Celebrate Mom and Support our Local Community: Win – Win!

Let’s be honest: Celebrating major holidays with friends and family is a bit more challenging with physical distancing these days.  Good news though…even if you can’t host your mom for brunch and invite extended family over, you can still commemorate the occasion and #SupportFredLocal by purchasing from the many shops and artisans that we have in our own community.

Honoring our mothers shouldn't be missed because of what's on going in the world. Now is a great time to make new traditions. That extra effort and creativity will really resonate and be appreciated, especially during this time. Fortunately, we have you covered!  Make mom feel the love this Mother’s Day (May 10) with some great ideas from local Fredericton businesses.  Most will deliver it right to your door!

Art, Jewellery & Décor

A great combination every mom would love!

Gift your mom with some art supplies from Endeavours Art! You can order online and the best part is they deliver! Or perhaps a work of art from Gallery 78 or Gallery on Queen? Here’s a cool idea! Vena Carr Illustrations will craft a customized illustration of your family! Check out her website for ideas.

It’s safe to say that most women love jewellery, am I right, ladies? Our #SupportFredLocal features a variety of handcrafted jewellery like Jewelz by Angie, and Fredericton’s own Aitken’s Pewter or Spicer Cole Fine Jewellers.

Take care with a little self-care!

Even though she won’t admit it, deep down, the mom in your life appreciates a little pampering. I mean, who wouldn’t? You shouldn’t have any problem finding that perfect gift that will guarantee that mom gets some “her” time.  Perhaps a basket of goodies featuring items from local suppliers likes Lemon Balm Lane, Naturally Tempted Bath Boutique, Rustik Soap Company, UpFront Cosmetics, Vibrant Salon & Spa or Boss Beauty Lounge

Throw in a gift certificate from places like Platinum Vibe or Atlantic Hairstyling & Aesthetics Academy  or Serenity Wellness so that mom can indulge at a later date!

Or, maybe mom’s idea of self-care is some cool gear or clothes to hit the trails from Radical Edge or an outfit from clothing store Eloise?

Surround her with flowers and her favourite book!

One of the most popular gifts to give mom? Flowers, of course! We are lucky to have a number of florists/nurseries in Fredericton that would love to help you celebrate someone special. And of course, they deliver! Whether it is a fresh floral spring bouquet, annuals, perennials or a lovely potted plant, check out Scott’s Nursery, Hanson Road Flower Co, Trites Flower Shop or Grower Direct. (Insider’s tip: you will score huge brownie points for this, promise!).

Make her Dinner (well, sort of!)

Order from a long list of local Fredericton restaurants with a selection of delicious cuisine. Just in time for Mother’s Day Weekend STMR.36 BBQ & Social, the new restaurant at the Delta Fredericton will be offering a Mother’s Day BBQ Pop-Up menu!  Throw in something sweet from Chess PieceMonkey Cakes or a gift certificate from the Donut Bar to enjoy later and you’ve got the makings of a perfect night out (inside) just for mom.

We all agree these are unconventional times; it’s for this reason we need to uphold special days like Mother’s Day now more than ever. With the click of a mouse or a phone call, you can make her day and #SupportFredLocal at the same time!
