Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and after a very long year, what better way to show the moms in your life that you care than with a thoughtful, hand-picked gift! Whether you’re shopping for your own mom, mother-in-law, or mom-to-be, everyone deserves to feel special this Mother’s Day.
Mother’s Day is the perfect opportunity to support small businesses, so we wanted to create a gift guide that features some of our favourite small businesses as well as a few of our favourite Golden August products that make the perfect gifts.
For the Moms Who Love to Lounge:
Golden August The Label has brand new summer-inspired linen sets that are the perfect gift for the moms in your life who love to feel cozy and comfortable while they lounge. These lounge sets are made of 100% stonewashed linens and come in three colors: Sand, Salt, and Terra Cotta and a variety of sizes to suit any body type. Our linen sets are also pregnancy and breastfeeding friendly for all the new moms and moms-to be.
Golden August The Label is a slow fashion, sustainable clothing line, and our summer linen sets are available for pre-order now. After the pre-order each linen set will be handmade by a local seamstress in Vancouver and sent to you within 8 weeks just in time for the warm, sunny weather.
For the Moms Who Love Florals:
You can’t go wrong with a bouquet of flowers for Mother’s Day, but sometimes you just want to shake things up and surprise the mom in your life with something special. Dried florals are the perfect Mother’s Day gift because, unlike fresh flowers, dried florals can last for years. Whether its pampas grass, dried palms, or an adorable bunch of bunny tails, dried florals make the perfect gift for every nom.
If you’re not sure what to get, we only hear good things about our bestselling Arizona Pampas Grass or there’s always the Paloma Palm for the moms who want to make their home feel like a warm island getaway. But, if you’re still stuck, we also offer gift cards starting from $10.
For the Moms Who Love to Redecorate:
Everyone deserves something beautiful to refresh their space once in a while, and moms are no different. There’s no better way to liven up a dull space than with unique ceramics that can turn a boring bookshelf into something out of a magazine, and these ceramics make the perfect Mother’s Day gift for the moms who love interior design or the moms who have been dying to redecorate.
Some of our favourite ceramics are from SIN, a small business that specializes in unique ceramic pieces that will liven up any space, and Lisa Warren Ceramics, a Vancouver-based artist who makes gorgeous handmade vases that look amazing with our pampas grass and pretty things.
For the Moms Who Love to Accessorize:
Jewelry is a great way to make any mother feel appreciated, and we have been loving Gems and Juniper for beautiful hypoallergenic and tarnish resistant jewelry. Whether it’s a simple set of gold hoops, or a custom charm bracelet, Gems and Juniper has the perfect gift for this Mother’s Day.
For the moms who love an easy, stylish updo, Dew Edit has everything you need to make a perfect gift. From scrunchies, to headbands, to clips, a gift from Dew Edit can let that special mom know you’re thinking about them while also giving them the cutest way to rock a ponytail this summer.

For the Moms Who Love a Glass of Wine:
We all need a glass of wine sometimes, so what better gift this Mother’s Day than a bottle of wine from Spade & Sparrows that she’s certain to love. Spade & Sparrow wines are perfect for any wine lover and come in a variety of different options all the way from pinot grigios to cabernet sauvignon.
Happy Mother’s Day from the Golden August team!
