Nobody deserves more pampering than your mum. But what thoughtful, special, unusual gift can you get her for Christmas this year?
Relax, we’ve done all the thinking for you and here they are – our seven best Christmas gift ideas for mums:
1. The Five Star Treatment
OK so we had to include this: A Christmas gift voucher for a five star lunch, dinner, spa treatment or stay at the Fitzwilliam Hotel.
And, better yet, we’re running a draw all December long. All you have to do is buy any voucher for any amount and we’ll put your name in the top hat to win an overnight stay, dinner and cocktails for two people.
2. Kilkenny Shopping Day
The Kilkenny Shop still brings the very pinnacle of Irish design to you on Nassau Street, just as it has for over five decades now. Your mum will absolutely LOVE a voucher to spend on one of the new Orla Kiely handbags, Alex and Ani jewelry or a sumptuous lunch for her and her pals.
Take a look at their Christmas gift ideas also.
3. Afternoon Tea
We have a very unusual, but contemporary, take on traditional afternoon tea. In fact, ours is arguably the best in Dublin.
There’s a choice of luxury teas, coffees or cocktails, savory foods including hay smoked turkey with cranberry jelly together with chocolates, miniature trifles and then, finally, a dessert cocktail. Heavenly.
4. Flower Arranging Class
The Fitzwilliam Hotel works very closely with Adonis Flower Designers, Dublin’s top florist.
We can organise a flower arranging class for your mum and her friends at their studio on Patrick Street – it’s is not too far from the hotel.
You mum might be absolutely perfect as she is, but we’re pretty sure she’d love the opportunity for a fun makeover by an expert.
We’ll organise everything for you with Spirit Beauty Salon here at the hotel where there’s a full range of bespoke beauty therapies. From facials to body wraps, waxing to massage or just your nails, it all starts with a private consultation with your mum.
6. A Day In The Country
How does this sound?
A day trip touring around Glendalough and Powerscourt Gardens in Wicklow for a stroll around some of the finest scenery in Ireland. Then why not come back to the hotel for afternoon tea? Now that’s a wonderful gift idea.
7. Chocolate Making Workshop
If, like most people, your mum loves chocolate then this is a gift she’ll adore.
A chocolate making workshop where she can spend the whole day learning how to make this delicious delicacy by hand. Watch her eyes light up when you tell here. And wait for the denials…
Made a choice? It’s not easy but whichever one you go for, we’re sure that your mum will know that you think an awful lot of her because you’ve just made her very, very happy this Christmas.
