Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 9, and after this past year, moms the world over can use some extra appreciation. From flowers and gifts to great brunch spots and places to buy treats in Coquitlam, here are seven ways to treat your mom on her special day – even if you can’t be with her in person.


A tried-and-true way to put a smile on her face. These local florists are open for you to walk in and even some offer delivery. Be sure to place your order ahead of time.



For a thoughtful gift for your one-of-a-kind mom, consider purchasing from a local artisan. Check out the new location of the Poirier Street Farmers Market, open Sundays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., where you’ll find vendors selling local fruits and vegetables, hand-crafted jewelry, pottery, clothing, body care products and artisanal food projects. Take a walk through with Mom on her day or pick up goodies to deliver.

Another great option is the Place des Arts Artisan Shop, which offers hand-crafted gift items including original artwork, housewares, accessories, cards and more. You’ll also find a great selection of locally handmade gifts at Artisan Gifts & Flowers in Austin Heights.

Coffee and Treats

Take a walk around your neighbourhood and try one of these cafés with amazing goodies, paired with caffeine. Take it to go to a nearby park or take a seat on their patio.

Brunch – Take Out or Patio Style

Support your favourite local restaurant by ordering take out or visit one of the many patios that are open for that outdoor dining experience we all love. Bonus – with new patios opening daily, give somewhere new a try – the business will appreciate it!
