As recommended by DIY expert Alexandra Gater, Queen West’s Euclid Farms is a top destination in the city when it comes to sourcing beautiful and high-quality floral arrangements. While you can never go wrong with a fresh bouquet, the gift is short-lived and creates waste. Luckily, this local shop has a longer-lasting and more sustainable solution. Dried flower arrangements are a customizable option with an end result that is just as stunning as fresh flowers – only this batch will last a lifetime. From $30, at Euclid Farms.
Mini Pearl Satellite Bracelet
It wouldn’t be a Mother’s Day gift guide without at least one piece of jewellery. Complement your mom’s elegant style with Mejuri’s timeless Mini Pearl Satellite bracelet. Made from a delicate gold vermeil chain adorned with freshwater pearls, this contemporary twist on a classic style embodies beauty and grace. $128, from Mejuri.

Apprenti Or’ganik Body Oil
The mom-to-be has probably received enough onesies and teething toys to last a lifetime. For her first Mother’s Day, gift her something that she can use throughout and after her pregnancy. Made from a fast-acting combination of Beta Carotene and Vitamin C, Apprenti Or’ganik body oil nourishes dry skin and soothes stretch marks. $65, at The Apothecary Inc.

The Airflo Brim Hat
Ossington’s Tilley shop boasts quite a collection of activewear and outerwear.
