Mothers Day Giveaway and Gift Guide!

If you live outside Ireland or the UK then you can relax, you’re off the hook. But for us, Mother’s Day is this Sunday, March 10th. If you’re stumped for a present then this little round-up should help – plus, keep reading for details of a flash giveaway that could solve your gift giving woes!

Mother's Day 2013 Gift Guide

ONE:  I’ve recently discovered Lucy Annabella Organics, a lovely Irish brand offering luxury cosmetics and candles, like this Spearmint and Lavender one pictured. Three other candle varieties are also available, and they range from €36-€42. Find them on MiseBeauty.com.

TWO: The Emjoi Micro-Pedi is a genius at-home pedicure system that really works. The battery operated rollers make short shrift of dry, rough skin and will have your mum sandal ready in seconds. It’s €49.95 and I reviewed it here.

THREE: For unique personalised gift options, check out Not On The High Street – this keyring is just €12.23 and you can change both the message and the initial to suit.  

FOUR: If I lived in the same country as my mum, I’d be taking her for afternoon tea – one of life’s greatest pleasures! Here she is tucking into the spread at The Shelbourne on her last visit.

FIVE: You can find a great range of cards on Etsy with a bit more personality than the norm. This Mark Twain one from doodlelove caught my eye - I know at least half of it's true, and can only hope the other half applies!

SIX: In an ideal world I’d be sending my mum this Rosie for Autograph cashmere dressing gown from Marks & Spencer. Sadly the €270 pricetag falls just a little out of my budget - sorry Mum - but M&S offer a range of alternatives from around the €30 mark onwards.

SEVEN: Another Etsy Card I can just imagine my youngest niece giving to my sister. In fairness, she is pretty awesome - and her sister is equally amazing. Find it here.

EIGHT: For something a little unexpected, why not try Gift Owl – give them a few details about what your Mum might like, confirm your budget and they’ll do the rest. Prices start at just £12.99 (it's a UK service) and your handpicked and personalised gifts will arrive parcelled up in brown paper and string.


But this year, you could have Mother's Day all wrapped up because the lovely people at Emjoi have given me two Micro-Pedi's to give away. Both prizes are worth €49.95 and I've actually gifted one of these to my Mum in the past, so I can tell you it will go down a treat. Open to Irish and UK followers, to enter just like both Emjoi and Fluff and Fripperies on Facebook and pop your details into the widget below. You'll also have the chance to gain a few extra optional entries if you'd like. Best of luck!
