Mother Love: A Gift Guide

Foodie Mom
Leonard Cohen once said, “Once you’ve seen Paris, there’s no going back to the farm.” Or Kitsilano for that matter. Give Mom a Gallic gift from Fabrics de France, like a bottle of wine wrapped in a Parisian tea towel, or a French tablecloth shrouding a good Tomme or Camembert from Les Amis du Fromage (on the same block). From $20. Fabrics de France, 1738 W. Second Ave., Vancouver, 604-737-0502,

Glamour Mom
And if you can’t take her to Normandy, get her a timeless pair of espadrilles by Le Pont St Michel in the colours of the French flag ($105 at Misch, 2960 Granville St., Vancouver, 604-731-1017,, and a wide brimmed hat from Goorin Bros., 1188 Hamilton St., Vancouver, 604-683-1895,

Remember, gifts you give mom may become yours one day, so choose wisely. Like this vintage-looking sterling silver frame from Birks ($395, pictured, 698 W.
