Moms are always taking care everyone else and Christmas time is no exception. We’re so busy worrying about gifts and dinners and parties and concerts that we often forget to take the time to sit down and think about what we’d like to get from Santa. Here are some great local suggestions for your Christmas Wish List, guaranteed to make you smile on Christmas morning:
- Pyrrha– https://pyrrha.com/
Pyrrha has a selection of gorgeous handmade jewellery and pendants representing family and moms specifically. My favourite is Maternal Devotion : the pelican on the talisman pendant is depicted feeding her young, a symbol of maternal devotion. (They even have a Game of Thrones line!)
- Vancouver Candle Co.– http://www.vancouvercandleco.com
Every mom loves an amazing smelling candle. Vancouver Candle Co.’s Neighbourhood Collection is a great way to make the gift a little more personal. Each scent in the Neighbourhood Collection celebrates the richness and diversity of local neighbourhoods.
Make life a little easier by putting this on your Christmas list! You’ll get healthy, delicious, locally sourced meals delivered right to your door or gym. You can choose from one to five dairy and gluten free meals a day, depending on which plan works best for you. Try the New Year Reset (aka the Holiday Hangover Cure) or the 10 Days of Vital plan to start 2017 off on the right foot.
- Allison Wonderland https://allisonwonderland.ca/
Every mom needs a great cardigan she can wear to brunch or at the playground or even to cozy up in at home. Allison’s Tumble Cardi from her Pillar label fits that profile perfectly. Locally designed and made using eco-friendly fabrics, it’s perfect for a Vancouver mom.
- Absolute Spa http://www.absolutespa.com
No mom can resist a day of being pampered and spoiled (as you deserve to be!). The Absolute Spa offers everything from facials and massages to body wraps and pedicures. They also have spa packages if you want to make a day of it and every service is followed up with a lovely spa lunch.
