Mother’s Day is fast approaching! And we may not all be ready with Mother’s Day gifts for our amazing moms yet.

If you’re looking for a unique Mother’s Day gift idea this year, Raised80s created a gift experience like no other.

Raised80s is a female-owned Canadian company that supports other local, female-owned BIPOC companies. Their concept, “Unbox the Experience”, curates a custom virtual experience event-in-a-box. They deliver everything you need for the virtual event in a box to your door. Three Canadian women created this company in 2020, looking to bring people together in the middle of a pandemic – even if it’s through Zoom!

Their Mother’s Day Gift Box includes five carefully chosen products. These include a scented pebble and essential oil, a Turkish towel, energy bites, a face mask mist and a Mother’s Day notecard. And all these products are from Canadian female-owned businesses.


They have boxes for different types of events like family bonding, friend activities and team building exercises. Since they want to help people connect with each other, they curate events in different categories for a variety of options. Their four categories are food and drink, yoga and wellness, fun and games, and culture (supporting mental health initiatives). They also hold seminars


And if the Mother’s Day box is not for you, you can create your own custom event-in-a-box to suit your mother’s personal taste. Like a sommelier-led wine tasting with cheese and charcuterie? Or you can get both, because our mothers and all the strong women who raised us deserve it all!
