This year more than most it seems especially important to think of our mothers, many of whom will be on their own for Mother’s Day. These gift ideas, ordered online are all guaranteed to arrive on time for Sunday.
Max Benjamin has a new bath and body range which is perfect timing for Mother’s Day. Available in five signature scents – French Linen Water, Pink Pepper, White Pomegranate, Dodici and Lemongrass & Ginger, the new range also includes a lovely soap and moisturising hand cream. Max Benjamin is offering free online delivery for orders over €20 and they assure me that all presents ordered will arrive in time for Sunday; www.maxbenjamin.ie.
Avoca’s online shop has everything from cosy throws for some cocooning to nourishing sweet and savoury delicacies for a special lunch. The Rose Cake, €14.95, is just one of the lovely gift ideas available. By the way, Avoca will be operating a customised personal shopping service at Kilmacanogue, Rathcoole and Dunboyne branches as of today, Thursday March 19, to save vulnerable customers from having to leave the car or enter the store. While waiting for the team to collect and return groceries, customers will receive a complimentary cup of tea or coffee to enjoy in the comfort of the car; www.avoca.com.
Fresh air, wide open spaces and some healthy exercise – the game of golf is a welcome addition in times like this. Treat your mum to a game of golf at Carton House as the lush 1,100 acre estate. It is getting ready to launch Twilight Golf from April 1 on both championship courses, The O’Meara and The Montgomerie. Tee times are available daily from 3pm, seven days per week, and a round of golf is available from just €45 per person. Book a tee time or buy a golfing voucher: www.cartonhouse.com.
Butlers Chocolates Mother’s Day Collection includes a keepsake pink Chocolate Collection, €15, which includes an assortment of 14 truffles, pralines and caramels with a gorgeous presentation box to reuse afterwards; www.butlerschocolates.com.
With an online store, Weir & Sons has compiled a gift guide outlining some of their bestsellers for mums. These include engravable gifts to photo frames. Pictured is a purple mother of pearl watch by Olivia Burton, €189 and Bug hoop earrings by Thomas Sabo, €149; www.weir.ie.
For a selection of eco-friendly gifts, take a look The Kind & Co. I’ll be ordering The Calm & Sleep Well Set by the Nature of Things, €45, for my mum who’s not sleeping so well (understandably). These sets are available to order online and come with free delivery and a free bar of soap; www.thekind.co.
Finally, in anticipation of more freedom ahead, why not buy a gift voucher for your mother to spend at one of the Cliff collection (Cliff Townhouse, Cliff At Lyons or Cliff House Hotel) when self isolation is over. There is the added bonus of an extra ten per cent off the most popular packages. Something to look forward to. www.cliff.ie
