Choosing the perfect Irish gift for Mother’s Day

Mother’s across the globe will be honoured and celebrated on the annual day specially set aside as a mark of appreciation for the work and support they have given all of us through the years. Mothers Day is celebrated in many different ways as well as on different days across over the world, for instance in the UK and Ireland Mother’s Day will be celebrated on Sunday, 15th March. The day itself is provides family members with the the opportunity to express thanks and gratitude with all manner of traditional gifts and specially planned family excursions.

On Mother’s Day there are many ways to show appreciation and thanks to your mum. Consider treating her to a day in a luxury Spa hotel where she’ll be pampered and can relax while the rest of the family tend to the household chores. Alternatively, surprise her with well earned breakfast in bed followed by homemade lunch or a baked treat. For something a little different you could make the day extra special by taking the whole family out for a meal or, perhaps, just lunch with you and your mum at her favourite restaurant or hotel.

You could also go along traditional lines and get a typical mothers day gift. As Mother’s Day approaches, most retailers and online stores cater for the day with a range of traditional Irish gifts and celtic jewelry that are sure to delight the lucky recipient. The traditional Mother’s Day gift list is endless ranging from luxury Belgian chocolates, freshly baked cakes and local confectionery (careful not to have a negative impact on Lenten vows) to a carefully selected bunch of flowers and homemade gifts.

The traditional Mother’s Day gift may not appeal to everyone , so why not surprise her with a thoughtful personalized Irish gift with a wide range of options and Irish gifts to choose from. If you do decide to go with a more personal and non traditional Mother’s Day gift but are stuck for ideas, it is wise to start by considering the person behind the title. She may be your mum but behind the role of mother remember she is an individual with her own likes and dislikes. So if choosing a novelty Irish gifts be sure to take your time and search for something that you know she’ll like and appreciate.

When choosing a gift for your mother, be sure to take into account her personal characteristics, interests and personality. Consider her passions and hobbies, for instance,  does she love to cook, is she a keen gardener, or maybe she’s a beauty connoisseur or fashionista? Perhaps she is more of an avid reader, interested in the arts and crafts? Is she selfless and always thinking of others and so is deserving of a short hotel break or luxury Spa treatment?

For the fashionista, why not consider specific items of clothing or fashion accessories such as a stylish scarf, handbag or wrap in a style you know she will cherish. Alternatively, if she is a lover of celtic jewelry then why not surprise her with a simple yet stylish piece of jewelry such as a bead or an Irish charm bracelet, shamrock jewelry, celtic earrings or a stunning celtic pendant. Also consider gifts that give her opportunity to unwind and pamper herself, rejuvenating beauty gifts, bath salts and gels, favourite fragrances, scented candles, the best in skincare and luxury face cream, high quality make-up brands etc. If you’re feeling particularly generous then why not consider ornate Waterford Crystal gifts such as a Waterford Crystal vase or a stylish crystal ighting feature.

Whatever form of Mother’s Day gift you decide to choose, either along traditional lines or, perhaps a more personalized gift, remember to use the day to give thanks and show appreciation to your mother in whatever way you can on Mother’s Day.
