6 Unique Mother’s Day Activities For Whatever Your Mom Is Into

Mother’s Day comes but once a year, and if your mom is anything like mine then she’s going to expect you to make a bit of effort; and why shouldn’t she!? How many birthdays has she thrown for you? How many parties has she planned? It’s the one day a year fully dedicated to paying tribute to all that your mom has done, and there are a ton of special and fun ways to do that.

This year instead of the typical brunch and card, why not take mom on a bit of an adventure? A mother-daughter date per se.

Here are the best 6 events happening in Toronto for you and mom to check out, whether she’s an outdoors lover or a fan of a nice cocktail with a view.

We all know green space is hard to come by living downtown, and if your mom is a city dweller she’s sure to face the same problems (even if she’s not, herbs can prove very tricky to grow outdoors). So why not bond over some gardening? The Click and Grow Smart Indoor Garden is a gift-turned-activity that you and your mom can enjoy for months to come, as it’s a great way to watch some delicious herbs grow right before your eyes. Just plug in, add water, and watch the plants grow.

For The Cultured Mom:

If your mom has a passion for the classics, the Spadina Museum is hosting a Mother’s Day event just for her; think Great Gatsby vibes. Music from the ’20s and ’30s will be performed by Mim Adams Duo in the Drawing Room of Spadina Museum on the Steinway grand piano. Enjoy optional tours of the museum and refreshments that will be served including scones and hand-blended teas. The Spadina Museum is one of the only places in the city where you can get a glimpse of Toronto during the 1910-1930 time period. It’s super charming so I bet your mom will be thrilled!

Anchors away! If your mom is a fan of being on the water, why not take her on a lunch time cruise of the city? With what appears to be a sunny weekend ahead, you and your mom will get to enjoy beautiful views of the city and The Toronto Islands from the ship as you cruise around Lake Ontario. Included is a welcome drink, a freshly prepared lunch, and great entertainment!
