Mother’s Day is quickly approaching – but no need to fret about a gift, we’ve got you covered with a handy list of unique ideas that’s sure to impress whatever type of Mom you have!

Let’s get to it so you can get shopping.

Mothers Day Ideas for 4 Types of Moms



This is the mom who’d pass on brunch to tie up her sneaks and hit the trails. We also bet this Mom would be down for a post run patio bevy (it is Mother’s Day, after all).

 IDEA #1:  Grab an ice cream cone from Bus Stop Refreshments and then go for a stroll along the Meewasin Riverbanks! You could also pack up a picnic and dine with your Mom while admiring the South Saskatchewan River.

IDEA #2: Swing by Midtown and pick up some spring outerwear for her from Sport Check or Foursight Supply Co.

IDEA #3: Soak in those rays and grab a fancy cocktail and a fresh salad on Parlor’s patio!


Nothing lights this Mom up more than a creative experience with the ones she loves.

IDEA #1: The SSO Mother’s Day Concert is the perfect way to relax with your music-loving mama. Join the musicians of the SSO’s Chamber Ensemble for a special concert in memory of Flute Emeritus, Randi Nelson.

IDEA #2: Pop by the all new Charlow YXE and grab a beautiful puzzle, a hand poured candle, and a super cool card.

IDEA #3: The Saskatoon Public Library has a lovely Take + Make Mother’s Day package happening for the creative Mom with little ones in her life. Pick up a free craft kit at any library until 7 p.m., then join for a live story time and craft session via Zoom! (Saturday at 11 a.m. – 12 p.m. )

The way to this Mom’s heart is definitely through her stomach. In case you haven’t noticed, DTNYXE has a pretty hot culinary scene so this Mom is EASY to shop for.


IDEA #1: It’s no secret Shift Restaurant in the Remai Modern is known for their fantastic food. This year they are offering a special Mother’s Day Brunch Box! The box contains a simple, stylish spread of house made scones, granola parfaits, and more! Pre-order by Friday, May 7 at 5 p.m. for pickup on Saturday, May 8 from 2 p.m. –5 p.m.


IDEA #2: Treat your Mom to a 4-course or 7-course Alla Famiglia at Little Grouse on the Prairie! This special, family-style meal comes in two sizes – small and large (although, Little Grouse is always so good that we’ll probably suggest the large)!

IDEA #3: Living Sky Café never disappoints. Treat your Mom to the brunch she deserves with tonnes of specials and goodies just for her!

She fancy, huh? This Mom is all about the glitz and glamour (she secretly lives for Mother’s Day but would never admit it). It’s not hard to figure out that all this Mom wants for her special day is to be pampered to the 9s.

IDEA #1: Manhattan Casuals is the one stop shop for the fancy Mom. Even their loungewear is chic as it gets. Give them a call or pop into the store and let these beautiful mamas on the right help you pick out a gift Mom would love! Hot tip: you can also order online if you’d prefer to stay home.

IDEA #2: Swank Shoe Lounge on 2nd Ave always dazzles us with their collection of stylish kicks made for the mom who loves looking great at all times. 

IDEA #3: Paramount DaySpa Salon Boutique has your back for absolutely beautiful gift ideas. For example, check out this “Shop Local” customizable Mother’s Day Gift Pack!
