Since mid-March, we’ve all had to change how we celebrate family and personal milestones. Gone are the days of throwing birthday parties at home, or taking mom out to brunch for Mother’s Day. Now that we’re all physically distancing, we have to get creative with celebrations.

Saying “I love you” to the moms and mother figures in your life with a thoughtful gift makes a difference now more than ever, so we’ve compiled a list of some Cochrane retailers who are making it easy to show you care.

Cochrane Coffee Traders

Motivate mom to take some well-deserved me-time with these thoughtful kits from Coffee Traders. Choose between packages that include coffee, wine, syrups, cinnamon buns or a to-go mug, all delivered straight to her door Sunday morning.

Lost Sock Landromat

Treat mom to a laundry-free day! Gift certificates available for wash and fold Services. Lost Sock will sort, wash, dry, and neatly fold the laundry so it’s ready to put away!

Cochrane Movie House

Surprise mom with movie night and a very pink gift pack which includes a bag of pink and caramel popcorn, Guy’s Cafe & Bakery’s famous chocolate covered strawberries and a bottle of Rosé!

Mezzo Caffe

Mezzo Caffe has put together some super cute custom gift boxes that contain a flower from Brilliant Blooms, a $10 Mezzo Caffe gift card, plus some surprise treats!

Guy’s Cafe and Bakery

Mom shouldn’t have to cook on Mother’s Day. Guy’s has put together a fabulous BBQ rib dinner including bronto beef ribs, twice baked mashed potatoes, coleslaw, chocolate dipped strawberries and pink and caramel popcorn from the Cochrane Movie House! Add a bottle of red wine, and call it a night!

Real Treat Kitchen 

Flowers are great, but you truly can’t go wrong with a gift of gourmet cookies. Mom is sure to love local organic cookies from Real Treat Kitchen. A variety of gift boxes and flavours available to satisfy any craving!

Hermana Chocolate

An absolute feast for the senses, these aesthetically stunning, authentically handcrafted local chocolates are sure to make mom smile. Hermana Chocolate’s Mother’s Day collection is now available and comes with free delivery to Cochrane and Calgary.

Nourish At Home
Grocery shopping has become very stressful these days, and some foods and ingredients have become hard to find, so a gift card for food delivery will make her life a lot easier. Send mom a gift card for Nourish at Home or even a gift card from her favourite grocery store to ensure her next grocery delivery is on you.

Hollyberry Soaps

If the mom you’re celebrating this year has young children, she definitely deserves some downtime. What better way to relax than with a hot bath and some pampering products from Hollyberry Soaps. We love the creativity behind their bath bomb bouquets. Each stem has a unique scented bath bomb that Mom can take to the bath all wrapped up in a cute bouquet.

Planted Rocks Terrariums and Supplies

Send Mom some spring cheer with a plant delivery from the Plant Place. They have a wide selection of house plants, cacti, succulents and handmade gifts with free delivery in Cochrane.

Pure Anada Natural Cosmetics

We all have dry skin right now thanks to constant hand washing, so mom could probably use a little help she can get to moisturize her skin. Gift the moms in your life some sweet relief from cracked, parched skin with thoughtful — and practical! — skin and body care kits from Pure Anada. We love this cute little duo of strawberry-kiwi lip scrub and lip balm, just in time for spring!

Poor David’s Cochrane

We love the creativity of these cute gift kits, curated by Poor David’s. Choose between a Dear Mom, Fierce Gramma, or Thank You hand rescue balm, plus the package comes with one medium Wood Wick candle, a bag of fizzy cocktail gummies and a handmade colourful bar of soap.
