Support Local For #MothersDay

I love Mother’s Day so much – following the excitement of International Women’s Day (which I celebrate like a National holiday, because the #FutureIsFemale), it’ a time to show the moms in my life how special they are. From florals to fancy jewelry, I wanted to share a few local options for you to celebrate with me this year, even if it is from a safe distance.

While all I want is to give my mom a squeeze this weekend, I will do my best to remind her how amazing she is with thoughtful gifts that help support businesses I believe in. From sweet treats that I find online (see below) to the perfect bottle of wine, making floral arrangements with Gracie Carroll to jewelry from Toronto’s Hestia Jewels, there are many options to shop from and safely get to moms in your life. Take a look at my ideas and what I’m getting up to this weekend below via these posts!

✨ Hello Friends! ✨ This announcement means a lot to me and I would so appreciate a moment of your time to read about it. ? My first #MothersDay as a new mom is coming up and I couldn’t be more excited and honoured to have been asked to co-host a virtual flower arranging workshop with @rebloom_flowers on Mother’s Day weekend! ? If you’re in #Toronto and GTA, your ticket will include a contactless delivery of flowers ??? to use for creating your flower arrangement while you tune in from home! ? Not only do I think this is such a fun and amazing idea to help keep us connected in a creative and special way to celebrate #mamas right now, but I especially love that for every ticket sold, a special floral arrangement will be donated to #womenshelters in Toronto, Calgary and Vancouver ??? ReBLOOM’s #founder Kalynn Crump has had to quickly pivot her events-based business and I would love for you to join me in showing up to support this incredible Canadian #entrepreneur whose business, ReBLOOM, is Canada’s TOP floral recycler and composter ??? Tickets with flowers are $65 each and tickets w/o flowers are just $35 (perhaps for the mamas who happen to have blooming gardens right now!) ? Use the Eventbrite link in my bio to grab your tickets and please do share with anyone you think would into this too! TYSM!! ? PS swipe for a closer look at the type of floral delivery you can expect to receive before the webinar – taking place on both Saturday and Sunday that weekend! ? . . . . ? by @rawkavai in the @tonicblooms studio a few years ago ❤️ . . . #newmom #mothersday2020 #mothersday2020?? #giftideas #virtuallearning #socialdistancing #love #mothersdaygiftideas #rebloom #rebloomflowerrecylers #flowers? #shoplocal #locallove #supportlocal #flowerarranging #torontolife #ecoflorist #supportsmallbiz #smallbusinessowners

Specifically I am inspired by Hestia Jewels, who this year amid this all wanted to give back. Not only will they be gifting a number of exceptional mothers who are making a difference in our local community, they will also be donating 20% of any purchase to ERNESTINE’S Women’s Shelter.

This Mother’s Day, let’s support businesses that are making moms around the world feel special. And look forward to a time when we can all squeeze these moms tight again!

For more behind the scenes of this and other amazing brands I’m working with around the world, make sure to follow along with the #DoTheDaniel Instagram account. I’d love to share my adventures with you along for the ride!
