Mom Time at Manulife Centre

Looking for the perfect way to honour your mother? How about some quality time with her? Better yet, how about some quality time with her at Bay and Bloor? Better yet still, how about some quality time with her 51 floors above Bay and Bloor?


Take her to the moon (almost)

Ride the back elevator up to The One Eighty for a special Mother’s Day brunch that includes complementary pink prosecco and rosé for the ladies of the hour, in addition to the most breathtaking view of the city. Brunch is being served from 11AM to 4PM this Sunday, but it’s filling up quickly so reserve your tickets.


Let yourselves be pampered  

You can smell the Haartek Salon before you see it. And you can hear people talk about how relaxed they are as they leave. Have your skin exfoliated, your body massaged and your fingers and toes expertly gel polished.

Feeling like lavishing a bit more love? Book facials at GRATiAE. Sourced from a hidden hot spring in The Sea of Galilee on Israel’s northeast border, their legendary minerals have been opening and rejuvenating pores since Roman times. Treat yourselves with a two-for-one Mother’s Day facial special.


Talk over a book and a coffee

Stop by Indigo for a drink in the Starbucks Café, then walk the stacks to check out some of the hottest rising reads including:

Mom & Me & Mom by Maya Angelou

A moving memoir about two women, and the strength and preciousness of a mother-daughter bond. With Angelou’s trademark good humour and fierce optimism, this book is everything you want in a feel-good read. Perfect for a post-Mother’s Day book club!

Why a Son Needs a Mom: 100 Reasons by Gregory E. Lang

Show your appreciation for your mom with this classic book full of true-to-life moments you can reflect on together. A beautiful gift to show her how a mom’s love is the constant compass her son needs to be a great man.

Just Grandma and Me by Mercer Meyer

And, if there are grandkids in the picture, this is a definite favourite you and your mom can pick out just for her and the little one. Funny, heartwarming and celebratory of the special bond between a child and their grandmother. Plus, it’s a charming gift idea that promises even more memory-making for grandma.


For the last minute decision makers, a quick reminder that Indigo’s running a promotion right now where you have a chance to win your entire purchase if you pick up a greeting card AND a super cute perfect-for-summer tote for $14.50 when you spend $40 or more.

And, as always, you’ll get two hours of FREE PARKING when you spend $25 or more at Manulife Centre, which, in between sipping rosé and perusing the latest must-reads, shouldn’t be too hard.


Happy Mother’s Day!
