So no matter where in the world you are, make sure you show your mammy just how much she means to you this Mother’s Day.

Missing mum on Mother's day

10 ways to treat your mammy when you can’t be with her this Mother’s Day:

1. Send her a personalised gift.

For the sentimental mammy that misses the family all together, why not surprise her with a personalised family frame that will soon become the favourite item in the house! She’ll be only to delighted to show it off when the neighbours come around for tea!

2. Organise afternoon tea for her.

With Ireland now opened for socialising again and restrictions eased, mam might like to get herself all dressed up and head out for the day for afternoon tea, and we have just the afternoon tea experience that she’ll really enjoy in Dublin.

3. Organise a mammies night.

Get in touch with her friends’ kids or other halves to organise a night out for the mammies. Maybe a nice dinner out so they can all enjoy a fun-filled evening together with good food and great company.

4. Send her a Mother’s Day personalised frame.

A special message for a special mam in a personalised frame from you this Mother’s Day.

5. Spoil her with a pamper session.

Let’s face it we all love a day of pampering, and no one deserves it more that mam. Send her some pampering gifts to relax and enjoy either at home or you could send her a gift voucher for a spa day.

6. Send her flowers made to last.

Sending flowers is always an easy solution, but why not go one step more and send her favourite flowers that will last a lifetime, so the next time your home to give her a hug she’ll get to show you the flowers in person. She’ll always think of you when she sees these flowers on the kitchen table or the hall table!

7. A miss you gift.

Saying ‘I miss you’ can sometimes cause a lot of emotion, sadness and tears, but it also shows how much someone means to you. The fact you are missing them so much and thinking of them, it’s a gesture of love and thought. You could send her a miss you message as a little keepsake token.

8. Customised gift from the grandkids.

Is she missing her grandchildren as well? A special gift from the grandkids will no doubt bring a happy tear to her eye and we have just the gift – this customised kids drawing embroidery will be something she can treasure forever.

9. A night away.

Treat her to a night away from the chaos of everyday life. Book her into a nice hotel (possibly with a spa!) and surprise her on the day with this scratch and reveal card. Be sure to be on video call with her when she’s scratching it to see her reaction. For the ultimate surprise you could book her flights to come visit you! (If covid restrictions permit)

10. Spoil her with a piece of handmade jewellery.

I’m sure a nice piece of Irish made jewellery won’t go amiss! Something they love to wear and makes them feel loved and thought of.
