Ten years ago you couldn’t find macarons hardly anywhere in the lower mainland. I don’t remember seeing them at any bakeries or cafes that I would visit, but in the last several years many macaron shops have opened. Now there are dozens of places in BC that offer macarons, even big grocery chains and other specialty grocery stores that have also started offering them.
Macarons are a great treat if you are looking for something unique in taste or to celebrate a special occasion. You can get a box of macarons to gift to someone and this is a great gift idea for any occasion and can be given to just about anyone. Who doesn’t love some good cookies?

Even better is when you are looking to gift them to someone else. You can share the love of macarons and give someone a little something special for Mother’s Day or some other occasion.

Mother’s Day is coming up and then Father’s Day after that so why not gift some macarons for the occasion? Get a box of 6 or more, there are a variety of packages depending on what cafe you go to find macarons. Sometimes you can find larger macaron boxes of 24 or more, and this allows you to gift several different flavor options which boosts chances of including one or many that they will really like.
Whether spring, summer, Christmas, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, birthday, graduation, doesn’t matter, macarons are a good gift ; unless they don’t like sweet treats. Even better is when you get yourself an occasional gift and get a little something to go with your coffee or tea, that gives you one more reason to enjoy the day.
