Whether you’re shopping for the best Mother’s Day gifts for a first time mother, an experienced mama or yourself, this guide is filled with all of the best places to shop – and gifts to buy – for Mother’s Day. And bonus: they’re all female-owned businesses local to Edmonton! That’s a big win in my books!
Haiku Lane is one of my favourite places to shop for jewelry. Lindsay’s pieces are timeless, romantic and whimsical, and there is truly something for every one. Everything she designs is absolutely perfect, but here are my favourite pieces to recommend for Mother’s Day:
Jars of Clay has the most stunning custom calligraphy pieces – perfect for any sentimental mama! With everything from watercolour portraits to sweaters, mugs and custom stationary, Dory really has you covered when it comes to shopping for the best Mother’s Day gifts!
Dory also has the sweetest custom homemade cards – which are the perfect addition to any Mother’s Day gift!
Something every mother can appreciate? A hair refresh with an incredible stylist! Robyn is our go-to for all things colour, cut, hair and makeup – and she even hosts classes to teach you all about how to do it yourself! Spoiling a new or experienced mother with a little pampering is always welcomed – because we all know how hard it can be to find the time to treat ourselves. Check out Robyn’s website here!
For something a bit more relaxing, a gift certificate for a massage or yoga class is the perfect way to bring some zen into a hard-working mother’s life. Our recommendation? Local YEG, female-owned Mellow and Move. Mariah is not only talented, but so sweet and lovely to chat with!
Soela is such a fun shop to find some amazing Mother’s Day gift for that special mama in your life! Sofia has a whole collection called PowerHERful for the strong, incredible women in your life. Her motherhood collection is also amazing for finding some special, fun gifts for mamas.
