This unique boutique specialized in durable and ethically made products is offering two themed boxes for Mother’s Day: Mama Mimosa, a gift box for moms who like comfort and feeling refreshed, and The Mom Care, a gift set containing products perfect for relaxation.

Open every day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Signatures Québécoises par Anne de Shalla, 350 Saint-Paul Street East, suite 24

For moms who love Quebec fashion, Anne de Shalla in Bonsecours Market is an obligatory stop. This boutique gathers works from several Quebec fashion creators, both well-known and up-and-comers. You will find a large selection of Nouï brand bags, made with plant-based leather and created by artisans from Quebec. Plus, since they’re on sale, this is the best time to get something for mom!

Open daily from 10 a.m. to 18 p.m.

Swell & Ginger, 231 Notre-Dame Street West

When thinking of Mother’s Day, thoughts of spring and updating your wardrobe for the season naturally follow. And for this occasion, why not offer a magnificent pair of sandals to mom? Boutique Swell & Ginger offers several models of shoes that are perfect for a walk around Old Montreal!

Open every day from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Site historique Marguerite-Bourgeoys, 400 Saint-Paul Street East

The museum’s store is packed with gift ideas for Mother’s Day: uniquely flavoured herbal teas, history books, candles, and even brooches in the shape of a “fille du Roy”. Up until May 8th, you can receive a 20% discount on all items classified under the category Gift Ideas - Mother's Day.

Open every day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Dubarry Furs, 206 Rue Saint-Paul O, Montréal, QC H2Y 1Z9

For moms that love timeless looks, head to Dubarry Furs and look through their leather Perfecto jackets. We love these long-lasting, classic pieces with a cut that’s flattering to every style and silhouette. And the best thing about Perfecto? You can wear this jacket both during fair weather and under your winter coat in the cold season, making it a gift that can be used all year long! The St-Paul Street boutique sells an impressive choice of cuts and colours, and we’d recommend stopping by the store to see them in person so their team can help you make this lifetime investment. Our favorite is the brown high-neck jacket with the crossover closure that looks great both zipped up or open.

Flowers and Food

Naïf, 227 Saint-Paul Street W

What would a Mother’s Day be without the classic flower bouquet? If you want it to last a long time, why not opt for a magnificent arrangement of unique dried flowers?
