Mother’s Day at Home in #BurlON 2020
This year Mother’s Day won’t involve dining out at a restaurant or browsing through shops so Mom can pick out what she wants. We are still in #StayHome mode so we can #FlattentheCurve. But Mom CAN and SHOULD still be celebrated and we’ve got a great selection of ideas of how you can do just that from home. Many businesses are offering delivery or curbside pick up so you can still make Mom feel special on May 10.
What Mom doesn’t like treats? Burlington has lots of great ‘treat spots’ that Mom can enjoy. Christy’s Gourmet Gifts is offering free delivery in Oakville, Burlington and Waterdown with a minimum $50 purchase. How adorable are these mini succulent chocolate cups made with Belgian chocolate? Each box is $15 and comes with a variety of succulents.
Other great local treat spots are: Walkers Chocolates who are offering $5 shipping on orders over $50 in Mississauga, Oakville, Burlington and Hamilton; La Creme de la Creme Creamery is offering Strawberries dipped in the finest European dark or milk chocolate, 12 for $24.99 which can be ordered online for curbside pick-up. Or how about a special gift basket made for Mom? Give our friends at Mrs. B’s a call and they will do a custom basket and make sure you request their artisan biscotti in the basket – it’s delicious! Curbside pick-up and delivery available.
Mom may not be able to visit the spa right now, but trust us when we say, she will look forward to a visit in the future when it is safe to do so. Spa in the Village located in Village Square in Downtown Burlington is offering a variety of spa packages that Mom is sure to enjoy. Purchase a gift card online and Mom will also receive a vintage tea cup which is a Mother’s Day tradition with the spa.
Our friends at Harmony Fine Jewellers have put together a special Mother’s Day gift package for a unique and safe gift for Mom. Included in the package is an “orchid serenity” planter, $75 gift card for family photo session and a $75 Harmony Fine Jewellers gift card; all for only $140 and complimentary safe local delivery (retail value of $230).
No Mother’s Day is complete without a good meal in honour of Mom! She shouldn’t have to cook on Mother’s Day (that’s the rule in my house!) and the many restaurants and food places in Burlington are able to help you out with that. Let Mom start her day off right with Brunch and Mimosas. The two go hand in hand! There are a couple options so you can order a nice brunch for your celebration. Spencer’s at the Waterfront is offering a Mother’s Day Brunch Box. Orders can be placed until May 5 and then picked up curbside Saturday May 9 from 2-5 pm or Sunday May 10 from 9 am-12 pm (contactless pick up, remain in your vehicle the entire time). You can also add on a Mimosa Kit. Loondocks Restaurant is also offering a Take-out Mother’s Day Brunch Package that includes a Mimosa kit, homemade scones with preserves, fruit and cheese. Available for pick-up, or delivery ($9 delivery charge). You can also add on flowers. Call (905)633-8337 or email email@example.com to place your order.
