Great Gift Ideas

Sometimes a little inspiration is required to let your mother know how special she really is and Northern Ireland offers some distinctive locally crafted presents.

Say it with Flowers

Every mother likes to feel pampered on Mother's Day and there are plenty of ways in which this can be done.  Flowers may not be the most original gift but they are still as popular as ever.  There are numerous florists throughout Northern Ireland with their own special selection of flowers ranging from pretty hand tied bouquets of roses and carnations to more exotic and extravagant arrangements.

Of course if you prefer to have flora of a more permanent nature it might be worthwhile checking the garden centres such as Hillside Nursery or the Landscape Centre at Donegore for their wide ranging display of plants.

Something Different

If you need inspiration to find something more stylish and unique then why not explore the stunning collections of locally handcrafted designer jewellery.  Designers such as Rachel McKnight, Angela Kelly and Nora Watson accept commissions for one off pieces with some collections available in a range of craft stores across Northern Ireland such as Space CRAFT in Belfast, The Buttermarket in Enniskillen and Ards Crafts.

Whether it's a contemporary water colour by Marjorie Leonard or decorative Catherine Scott ceramics, Northern Ireland has a wealth of creative gift ideas that mums will love!

Koka ChocolatesOf course if you want to keep things simple then there are always chocolates, why not surprise your mum with a box of hand-made, locally produced treats.    Bonamargy Chocolates on the North Coast produce high quality chocolates, cakes and speciality products entirely by hand. The Chocolate Room on Belfast's Lisburn Road is chocolate heaven, with a superb range of some of the finest ice cream and chocolates in the world.  Stop by Aunt Sandras Candy Factory for some mouth watering Old Time Belfast Fudge!

Alternatively, you could treat your mum to a gift with a difference; if cooking is your mum's passion why not take her to see how the 'experts' cook with a cookery course at Belle Isle School of Cookery or to Northern Ireland's first dedicated seafood cookery school - The Mourne Seafood Cookery School, Kilkeel.
