Eeeppppp guys … or should I say, MAMAS!! … I’m seriously squirming with excitement over what I’m about to tell you… but before I go on and tell you what I’m giving away to one lucky NEW mama today, I want to give you a little back story as to WHY I’m doing this VERY special giveaway.

As most of you know, I’m on a little hiatus from Love It Or List It Vancouver and while I won’t be traveling back and fourth as much as I used to, Justin and I have decided to let go of our little laneway house in Vancouver.  Soooo … some of you may remember the Vancouver Home Tour blog that I shared a few months back and we featured Leo’s nursery in that same reveal, (if you missed it, here’s the link!), anyways, now that we will only have our Kelowna home,  we didn’t have the need to keep all of the beautiful nursery items from Leo’s Vancouver nursery (do you see where I’m going with this?) … and we’ve been so so blessed with soooo many gifts for Leo that we really want to pay it forward to a deserving new mama.

So, without further adieu,  Justin and I would LOVE to gift a “Mamma to Be”  who is in need …. LEO’s NURSERY, most of the accessories and we are going shopping to also supply all the basics and necessities to get the new babe set up!!!

The only the catch is, this Mama HAS to be located in Vancouver or the Greater Vancouver Area!! As I type this I know for SURE some of you are shaking your fist at your computer right now, so let me explain. The items are already IN Vancouver and I’ve reached out to an awesome local delivery company, City Errands, and they’re generously going to move the items from my place to the lucky mama’s place, so, for logistics sake, it has to stay within the same city.

So here’s how it works, I would LOVE to hear from YOU! If you know of a deserving new mother or mama-to-be that could really benefit from these items I want to hear from you!!

  • Provide the Mother’s contact information (Name, email or phone number)
  • Tell us WHY you think they could use these items!
  • Remember: They MUST live in Vancouver, BC

Alright, so now you’re probably thinking, “I know a mother in need, and YES, she lives in Vancouver, so, what are the items she would get if she wins?” Well, let me tell you! This mama in need will get the following items delivered to her doorstep:

What the Mother’s Day package includes:

  • Diapers
  • Wipes
  • Gender neutral clothes (Newborn and 0-3)

    Jillian this is such a wonderful idea! I sure wish I lived in Vancouver haha!
    I religiously watch Love It or List It Vancouver and think thag your stule is absolutely stunning.

      Keep it up girl, you rock.

  • Oh that is so sweet of you!! I wish I wasn’t all the way in Louisiana, I am due in 6 weeks!!
    Whoever wins this prize is lucky!

  • So thoughtful and generous of you !! Will you be doing Love it or list it again at some point as it sounds like you are kind of done ?????

  • That’s amazing, what a great way to pay it forward with kindness! You guys have such big hearts! I know a lot of mamas who truly helped me out by giving us so much baby stuff! I really appreciated it! Your going to make someone’s whole year!!

  • You are an amazing woman!

  • Such a lovely idea! Jillian, you’re such a kind soul! Love all that you do!

  • What a lovely idea! Jillian, you are such a kind soul! Love all that you do!

    This is pretty amazing! YOU’RE pretty amazing Jillian! This blog made my heart SO happy to know that a beautiful new mama who may be facing hardship will have some luck thrown their way. I’m becoming a new mama myself (40 weeks and anxiously waiting ahh!) and I’ve learned first hand recently how stressful (financially, emotionally, and physically!) it is to prepare for a new babe. Personally I’m very lucky and thankful to have a stable career with a fantastic support group consiting of my man, family and friends. Therefore, I won’t be entering the contest but I definitely want to spread the word! I’ve shared your blog on a Facebook mommy group of over 3000 mama’s in the Vancouver/Lower Mainland. Good luck mama’s! 🙂

  • Such awesome thing you are doing?? Does Coquitlam count? It’s close and I have a momma in mind:)

  • Roberta  • 

    Good for you, Jillian, so kind! I’m a grandmother of 3 lovely grandchildren, one of whom is barely 6 weeks old. I truly hope the person who wins this is a mother in need. Bless you & your adorable family.

