This Mother’s day, think outside the (chocolate) box!
Our mothers deserve something beautiful, unique and handmade … well maybe not by us. For the less crafty amongst us, whose latest creations wind up resembling the Pinterest Epic Fail list rather than our well-intentioned rainbow cake, we’ve got the answer for you!
Xoxolat has combined every woman’s two favorite things: chocolate and shoes. The result is beyond stunning! Every shoe is made out of premium dark, white or milk chocolate, and decorated by talented in-house artists. Price range from $35-$55, you can even get one custom made! Maybe her favorite Louboutin?
This year, why not let the professionals do the crafts? We can keep exploring our creative side… outside the kitchen.
We’ve all seen ‘The toughest job on earth’ (if you haven’t, stop reading this and watch it here right now!). This Sunday, let her take a day off from being mom. Pick up a copy of her favorite book and let her unwind with some tea while you take care of the chores.
For this special day, we can’t have just ANY tea! Step up the game with this Organic Earl Gray from Granville Island Tea Company. Sweeten with some local honey from the famed Honeyview farms. Pair it with rose petal scones and champagne jelly and cream. All this decadence wrapped up in a basket from Edible Canada for only $55.
Here’s a universal truth all children can agree on: Mothers are not picky eaters. From cold pasta to the crust that must be cut off our PB+Js, moms have had enough remains from our plate that we’d have never known her foodie side.
Now it’s time to make up for years of leftovers! Inspired by the 100-mile diet, Saul Good’s gift baskets showcase some of BC’s best-loved artisan products. A best seller ever since its creation, Local Gourmand features a variety of gourmet items guaranteed to satisfy the finest palates. Damsom Plum Jam, Fig & Walnut Wine Preserve, Vanilla Salt Caramels, and Sun-Dried Okanagan Cherries, just to name a few. Cost: $108
