Mother's Day: Our Favourite Gifts & Traditions

Mother's Day is just around the corner, and the boutique is bustling with customers picking up pretty gifts for mom. We've got tons of bath and beauty products, the softest robes and pajamas you could imagine, and beautiful bedding that is sure to make her smile. For fun, we've rounded up the Au Lit staff members to see how they'll be celebrating all things Mom this year.

"This Mother's Day, I'm looking forward to a relaxing morning with my daughter. She's a pastry chef, and I couldn't imagine anything more wonderful than her homemade crepes with berry compote. I'll spend the morning in my favourite egyptian cotton Fontenay nightshirt, and perhaps take a bath in the afternoon. It's my go-to indulgence, especially with our Lavender Milled Shea Soap. The lavender scent is the only thing that helps me relax."



"Each year, my brother and I team up to give our mom the ultimate day off. We do our best to pamper her; we clean the house from top to bottom and cook her favourite thai chicken chili stir fry. My mom is obsessed with our super-soft Portofino towels, so I'll be giving her a new set in charcoal to match her bathroom. She also loves to garden, so I'll be bringing her a selection of fresh herbs to plant in the backyard." 


"Ever since having my own daughter, Mother's Day has become a really special day for our family. I spend the day with my mother and daughter, and all three generations head out for high tea at the King Edward Hotel. My husband and I just re-decorated our bedroom in the prettiest shade of pale blue-gray, so I'm hoping he will treat me to my favourite bedding, the Loft embroidered duvet cover (with matching sheets!) in Airforce."


"Without a doubt, the best way to treat mom is with a plane ticket to a fabulous destination. Make sure to supply her with a little bag of luxuries on the side, like our amazing Travel Pillow (I never go anywhere without it), silk eye mask, and K. Hall's Milk Hand & Body Cream."


"Nothing would make me happier than spending the entire day in bed! I would relax and enjoy snuggling with my kids and reading books all day long. I'm also obsessed with monograms, so receiving a plush terry robe with my initials on it or a new set of monogrammed sheets would make my day."


"I have the most wonderful son on the planet, so for me every day is like Mother's Day. He is incredibly thoughtful; he is constantly buying me flowers and cooking me dinner. This Mother's Day is extra special because it is the first year that my new daughter-in-law has joined our family! I would love for all of us to spend the day together in our newly re-decorated living room. We just got a gorgeous new linen sofa and the Miles toss cushions and Oxford throw blanket look fantastic on it!"


"My mom lives about an hour away, so spending time with her on Mother's Day is always extra special. My dad, sister and I try to treat her to the things she loves best: a huge bouquet of lilacs, a pair of comfy gray Donna pajamas, a K. Hall peony candle, and a nice bottle of wine. We always go to The Keg for dinner to treat her to her favourite food, a big steak!"
