Got a gift sorted?
Sunday, March 22nd is Mother’s Day and if you haven’t found something special to give to your favourite mum, now is the time to get it wrapped up.
Of course, it’s the thought that counts (that’s why every mum treasures that pasta necklace you made her in junior infants) but if you fancy spoiling her with a thoughtful pressie this year, we’ve got you covered.
Here are six lovely gifts that will do the trick:
1. Smart Book Light
A gorgeous choice for a bookworm, this Mini Smart Book Light masquerades a pink notebook, but when opened it transforms into a beautiful sculptural light.
Buy it: €39.95, order it from Meadows & Byrne, Blarney Woollen Mills
2. Irish ‘Mother’ and ‘Grandmother’ cards
So pretty they could be framed and hung on the wall, these simple and elegant Irish Mother’s Day cards are blank inside for you to add your own personal message.
Buy it: €3.95 each, Under the Willow at Reuzi
3. Pear & Freesia Limited Edition Mother’s Day Candle
Crafted in Cork and inspired by the landscape of our coastline, this gorgeous candle captures the memories of pear orchards in spring bloom. A fresh, fruity scent with delicate floral notes of magnolia, orchid and rose followed by a base of musk, amber and patchouli. Each candle burns for up to 50 hours too.
Buy it: €24.95, Somas
4. Baby’s Bum Facial Cleanser
Feeling broody for a gentle cleanse that brightens and tones the skin? This little bar is a moisturising blend of Fair Trade organic cocoa butter, shea butter, extra virgin coconut oil, tagetes oil, which is renowned for its antimicrobial and antioxidant properties, and tangerine oil, which helps your skin to glow.
Buy it: €10, Lush, Oliver Plunkett Street
5. Organic Pearl Open Hoop Earrings
These gorgeous open hoop earrings are adorned with organic pearl pendants and gold-toned studs. The best bit? If you buy them for your mum you can borrow them for special occasions.

6. Clarins Body Partner Stretch Mark Expert
A treat for mums-to-be, Clarins Body Partner helps the skin to better withstand natural stretching on the stomach, breasts, thighs and hips during pregnancy. The secret is organic green banana extract and asiaticoside from centella asiatica, which strengthen the collagen and elastin fibres that give the skin its firmness.
