It's time to find a gift for Mom! This holiday season, show Mom just how much you love them with a thoughtful gift from a small, locally owned business. We have compiled a list of local goodies that Mom will be ecstatic to receive, and everything can be found within the North End of Halifax!
Gift them the cool Mom essentials
Help Mom look and feel cool with these hilarious graphic socks! These socks can be found at Biscuit General Store at 2050 Gottingen Street. The socks come in a variety of colours and quotes, including my personal favourite: "Don't make mommy be a B*tch!" Your Mom is guaranteed to be the coolest mom in town when wearing these socks!
The socks start at $19 and can be purchased in-store at 2050 Gottingen Street, or online here.
Give the gift of sustainable fashion
Moms like to look fashionable too! And, your Mom is going to be so impressed when they find out the gift from you is not only fashionable, but is sustainable too! Check out the cozy, one-of-a-kind handmade sweaters from Meyvn Sustainable Apparel. These sweaters go for $48 - $74 and can be purchased in-store at 2240 Gottingen Street.
Another sustainable fashion item are these super trendy corduroy pants from Slowly Slowly at 5685 Cunard Street. This pant is a high waist cargo trouser made in a soft cotton corduroy featuring romantic blooming rose embroidery on the back. And includes a recycled leather Gah! patch on the back. If you don't think your Mom will be into the romantic look, don't worry! These pants also come in navy blue, featuring horse silhouettes on the back. The pants can be purchased for $279 in-store, or online here.
Treat Mom to a drink!
It has been a looooong year - Mom deserves a drink! One thing the North End of Halifax if full of are craft breweries and distilleries. Here are a couple gift ideas Mom is sure to love:
Give Frost Bite from Chain Yard Cider a try! Frost Bite is a handpicked blend of Nova Scotian apples treated to a slow, cool ferment, and matured with cinnamon, nutmeg and a touch of ginger. Surprisingly food friendly, this cider’s Toasty spice and bold molasses notes are perfect to warm up cold winter days and nights, share with friends, or enjoy as a quiet glass in front of the fire. This cider comes in a 750ml bottle and can be purchased for $13.04 in-store at 2606 Agricola Street, or online here.
Maybe Mom is more of a beer person... They are sure to love anything from Propeller Brewery! But, what Mom is going to love even more than the beer, is the home delivery! Mom doesn't even have to leave the house.
Make sure to make an order of $40 or more, and you'll get FREE home delivery. Find more information about Propeller Brewery home delivery here.
