It’s been one heck of a year, but no one has held it down quite like your mom. Whether it was conversation, a care package or words of wisdom, she was there, more than likely keeping you sane. This May, for those who were planning on saying thank you in the universal language of gift-giving, do it with something more unique to Calgary – that might also help a local company. Here are 13 places in Calgary where you’ll find the perfect Mother’s Day gift.


This Mother’s Day it will be even harder than those before to take Mom out for brunch, lunch, dinner or tea. Instead, bring the eats to her with High Tea from the Lougheed House! Not only does this experience include finger foods, desserts, and sips from Chef Judy Wood, it will include a virtual Q and A with Jimmy-Lee Vennard, a professional estate butler – who will lead a high society gossip sesh.

This year, give the gift of relaxation – because let’s be real, after the year we’ve just had, that’s probably what your Mom really wants. With the Hyatt’s Spa and Stay package, not only will you be giving her a 60-minute massage you’ll also be giving her an overnight stay, grab-and-go breakfast, and exclusive access to their hotel whirlpool. Sounds like a pretty great gift, if you ask us!
