Mother’s Day is an important day if you’re a Mammy or have a Mammy and/or Nanny. But let’s not forget those who have lost their Mams. The day is difficult and tinged with sadness. If you have lost your Mam, perhaps do something nice for yourself that day. Run a bubble bath, or curl up with a book. Dubray’s in Ilac SC has a fab selection, we love the latest Beth O’Leary, feel good funny!
Nyrah beauty is an Irish brand my Mam and I adore. Their peacock-coloured skincare hatbox is a stunning gift. If your Mam is a #Glammy, Irish brand Tan Organic has beautiful gift sets. Their gorgeous tan goes on easily and is kind to sensitive skin. Their wonder balm is amazing for mums-to-be! Listoke Gin, from Co Louth has gift sets with flavoured gins and cool extras like juniper berries to jazz up your gin cocktails. The grounds of Irish National Stud Kildare are beautifully scenic with horses and fairy trails to explore. There’s also a lovely cafe to treat your Mammy. Made in Co Clare, Burren Perfumery sets are gorgeous. Inspired by the landscape and scents of the breath-taking Burren. Brooke and Shoals candles, hand creams and shower gels smell divine and are lovely for gifting Mammies!
