Make Mom Melt This Mother’s Day
Mother’s Day is on Sunday, May 12. We try to show our love and care for our moms as often as we can, but this special day of the year is a great opportunity to show our extra appreciation. Keep reading to see special ideas that will make your mom melt this Mother’s Day.
Find Her Solemate
Moms are often on the move and on their feet for most of the day (bless them) so it is important they are wearing comfortable shoes while still maintaining good posture for their own well-being. Find a wide range of quality shoes for your mom at Shoe Warehouse like stylish sandals, flats, heels, boots, loafers, runners, and more. Alternatively, you can find styles that are more athletic at Foot Locker.
A Much-Needed Pamper Session
Because many of us are so busy in our day-to-day lives, we could likely use more self-care. Consider taking your mom out for a special pampering service at ProfessioNail, where the both of you can enjoy mother-daughter bonding time, get your nails done, and relax. Alternatively, consider organizing a little DIY session in the comfort of your own home instead. Grab the latest nail polish shades from popular brands like OPI, Essie, Sally Hansen, L’Oreal, and more from Shoppers Drug Mart, Walmart, or Winners. You can also find manicure and pedicure tools and kits, as well as other spa items like bath bombs, facemasks, and body exfoliators at these stores.
Food Time Could Be a Good Time
Good food plus good company equals a good time. Bring your mom to Central City and explore our selection of cuisines and dining options for brunch, lunch, and dinner. Opt for a delicious gourmet burger, pasta, and pizza at Boston Pizza. Visit Ricky’s and explore the restaurant’s delicious brunch options like their Traditional Benny, or legacy classics during dinner time like the Veal Campignon, Grilled Beef Liver and Onions, and the Homestyle Slow Roasted Turkey dish. Or, visit Neptune Seafood Restaurant for a Dim Sum Lunch, or try the restaurant’s fresh and exquisite seafood like king crab, lobster, geoduck, and fish, along with other specialty dishes for dinner.
If you’re planning to cook a meal for your mom instead (like bringing her breakfast in bed), you can find fresh produce from Farm Fresh, T&T Supermarket, and Walmart. Visit Black Bond Books for new and trending cookbooks, whether it’s for yourself or for your mom.
Speaking of cooking, sometimes there just really isn’t anything that tastes the same as mom’s cooking, but cooking is a lot of work! Make dinner preparations, cooking, and cleaning easier and more enjoyable for your mom as a way of thanking her for all her hard work. Find a collection of colourful and quality cookware, kitchenware, and dishware at Bed Bath & Beyond and Winners.
All About The Trends
If your mom is all about the latest everything – such as trending fashion styles, books, and tech gear, you’ll find all that you need at Central City. Visit Best Buy or Walmart to find all kinds of popular tech gear like cameras, smartphones, smartwatches, earbuds, computers, and TVs. Explore a variety of stylish finds like clothing, accessories, and handbags at our fashion retailers including Winners, Le Château, Alia n Tanjay, Fairweather, and more.
Make your gift extra special by getting it personalized with a special message at Things Engraved, such as your initials, symbol, or quote. Another great personalized gift option would be to get a beautiful photo of the whole family custom framed at SmArt Frames & Accents. For more photo frame options, visit Bed Bath and Beyond and Winners.
A Simple Appreciated Gift
The classic duo of a card and bouquet of flowers would make a wonderful gift. Brighten your mom’s day by sharing your favourite memory of the two of you or words of appreciation in a Mother’s Day card, which you can find at Carlton Cards, Dollarama, or Shoppers Drug Mart. Pick out your mom’s favourite kinds of fresh cut flowers or potted plant from Continental Flowers, T&T Supermarket, and Walmart.
If you’re not sure about the any of the options above, then simply spoil your mom with a Central City Gift Card. Moms can be picky after all (shhh), so this could be the perfect gift! Central City Gift Cards are redeemable at most of the centre’s 140 stores, restaurants, and services, and are available in denominations from $5 to $500. Visit Guest Services (located across from Best Buy) for more details.
