Making Mom's Day From A Distance 🤗💗

April 17, 2021

It’s hard to believe Mothers Day is JUST around the corner! This year’s going to be another ‘weird one’. We get it - with physical distancing in mind, video calls just don’t replace a real hug for Mom or Grandma. We are 100% here for you! Think virtual hug instead: a thoughtful Mother’s Day Gift Box with a charming Canadian card that says “I love you, Mom – and I’m thinking about you.” We're ready to deliver Canadian made gifts to Mom, and we'll even write the card.

Check our curated Mothers Day Gift and Card Collections – including shipping and local delivery options for thousands of Canadian-made products, crafted with love by local makers.


Does your Mom live in Ottawa? We understand the importance of staying home to stop the spread – and staying healthy remains our top priority. In addition to Local Pickup at our store front door, we’re offering Local Delivery within Ottawa for just $7.95 twice weekly - from Kanata to Orleans! You can even request Same Day Delivery at the checkout.

We will bring your hand-picked gift, or a curated Gift Box, right to Mom's house! Add the cherry on top; purchase any Greeting Card, and type a note into your cart before checkout (max 200 characters); we'll handwrite the card to deliver with your gift! This ought to make Mum smile, and make her a little misty eyed too. 


Find curated pre-packed Gift Box options for all Moms, from early motherhood to empty nesters! All of our SEND LOVE gift boxes include a card that we will write with your provided note, with shipping across Canada or local delivery in Ottawa! They are assembled with love, tied with a bow and ribbon.


Want to spoil Mom beyond the curated Gift Box options? You can do that too! Build your own Custom Gift Box - think of what she needs these days besides another set of PJ's to work from home in! (And who doesn’t?!)  Send her pure indulgences, locally made products like luxurious handmade soaps and soy eco friendly candles crafted with soothing essential oils, decadent handmade pure chocolates, specialty coffees, bath bombs and soaks, at-home DIY Kits, cozy wool blankets and so much more!….Remind her that she doesn’t have to share any of it! The upside of distancing?

Does your fabulous Granny absolutely love heavenly teas? Would she be thrilled to find eco-conscious beeswax food wrap in a gift box delivered to her front door? If you know what Mum and Grandma love best, we invite you to create your own Gift Box for shipping or delivery within Ottawa.


There’s no better time to shop local than now: it’s a win-win to treat your Mothers and Grandmothers to a gift from Maker House. By doing this - you’ll be supporting 200+ Canadian makers. Take comfort in knowing that a portion of the proceeds from every purchase supports non-profits and community organizations through our #CraftChange program, with over $100,000 donated since we started as a 'Pop Up Shop' five years ago. We want to sincerely thank you for all of your continued support, Ottawa!  

Voila… Mother’s Day shopping – DONE. Easy button, even while working from home! Stay safe, stay home and stay connected with those you love.

Happy Mothers Day to all you amazing Mama's out there. :-)
