    The Best Mother's Day Gifts You Can Get In Canada In 2021

    Because mom deserves something nice this year.

    by , , , , ,

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A Roomba i7+ robot vacuum that'll take care of an annoying chore for them, so they can spend more time doing things they actually enjoy. It comes with a charging and dirt disposal base, so once they set it up they can forget it about it for months at a time.

    May Ning/BuzzFeed

    The Roomba i7+ comes with a dust brush that sweeps up every last speck of debris (even from corners and walls). It also has two rubber brushes that loosen and lift dirt that's more caked onto their floors or carpets. It fits under couches and beds and can even climb from surface to surface (but won't fall down the stairs).

    After a few runs (or a dedicated mapping run), the Roomba i7+ will generate a floor plan of your mom's home. From there, they can map out rooms, keep-out zones, and specified cleaning areas. It can map up to ten different floor plans!

    Check out my full review of the Roomba i7+ for more deats.

    Get it from iRobot for $799.99.

    2. A cross-stitching kit that's great for beginners, but will still create a beautiful piece of artwork — and all made by their own two hands.

    The kit laid out
    Indigo / Via chapters.indigo.ca

    It comes with a hoop, fabric, thread, needles, and instructions (so they won't need to purchase any extras).

    Get it from Indigo for $49.95. Available in three styles.

    3. A pair of Sheertex tights that'll stay intact, no matter what tumbles or scrapes they get themselves into. Bye bye, hosiery runs!

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    "I've said it before and I'll say it again: I am clumsy. That means regular tights just ain't it for me, because I always tear them. These ones can't be broken or busted through, so they're right up my alley. Even scissors can't puncture these glorious fibres (I've tried), so you can go out and live your life without worrying about getting a run in your pantyhose." —Alice Prendergast

    Get them from Sheertex for $101 CAD. Get 10% off when you use the promo code MOM10.

    4. A flower collage kit that'll give them some new artwork to show off in their home. This little display is super easy to assemble and is a crafty solution for their lack of a green thumb.

    It comes with everything they'll need to complete their masterpiece, including pre-cut flower pictures and a frame.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $31.07. Available in three styles.

    5. A set of cat-shaped self-watering globes that'll keep their plant friends happy and healthy. They'll slowly seep water into soil over three weeks, so they won't need to stress if they forget to give them their daily dose of H2O.

    Get a pack of three on Amazon Canada for $29.99.

    6. A Jason Momoa-themed colouring book, if they're obsessed with Khal Drogo and would probably give away their first-born child (you) to spend a day with Aquaman (sorry, dad).

    Don't forget to throw in some pencil crayons, too.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $429.99. Available in 19 colours.

    8. A sunrise alarm clock that'll gently wake them up by tricking their senses into thinking it’s light out, even if it isn’t. The crescendo of nature sounds and gradual brightening will replace the jarring ringtone they're probably using now.

    Get them from Warby Parker for $275+.

    11. An armrest coaster that'll keep Mom's drinks and snacks within reach during their next movie marathon. Reviewers say it's remarkably stable and even fits on overstuffed armchairs, too.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $129.99. Available in four colours and four bundles.

    13. A heated deep tissue massager that'll knead their neck and shoulders in between RMT appointments. Reviewers say it can help to relieve migraines and that it soothes their ultra-tense traps like nothing else.

    May Ning / Via BuzzFeed

    "There are eight little nodes (four big and four small) that roll around and knead out all my knots and tense muscles. You can switch back and forth between rolling inwards or outwards. It also has three speed settings, and a button that turns on the heat. Don’t worry, it’s not HOT hot — it’ll add just a touch of warmth to your massage, which makes it that much more relaxing and soothing." —May Ning

    Check out May's full review of this heavenly massager here.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $58.99 (originally $78.99).

    14. A foldable foot basin that'll let them soak those barkin' dogs until their dead skin is soft enough to scrub off. It has built-in massage rollers that'll knead their achy arches, too.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    Pair it with an Epsom salt soak and let the home-spa vibes unfurl.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $45. Available in three colours.

    15. A silk pillowcase that won't soak up their expensive night cream (like cotton pillowcases tend to do). It'll keep their hair from breaking while they rest their sweet lil' head at night, too.

    Simons / Via simons-ca.c2ukkg.net, Brittany Barber/BuzzFeed

    K. I finally bought a silk pillowcase, and let me tell you: I wish I had done it sooner! I love how soft and cool it feels on my face, and the fact that it has literally transformed my day two curls. After sleeping on a regular cotton pillowcase, my curls would be a frizzy mess and I'd have to style 'em again (or just take a shower). Now? They're just as nice as they were before I hit the hay. And yes, this baby is 100% silk.

