Looking for something for Mom for that special day coming up? We’ve got a few great ideas that she’ll not only adore, but you can proudly tell her that you’ve kept it local. Check out these mother’s day gifts in Toronto.
Tonic Blooms x Leeloodles Bouquet has recently launched a special collaboration with 8 year old Toronto artist Leeloodles. The “Leeloo bouquet” features flowers which the young artist drew in an illustration that is also featured on a limited edition tote bag. Leeloo started designing t-shirts for friends and family and soon people on the street began wanting her designs. With funds from her t-shirt sales, Leeloo was able to adopt a Polar Bear at the Toronto Zoo. When you order this bouquet+tote bag collab, 10% of the proceeds will go to Nova’s Ark community programs — Leeloo’s current charity of choice.
Moms need to remember to take care of themselves and a great skincare line is welcomed. Graydon Plant Powered Skincare product line was inspired by her personal health and wellness journey. She’s extensively researched and tested the power of using pure plant-based ingredients in her luxurious line of products. This gift bundle includes three of our favourites: Hair Smoothie, all Over Soap, and All Over Face + Body Lotion.

The city is filled with moms who can relate to Rebel Mamas and their blog therebelmama.com who unite over their no-holds barred posts.

Silver is a perfect metal for everyday wear that mom can wear from the office to junior’s soccer game and to date night. I’m working on this one…
We’re seeing pretty scalloped finishing pop up everywhere and we love this beautiful stoneware clay handmade bowl by Etsy artisan Hinkleville who has a background in studio based visual arts and art history. Her work is unique, fun and meant to be used. Not just pretty things to be admired.
Quiet moments for mom are often cherished especially with a great book in hand.

Full of secrets and intrigue this story takes readers on a journey of the prestige and uncovers surprising truths. Author Goodman is also CEO of Au Lit Fine Linens a family-run business in the city.
