This year, Mother’s Day falls on May 10th. With the Stay at Home order still in effect you may need to get a little bit creative with your Mother’s Day gift ideas. Below is a Greater Victoria’s Mothers Day Gift Guide that will help you to treat mom and support a local business at the same time!
Salon Gift Cards
Most Moms are in dire need of a cut and a colour, and a mani-pedi sounds like a real luxury right now as well. Salons are closed for now, but many are selling gift cards. Purchasing a gift card from moms favourite salon will help businesses pay the rent; and she can enjoy being pampered as soon as they open. Click here for Greater Victoria Salon & Spa’s

Mother’s Day Dinner from a Local Restaurant

Plants and Flowers for Mom’s Garden
Mother’s Day means it’s time for gardening and luckily most local nurseries are open right now! It’s a great time to buy Mom some hanging plants or vegetables for her garden. Most also have gift cards available.
Supplies for Mom’s Home Projects
With all this staying at home, many Mom’s are working on home projects. Our local hardware stores are open and the perfect place to pick up paint, tools, mulch and get the help and attention that the big box stores can’t supply.
Sweets and Treats from Your Local Bakery
I bet Mom would love to wake up to some amazing baked goods or donuts on Mother’s Day! Or maybe a cake to enjoy after dinner. Check out this list of Greater Victoria Donut Shops and order Mom’s favourite Treat.
Music from Mom’s favourite Band
Musicians are not allowed to work in public right now and they are struggling. Find the facebook page or website for Mom’s favourite musician or band, and buy their music or merchandise directly from them.
Let’s not forget the Dog Moms!
If you have a favourite Dog Mom in your life, you can order a gift card from your local groomer, dog training lessons or walks.
