Time to spoil mom! Foodiepages gift boxes send her the best from Canadian small businesses for Mother’s Day 🇨🇦

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.)

The Gift Refinery Spring 2022 🇨🇦

Hello hello! I have a few really wonderful boxes to share with you this week, all of them Canadian 🇨🇦 which is interesting because I feel like it wasn’t so long ago that pickings were slim. Three or four years later it’s a whole different story, with several exceptional made-in-Canada boxes to choose from in virtually every category. Today’s box is one of the more luxurious offerings and a great value for the price, IMHO. It’s the Spring delivery from The Gift Refinery, a quarterly lifestyle subscription box that sends you a 7 to 10 luxe Canadian-made products from beauty to housewares and everything in between. I treated myself to this one and I’m so glad I did. Let’s take a look.

🍬 Squish Gummy Lover Club 🍬 🇨🇦

A coworker and I were talking at the end of a long shift.

Me: Dang, my back is killing me.

Coworker: Join the club.

Me: Is it like a back support group?


I don’t why I thought I needed a joke to warm you up for this post. If you’ve read this far you’re probably smiling already. I mean, a club for gummy lovers! What’s not to like? 😀 We’ve been fans of Montreal artisanal candy co. Squish since day one so when I was ordering some of their gummy gift boxes for Christmas and saw they’d launched their own subscription service I was like tell me more! Available in classic and vegan and shipped every other month, the highly giftable Gummy Lover Club offers subscribers the chance to sample a curated assortment from some 50+ gourmet gummy flavours plus collectible stickers. Squish sent me December’s classic delivery to try. Shall we take a look?
