I know, I know – Women’s Day is just gone by and we’re already reminding you of Mother’s Day. But you see, March is a busy month with so much happening, and you got to have a head start on things. Especially when it comes to getting a thoughtful Mother’s Day gift. (P.S. Since Mother’s Day 2023 and St. Patrick’s Day long weekend are cosying up with each other, these gifts can double up for both occasions!)
All things florals and fragrant – Botany Diffuser Collection, Silk Prestige
Is there anyone in the world who doesn’t appreciate the beautiful combination of a flower and a lingering fragrance? I, for one, love all things floral – be bedsheets, linen, bags or crockery. The Botany Diffuser collection caught my attention because the flowers (and I did do a double take) are made of silk, and look so real and natural. Plus the fragrances from classic rose to hot pink peony are so alluring. Imagine having a beautiful lily or peony by your bookshelf, desk or corner table emitting a lovely scent all day long?
This one seems like a crowd pleaser and something your mother would definitely love. Check out their wonderful collection here.
Mother’s Day Gifting Event – Molton Brown, Dundrum
Since we are talking about florals, you should check this out as well: Molton Brown Heavenly Gingerlily Limited-Edition Launch is about discovering graceful Mother’s Day sets and to celebrate the launch of their new limited edition design.
Inspired by a captivating botanical garden, their white-floral fragrance blossoms with a bouquet of lively ginger, elegant lily and soft musk. As a tribute to this opulent collection, Molton Brown has illustrated their Bath, Body and Hand Care bottles with flourishing lilies.
You can enjoy the day with refreshments and a goody bag with a minimum €50 spent.

(A little bit about the Hugh Lane Gallery, just in case you haven’t been there before: The Hugh Lane has an exceptional history centred around the ground-breaking vision of Sir Hugh Lane himself. Hugh Lane held the first exhibition of Irish Art in 1904 in London and continued to innovate by endowing the Gallery with a unique and exceptional collection of modern art, including the first impressionist paintings in any public collection across Britain and Ireland. Sir Hugh Lane presented the collection to Dublin Corporation (now Dublin City Council) in 1908.)
