Whether you’re planning to spend some quality time with mom this Mother’s Day or looking for the perfect gift, there’s no better place to make a beeline for than Vancouver’s South Granville neighbourhood. From shopping to dining to entertainment, the district is bursting with fun and finds to celebrate the number 1 lady in your life. —Vita Daily

dining. Mom always told you not to miss the most important meal of the day, so kick off yours with coffee and a baked good at one of the many cafés that line South Granville Street, including Small Victory Bakery, Bump n Grind Café, Trees Organic Coffee and Roasting House, Beaucoup Bakery and Goodge Place. Feel like more fuel is needed? Grab at healthy smoothie at Heirloom Juice Co., or stroll over to its sister restaurant, Heirloom, for a plant-based lunch. Other winning noon-time eateries to visit with mom are West Restaurant, Stable House Bistro, Vij’s Rangoli and Fiore, or share a delicious Lebanese platter at Jamjar. Finally, Mother’s Day dinner is a cinch on South Granville—especially when combined with a show at the Arts Club. Receive a 15 per cent discount on food when you present your same-day theatre ticket at Bin 4 Burger Lounge, Caffe Barney, the Marquis Grill, Ouisi Bistro and The Rise Eatery. Top off the perfect Mother’s Day with an in-house-made indulgence at Cheesecake Etc. or a cocktail (or two) at any of the area’s late-night happy hour joints.

doing. There’s a reason spa packages are such a popular Mother’s Day gift: for all mom does, she deserves it! Treat your mama with a mani/pedi at Adorn Nail & Spa, followed by hair service at Blo, Civello Salons, Selfology spa, Suki’s or Salon 14—there are so many ways to make mom feel ravishing, rested and loved along South Granville, including the latest and greatest in beauty and skin-care gifting at Deciem, L’Occitane and the Shoppers Drug Mart beautyBOUTIQUE. Once she’s all dolled up, head to the Stanley Industrial Alliance Stage to take in a show (if you can hold off until just after Mother’s Day, MATILDA the Musical begins on May 16th and runs until July 14th, 2019).

gifting. Whether you’re able to spend the day with mom or not , South Granville retailers are well stocked to ensure you find the perfect gift—no matter what your momma may be into. For the foodie mom, gifts for the home chef abound at Williams Sonoma, Ming Wo and Le Creuset. For the Martha Stewart type, Anthropologie, Pottery Barn, West Elm, Structube and Urban Barn are all havens for home décor (and many have pro designers on staff to help you make just the right choice). For fashionista mamas, we love the looks at Black Goat Cashmere, Eileen Fisher, Max Mara, Hill’s Dry Goods and The Latest Scoop (tip: secretly check mom’s labels to find out her size before you go). There’s also lovely sleepwear and lingerie at Diane’s Lingerie, Diva lingerie and La Vie en Rose (great places to send dad to, if he’s also looking for a gift) and, for new moms who’d get a bigger kick out of receiving something for their babe, find the sweetest outfits for kids at Igloo Baby, Lussobaby, Bonpoint, Adore and Pottery Barn Kids.
