Cape Breton Post - - Mother's Day -

1. The food-lov­ing mom: a gift bas­ket that show­cases lo­cal ar­ti­sanal food prod­ucts, such as cheeses, breads, and wines. It will be like a mini-ad­ven­ture into the culi­nary world, and it will taste great too! 2. The phil­an­thropic mom: a gift made in her name to a char­i­ta­ble cause close to her heart. 3. The Zen mom: a sooth­ing ob­ject such as a cof­fee ta­ble foun­tain, med­i­ta­tion pil­low, or a bon­sai. 4. The trav­el­ling mom: a book all about her dream des­ti­na­tion. 5. The busy mom: a home­made gift cer­tifi­cate of­fer­ing to do a chore of her choice, such as tak­ing her car to the garage for her, vac­u­um­ing her en­tire house, or de­junk­ing the garage. 6. The sporty mom: a yearly mem­ber­ship at a sports club or a pass for the hik­ing trails in a fed­eral or pro­vin­cial park in her area. 7. The fash­ion­ista mom: a trendy ac­ces­sory that she wouldn’t dare to buy on her own, such as a snazzy neck­lace, funky belt, or Jackie-O sun­glasses. 8. The mom who loves to pam­per her­self: a bas­ket of beauty prod­ucts, such as a home spa kit, makeup, or a skin care sys­tem. 9. The green mom: a do­mes­tic com­poster to help her re­duce the amount of garbage she sends to the dump. Or, you could of­fer to turn over her com­post pile for her. 10. The co­coon­ing mom: a cozy dress­ing gown or a good book to read in the late spring sun.