    Get it from Simons for $60. Also available in white.

    16. A pack of hummingbird leaf-shaped tea bags that'll give their steeped beverages an avian twist. They're made of organic cotton and are free of chemicals, so they're a little easier on the environment, too.

    Etsy / Via bit.ly

    Get a pack of five from TeaHeritage on Etsy for $12.28. Available in four flavours.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    Get a yellow and green pair on Amazon Canada for $48.20+. Also available in a pink and blue pair.

    18. A complete cocktail-making kit for muddled drinks that'll let Mom indulge in all their bar faves. Whether they're partial to a whiskey smash or just miss sipping on zesty mojitos, this kit will slake your mom's cravings.

    19. A portable wine bottle and set of tumblers, so they can still enjoy some wine when they're spending time outdoors. They're made of stainless steel, meaning they're practically unbreakable. Plus, they're insulated, so they'll keep your mom's vino cool as a cucumber.

    Get it from Simons for $89. Available in sizes XS—XL and in two prints.

    21. These Aveeno hand masks that'll help rebalance their skin's moisture levels in ten minutes. They're great for anyone who has very dry, but also very sensitive skin. The main ingredients are shea butter and oat, and it's unscented, so it won't irritate their skin.

    Kaysey Davis/BuzzFeed

    "My hands are pretty dry already and with increased hand washing, my skin is feeling extra parched. I normally bathe my hands in cream, but it's just not enough. Enter these ~handy~ hydrating masks. First, I love that they're gloves. I've tried other masks that have a mitten shape and it's hard to sit still for 15 minutes while they work their magic. With these gloves I still have a bit of dexterity, so I can work on my laptop, clean, or whatever I need to do in the meantime. And afterwards, my hands feel so soft and moisturized." —Kaysey Davis

    Get a pair from Amazon Canada for $4.99 (as an add-on item).

    22. This 2-in-1 hair dryer and volumizer that'll help them achieve that effortless, bouncy blowout that Cindy Crawford and Cher Horowitz perfected in the '90s. They can easily streamline their hairstyling process with this powerful, one-step hair tool.

    @revlonhairtoolsca / Via instagram.com, May Ning/BuzzFeed

    It has three heat and speed options, a ceramic coating, and tiny airflow vents to dry and style hair quickly without damaging or over-styling it. The oval shape of the brush and the nylon pin bristles detangle hair and let you get right down to the root to add extra lift.

    "If you're like me, you probably hate how long it takes to do your hair in the morning. Since buying the Revlon one-step hair dryer, I've cut my getting-ready time in half and said goodbye to my blowdryer and my straightener. If you hold it near your roots, you'll get more volume. If you pull it all the way through, you'll get a nice straightening effect. I personally like to roll it inwards for that tapered look." —May Ning

    Check out BuzzFeed's full review of the Revlon One-Step hair dryer.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $64.96+. Available in three colours.

    23. This electronic brush cleaner that'll do all the hard work, so your mom won't have to. The spinning wand will clean AND dry their tools, and it comes with eight attachments that'll fit a variety of different makeup brushes.

    Kat Angus/BuzzFeed

    They'll need four AAA batteries that you can get here.

    "I know I'm not alone in not washing my makeup brushes as often as I should. It takes forever, and even once I'm done cleaning them, I still have to let them dry overnight. But this spinning makeup brush cleaner has totally changed the game. I cleaned and dried all of my makeup brushes in under ten minutes. Now I'll actually clean them on the regular." ⁠—Kat Angus

    Check out BuzzFeed's full review of the Makeup Brush Cleaner (#1 on the list).

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $24.98.

    24. A portable beach tent that'll shield them from the sun when they're relaxing in the sand (or in the backyard). It folds into a portable pouch, making it easy to tote from place to place.

    Get it from Indigo for $59.50. Available in three patterns.

    25. These Fenty Beauty lip glosses that'll make a great addition to their collection of lippies. They can wear them alone or swipe them over their favourite lipsticks to create colourful and shiny lewks.

    Plus, they come with a case that has a keychain attached, so they'll never lose them.

    "This is absolutely my go-to lipgloss. Its formula doesn't feel heavy and gloopy like most high-shine glosses, and it doesn't leave my lips feeling tacky at all. I have the colour 'Diamond Milk' (which is described as a shimmering pearl) and wear it by itself for a more 'natural' look (by gloss standards)." —Rachel Dunkel

    Check out BuzzFeed's full review of the Fenty Beauty (#14 on the list).

    Get them from Sephora Canada for $32.

    26. A 500-piece puzzle that'll be a relaxing and screen-free activity they can do every night. It'll make them feel super accomplished once they finish, and it's such as pretty illustration they'll probably want to frame it.

