Top 5 Edible Mother’s Day Gifts from Kitsilano

1. Gift tray from Ayoub’s Dried Fruit and Nuts
Ayoub’s offers gift trays that can be filled with any items in the store – even their killer lime cashews – for $10, $20 or $30. If your “mom” is health conscious, skip the chocolates and create a delicious tray of dried fruits and hand roasted nuts. I love, love, love this place! Ayoub’s Dried Fruit and Nuts, 2040 West 4th, 604-558-2933,

2. Delicious flavoured oil and vinegars from Vancouver Olive Oil Company
Think coconut, lemon, mango and espresso vinegars, and mushroom and sage, butter, and blood orange olive oils! Go when you have time to indulge in their tasting room and pick just the right flavours for mom. At $12/bottle, pick up an oil and vinegar for mom. The store will label and wrap it up so pretty there will be no need for wrapping paper or a gift bag! Vancouver Olive Oil Company, 2571 Broadway, 604-737-7171,

3. Conundrum White Wine from BC Liquor Store
I am certainly not a wine expert, but I LOVE this white wine on a spring day! It is a California blend that is exotic, layered, fruity and exceptionally rich for a white wine. At about $25, it makes the perfect gift for any mom who loves the odd glass of vino! I was stoked when I saw the Liquor Store by my house carrying it.

4. Apricot pistachio granola from Beaucoup Bakery and Fernwood Roasters coffee from Culprit Coffee
The granola is wonderful and comes beautifully and simply packaged, making it a great gift. I suggest you also pick up mom some fresh croissants for breakfast too! Of course, get her some locally sourced coffee to wash it all down too. Beaucoup Bakery, 2150 Fir Street, 604-732-4222,; Culprit Coffee, 2028 Vine Street, 604-730-0133,

5. A box of sweet indulgence teas from David’s Tea
With 12 small packages of loose leaf teas – Buttered Rum, Coco Chai Rooibos, Coffee Pu’erh, Cranberry Pear, Forever Nuts and more – in an adorable little blue box, mom will delight in her calorie free treats. For $24.50, this tea set makes a great gift. David’s Tea, 2230 West 4th, 604) 734-3440,
