Great Local Gifts for Mom


Mom is going to love you no matter what. But, don’t just phone in your gift-giving effort. These thoughtful and unique local gifts from the 2017 Local Wishlist will show how much you really care.


1) Seaglass Silver Necklace

From Nova Scotia designer Bridget Turner, this one is a real head turner with its beautiful mint green glass centre. Mom will love it. And every time she wears it, she’ll think of you.


2) Relaxation Time

Pamper Mom with this herbal bath tea collection from Humble Burdock Farms. A warm bath and one of these combinations of flowers, herbs, Epsom and sea salts is all she needs to soak any stress away.


3) Mom wants a wine tour

Give her a Wine Tour from Grape Escapes Tours. You can buy a gift card in any denomination and all the recipient has to do is call to book the tour and date they prefer.


4) Warm her up with a scarf

We couldn’t pick just one. So, we’ll recommend two. The Woven Infinity Scarf from Craftisan Weave Co. is hand crafted and traditionally loom woven in Nova Scotia. The True North Scarf is another beautiful option, hand-knit by the folks at Lily Lake Knits in Cape Breton.


5) Give Mom a journal for her thoughts

This hand-stitched leather journal/guestbook from La Paperie and Cozy Handmade Journals, featuring 160 pages of white, archival paper pages sounds like the perfect place for Mom to write her thoughts or to-do lists or whatever her heart desires.
