A bouquet of flowers is always lovely, but there is no harm in sprinkling a little extra thought into how you spend your Mother’s Day.

It’s the perfect opportunity to show any mother in your life how much you really care and prioritize making memories together. Whether it’s your sister, aunt, or grandma, spending quality time can include many activities.

Here are some of the best ways to spend Mother’s Day around Vancouver.

Pilates class


Core Community

Heading to a Pilates class with Mom is a fun way to spend some quality time together and is inclusive to all athletic abilities. Core Community in Kitsilano is doing a special promo to celebrate Mother’s Day by offering 50% off a class for you to bring your mother or motherly figure in your life. They are also adding additional afternoon classes!

Bacchus Restaurant

Known for its European influence and elegant interior, Bacchus Restaurant in the Wedgewood Hotel & Spa is putting on a beautiful Mother’s Day Brunch.

Comedy Night
