Buy Mother’s Day gifts, and buy them from these Irish businesses

It’s Mother’s Day this Sunday. Don’t worry, we kind of forgot too.

We know there is a lot going on, but have you ever been more grateful for mothers or the people who ‘mother’, than you are now?  A small gift will lift spirits, maintain a bit of normality and if you can buy from an Irish supplier, you will also be supporting our economy. Don’t they say that every time you buy from an Irish retailer, a fairy gets their wings? Something like that. Shop below 

Coffee for mama

Cloud Picker will be doing a special Mother’s Day subscription box which can be bought online. For the mothers who need to keep caffeinated at this time! Monthly blend subscriptions start from €55 with monthly single origin subscriptions starting from €70. Gift cards start from €25 and can be purchased online here. 

Dress for success

Irish designer Niamh O’Neill has just launched NON2020 on niamhoneill.com. What better way to look forward to brighter times than with a gorgeous dress? Niamh O’Neill offers free next day shipping all over Ireland. Orders received by 4pm today are guaranteed for delivery in time for Mother’s Day.

The Ibiza belted midi dress is crafted from lightweight gingham with puff sleeve detail, available for €420

Earrings for a queen

If you think your mum can wait a few days for delivery, this Mother’s Day Loulerie – a firm favourite in (virtual) IMAGE HQ – are offering each customer 20% off online orders. So you could treat yourself and gift a loved one. Just use the code “MOTHERSDAY” at the checkout. We love these simple By Boe, Open Angular Earrings for just E50. 

Hands off

The Burren Perfumery is a small, west of Ireland-based company making cosmetics and perfumes inspired by the landscape around us. Everything is made on site, by hand, in small batches. The Castile soap is a favourite of ours, and will be of hers.

Man Of Aran Castile Soap, E18 / 200mls

 

The softest just for her

White & Green was created in 2015 run by the team of Winckworth girls, made up of sisters Rebecca and Danielle and “mastermind mum” Sari Winckworth. The company came out of the realisation that there was a major gap in the market for a go-to brand of quality bed linen that valued organic and Fairtrade production. And so White & Green became precisely that. Their incredibly soft, but machine-washable and durable throws are now on sale reduced from E119.00 to 89.00. 

Golden ladies 

Golden Discs are a blast from the past right? Well the Irish company are still around and want to make this Covid-19 period as easy and entertaining as possible. They are offering 20% off for any customer over 60, or self-isolating. Who wouldn’t like a big old box set or an old fashioned album to entertain them for the next while? See goldendiscs.ie/

Chocolate, need we say more

Bean and Goose was founded by sisters Karen and Natalie Keane. They make chocolate at Last Tree Farm based in the Wexford countryside, Ireland. The Really Fancy Collection (how much do you love that name?) is curated collection of their most loved bar flavours for €19. Each collection ordered online will arrive gift wrapped, in letter box friendly packaging. You can even include a handwritten love note, just let them know what you wish to say at check out.

Skin on skin

Pestle & Mortar is another firm favourite at IMAGE. This Irish company has gone global with its truly innovative skincare in recent years. Our must have product is the Pure Hyaluronic Serum (€43, McCauley’s), a game-changer for any woman’s skin.
