THE PERFECT Mother's Day Gift Ideas: Mother's Day Gift Guide, small business edition.

1. For the Plant Loving Mom

House plants in cute pots for Mother's Day gift

Let's be honest - plants are the new flowers (although I'm sure she would love some of those too!) We suggest heading to your local plant shop and grabbing your mom a new plant and cute pot to go with it! Our local Sarnia favourites are Paulina's Flower Shoppe, Degroots Nurseries, and Sipkins Nurseries

Or if your mom is a flower fiend consider getting her a flower subscription. Fresh flowers to her door every month? Oh heck yes! Our go-to local gal is Flora & Florage who offers a flower subscription with delivery or pick-up! Learn more online at

2. For the Comfy Mom

If your mom doesn't own a HomebodyHILL sweatshirt yet we need to change that ASAP. And if she already does, well then she knows how cozy they are and it's time to add to her collection!

HomebodyHILL has so many different sweatshirt options, and a lot of them are even mom themed. We carry this one in our shop and you can check out even more styles on their website at

She's not like a regular mom, she's a cool mom! Or at least let her think she is.

Huron Glass promotes handcrafted, one of a kind, eco friendly jewelry. All of their pieces reflect a minimal, beach-inspired design that captures the beauty of Lake Huron with a unique beach glass that is hand picked & unaltered. 

We love the idea of gifting beach glass jewelry with a Stray & Wander Turkish Towel for a full beach inspired gift box! Shop these two beach brands in our online store.

7. For the Foodie Mom

Hang on, we're drooling over here. If your mom loves charcuterie as much as we do (and let's be real, who doesn't) then we're thinking you need to check out The Charcuterie Box.

Or if you're feeling confident and want to DIY your own charcuterie board grab a Bevel and Barrel handmade, reclaimed wood charcuterie board from our shop and head to your favourite market to load up on the goodies! 

8. For the Wine Loving Mom



Two words: Wine. Subscription. We know, we're freaking out too. 

Wine collective is a Canadian monthly wine subscription and they have a service specifically for gifting! Each month your mom will receive 3 expertly curated wines (choose between essentials or premium) and a wine tasting guide all in sustainable packaging. You get to choose how long the subscription is too - anywhere from 1 month to one year!

Added bonus: You'll know when the wine arrives at her house so you can just happen to stop by ... we don't judge.