  • Clara Schulte  • 

    Love this! But, where will you stay when start love it or list again or need to stay in Vancouver for any other reason?

  • Clara Schulte  • 

    Love this! But, where will you stay when Love It or List it starts again or you need to stay in Vancouver for any other reason? When is the hiatus over?

  • Shavonne Whelan  • 

    Jill & Justin this is so sweet of you! I’m a mother of two little girls and live in Newfoundland but I just wanted to say your paying it forward is absolutely amazing! Whoever gets this will be one lucky (and very grateful!) Mama! Xx

    • Michelle Durieux  • 

      Jillian, this is so kind of you! I would love to enter for my beautiful sister-in-law who is expecting twins! Does New Westminster count as the greater Vancouver area? Thank you for all that you do to give back.

    • I agree that this is an amazing gesture for you to share with a new mom to be…but now the question is, does this mean no more babies for you guys if you’re gifting all of your baby items away?

  • I wish the Vancouver part wasn’t necessary! My sister is expecting a little boy next month and could really use some of these amazing gifts! However, I know someone amazing mom-to-be will ADORE this precious gift so much, you are such a kind soul for doing this!

    I definitely agree with Alexandria, keep doing what you’re doing! xoxo

  • This is such a heart warming, wonderful act of kindness that you are doing for another Mama. I also commute back and forth to Vancouver from Kelowna with my little babe (born 1 week after Leo) and my toddler and I feel your pain with how much work that is. Now that you’re selling your van place, where will you stay once love it or list it goes back into filming? Or for nights in Vancouver at Eric church haha.
    Take Care team Jillian and great work on being kind to others (as Ellen would say!)

  • Where are the pink glasses frames from? Also, very generous of you. Love mama’s helping mama’s.

  • Hi Jillian

    Could you please tell us what colour you used for the inside of your new front doors?

    So lovely.

  • Jillian…..after watching your insta-story, I now know where you get your contagious laugh, your wit, and your caring and giving heart. Obviously it runs in your family through your Grannie! ?
    Although I’m not a Mama to a human, I am one of a 12 year old, rescued fur baby, who fills my heart with joy. Good luck and bless you with your give-away……just another example of how kind you are. I hope your Mothers Day is filled with lots of love, fun and laughter….(oh yeah, maybe a glass of wine or two?). Have a great weekend!

  • I am an expecting mama! I am not in need nor do I live in Vancouver but this just made my heart melt! It brings tears to my eyes (which happens all the time now that I am pregnant!! LOL) to know that someone in need will receive all of this wonderful stuff.
    You are the best Jilly!!!

  • What a lovely thing to do. I’m sure the Mama who receives this will be thrilled.

  • Rebecca Dean  • 

    Does it have to be Vancouver or can it be somewhere close to Vancouver?

  • Victoria  • 

    Sweet, sweet Jillian, you are so precious to do such a kind thing for a sweet mom. You know their heart will just be filled with joy!!!!! I am a 62 year old grandmother and I think you are adorable and precious!!! Enjoy your new home with your precious little family!!!!! I looked at your wallpapers and I am in love!!! I am going to get the beautiful panel paper and maybe do one wall in Leo’s dots!!!??????

  • Melissa  • 

    That is the sweetest idea! I am sure a mom in need will be so grateful to be gifted all of these items. Very thoughtful of you!

    Hi Jillian
    I work with a young lady 24 who is expecting her first baby. Her boyfriend is not working at this time, and lives in Chilliwack. Every weekend she drives from Coquitlam to Chilliwack to pick him up so that they can spend the weekend together. She works full time and is barely making ends meet. I see her everyday at her job treat our patients with such care and kindness , i would love to pay it forward to her because she deserves to have something good happen to her. I’m so glad i read your website this morning I honestly was thinking about how i could help her. I really hope you can help !!!!!!

  • Brenda Cremer  • 

    Ah Jillian, this is so you! Happy 1st Mother’s Day!
