Mark your calendars… Mother’s Day takes place May 13! Celebrate your mom, sister, wife, daughter, or other special woman in your life on this special day. Give her a gift or service that that suits her lifestyle and interests – such as cooking, the outdoors, or health and wellness. Here are some ideas from the shops and services at Central City!
Does the woman in your life love cooking? Give her a time-saving, smart-feature KitchenAid counter-top stand mixer or juicer in a fun colour like pink, yellow, or green to brighten up her kitchen. A state-of-the-art De’Longhi or Nespresso Cappuccino maker or coffee machine would also be appreciated; the brands are renowned worldwide for timeless style and quality workmanship. All these items are available at Bed Bath & Beyond at Central City.
Does mom love to dress up her home? Give her a fashion-forward soft faux-fur throw and set of matching decorative pillows from Winners or Bed Bath & Beyond. Or consider a stylish gift of a brushed metal frame from Things Engraved; make it an extra special gift by personalizing it with an engraved message.
Give mom organic skincare products like Clarin’s renowned line of luxury line of skin care, face creams, body lotions, and sun protection products. She’d also love the Quo line of foundations, lipsticks, mascaras, makeup brushses, and nail colours. The brand’s new spring Metal Morphosis line is especially popular and features complimentary colour combos for lips, eyes, and cheeks. Find both lines at Shoppers Drug Mart at the centre.
If your mom has a green thumb, she’d appreciate gifts that encourage her to get outside and gardening… Dollarama at the centre has a great selection of inexpensive gardening tools, gloves, pails, watering cans, and planters in bright spring colours. Add potted miniature rose, spring tulips, or Gerber daisies from Continental Flowers and you have a gift package that mom will love!
Is mom a wine connoisseur? Get her a bottle of local BC wine from Central City Liquor Store – the store carries a wide selection of popular and award-winning varieties like Giant Head Estate Winery Rosé or Mission Hill Five Vineyards Lyric Aromatic White. We’re sure she would also appreciate a set of stunning, quality-made Riedel wine glasses or stemware from Bed Bath & Beyond.
Visit Walmart or T&T Supermarket and pick up a variety of special delicacies like cookies, crackers, nuts, and other yummy snacks. Add gourmet packaged whole bean or ground coffee from Starbucks and Tim Hortons. Package up all the goodies in a wood crate or woven basket from Winners for a thoughtful and delicious present that mom can share with the whole family!
Give mom the give of health with a membership to Club 16 Trevor Linden Fitness/She’s Fit! at Central City. With state-of-the-art cardio and strength training equipment, unlimited Group Fitness classes, and a ladies only area, it is a membership she will truly appreciate. Another idea is to give mom a fully-loaded gym bag filled with gear like a Yoga mat from Madhatters, sports bottle and towels from Walmart, protein powder from GNC, and smart fitness watch like the popular and stylish Fitbit Blaze from Best Buy that features PurePulse heart rate monitoring, the FitStar app with guided workouts, and connected GPS
Does mom love to travel? Get her a set of luggage from Bentley. The Samsonite Azure hardcase line features gorgeous shiny exterior in a variety of trend-setting colours, multi-directional spinner wheels for easy mobility, and push button locking handle. Feeling extra generous? Give mom a trip to a sunny destination like Mexico, Cuba, or the Dominican Republic from Maritime Travel or Flight Centre.
Find a wide selection of paper, stamps, stickers, borders, stencils, and other supplies for the scrapbooker in your life at A Buck or Two or Dollarama at the centre. The stores also have a wide variety of blank cards that you can personalize with art supplies to make a special card that will touch mom’s heart.
