Mother’s day also happens to fall in the crux of spring, when the blooms are blooming and the birds are back to enjoy the moderate Canadian temperatures. So, it only seems fitting that when you select a gift for your mother, it should portray the rejuvenated energy of the season, as well as your plain ol’ appreciation for all she does.
