Buying something for Mom can be fairly difficult, since our instincts usually tell us she really needs one more silk scarf. For the kids who can’t shake this habit, we’ve found some good neckwear, but scouring some of Toronto’s shopping ’hoods, we also took stock of other great picks for cool and conservative moms alike (unsurprisingly, the tourist-heavy Queen Street West produced several perfect options). We think our guide to the top 20 Mother’s Day gifts will inspire an end to mom jeans, dead-after-a-day flowers and that pen we thought she’d use, but she just threw out (we remember). See our choices in a gallery below.
