As ye all know, this Sunday, the 15th March, marks Mother's Day! In light of this I have put together a 'Gift Guide' to help make the present buying a little easier ;)
I have come up with lots of ideas and found some special treats and gifts that any woman would be happy with :) Of course, everything that I have included is available at an affordable price that will suit many budgets. From candles and jewellery to little trinket gifts, you are sure to find some inspiration here ;)
For this post I have chosen a very talented jewellery maker from Ennis, Co.Clare. 'Sophisticated Eclectic' is the best way to describe the beautiful pieces that Geraldine, owner of 'LuciLu Jewellery', creates. Necklaces, watches, bracelets and earrings are her speciality and believe me, her pieces are very special and one-of-a-kind.
Below I have included some of my favourite pieces from her collection. For prices and information about ordering or to look at more of the jewellery available, check out the Facebook page, 'LuciLu Jewellery' or ring 085-1000071.
Earrings: (prices start from €7)
Candles are always a lovely gift and are ones you can be sure that are used! For this post I have found the perfect candle set from a company called 'Cahir Candles Co.' who operate Cahir, Co. Tipperary.
Pictured below is their special Mother's Day Hamper as well as single candles available.
Prices are listed on the picture above.
Just looking at these hampers make you smile with all of the colour and the beautiful arrangement. Further details on how to order are available on the Facebook page 'Cahir Candles Co.'
I have called this part of the guide 'little bits' purely because it is made up of little bits, literally! Usually I would do something like this for my Mam because I always like to buy a few small things :) All of the items pictured below are from Penneys.
This beautiful multi-coloured scarf is just €4! It will match a lot and brighten up many outfits.
This cute photo frame is €5 and has two love heart frames for photographs, To add sentiment to this gift, you could print off two pictures of you and your mam or any pictures that are special to your family. These can be printed for as little as 55cent in Boots.
You can't go wrong here ;) 'Best Mom Ever' mug for €2
Cute travel mug available for €3
Two fragrances that are classic ones that many adore are the Elizabeth Arden 5th Avenue, and Elizabeth Arden Sunflowers. I have priced them below based on pricings at Shaws Department Stores. (Prices may vary at different stores and pharmacies)
5th Avenue is available for €14.50 (30ml) and €21 (75ml)
Sunflowers is available for €9 (30ml), €11 (50ml) and €15 (100ml)
As well as the items included in this post, you could buy flowers, chocolates and don't forget the card ;) I hope you enjoyed this post and found some inspiration from it!
