On the off-chance you may have forgotten that Mother’s Day is this weekend (11th March) or perhaps your gift shopping plans were foiled by the Beast From the East, we’ve rounded up these last minute gift ideas that you can still pick up with time to spare.
Is your mum a skincare addict? Or perhaps she’s been using the same products for the past 20 years? Either way, she’s sure to enjoy a one-to-one consultation with the skincare professionals at The Skin Nerd. For €50, the voucher entitles your mum to a personalised online skin consultation with one of the expert Nerdettes who will recommend the best possible regime for her, cherry picking the most suitable products from over 30 international brands.

This Sunday, Brown Sugar salons will be offering 50% off all services including makeup application, haircuts, colouring and styling with all proceeds donated to charity. If that wasn’t enough, they will also be serving complimentary gin and tonics and glasses of prosecco throughout the day. So, what are you waiting for?

Spoil your mum with something she’ll treasure forever this Mother’s Day; the Double Infinity necklace and bracelet gift set by Chupi. With no beginning and no end, the interlocking circles perfectly symbolise that unbreakable mother-daughter bond. It’s up to you to decide if you want to give them both away or you could keep the necklace or the bracelet for yourself so that you have matching jewellery, either way, she’ll love it. Pop in store to the Powerscourt Townhouse located on South William Street, Dublin to pick up the gift in person and ensure you have it on time for Sunday.

Taking in the sights of the Phoenix Park, Christ Church Cathedral, Trinity College, the Georgian Quarter and more, your mum will be treated to afternoon tea, 1950’s jazz music and a slice of nostalgia on the upper deck of a vintage Routemaster. The perfect day out for all the family or a treat just for you and mum.