    Get it from Indigo for $21.99. Available in four styles.

    27. A copy of The Home Edit Life that they'll probably love if they're really into organization. Instead of getting rid of their favourite things, this book will show them how to arrange everything in their home, so it'll look less chaotic and more curated.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $29.81. Also available for Kindle.

    28. These Rodial sheet masks made with bamboo charcoal that'll help remove dirt, excess oil, and dead skin cells from their dermis. It also has a blend of collagen, ceramide, and vitamins A and E to give their skin a little hydration boost, too.

    Kaysey Davis/BuzzFeed

    "These sheet masks are just plain fun. The foamy bubbles look hilarious and they feel so gentle against my skin (almost like they're tickling my face). I love using them after I wash my face, so I can treat my skin to a deep clean, without having to do a lot of work or risk irritating my skin. And because it's a sheet mask, I can pat the excess serum into my skin, so they're really a 2-in-1 product. They leave my skin feeling squeaky clean AND super hydrated." —Kaysey Davis

    Get a pack of eight for $64.35.

    29. A silicone cup that'll transform a bottle of wine or beer into a gigantic glass for them (and them alone) to enjoy. It's made with a flexible copolyester material that won't crack or break, and it has a silicone stem that'll fit into most bottles.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $25.07.

    30. A portable wine glass holder that'll stick right to the wall of their shower or bathtub, so your mom can enjoy a glass of vino while they exfoliate. It can suction onto almost any flat, shiny, dry surface, so they can probably find a few other creative places to use it in their home.

    Get it from Indigo for $19.50 or from Amazon Canada for $23.07+. Available in three styles.

    31. A dry facial brush by Province Apothecary that'll become part of their morning ritual. It'll feel like a mini massage on their face and help remove dead skin cells, encourage blood circulation, and reduce puffiness.

    Simons / Via simons-ca.c2ukkg.net

    Province Apothecary is a plant-based beauty company located in downtown Toronto.

    Get it for $52 from Amazon Canada or for $52 from Simons.

    32. A gardening journal that'll help them keep track of every seed and sprout they sow. It covers ten years, they can monitor how their crops grow over a longer stretch of time than a traditional journal.

    33. An extra-large floral tote bag that they can fill to the brim with essentials, so they can assume their true identity as a modern-day Mary Poppins. It secures with a tie fastener at the top, meaning they won't need to worry about stuff sneaking out.

    34. An Endy weighted blanket that'll help them sleep like a baby (and keep them warm, too). I have one of these and it's helped with my insomnia and anxiety, making it totally worth the investment.

    36. This Aquis microfibre towel that'll absorb water faster from their hair than a traditional towel does. It's also extra gentle, so their hair will be safe from breakage and split ends.

    Natalie Brown / BuzzFeed

    "Since I ordered mine a little over a month ago, I've used it every night and every other time I shower, and am IN LOVE. I'm so happy with the way my hair finishes drying. It's not perfect, but I think it's pretty good for a heat-free and lazy routine. You put your hair up like you always have, but it's SUPER lightweight and doesn't pull." —Natalie Brown

    41. An Art Deco-inspired light therapy lamp that won't mess with their home decor vibes. Not only will it look great on their desk, but it can help ease seasonal affective disorder symptoms, regulate their sleep cycle, and make them less fatigued (among other things).

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    "I have one of these and it's super simple to use, even if you don't have a green thumb. Just drop the included plant pods, fill it with water, plug it in, and let it get down to business. It only took a few weeks for my lettuce and basil to be harvestable and now, after a couple months of patience, my tomatoes are starting to bloom. I love it because a) it makes me feel like a successful gardener b) thanks to the reservoir, my plants won't die if I forget to water them for weeks, and c) now I have fresh herbs at my disposal at all times." —Alice Prendergast

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $259.95. Available in three colours and in a smaller size. It comes with three basil plant pods, three tomato plant pods, and three lettuce plant pods, but you can purchase different varieties, too.

    They're also available as stickers, or in a slim, credit card shape.

    "I am a forgetful person who loses all of my stuff all the freaking time, especially my wallet. That's where this little device comes in handy. I just slide the Tile Slim into one of the credit card slots in my wallet and can now track where it is with the help of the free Tile app. If I can see that it's in my home on the map, but can't find it, I just ring the device and it sets off a symphony of noises that help me hunt it down." —Alice Prendergast

    "There is nothing that satisfies me more than an organized home, and this Dymo Label maker has helped me achieve that. It prints out aesthetically pleasing little labels that you can use on storage boxes, meal prep containers, and everything in between. I especially like using it for my spice containers, pantry jars, makeup storage, and plant pots (so I know exactly what's growing where)." —Alice Prendergast
