Shopping for Mother’s Day Gifts? How to Keep It Super Simple
Don’t you miss the days when finding the perfect Mother’s Day gift was as simple as writing out a “free hug” coupon or rehearsing the number for your in-home concert? Not to suggest that Mom doesn’t love our hugs and (sometimes not so) melodious singing voice anymore – she still does – but now that we’re all grown up we aim to raise that gift-giving bar.
But when Mom is modest about her sharing her gift wishes, it’s easy to get stumped isn’t it? Shoppers Drug Mart brings back their popular gift guide tool right in the nick of time, stocked with a huge range of suggestions sure to please even the woman who already has everything. Even better, Mom can use the tool to create a personalized wishlist, then email or Facebook it to her hubby and kids desperate for a hot clue of what’s really on her radar this Mother’s Day.
And as we all know, Shoppers knows a thing or two about what women love (the VISA bill proves that, doesn’t it?). From fragrances to makeup, foot spas and retail gift cards, you’re bound to find something that’ll make Mom squeal with delight.
Here are a few picks from our list for Mom to clinch the “favourite child” top spot (of the day, anyway):
(1) HomeMedics Jet Action Footbath $49.99
(2) Bloom Gift Set (scented bath salts and scented candle) $16.99
(3) Air Plus Aloe Infused Socks, 2 for $10 or $7.99 each
(4) Chloé Rose Edition Eau de Parfum Spray $90
(5) Ghirardelli Chocolate Squares $11.99
(6) Lancôme L’Absolue Lipstick $35
And because we love any chance to learn more beauty tips, you should know that on Saturday May 7th, Shoppers Drug Mart locations nationwide are hosting 5-minute makeover demonstrations. Held at the top of every hour, bring your mother, daughter, or both to learn makeup application tips that’ll enhance natural beauty at any age.
Now stop procrastinating and check out Shoppers Drug Mart’s Mother’s Day Gift Guide!

Haha! Cathy I like your style. The gift that seems like it is for someone else but is really for you. Always an excellent strategy ;)
Would it be terrible of me to get my mother the Chloe Rose Edition perfume for Mother's Day and then maybe "borrow" it on occasion?
Agree on the socks - my favourite choice too! Sometimes it's the little things that make me the most happy :)
Siofan: I'll be your second order for the full body sock! I really dislike putting on lotion as well - it just takes so long!
@Siofan - if you invent it, I would buy the giant sock for the whole body.
@meredithk115 As the laziest person when it comes to putting on lotion, I think those socks are a great idea. I hope someone comes up with moisturizing sheets one day, or maybe just a giant sock for my whole body?
d*mn it jenn and Siofan-now I am going to have to go out (in the rain) and smell the Chloe...you all know how much I hate rain, don't you?
I AM DYING to get the Chloe Rose Edition! It just smells so amazing. I wish they made a bigger bottle though!
Love that Chloé Rose Edition. Rose scents always remind me of my grandmother, so timeless.
