These are the perfect gifts to spoil the woman who birthed you.
Even though your mammy will most likely say “oh don’t be spending your money on me!” when you ask them what they want for Christmas, you’ll probably want to spoil them rotten anyway.
I like to think mams are the easiest of the family to buy presents for – they’re happy with pretty much anything. If it smells nice and looks good, they’ll be chuffed.
If you need a bit of inspiration for the gifting season, fear not, as we’ve put together a list of presents all mammies are sure to love. From flashy to affordable, there’s something for every mam on this list.
The key to winning Christmas is buying presents for the person that they would never buy themselves. No mam I know would splash out on fancy PJ’s, so these PJ Salvage ones in Arnotts are perfect.
Mams love tiny bags that fit everything in them, so get her a nice one that she’ll have forever. This Michael Kors one is gorge and won’t break the bank.
Among the list of things people don’t buy themselves is swanky perfume. Georgio Armani Sì is my mam’s personal favourite and this gift set from Brown Thomas is lovely.
Christmas is the only time we can sit at home and not feel guilty about it. Nothing sets the festive mood like a Christmas Yankee Candle lit while everyone flakes out after stuffing their faces.
Clarins specialise is ageing skin (sorry mam), so she’ll love something like this. Clarins Double Serum is a favourite in STELLAR HQ and is pretty pricey individually, so this set is great value.
LanaiBlo are the best hairdryers on the market right now – all the bloggers love them. Get your mam’s name on one and it’ll be the perfect personalised prezzie this year.
Becoming: Michelle Obama is the book everyone is talking about this year. Who doesn’t want to read something about an inspiring mother?
Tell your mammy she needs to relax with this luxurious gift set from Lush. From lotions to soaps, she’ll enjoy everything in this fab set.
If you have the cash to splash this Christmas, Daniel Wellington watches are the perfect gift. Rose gold is super feminine and my mam’s personal favourite.
If your mammy already has everything, why not treat her to a spa day? The Shelbourne Hotel in Dublin has some great vouchers, including Swedish massages and professional blow dries.
If your mam loves entertaining (and alcohol), a cocktail recipe book and a bottle of her favourite bevvy is the perfect gift. This gin recipe book from ASOS will set you back just €13.81 while a bottle of fancy pink gin will be no more than €25 usually. Bottoms up!
Kindles are great presents for literally anyone who reads. This one from Currys is only €79.99 and will save your mam loads on books in the future.
When all else fails – homeware. Your mam will love these cute little tumblers from Debenhams when she’s having her Christmas Day tipple with the fam.
There’s nothing like sitting down and getting cosy after your dinner on Christmas Day. These slippers from Debenhams are microwavable, meaning you can heat them up to warm your toes on cold winter nights. Perfect for a stocking filler.
With all this to choose from there’s no way you’ll be stuck this month. Happy shopping!
