Stuck for a Mother’s Day gift? Don't worry, we've got you covered.
This Sunday is the perfect time to spoil the number one woman in your life and while you might think you’re cutting it a little fine at this stage, our last minute Mother’s Day gift guide is sure to help you find the perfect present. Check it out below.
€27.96 from Arnotts
This water bottle is super glam, but very functional; it will keep your beverages hot for 12 hours and cold for 24 hours. Your mum will definitely love the gorgeous design and you'll get bonus points for being so environmentally friendly. Get it here.
€3.49 from Aldi
Drinking tea out of a good mug is one of life's simple pleasures. While it might seem like a pretty obvious gift idea, we think this mug is a winner thanks to its gorgeous design and stellar pun. Get it from Aldi stores nationwide.
€75 from Brown Thomas
If your mum loves tea, this gift basket will go down a treat. Packed and ready for an afternoon picnic, this basket contains a selection of the brand's teas, preserves, marmalades and teatime crockery. If the weather stays this nice, you might even be able to take your mum out for a picnic this weekend, instead of holding off for the summer, so keep your fingers crossed. Get this tea basket at Brown Thomas.
€24 from Carraig Donn
Another gift for your tea-loving mother, this Rosa Belle teapot is absolutely gorgeous. Decorated with a flower pattern and finished with gold trim, it will go very well with the above hamper so maybe get both if you're trying to impress! Find this teapot at Carraig Donn.
€150 from Fallon & Byrne
If your mum is a serious foodie like us, then she'll love this selection of delicious Irish treats from Fallon & Byrne. With two hampers on offer (one perishable version that can only be delivered in Dublin and one non-perishable version that can be delivered nationwide), you can pick your favourite and get it delivered straight to your mum's door, making it a great present if you can't get home for Mother's Day. Order your hamper by emailing [email protected]
Cook a Mother's Day Brunch
An old classic, this option is always a winner on Mother's Day. We have a great selection of brunch recipes on the site for you to whip up on Sunday, as well as baking and dessert options that are sure to impress your mum. For a final touch, serve up your spread with this special Mother's Day sourdough loaf (€3 from Marks & Spencer) to truly impress your mum.
€8.75 from Imbibe Coffee
Maybe the above gifts weren't your mum's cup of tea, so why not try coffee? Kaleidoscope is one of our favourite coffees from Imbibe, but the best part about coffee from this roastery is that 1% of their turnover goes straight to Women's Aid, so you'll know you're doing some good with this gift. Click here to buy the coffee online from Imbibe or to find where its stocked near you.
Cookery Class for Two
Realistically, the gift your mum will be most happy with is definitely the opportunity to spend time with you. A cookery class is a great way to spend some time together while learning a new skill, so it's a win-win for everyone. Ballymaloe Cookery School has a great selection of short and one day classes on their site, as do The Triggerfish Cook Shop and Aniar.
€169 from FoodMarble
This gift is a little different, but if your mum is into nutrition then she'll definitely like this gift! FoodMarble is a Dublin-based company that is offering the world's first pocket-sized breath tester that uses leading digestive science to help people identify foods that cause them digestive issues, and to improve their overall wellbeing.
The FoodMarble device is available to purchase online for €169 at foodmarble.com. To celebrate Mother’s Day and Nutrition Month, FoodMarble is offering a 10% discount from Sunday, 24 March until Sunday, 7 April 2019. To avail of this offer, use the code ‘MD2019’ at the checkout on foodmarble.com.
Book a Weekend Away
If you can't treat your mum on Mother's Day, when can you? There are lots of great hotels around Ireland where you could bring your mum for a night away or if you're looking for a good dealt, the McKenna's Guide and Groupon have some great offers.
