Natural Mother’s Day Ideas
May 10, 2017
Mothers Day is this weekend. Are you ready? Sometimes it’s hard to think of ways to celebrate Mom. After all, she gave birth to you, raised you, loved you, and more. How do you show the right amount of appreciation for someone who spent so many years driving you around, nurturing you, giving advice, and generally sacrificing things for themselves so you can have everything you need?
This year, show Mom you care with some natural ideas that she will love. Here are a few of our top choices:
Make Time Together by Trying a New Recipe
If your mom loves to cook, skip the fancy brunch or dinner and opt for an afternoon or evening together in the kitchen. Try a new recipe together. Whether it’s a savoury dish or delicious baked good, your mom will appreciate the time you spend together. Check out the Rainbow Foods Facebook page for some amazing organic and gluten-free recipes to try.
Create a Self-Care Basket
Moms are notorious for putting everyone before herself. Sometimes they can forget to treat themselves every now and then. Rainbow Foods has a ton of natural and organic beauty and skincare products that will leave your mom’s skin glowing. Make a care package for her so she can finally enjoy some at-home pampering. Our knowledgeable team can recommend the best products for your Mom. Ask in-store today!
Invest in a Spa Experience
If you really want to go all-out for Mom, get her a treatment from a local spa. It may sound cliché, but Ottawa is home to some amazing organic spas that use only natural ingredients. One of our favourites is the Signature Facial from locally owned organic spa, Oresta. They combine facemasks, lymphatic draining, and massage into one amazing experience that is sure to impress Mom.
Go with a Theme
May is also Fair Trade Month. Combine the two and give your Mom a fair trade themed gift. From coffee and chocolate to tea and other sweet treats, Rainbow Foods has a plethora of Fair Trade products that would make great gifts.
Whether you’re spending the day with Mom or simply treating her to something special, there are so many ways you can show your love and appreciation for her this weekend. What are your favourite ways to spend Mother’s Day?
