Mother’s Day Gift Guide
If I am completely honest the best gift would be to sleep uninterrupted for as long as I wanted. Ideally I’d book a night at a hotel but with our current situation that’s not really possible. So I thought I would put together a local Mother’s Day Gift Guide – Shop Local YXH including a list of some of my favourite local shops. There is no time like the present to shop local.
I love supporting local businesses when I can, it makes me so happy. That’s probably because my parents have owned and operated their own business in Medicine Hat for the last 30 years. Small shops and businesses have a large place in my heart.
So many businesses are struggling right now and if it’s in your budget to give a gift to a wonderful lady in your life, I thought I would share my favourite in this Local Mother’s Day Gift Guide.
I have tried to break the gift guide down into categories to hopefully make this easier for you. A lot of these places also offer gift cards which also a great gift option.
Dawn & Clay Co. – These handmade clay earrings are so precious and would be a great addition to any jewelry collection.
Roset by Reid – This breath taking jewelry store is a perfect place to find the perfect gift for any special occasion. Currently we can’t visit their welcoming atmosphere but they did just launch their online store. Make sure to check it out as they have jewelry for any budget and Chelsea is there to help.
DeeZ Bows – This matching mommy and me set is so cute and perfect for all the girl moms out there. You can also purchase the earrings just for mom as well. All of DeAndra’s items are handmade, custom orders are also welcome.
The Little Moonstone – Seriously, I am obsessed with all the macrame. Not only does Kayla have gorgeous earrings but she has wonderful home decor too. Macrame wall hangings and plant hangers, oh my!
Botanicals – There is nothing more satisfying than adding more plants to your collection. The arrangements and little pots that Karri puts together is the perfect addition to any home.
Tilted Tulip – Okay – can we just talk about how talented Nicole is. Her bouquets are absolutely stunning! The colors, texture and the combinations are breathtaking.
Wild Clover – I absolutely love the casual vibe of this store. Ashley has curated a great collection of clothing that ranges for all sizes. I really enjoy her Try-On Thursdays on instagram.
Yoke X Hem – First off what a creative name. Katie has such a sophisticated and tailored style, perfect for all those mom bosses out there.
Kitchen Kaboodle – Hillary is the newest owner of Kitchen Kaboodle and she has already added such great pieces to her inventory. This is the perfect place to pick up something for the mama who loves to cook and bake, Hillary is bound to have the perfect gift.
Elliot – The pieces that Erica has sourced for her store are so unique, you can tell there is a lot of thought put into it. I don’t think you could go wrong buying anything from this store. I know I want it all!
Boylan Imaging – Any mother can attest to the fact the we love photos and custom gifts. Boylan Imaging can do both. Being my go to place for anything photo related Boylan’s offers so much more than just printing.
Sewline Upholstery – I am speaking from personal experience – because this is my families business – there is a lot of sentiment in furniture. Whether it was your grandma’s wingback chair or may be the kitchen chairs are worn out from years of feeding the family. Recovering a meaningful piece will last a life time.
Station Coffee Co. – Whether you grab a gift certificate or surprise the lady of the house with an afternoon coffee. You can’t go wrong with Station Coffee and treat – it would be a bonus if she could have 15 mins alone to enjoy it without sharing.
Madhatter Roastery – Motherhood is fuelled by coffee. Bring the coffeehouse to her buy picking up some locally roasted coffee beans, to brew in the comfort of your own home.
Redcliff Bakery – Who doesn’t enjoy a sweet treat. Mother’s Day is the best day to add a special dessert to the day. I know I’d be pretty happy with a custom cake but I would settle for a donut!
The Hat’s Olive Tap – I can not say enough good things about the oils and vinegars available at The Hat’s Olive Tap. This is a great gift for the ladies that love to be creative in the kitchen or like trying new things.
Grit City Distillery – Motherhood is hard and sometimes coffee isn’t enough. Grit City Distillery has some unique flavors to amp up your martini/quarentini game. OR may be you order their popular pickle pizza and offer to do the dishes.
Pink Paper Boutique – Personally I love recieving cards, I love when someone takes the times to write me a message or when my kiddos draw a picture in it. Cards are like a time stamp and Rena puts so much attention to detail in her gorgeous cards.
Brittany Ross Photography – Recently Brittany started offering these beautiful line drawings. When a lot of ladies would have signed up for Mother’s Day photo shoots this is a beautiful way to preserve a favourite photo. ( These line drawings are only available for a limited time, they will be available to order May 1st)
The YXH Box – This is the box we’ve all been waiting for. A box for every budget showcasing a lot of the local talent listed here. Great way to get a little bit of everything. I ordered mine yesterday so stay tuned for my review!!!
Organic Tan – Don’t be thrown off by the name, Ashley & Joelle offer so much more than just glowy skin. They have adorable jewelery, candles, apparel and they are even offering custom Mother’s Day boxes.
If you are looking for an amazing resource to find more local shops in Medicine Hat head over to SHOP YXH on Instagram or Facebook and give them a follow to stay up to date on all your local businesses.
While there is many local businesses I love, there is equally as many businesses in the surrounding area that are fabulous too. There is so many to share but I picked a few of my favourites!
The Home Quarter – YYN
Kelsey’s sense of style is on point. Her perfectly curated collection of homewares is bar none. There is so much detail put into the wares, I literly want everything.
Mocha Local – YQL
Give the gift an easy night of cooking and trying something new. This meal kit delivery system just started delivering the Medicine Hat. I recently wrote a review on their service – check it out here.
Blonde Ambition – Longview
There is something about having a perfect T or sweatshirt and having one with a cute phase is essential to any wardrobe.
Plant Love – YQL
You can never have too many plants and Plant Love offers free pick up in Medicine Hat.
I hope you enjoyed this Mother’s Day Gift Guide. Please remember to honour ladies in your life that might not be mothers or they are mothers to angels.
