Make her Mother’s Day a celebration she’ll always remember...with a little chocolate help from Purdys.

Mothers are our number one fans, but they can also be the hardest person to shop for. So we want to make sure her day is full of love, laughter, and of course, tasty chocolate gifts. If you’re stuck on ideas on how to spoil Mom this year, look no further! We have mom-approved gifts and activities to make her feel special, spoiled, and oh-so appreciated.

What to do on Mother's day?

Have A Picnic in the Park!

Spring is in the air and with the weather warming up, why not treat Mom to a picnic and some Vitamin D? Grab a basket with her favourite homemade food (or takeout from her favourite restaurant), a bottle of her favourite champagne, and our Mother’s Day Classics Gift Box for dessert!

Can’t Go Wrong With Brunch

Ahh, the classic Sunday meal. The easy, fun, and feel-good nature of brunch makes it the perfect Mother’s Day celebration. Book a reservation at her local favourite restaurant, or impress her with your cooking skills and fill the table with classics: avocado toast, granola bowls, eggs benedict, pancakes, bagels and cream cheese. Our Mother’s Day Chocolate Gift Tin has a beautiful hummingbird design that will look perfect on the table next to a bouquet of freshly cut flowers.

Have Fun In the Kitchen

One of the best ways to bond is over food, but one of the most fun ways to connect is to make food together. Spend Mother’s Day poring over recipes and have some fun on a delicious baking project! Make her favourite chocolate desserts with our milk, dark, or white baking chocolate.

Mom’s Pick: Movie Marathon

Mom has full control of the remote on Mother’s Day. Schedule a movie or TV show marathon of her favourites, and cozy up on the couch. Get ready to pop some popcorn, pour some drinks, and put her favourite snacks within reach. The mom-approved Himalayan Pink Salt Caramels or Vegan Hawaiian Black Salt Caramels offer a great taste and some serious chew. 

Wine Night? Wine Not!

Is your mom a red or white gal? Or both? Bring some class and elegance to her Mother’s Day celebration this year with her very own wine pairing night! Select her favourite wines, cheese, and chocolates and you have yourself a five star experience. Bonus tip: create and print out custom pairing and tasting menus and impress her with your eye for detail. Such extravagance calls for decadent desserts like our Special Thanks Gift Basket where you get to sample all of our bestselling flavours and see which one pairs best with each wine.

Mom’s Choice!

Let’s face it, moms sacrifice a lot for us, and they rarely have the day to themselves. So let her choose what she wants to do for the entire day. Whether it’s a day at the beach, hiking in the mountains, or relaxing at a spa—the itinerary is her choice this Mother’s Day. If Mom needs to recharge and refuel during the day, our Mother’s Day Survival Kit is packed full of chocolate pick-me-ups.

Mother’s Day Chocolate

What better way to spoil all the moms in your life than with our Mother's Day collection? Make her day with our beautiful selection of chocolate gift tins, chocolate gift baskets, and chocolate lollies.

Simple and Personalized Makes Perfect

At the end of the day, the most special and meaningful gifts are the ones that come from the heart. Sometimes, a simple handwritten card will make Mom’s day. We offer a fantastic collection of chocolate card boxes that not only come with a delicious chocolate treat, but also a special space for you to write just how much you love and appreciate her. Or, create her own custom mix chocolate gift box. Select all of her favourite flavours to make a Purdys chocolate box that’s completely personalized to her taste. Give us a call, tell us which treats she loves, and we’ll do the rest.

Last Minute But Always Meaningful

If you’re in a time crunch, or you won’t be able to see her on Mother’s Day, our Mother’s Day e-Gift Cards can be sent instantly or scheduled to send ahead of time. Choose from our pre-made designs or upload your own picture to make it a unique and creative gift. You can also visit a Purdys shop at your nearest location, and our friendly team will be happy to help you choose the perfect gift.

Moms deserve our very best, so we hope these ideas help you plan her day to be full of joy and laughter. Our entire Mother’s Day Collection is available online and in-shops now, and it’s full of thoughtful, beautifully designed chocolate gifts for the moms, aunties, and grandmothers in your life. We offer free shipping across Canada for orders over $99, so get your Mother’s Day treats early.

Have a safe and happy Mother’s Day!
