Celebrate Mother’s Day with Local
Let’s hear it for the moms! Cheers to all the mothers in our lives that provide us with support and care. This Mother’s Day there are lots of locally-inspired ways to celebrate mom and say thank-you, even if you can’t say it in person right now.
Follow along for suggestions on local food and drink items you can order online, ship, and drop off for mom this Mother’s Day.
Local wine, beer, spirits or cider
Is your mother is a fan of Nova Scotia wine, beer, spirits and cider? Beverage alcohol producers around the province have been working to adapt their online orders to provide improved curbside pick up, delivery and shipping. Visit the Taste of Nova Scotia Get Your Hands on Local, at Home page to see a list of the options Taste members are providing. In some cases, it may be possible to ship directly to mom’s door!
Give mom an extra sweet treat this Mother’s Day. From chocolate to pastries, Taste members across the province are providing lots of options for sending a gift to mom. We suggest Sweet Spot Chocolate Shop, Just Us! Coffee, Petite Patrie Chocolate, Sable Shortbread, Mrs. MacGregor’s Shortbread, or the Cake Lady. For the gluten-free mom, Schoolhouse Gluten-Free Gourmet products are local and delicious!
Coffee and Tea
If mom loves a good cup of coffee or hot mug of tea, consider sending her a bag of locally roasted coffee from Laughing Whale Coffee Roasters, Just Us! Coffee, Nova Coffee, Authentic Seacoast Company Full Steam Coffee or a few containers of tea from The Tea Brewery or Cochrane Family Farm’s online shop.
For something a little different, send mom a unique Nova Scotia culinary product. Tangled Garden, Helen B’s and Galloping Cows create jams and jellies using high quality Nova Scotia ingredients and are currently offering online ordering. Big Cove Foods gourmet spice blends are perfect for the mom that enjoys spending time in the kitchen. Alternatively, NovaScotian Crystal produces beautiful local crystal that’s a perfect gift for mom, for any occasion.
Support local eats this Mother’s Day by dropping off a meal from one of the Taste of Nova Scotia member restaurants currently offering special dinners for mom. Inverary Resort, Kitchen Door, the Biscuit Eater and Founders House Dining and Drinks are all offering full Mother’s Day meals for take out. Visit the Taste of Nova Scotia Get Your Hands on Local, at Home page to see a full list of the Taste members providing take out offerings.
Although you may not be able to spend time with your mother now, we know you love food and drink as much as we do and a gift certificate is a great way to make a plan to celebrate Mother’s Day when this is over. Alternatively, gift certificates for a culinary adventure from Grape Escapes, Go North Tours or the Magic Winery Bus are also fantastic local gift options.
