflecting refined taste and the perfect twist on breakfast classics like their House Corned Beef served with sunnyside eggs, grainy mustard and caramelized onions.

This Sunday, treat your mother to a tranquil escape from the everyday and book into one of our Notable favourites, Sabai Thai Spa. We recommend you take advantage of their Mother’s Day Pure Serenity promotion that will give her a full-body massage and organic facial for under $100.  At that price, why not make it a double date and book one for yourself as well?  

Up the ante on her special day and score the key to your mom’s heart (like you haven’t already) and help ensure that she never loses her set with the Return to Tiffany™ key ring in sterling silver (valued at $140, pictured above). This stylishly practical gift is one your mom will treasure forever – not to mention the smile she’ll have when she opens that little blue box!

Looking for the perfect bouquet to add to mom’s day? Grab a gorgeous arrangement or gift idea from these noteworthy spots around town.  If you’re in the Coal Harbour hood, we recommend you pop by to see Mark at Coal Harbour Florist’s next to the Marina.  This cheerful space offers more than just fresh-cut fabulousness – you’ll find thoughtful Mom-minded gifts, candles and plenty more at a great price. 

Alternatively, opt to give the gift of flower power and grab your mom a few class passes at Olla Flowers, located in Gastown. With a calendar full of interesting and creative workshops (Guerrilla Gardening, Terrarium-building caught our eye), you’ll help mom unleash her green thumb and get gardening.
