Mother’s Day Gifts | Sunday March 14th 2021

We know Sunday the 14th of March won’t be relevant to all of us and indeed sad for some, but for many, Mothering Sunday is a day to celebrate and say thank you for the love and support their Mum has shown through the years. 
This past year has meant that time spent together has become even more precious and sometimes finding a way to express that gratitude even harder. It shouldn’t be all about finding ‘the perfect gift’ and perhaps the most thoughtful is simply making the time to say how much she means to you.
But if you are in search of a Mother’s Day gift to compliment your heartfelt words, we have some ideas:

Send some Irish smoked salmon for an indulgent breakfast treat and maybe include a celebratory bottle of pretty pink Whispering Angel bubbles too!  However, breakfast might be too early for some to indulge so you can always go alcohol free with the bubbles!

Does she have a chocolate weak spot? Hazelnut truffle, velvety ganache, or salted caramel? You can cover all bases with a presentation box of irresistible Irish handmade treats.

What is an Irish Mammy without her cup of tea? Elevate her moment of relaxation to something a little more special with this elegant black tea blend from Alex Andrew London, best enjoyed in the afternoon with freshly baked scones, fresh cream & a selection of flavoursome jams or preserves. If you can’t be there to prepare it for her, you can still send a selection she’ll enjoy with minimal effort.

Serve up a Sunday roast to remember.


If we are within your 5km, talk to our knowledgeable butchers about Sunday lunch roasting joints with all the trimmings and pop into our off-licence to consult with Julie, our Food and Wine Advisor, to find the perfect wine to match. For afters, our very own pastry chef Jill has a selection of decadent desserts and perhaps scoop up a tub of locally made Freezin Friesan Icecream to serve! Of course, flowers are always welcome, so check out the beautiful bouquets from Utopia or pick up a bunch of locally grown Killowen Orchard blooms.

Máthair, Mammy, Mother, Mum, Mam, whatever you call her, find a way to show just how much you appreciate her this Mother’s Day.

Deliver the love from afar...
Send your love with an indulgent hamper from our carefully curated collection or select her favourites and create your own.

  • Ummera Smoked Products Organic Smoked Salmon 200g

    Ummera Smoked Products Organic Smoked Salmon 200g

    Ummeras organic salmon are raised off the west coast of Ireland according to strict organic principles; they grow under much less crowded conditions than normal farmed salmon, and the exposed sites where the currents are strong give them a more natural texture. Their diet is closer to the spices’ normal food, and is from sustainable sources; the natural pink colour comes from crustacean shells and phaffia yeast. Their rearing is not dependent on the chemical and anti-biotic inputs normal for other farmed salmon. The pure sea salt, raw cane sugar, and oak used in the smoking process are all approved for organic production.
