Apart from that time I forgot Mother’s Day and gave her a card from the Hasty Market (not my proudest moment 🤦♀️) my mom’s always appreciated any gift, large or small. I know she’d be quite happy with pictures of her grandkids and a call — she lives 450 km away in Toronto — but if there’s any day I want to spoil her, Mother’s Day is it. She deserves the best! Enter Foodiepages. The Canadian co. curates gift boxes featuring the best sips, eats and treats from some of my favourite Canadian makers and small businesses and ships worldwide. They specialize in corporate gift boxes but you don’t have to be a biz to appreciate (and gift!) their fabulous selection for virtually every occasion. I have two of their Mother’s Day boxes to share with you — this one today for my mom and another tomorrow that I ordered for my bestie. Here’s a look at Foodie Pages’ In The Pink gift box. (Foodiepages sent me this box for promotional purposes and tomorrow’s box I paid for myself.)
In The Pink features one of two sips (you choose!) — this sparkling rosé from Ontario’s Westcott Vineyards or TÖST rosé, an all-natural, non-alcoholic, sparkling bevvie with white tea, ginger and elderberry.
Most of Foodiepages’ packaging is reusable and recyclable but beverages are bubble-wrapped to ensure they arrive safe and sound. Tomorrow’s post will give you a better look at the co’s sweet signature polka-dot boxes.
The Mother’s Day collection ranges from $65 to $125.
Each box includes a pretty product card with a guide to the contents on one side and a $10 discount to Foodiepages on the other. I’ve included the product descriptions in italics below.
ZEST Water Colour Pink Skies Scented Candle · Lohn · In 2018, Katerina and Victoria used their knowledge in chemical engineering and experience in the beauty industry to create candles that evoke a time, a place, a journey. The sunny bursts of grapefruit and orange essentials that are grounded by woodsy must and fresh rhubarb capture a perfect spring day.
Made with vegan, cruelty-free, and paraben-free ingredients, this dreamy candle throws a wonderful fragrance even unlit. I’ve had it sitting beside my bed for a few days and it smells fresh, fruity and clean. I don’t want to put it back in the box! My mom will love it.
Grapefruit & Neroli Hand & Body Lotion · Apt 6 · Located in Calgary, Apt 6 creates small batch wellness products that encourage self-care and wellness. This butter-rich lotion absorbs quickly and moisturizes the skin and is free of harsh parabens, harmful fragrances, SLS, sulphates, and phthalates. Not to mention, a portion of sales go towards non-profit organizations focused on child mental health.
SOAK Rose Petal Bath Bomb · SOAK · After leaving a 10-year corporate career, Candace shifted her focus to creating luxurious soaps and bath bombs. Indulge in the rich oils of a bath bomb that is formulated with natural products to sooth and nourish even the most sensitive skin. Pop this bath bomb into the tub and watch while it fizzes, releasing the moisturizing properties of coconut and avocado oil.
I can’t speak for the lotion but I’ve tried some Apt 6 shower steamers and a lip balm and they’re fantastic. And how much do we love a company that gives back? ❤️ Read their story if you have a chance. They’ve got a great ‘why’.
And what’s more luxurious than rose petals in the bath? I’ve used SOAK’s bath bombs a few times and didn’t get out of the tub ’til the water was lukewarm and my fingers and toes were pruney. My mom is going to feel so pampered!
2019 Brilliant Traditional Sparkling Rosé · Westcott Vineyards · Niagara-based Westcott Vineyards is a small, artisanal winery focused on hand-crafted chardonnay and pinot noir wines. Their much anticipated Traditional Method Sparkling Rosé is dry with fresh aromas and flavours of watermelon, strawberry and raspberry.
The perfect pink drink for a rosey-coloured box! My mom appreciates a nice rosé, especially with friends. I can picture her pouring generous glasses for her pals on a sunny spring day.
Linnea Vegan Leather A5 Diary · Baltic Club · Through their shared passion for creativity, Mélanie and Brice sought out to create simplistic stationery that evokes happiness and wonder. This notebook is perfect for daily journal entries or any other writing, such as task lists, meal and habit tracking, or travel memory entries. The cover is made from smooth vegan leather that is both soft, yet sturdy.
My mom is a busy lady and relies on notebooks to record and remember everything from her social calendar to her volunteer work to the books she’s read and wants to read and the recipes she wants to try. And so on. More than once she’s pointed to a notebook and said “my life’s in there!”. This multi-purpose journal is right up her alley. And so pretty!
My mom’s at a stage in her life where she doesn’t want to accumulate a lot of “stuff” but still enjoy the finer things in life. Foodiepages makes it easy to spoil her and support some fantastic Canadian businesses too, delivering the best sips and eats and pretty and practical treats for Mother’s Day and other occasions. I know she’s going to light up with she sees this polka-dot box at her door and that makes me feel “in the pink” too.
See what Foodiepages gift box I ordered for my bestie tomorrow!
Foodiepages’ In The Pink gift box is $125 as pictured or $105 with the non-alcoholic bevvie.
