Mother’s Day is on Sunday, May 10th this year. That’s coming up fast and we’ve thought of 4 wonderful gift ideas for the mother in your life, with everything available right here in Kitsilano.
4 Kitsilano Mother’s Day Gift Ideas
1. Certified Organic Facial
Treat mom to a certified organic facial at the pure and pretty Bioéthique Spa on West 4th. The 60 minute facial for $115 includes a consultation and assessment followed by a tailored treatment and rejuvenating face, head, neck, shoulder, hand, and arm massage. As a bonus for mom, get her one of the spa’s gorgeous French-made organic skin care products to take home – the Sun Serum is fantastic.
2. Deluxe Breakfast in Bed
Nothing quite beats a delicious breakfast in bed and it’s easy to make when you have great ingredients. Pick up some bubbly from the Kitsilano Wine Cellar, some Mixed Citrus organic cold-pressed juice from Glory Juice, then head to Whole Foods for self-bake croissants, yogurt, coffee beans for a French press, eggs for poaching, and fresh berries. Finally, get a few rustic tarts and the artisan granola from Terra Breads. Voila. A healthy and heavenly breakfast for mom (and I’m sure she’ll share).
3. Perfect Picnic at Vanier Park
How about a bike ride or stroll with mom, along part of the seawall from Kits Beach to Vanier Park, with a picnic somewhere in between? Grab a bag, fill it with a baguette, sandwiches, and salad from Terra Breads. Add some camembert, grapes, and sparkling water from Whole Foods, and finish with chocolates and pastries from Thomas Haas. Use cloth napkins and real silverware for extra points (as long as you do the washing), and don’t forget something hot like coffee or tea in a thermos, a waterproof picnic blanket, and a few umbrellas just in case.
4. Farm to Table Brunch
Take mom out for brunch at one of Kitsilano’s favourite weekend morning spots. For $25, Fable on West 4th is offering a special Mother’s Day Brunch menu that includes a choice of mimosa or large fresh juice, a scone with house-made jam, a choice of brunch entree, plus dessert and coffee. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (604) 732-1322 for reservations. Fable will open at 9:30am on Mother’s Day.
Happy Mother’s Day!
