6 virtual gift experiences for Mother’s Day 2021

Design a beautiful floral arrangement

Virtual flower arranging classes are a popular Mother’s Day gift idea for budding floral designers. During hands-on guided classes, floral fans will learn how to style their own beautiful arrangements using lush foliage and seasonal blooms. Search for a local florist in your neighbourhood offering virtual do-it-yourself classes or register for a floral design workshop with Bloom School and choose from a selection of on-demand video tutorials – topics cover tabletop arrangements, bridal bouquets, and even advanced hanging installation pieces.

Get sweaty

If your mama is more into burpees than brunch, sign her up for a new fitness platform. It’s a great Mother’s Day virtual idea that will take her workout routine to the next level. From high-intensity cardio to strength training to low-impact yoga, you’ll find an online program to suit every type of skill level. Barreworks, Elle on Demand, and Peloton are just a few of the many at-home exercise platforms in Canada that offer monthly membership options for Moms who like to work up a sweat.

Perfect the art of pasta making

If Mom misses the thrill of international travel, send her on a virtual European getaway this Mother’s Day with Nonna Live, an immersive cooking experience hosted live from Italy by 84-year-old Nonna Nerina. Participants will learn how to make homemade pasta shapes and Nonna’s traditional family recipes like pesto gnocchi, carbonara, and fettuccine with ragù. Ingredient lists are provided ahead of time so that you can pick up all the necessary culinary supplies at your local supermarket.
