5 Great Mother’s Day Gift Ideas24/02/2014
by Kira Walton
On Mother’s day, all you want to do is give your Mum a hug. But if like many Irish children you can’t come home, you could send her a gift that tells her you love her: something she can look at, hold or remember every time she misses you.
Mother’s day 2014 is March 30th in Ireland. Personally we think every day should be Mother’s Day but unfortunately, it does only come once a year.
This year you can show your Mum that you haven’t forgotten about your Irish roots by sending her a gift direct from an Irish company. Luckily for you, we trawled the web for the best Irish gifts to send home this year. Here are our picks:
1. Voya Organic Seaweed Products, Co. Sligo
Is your Mum into organic natural beauty products? If so this might be an ideal gift for her. VOYA make luxurious organic beauty products from seaweed harvested off the wild Atlantic coast. Based in Co. Sligo VOYA also use exceptional ingredients including organic Aloe Vera gel, organic almond oil and organic coconut oil. We also have seaweed baths in Strandhill, Co. Sligo for some extra indulgence which she can enjoy with a friend. Seaweed is known for its healing properties and if your Mum is in need of a little TLC, we’ll take care of her. We recommend sending her the Body gift set or a voucher for the VOYA Seaweed Baths & Spa.
The Kilkenny Shop has an excellent variety of wonderful Irish gifts for all occasions. We recommend the Orla Kiely Olive Memo Block. Every time she writes in it, it will undoubtedly make her smile and think of you.
Like a lot of Irish Mums, ours love gardening and this is a lovely present to get if you really want something that will last her a long time. In our opinion, this is one of the best gardening websites in Ireland, providing lots of nice gift ideas for all budgets. We recommend getting your Mum a tree to plant in her garden so every time she looks out she is reminded of you.
4. The Cookware Company, Co. Cork
For that next big family meal that you are all back home for, why not give your Mum a Le Creuset casserole dish. Le Creuset make high-end luxury kitchen products with a lifetime guarantee so you know that every time you come home, your dinner will be extra special. This gift will be a lovely reminder of the good times shared as a family around the kitchen table. There are also many more gift ideas for kitchen ware and accessories on The Cookware Company’s website for every budget.
5. The VOYA facial
VOYA organic seaweed products are used in award-winning spas all over Ireland and Europe. In a previous post we spoke about how VOYA aims to make every spa experience
count and will leave long lasting memories that stay with the client. Women love facials and we bet your Mum is no different. Treat her to a professional facial using luxury natural and organic products.
To really get in Mum’s good booky, book a spa facial at one of VOYA’s award-winning spas: The White Horses Spa at Doonbeg Lodge, Co. Clare or the Well Spa at the Cliff House Hotel, Ardmore, Co. Waterford.
Whichever gift you choose to give your Mum this Mother’s Day, make it thoughtful and extra special.
Happy mother’s day to all the wonderful Irish Mum’s out there!
