COVID 19 Mother's Day - Shopping Local - Staying Safe

I was so surprised and pleased to have two early Mother's Day gifts delivered right to my door! Both were ordered online via Toronto, from local businesses so we had contact numbers and notification from both, about delivery times and procedures. Very efficient, safe and well wrapped, for easy cleaning and opening. Flowers by Michael 1378 Georgia Street, Vancouver, are just a beautiful variety and a brilliant splash of colour on these rainy days. You can read the amazing reviews on Yelp here as well. Michael always includes a second bonus gift, so really two for one. I have been lucky enough to have had bouquets delivered before by him and have enjoyed long lasting, gorgeous displays! Buy local, buy Flowers by Michael!

A big bag of treats contained all of the ingredients for the best charcouterie, ever! This was a Foodie Delivery by Vancouver Foodie Tours, Granville Island. During COVID 19, the tours are cancelled so this is a great way to bring the Granville Island Public Market Merchants to your door. They have a selection of packaged gifts and you can also purchase individual items which is what I received. Whole Wheat Sour Dough from A Bread Affair, Plain Winnipeg Cream Cheese from Siegel's Bagel, Cave Aged Gruyere Swiss from Benton Brothers Cheese Co., Oyama Sausage Company's Finocchiona Salami, traditional German Style Schwarzwalder Schinken Ham, and Salted Caramel Chocolates from Chocolatas, yum! You select from an extensive menu and know that you are buying best by buying local. I didn't know that Michelle, Founder of Vancouver Foodie Tours, has been in business for over ten years! She has adapted during COVID 19 by bringing The Granville Island Market Place to your door! More at Special thanks to foodie writer Dee who shared this idea on instagram first and who sparked the idea for this Mother's Day gift!

Mother's Day can happen even during COVID 19!

Everything together for happy hour!

While we can't get together in person this year, we are still celebrating 
virtually and with local businesses!
