The Level 5 and national lock down due to COVID19 virus has taken its toll on everyone. And with no loosening of 5K restrictions and no immediate opening of the hospitality sector, 2021 Mother’s Day gift ideas require some innovation. Because we all want to say a big thank you to our Irish mammies, and we might have to very well do it from distance.
In Ireland, Mother’s Day is celebrated on Mothering Sunday which is the fourth Sunday of Lent according to Irish Central whereas majority of the word would celebrate Mother’s Day second Sunday of May. This year Mother’s Day falls on March 14th in Ireland.
This is a quick overview of best Mother’s Day gift options in Ireland during lockdown. And yes, all of these have a delivery option so that we can follow the guidelines and not travel beyond 5K.
Mother’s Day Cupcakes
We have created two cupcake selection box ideas for Mother’s Day, they come in assorted flavour, with a card and a flower. There is an option for a box of 9 or a box of 12 cupcakes.
We also offer a convenient delivery service in Dublin meaning mammies are certain to receive their gift on the morning of Mother’s Day on the 14th March.
All boxes come with a card and a flower, and boxes are tied with a ribbon.
Mother’s Day Flowers
You can’t go wrong with flowers. As spring is approaching, a bouquet of flowers will brighten up the room and the mood. Just to remember to book ahead as March 14th will be a busy day for gift deliveries.

Another option is Interflora with a wide selection of Mother’s Day bouquets. If you are local to Dublin 15 consider SweetPea & Willow Flowers by Sharon.

The Most Special Mother’s Day
Mother’s Day 2021 will be the most special mother’s day we have ever had. With the COVID pandemic and lock down, many families have been separated from their grandparents and extended families. And many have lost their friends and family members.
Young couples have had lock down babies that have barely had time to spend with their grandparents. And many Irish people live abroad and not have had a chance to come back home and visit their mother’s.
The pandemic has made us appreciate the family we have and the time we can spend together.
So this Mother’s Day, create a special day to show your gratitude for the special relationship you have with your mother and your family.
