5 Locally Made Gifts For Mother’s Day

From pressed flower prints to beautiful bonbons, these locally made gifts will show your mom how much you care on May 8th.


We love our moms year round, but Mother’s Day is the time to really show it by spending some time together, going out for a meal or gifting a thoughtful present. This Mother’s Day, show a little love to both your mom and local makers with a locally made gift.


Alberta embroidery hoops

Maria Arseniuk of Femmebroidery creates colourful, hand-stitched art on embroidery hoops. Her designs feature everything from the topic of feminism to stenciled animals framed with stitched flowers. These Alberta embroidery hoops are especially perfect for Mother’s Day, with beautiful flowers adorning the shape of Alberta.

Box of chocolate bonbons

The Chocolate Lab recently opened in Chinatown and is creating chocolate bonbons and truffles that are almost too pretty to eat. Almost. Each one of these chocolate bonbons is a work of art, and they come in flavours ranging from Scotch on the Rocks (with 12-year-old scotch, dark chocolate and pop rocks) to the Caramellow (with caramel and milk chocolate). Choose from three different box sizes that hold approximately six ($15), 12 ($28) or 24 ($54) individual chocolates. Pick up an assorted, pre-assembled medium-sized box or pick and choose your own in-store.

Pressed flower print

Locally made art always makes for a great one-of-a-kind gift, and these beautiful hand-pressed flower prints from Gypsy Skulls are no exception.

The prints come in 8×10″ ($30 and 11×14″ ($35).
