Mother’s Day Gift & Recipe Ideas

Mother’s Day is Sunday May 11th! If you’re getting a bit tired of the standby gift of flowers, take a look at your pantry for some inspiration. Whether its breakfast in bed, quick treats for a busy new mum, or a gift basket of comforting favourites, food can be an incredibly thoughtful gift.

Because every mom is unique (and, yes, the best), we have compiled a list of gift ideas for different interests. Use these as a guideline, and really personalize your gift – don’t forget a card!
