Mother's Day is approaching, Toronto! A big city is one of the best places to celebrate this special day, as it offers plenty to do and shopping opportunities abound. Planning an exciting excursion or thoughtful gift is key to showing Mom just how much you care about and appreciate her. If you haven’t yet decided on something, choose from one of the following activities and gift ideas.
Mother's Day Walk 2014
If your Mother or Grandmother is a survivor or supporter, tackle the Breast Cancer Society's annual walk as a team! A popular tradition for many families, it's a great way to give back, raise funds for a great cause and spend some quality time together.
Tea and Truffle Pairing
The Toronto Botanical Garden is offering a special tea and truffle pairing. Hosted by a certified tea sommelier, a range of teas will be paired with different chocolates for a delightful gastronomic experience.
Brunch at Casa Loma
Make your typical brunch outing more fabulous at Casa Loma. Seatings are available at 10am, 12pm and 2pm, and reservations are required. Moms deserve to dine in a castle!
Who doesn't love chocolate? A Chocolate Tour, held on the Saturday in Trinity Bellwoods, is a great way to expand Mom's appreciation for this delectable dessert. Stroll through the neighbourhood and enjoy a range of samples from 4 different shops, alongside interesting discussion. Mom goes home with a personalized gift if you book by May 7th.
If Mom prefers sweets, this tour is for her. Explore Kensington Market's 5 different sweet shops and enjoy samples, discounts and an in-depth history along the way. Start times are at 2pm and 430pm. Book by May 7th and Mom receives a customized gift.
When it comes to choosing the perfect Mother's Day gift, keeping Mom's preferences and interests in mind is key. A dainty bracelet in gold or silver is sure to please fine jewelry-lovers, while a more sentimental piece, such as a personalized charm necklace, offers something she can keep dear to her heart. Look to her hobbies – does she enjoy art, gardening, decorating or personal fitness? A related item is ideal. Pamper her with that lusted-after designer bag or wallet. Mom hard to please? Try a gift certificate for an afternoon of bliss in the form of a massage, facial or mani-pedi.
