Mother's Day Ideas


Mother’s Day is just about here, and children everywhere (and the husbands who are supposed to be helping them) are in danger of waking up this Sunday morning without a clue!

Protect yourself from forgot-mothers-day-itis with these four quick and easy suggestions courtesy of Mac’s. Whether you get moving today, tomorrow or one hour before she wakes up, we’ve got your back with these last minute ideas.



When you think Mother’s Day you probably think breakfast in bed, but if you don’t have the time or ingredients for a fancy meal, we’ve got you covered. Grab a cup of premium coffee or Tropicana orange juice, an orange or banana, and a warm breakfast croissant (all available fresh from your local Mac’s—hint, hint)!



Take Mom out for a candy smorgasbord! Everyone can choose their 3 favourite goodies and share them with each other. This is also the perfect chance for the kids to treat Mom for a change!



Is your Mom a Lottery Mom? (If she is, you'll probably know it!) Just imagine if your Mother's Day gift made her a millionaire! Even if it doesn't, the anticipation is half the fun with lottery tickets.



Walk or drive your Mom down to Mac’s for a Froster Swirl (Froster + ice cream = maybe the best thing ever) and then stroll around and enjoy the sunshine, get a mani-pedi or just catch up. Is the Froster Swirl the gift or is it the time spent with you? The answer is yes.



Do your kids need a bit of help with a gift? We've made things easier for you AND them by creating these handy coupons that can be printed out and personalized! Click here to download the PDF!
