Irish mammies are just a species of their own. They really do everything for us, so come Mothers’ Day, it’s time we do something special for them.
From fragrant perfume to luxury hotel stays, here are ten gifts to get your Irish mother on Mothers’ Day.
Irish mothers are known for their kindly ways, wonderful stories, and good nature. For those of us who’ve grown up with an Irish mother, we sometimes forget just how lucky we are.
To say thanks for everything our mums have done for us, here are some gift ideas to treat your mammy this Mothers’ Day.
10. Jewellery – something special
Jewellery is the first entry on our list of gifts to get your Irish mother on Mother’s Day.
Whether you get her a clover charm for her bracelet, a Claddagh Ring, or a pretty necklace or pair of earrings, your mum is sure to be delighted with a new piece of jewellery.
9. A book by her favourite Irish author – for mum’s who love to read
If your mum likes reading, then why not get her a book by her favourite Irish author for Mother’s Day?
There are plenty to choose from, including Cecelia Ahern, Maeve Binchy, Colm Tóibín, Seamus Heaney, and Emma Donoghue, to name but a few.
8. A spa break – for a well-deserved day of relaxation
Treat your mum to a well-earned afternoon of relaxation by booking her a day at the spa.
She’ll be so grateful for the opportunity to use all the facilities and being made to feel like a queen for the day.
7. A hamper – the perfect gift
If you’re stuck for ideas, a hamper of local Irish goods and delicious produce is always a great idea.
Plus, if your purchase one in a cute wicker basket, she’s sure to find a great use for it in the future once all its contents are finished.
6. A delicious dinner – give her a night off cooking
Whether you treat her to a tasty dinner in her favourite restaurant or cook up a storm and allow her to relax on the sofa, treating your mum to a delicious dinner is a great idea to treat her this Mother’s Day.
5. A family photo – an Irish mum’s favourite
One of the best ideas for gifts to get your Irish Mother on Mother’s Day is a family photo.
If you come from a typical Irish family, you’ll know how hard it is to get everyone in one place at the same time. So, treat your mum to a family photo of all her kids this Mother’s Day. It will sit in pride of place in her living room – but be warned; she might cry.
4. New perfume – all mum’s love perfume
All mum’s love flowers and perfume, so to combine the two, we recommend this lovely Flowerbomb perfume from Victor & Rolf to really treat your mum this Mother’s Day.
This floral perfume has hints of Sambac jasmine, Centifolia rose, freesia, and Cattleya orchid. So, if your mum is known to spritz herself with a spray before leaving the house, a new perfume is a great gift idea.
3. Afternoon tea – the perfect present for mum
If there’s one thing Irish mum’s love, it’s afternoon tea. So, if you want to treat your mum to something special this Mother’s Day, then book her in for a luxurious afternoon tea.
Plus, the bonus with this one is that she might bring you with her so you can enjoy the scones, tea, and tiny sandwiches, too!
2. Irish art – brighten up your home
There are lots of talented Irish artists whose work shows off the beauty of the Emerald Isle. So, if your mum has a wall she’d like to fill, then why not treat her to some Irish art.
It’s a piece she’ll always treasure and something she can keep forever.
1. A stay in one of Ireland’s best hotels – the ultimate gift
For the ultimate option on our list of gifts to get your Irish mother on Mother’s Day, we recommend booking her a stay at one of Ireland’s best hotels. This is the perfect gift for mums who travel!
There are many luxury hotels all across the country, such as Adare Manor, the Lough Erne, and the Castlemartyr Resort, among others, so why not treat her to a stay at one of these top spots?
