Tailored Gift Ideas for Mom!


Sunday May 10th is Mother’s Day! This year instead of a crowded brunch or bouquet of fresh flowers, we are recommending some creative ways to honor the woman who has always put you first and loved you unconditionally!

Macaron Baking at Ollia Macarons & Tea

Come bake with Mom! Ollia Macarons & Tea is Calgary’s premier macaron boutique. Their talented culinary artists have mastered the fine art of creating classic French meringue confections with a modern twist. Even though our mothers are the best cooks on earth, the elegant macaron can often be finicky to make flawless. Ollia Macarons & Tea will teach you the ins and outs of creating the perfect shell and ganache filling. While baking you can enjoy Ollia’s own line of organic loose leaf teas, and at the end of the class you will leave with a box of your own hand crafted macarons. Even better; the entire facility is gluten-free, a perfect gift for celiacs. For more information click here.

Custom Tailored Wine

Vine Styles, a unique wine store with the motto “wine done different” has a team of accomplished sommeliers’ that pride themselves on thinking outside the box. Their experienced team will tailor wine shopping to your individual taste buds, creating an experience that is fun, approachable and engaging. Vine Styles is conveniently located on 10th Avenue and 8th Street SW in the Beltline and at 1127b Kensington Road NW.

Let's face it, we're all different, and our Mothers loved us for being that way! Mom deserves a gift just as unique as you, so this year, Vine Styles is offering three style packages, at three different prices, each with three bottles!

Style Me: Rose & Bubbly Your mom works hard and deserves to unwind, nothing better than a glass of bubbly in the bathtub! They’ve put together three gift packages with three different bottles of rose and bubbly prices ranging from $75-$155.

Style Me: Whites Mother’s Day is a sure sign that warm weather is here to stay. After a long hot day in the sun, sometimes a refreshing glass of white wine is just what you need! Each of these packages includes a white from each of their signature style sections: Crisp, Mellow and Lush, ranging from $75-$115.

Style Me: Reds Whether she enjoys to barbeque or relax with a good book, a glass of red wine is often desired. These packages include a red from each of their signature style sections: Elegant, Smooth and Bold, ranging from $75-$135, something she'll be sure to love! 

Get ahead of the game and pre-order your Mother's Day gift package from Smith’s very own, trusted sommelier: Selena. Contact telephone or selena@vinestyles.ca
