Moms do so much for us and are always there when we need them. They comfort and guide us through all stages of our lives, even long after we’ve left the nest. Mother’s Day is a great opportunity to recognize and thank mom for her selfless dedication to those she loves. This year, Mother’s Day shopping is a bit more challenging, but we have some great ideas to find a unique gift to show her your appreciation. Here are some places to find that perfect something for mom, while supporting your favourite local businesses!
Spring is the best time to give mom a fragrant, fresh-from-the-farm bouquet of flowers. Swing by one of our local flower stands and choose from a gorgeous variety of blooms. Have cash handy for these serve-yourself locations.
