Christmas Gift Ideas: For Your Mum

Gifts for Mum

Finding a gift for your Mum at Christmas can often be a tricky job. What do you get the most important lady in your life while also keeping in mind that she has repeatedly said – “I am grand, sure I don’t need anything at all, I just want a nice peaceful Christmas”

Here is my pick of some of the best Christmas gift ideas for your special Mum.

1. A “Good” Coat

Faux Fur
Dunnes Stores – €90

We all know how fond Mum’s are of finding a “Good” coat. A good coat will end up a staple part of your Mum’s wardrobe for years to come. This gorgeous burgundy coat from Dunnes Stores will offer protection from the elements and with it’s fur collar it’s an excellent wardrobe update. Also, because of the wrap design, changes in body shape year on year will not change the excellent fit and shape of this piece.

2. Practicality is King

Stylish & Practical
Brown Thomas – €70

Because your Mum insists that she doesn’t need anything the gift you buy really needs to be practical in order to justify its purchase. Why not treat her to this gorgeous DKNY phone cover with wrist strap. It offers protection to her phone which she is forever afraid of breaking, the wipeable material is music to her ears and the wrist strap makes it makes it that bit easier to find in a hurry.

 3. Quality, Quality, Quality

Everyday Comfort
Clarks – €79.95

Quality not quantity is definitely the mantra of most Mum’s. Unlike most of us our Mum’s would rather buy one good pair of shoes rather than coming home with a haul from Pennys. These gorgeous suede brogues from Clark’s definitely tick all the boxes for what makes a good “Sturdy” shoe.

4. Investment Piece

Classic Elegance
Debenhams – €60

Most Mum’s have a few items of jewellery which resurface every time there is a special occasion. These beautiful rose gold vermeil earrings which are designed in a drop style with two stunning Labradorite stones are the epitomie of classical elegance. A piece like this will become a welcome addition to your Mum’s jewellery collection.

5. Go Gadget

Girl Gadget
Marks & Spencer – €35

Often, sitting back with a glass of wine is the only piece of ‘me’ time Mum’s get. This pink wine opener set will be one of those kitchen utensils she looks forward to using1

Happy Shopping!

Stylishly yours,

Heather – AKA FreckleFacedBlog
