Gift Ideas for Mother’s Day (Not a box of chocolates in sight!)

Are you still waiting to find that perfect gift? Just haven’t gotten around to it yet? Well fear not! Here’s some great finds 🙂

After all…


First up here’s a cute notebook from Dunnes Stores for €6. It’s from the Carolyn Donnelly Collection and is sure to impress any stationery fan.


For the flower lover, this beautiful Hydrangea is only €9.99, available from Aldi. It also comes in a pretty gift bag.


I love this idea! It’s The Little Bag For Mum. The bag contains items which represent how you feel about your Mother. Such as “a BUTTERFLY because you help me fly high and reach my potential”. Aww 🙂 You can get it from Leelu on  Not On The High Street €7.17

For all those cups of tea she makes you, you could at least give her a cool teapot. Although on Mothering Sunday maybe you should stick the kettle on. Maybe. Available from Avoca for €25.95.


For the Mammy who loves some pampering, check out Apothecary 19. All the face and body creams/oils are prescription and tailored to the client’s skin. All the products are made with natural ingredients and essential oils and are not tested on animals. Wrinkles! What wrinkles?!


This a really cute idea. For all those mushy things you can’t bring yourself to say, write them down and your Mam can read them while your sprinting out the door 😉 You can get it from M&S for €4.75.


If you want to treat your Mammy to some quality time, whisk her off for Afternoon Tea to The Merrion. Prices from €39 per person


And if you’re going down the handmade card route. Please use apostrophes correctly! 😉


Happy Mother’s Day!
