Mother’s Day Gift Guide: Unwrap Winnipeg (Part 1)

Mother’s Day is wonderful. A day to celebrate and honour Mom. This is great, right? Sure it is, but it can also be stressful. You’re likely buying not for just one mom but your friends who are moms, the unofficial moms who helped make you the person you are today, family members who are moms—it’s a lot to cover. Lucky for you, we’ve combed Winnipeg far and wide to share our FAVOURITE THINGS (totally stole that from Oprah) that mom will love for this Mother’s Day. We are so proud to offer you a uniquely Winnipeg gift guide for Mother’s Day. We have so many wonderful items (and PRIZES! Yes, we said prizes) to share with you, we had to make a Part Two to our gift guide. Yay for you, dear readers.


Throughout our Gift Guide we share gifts focused on pampering mom and making her feel special, and even ones that you can do with mom—her favourite. 😀


AVEDA Institute Winnipeg—there is something soothing about walking into an AVEDA salon. From the first step you can already smell the treat you are in for. If you haven’t already visited AVEDA’s signature institute in the heart of the Exchange District, it is a treat for all your senses. The Institute offers AVEDA training which means services are available for a reduced cost but the experience is still incredible. AVEDA Institute Winnipeg offers gift cards for its hair salon services and its in-store Experience Centre Boutique. The Experience Centre Boutique is filled with AVEDA face, body, and hair products that are eco-friendly and plant-based. Aveda’s environmentally conscious mission and natural products is why its Assistant Director, Nan Campbell says, “AVEDA is the perfect Mother’s Day offering as it is good for Mom and good for Mother Earth.”

Poplar Grove Winery—Based in Penticton, British Columbia, Poplar Grove Winery has been creating quality wine since 1993. Their Wine Club has three subscription choices to suit your preference. Each package contains 6 bottles of wine, specifically selected by our Winemaker from exclusive, pre-release and top quality offerings. Subscription packages are sent each March, July & November to total only 18 bottles per calendar year. What a great way to give Mom the convenience of having a selection of award-winning wines at the ready for entertaining friends, pairing with a meal, or to add to her wine collection. Your local Winnipeg Poplar Grove representative is Honoure Black and she would be delighted to get your membership set-up for mom!



Gravity Lingerie—Did you know close to 90% of women are wearing the wrong bra size? That means some major support is needed out there. A proper bra fitting can alleviate back and shoulder pain, spillage, and just give her a fantastic overall look. A personalized bra fitting by a trained professional (like Judy or Sherry at Gravity) should be done regularly or if one has lost or gained weight. With over 60 years combined experience, Judy and Sherry will help make you feel at home in their cozy boutique on Stafford, just a few steps from Tre Visi Café. Gravity Lingerie also has a beautiful selection of silk and cotton sleepwear for a wonderful night’s sleep.
