Assorted flower bouquets, $11.99 to $21.99

You can never go wrong with the tried-and-true gift of flowers. Costco offers a few levels to match any budget, from a Grower’s Bunch of pink carnations (symbolizing a mother’s undying love) to a bouquet of 24 roses that are Rainforest Alliance Certified (which ensures they have been grown on farms and harvested from forests with sustainable practices).

Cookbooks, fiction and non-fiction, assorted prices

Whether your mother figure prefers bestsellers (Michelle Obama’s 2018 memoir, Becoming, perhaps?) or cookbooks (such as Moncton-born food blogger Angela Liddon’s Oh She Glows Every Day), Costco offers tons of titles with discounted prices. Spotted recently: Canadian songstress Jann Arden’s heartbreaking-but-inspirational Feeding My Mother, about becoming her mom’s caregiver when she was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.
