Spring has finally blossomed and Mother’s Day is just around the corner. If you’re still trying to find a special gift for Mom, we`ve put together a list of gift ideas and items you`ll find at the finest stores in Downtown Milton.
Express your love with a lasting impression
Available at Halton Hills Fine Jewellery, Dimples™ fingerprint impression jewellery is a thoughtful way to celebrate the special bond between Mother and child. Choose from a selection of charms, necklaces or the adorable Mother and Child print on print where the baby`s fingerprint is pressed on top of the Mother`s impression. Fingerprint jewellery takes a few weeks to process, but gift certificates are offered for Mother`s Day.
Ideas for the Techie Mom
If your Mom loves tech gadgets, MS Cellular is your first-choice shopping destination for great ideas and deals! They carry a vast selection of cases, from rhinestone bedazzled, pink passion to bamboo-inspired designs, for Mom’s favourite smartphone. Another nifty item Mom might love is the “Survivor” Military tablet case. It`s the strongest case you can buy and offered in a variety of fun colours and patterns.
Almost every Mom loves the soothing tranquillity of a spa. There are four exceptional spas located in Downtown Milton offering their own unique assortment of services. In celebration of Mother's Day, Total Skin & Body Spa is providing complimentary champagne and treats (Friday and Saturday only). Choose from their three spa services at discounted prices or a custom spa package gift certificate.
Make Mom giggle with the GurglePot™
So, what exactly is a GurglePot™? Only available locally at Milton Greenhouses Flower & Gift Shop, this durable stoneware pitcher makes a blurp, blurp, blurp sound like gurgling fish when pouring liquid with or without ice. It’s a fun, conversation piece available in a wide spectrum of colours and perfect for the garden terrace or a multitude of other uses.
Mom’s Day Out - Home Decor Shopping Tour
Let Bergsma’s Paint & Decor inspire Mom’s next home design project. Gift certificates can be purchased towards a variety of décor items, custom sofas and accent chairs or in-home design and colour consultations. Be sure to also ask about their new shopping tour trips, guided in the morning or afternoon, for exclusive access to Bergsma’s vendor showrooms.
D.I.Y. Beauty & Bling in a Basket
Another way to pamper Mom is with a basket of beauty care items especially for her tastes and your budget. Stop by A Country Mile and ask about the whimsical Kameleon™ Jewellery Mother’s Day Gift Set or visit Gold Dollar Exchange offering special discounts on selected custom jewellery. Complete the basket with a colour service and full make-up voucher from Jameel De Stefano Hair Salon & Spa. Wrap it up with your own creative flare and voila! A beautiful D.I.Y. basket tailor-made by you for Mom!
The Gift of Health & Wellness
Your Mom is the taxi driver, coach, party planner, doctor…and the list goes on. She does an exceptional job taking care of her family…now it’s time to take care of her. Treat her to a relaxing, low-laser therapy Stress Treatment from Imagine Laserworks or a one-hour nutritional consultation ($25 off for the month of May) from HealthEnut Café & Juice Bar. HealthEnut specializes in raw and organic food free of gluten, processed sugars, dairy and animal products.
Breakfast in Bed
Sometimes the smallest gestures mean the most. Surprise your Mom with a home-cooked breakfast made by you with l-o-v-e! Start with coffee or tea -- if Mom has a Tassimo™ or Keurig™, Coffee Craze offers the largest selection of K Cups, Tassimo T discs, Dolce Gusto, Brewers, Frothers and accessories in the area. Make your next stop The Bread House, a new bakery specializing in freshly-baked breads (gluten-free options available), including wood-fired bagels, artisan loaves, focaccia sandwiches, smoked meat sandwiches and gourmet pastries. Let Mom sit back, relax and enjoy the service with a smile!
Brunch, Lunch or Dinner & a Movie
Downtown Milton has no shortage of exquisite restaurants. Choose from a diverse selection of Thai, Italian, Bistro or Pub fare, Chinese or Japanese. Moms eat for free at Ivy Arms on May 12th or stop in Troy’s Diner for their famous all-day breakfast. If Mom fancies Italian, visit Casa Americo`s website for featured Mother’s Day lunch and dinner menus. After lunch, whisk her off to movie for a blockbuster day. P.S…If you haven’t already heard, the Great Gatsby is opening just in time for Mother’s Day!
All the above ideas are just that -- ideas! You know your Mom the best and there’s no limit to your creativity. Whether your gift is simple or elaborate, the words “I Love You” on Mother’s Day are really the best gift of all.
