MINI Street's 2020 Mother's Day Gift Guide for Shopping Local

MINI Street's 2020 Mother's Day Gift Guide for Shopping Local

Mother’s Day is just around the corner and while you may not be able to give mom a hug, you can still make sure she feels loved. While this day isn’t necessarily about gifts, it never hurts to be on the receiving end of one (or a few) — especially when parental duties have more than doubled!

With less than two weeks to go before Mother’s Day weekend, we’ve curated a local gift guide to help you celebrate the mothers, mothers-in-law, and moms-to-be in your life while supporting a small business, that just may be owned by a mom.

Sweet {Jolie}

We have a lot to say about Sweet {Jolie} but we’ll keep it short. Not only do they offer comfy everyday basics with a boho-twist for all shapes and sizes, but owner/operate Nicole Rice has built an online community for women dedicated to empowering, uplifting, and supporting one another! And her {Love} Project raises thousands of dollars for community-focused non-profits every year — an initiative we can definitely get behind.

Justine Ma Designer and Hand Letterer

If you’ve been part of the MINI Street community for some time, you probably know all about Justine Ma — Edmonton-based designer and hand letterer, known for her signature creative style and fun, loving community-minded personality. Together, we created the Be Kind collection and are continuously donating a portion of sales to the Kind Campaign: a local initiative supporting kindness events in Edmonton schools.

Nest in the City 

No Mother’s Day guide would be complete without mentioning the ultimate destination for mamas. Founded by Edmonton-designer Jenn, and mom of two, Nest in the City is a marketplace for motherhood. While their latest event has been postponed due to Covid-19 and physical distancing requirements, their latest endeavor — The Mama Shop — launches this weekend!
