When you ask Mom, “What would you like for Mother’s Day?” many will respond with “a nap!” Isn’t that the truth?! In all honesty, there are many gift ideas for mom and I am a large fan of the stepping outside of the spa trip. The Gift Guide we created with Our Happy Place gave many amazing gift ideas but one I couldn’t resist sharing was this pretty and oh so delicious Gift Box put together by the loveliest local ladies Ever Red Fresh Designs and The Cake Mama. What’s, even more, is that this truly is a gift that keeps giving. Part of the proceeds will be going to proceeds being donated to Cause We Care Foundation.
Cause We Care Foundation is an amazing local organization that supports single mothers. Founded in Vancouver to assist local single mothers and their children in need. Since 2007 and in concert with our volunteer base and generous donors, we assist families in need in the Metro Vancouver area through a variety of outreach and funding initiatives.
What do they do you ask? They roll up our sleeves and collect and distribute supplies, fill backpacks, and provide emergency funding to women and kids in desperate situations. They’ve helped fund new affordable and supportive housing in Vancouver and after school programs for kids in need. To date, Cause We Care Foundation has distributed over 4100 food hampers at Christmas, over 1100 backpacks in September, and over 2500 care packages at Mother’s Day to families in need.
Each gift box will contain 6 sugar cookies hand decorated by Izabela (The Cake Mama) and a floral crown or arrangement created by Nicole of Ever Red Fresh Designs. These gift boxes are a lovely idea if you’re looking for something handmade with the added bonus of supporting local businesses and giving back to a good cause through your gifting. See below for more info and photos of what you’ll find in these gift boxes!
