There’s still time to treat your mam to a beautiful gift from an Irish biz.

Amidst the rush of Pancake Tuesday, Paddy’s Day and the mammoth bank holiday weekend, you’d very nearly forget it was Mother’s Day this month too. You would not, however, be forgiven for doing so.

If you’re still on the hunt for the perfect gift for the main lady in your life, we’ve got you covered with 7 great suggestions from small businesses. Whatever she’s into, you’ll hopefully find something here that ticks the box.

Gift kit from Bodhi Blends

Bodhi Blends is a beautiful online shop of plant based balms, sprays and lotions. The packaging is gorgeous and you can choose between a curated gift box or one you put together yourself. I’d recommend the mint crisp lip balm – it’s as delicious as it sounds.

Biscuit Kit from Pompous Pantry

The biscuit kit queen is at it again with a selection of delicious Mother’s Day gifts you can decorate together – for mams with a creative streak. And a sweet tooth, obviously.

Build your own gift from Wine Lab

If your mam’s a fan of an aul charcuterie board, you can customise one for her via Winelab – complete with a hand written note and sweet card designed by Conor Merriman.

Mother’s Day cocktails from Irish Craft Cocktails

There’s always time for a cocktail, especially a hand crafted one with a cute message for mum/mommie/mam on the front. Available to order as a bundle or individually from the Irish Craft Cocktail WEBSITE.

Build A Hamper at Shell’s Cafe

Candles, crockery, chocolate – you can include them all in a hamper from Shell’s Cafe in Sligo. Either build your own or let the Shell’s team take care of it for you – just send some ideas/preferences in the box as you’re checking out and they’ll do the rest! Get ordering HERE.

Mother’s Day Candle from D8 Design

If the past two years have taught us anything, it’s that there’s no greater gift than a ~Good Candle~. It’s something D8 Design excel in – their weekly drops sold out in minutes over lockdown. Their customisable candles are 100% soy, 100% handmade, and come with an option for you to add your own personal message.

The Wine Opener

The brainchild of Irish mother-and-daughter duo Mary and Sophie Leahy, the Wine Opener was designed specifically for “Irish mammies who just want a glass of wine without battling with a corkscrew”. We all know one. The Wine Opener comes in a gift box with charging cable and foil cutter, and is designed to fit all traditional wine bottles – just pop it on top of the bottle and press the button to watch the cork rise out within seconds.
