And if, like me, you’ve yet to even start, you should probably start with the big dog – mam.

Yes, nailing your present for your mam is the assurance you need to maintain your spot as favourite child in the family and all the perks that go along with it. 

Other than that, it’s also just nice to spoil her whenever you get the chance but where to start?

There’s almost too much choice when you hit the high street, making a decision very hard to reach.

So, in a bid to get the first on your list sorted, we’ve put together a list of gifts that we think any mam would love. And major bonus points because they’re all from great Irish brands. 

Here are our top picks.

1. Christmas Gift Set from Jane Darcy

Jewellery is always a safe bet when it comes to a nice gift, however, maybe a statement piece is not the best route to take when it’s going into somebody else’s collection.

3. A weekend away with Original Irish Hotels

Quite literally the gift that keeps on giving – well, at least for as long as your subscription lasts. A subscription box can be a great practical gift for the mum that doesn’t want anything lavish.

6. A cashmere jumper from Lucy Nagle

This is definitely an investment piece, but if your mam loves a good jumper and would get the benefit out of some high-quality knitwear then you can’t do better than the cashmere range from Lucy Nagle. Yes, the luxurious fabric really is a treat and one she’ll get year after year out of.
