Mother's Day

Can’t be with Mom this Mother’s Day?

Deliver a hug right to her door!

This Mother’s Day will be so different. We never saw this coming… Who would have thought that we would be told to self-isolate and stay away from our loved ones in case we pass a virus on to them.

The thing is, even though we can facetime, text, and talk on the phone, we cannot give Mom a hug, or get the family together to celebrate one of the most important people in our lives.

What if I tell you that you can send a virtual hug to her, that will arrive right to her door? (all orders are being shipped via FedEx Ground (Canada) or DHL (U.S.) to minimize contact.

I call it a virtual hug because it is an incredibly soft, fleece throw blanket, or cozy fleece blanket scarf and it FEELS just like a hug. Not only that, we print your words on it, and can even include a favorite photograph.

Mom wrapped in a hug!

Each year we create a new design to choose from. For this year, I chose the words of one of my customers, who wrote them for her Mom and Dad upon graduation from nursing school. With her permission, of course. The words read:

Whether it was the way you comforted me when I was down, or the way your hugs magically wiped away my frown, you have been there day after day for me.

Thank you for not only being my Mom, but also my mentor through this crazy thing called life.

I love you.

Mom’s Initial printed in the upper right corner of the blanket

As you can see from the photos above, your words are printed in the lower left corner of the throw blanket, and your Mom’s initial is printed in the upper right corner of the blanket.

Our throw blankets are incredibly soft, and are available in cream, grey, or sand. These two are our most popular Mother’s Day blankets from previous years!

A young man wrote these words for his Mom’s throw blanket, and said he would be honoured to share these words with others.
Special bond between Mother & Daughter

New this year, are our blanket scarves/wraps. They are another wonderful way to send a message to someone, share a memory, share a laugh and make them feel loved – all at the same time!

Blanket Wrap with Words printed on the middle (back) of the blanket scarf.
The scarf includes an initial for Mom to the left of the quote and a signature line such as “Love, _____” on the left side of the blanket scarf.

Our fleece blanket scarves are perfect for Mom to wrap around her shoulders while reading a book, or watching TV. It is an easy scarf to pack for all those future vacations Mom will be ready to go on!!

The blanket scarves/wraps are available in an off-white/light cream color and are approximately 24″ x 60″. The scarves take up less room, so can easily be carried, and left wrapped around your shoulders.

Also new this year are our silky scarves. They are made from silky polyester and are a statement piece to add to your wardrobe.

Many colors available.
Silky scarf wrapped

Our silky scarves are handmade and approximately 25″ x 76″, depending on the fabric. You can choose from white, cream, light blue, pale pink, turquoise, light grey or smoky blue. The pale pink and pale grey are approximately 20″ x 76″ as they are made from a slightly heavier fabric.

Imagine all the ways you can personalize your Mother’s Day gift this year! Your words and/or images, a throw blanket, blanket scarf or silky scarf – all delivered to Mom’s door!

For some of us who have lost their Moms, this is an especially difficult day. My Mom passed away three years ago, now, and although it is a difficult day, it is a day to remember her. She was a powerhouse that everyone loved, so this is the day I say thanks for the time we had together.

The perfect memorial gift – symbolically sending a hug from Mom. Something soft to cuddle up with in moments of grief.

And for the Mother who sadly lost a child…
