Out of the Box - OEV Mother's Day Gift Ideas
You can find great local and unique gifts for mom all over London, but of course, we’re here to tell you all about the many options to be found right here in Old East Village. From sweet treats to floral arrangements, from experiences to craft drinks, no matter what you’re on the hunt for, you’ll find everything mom needs in OEV!
Flower, flowers, flowers!
On Mother’s Day, we’ve got to start with flowers. Whether it’s plants, a bouquet, or gifts from Grow & Bloom Co., an arrangement and chocolates from Regency Florists, or one of the many lovely options at The Market, you can be certain that mom will be very, very happy!
It doesn’t get much better than handmade right here in London. So why not check out the London Clay Art Centre Store featuring wares of all kinds, created in their 664 Dundas location? On top of this, the LCAC is holding their Spring Potters Market this weekend from May 6-8. Head down to Somerville 630 to see all the wonderful things created by local artisans!
Getting crafty, one drink at a time.
Give Mom the gift of craft this year! Be sure to check out the cocktail kits expertly arranged by Union Ten or perhaps some beautiful glassware from Paradigm Spirits (sale on now!)? To satisfy the morning people out there, explore the many coffee options roasted on site from Fire Roasted or Asmara Coffee House. Or why not both? Mom will be happy from day to night!
Impeccable tastes, for pickup and delivery.
Browse the tasty Mother’s Day special options from 10Eighteen Cafe. With satiating savouries or sweets, mom will be in heaven! Order online and pickup on site at 1018 Dundas.
What about a prepared meal kit or charcuterie board from On The Move Organics? Choose what she’d like and have it delivered to her door!
As well, take a look at London’s prettiest mini grocery store, Ugly Local Grocery Bodega. Decide on a one-time delivery (or pick up at 630 Dundas) or the gift that keeps on giving, fresh fruits and veggies every week! Check them out online or in person to determine just what it is mom needs.
It’s all about the experience!
Get out and about to experience so much that London has to offer! There’s no better way to do so than through the Only In OEV self-guided tours. Provide mom with the finest in international dumplings on the Dumpling Trail, or a thirst quenching traipes through the Libation District, or what about a mind enriching afternoon doing the Culture Cruise? Do one, do two, do all three! No matter what you choose, any experience with mom will be time well spent.
No matter what mom needs (/wants), as we said, OEV has you covered! Choose amongst the above list or if you’re in need of something different, we’ve got that too. Musical therapy - Strings. A forever learner - Mystic Bookshop. The thrill of vintage finds - Back to the Fuchsia, and so, so, so much more! No matter what is needed, you can find it, right here in OEV. Happy Mother’s Day!
