Now I’m generally not an advocate of Hallmark holidays…except Valentine’s Day…and Father’s Day…and of course Mother’s Day (Okay, so maybe I am a fan of Hallmark Holidays). I’m a Mummy’s girl if ever there was one and proud to say I regularly pop over to my Mama with midweek flowers or a selection of Avoca baked goods and the occasional Yankee candle. Being the youngest of six I know she’s done more than her fair share of ‘mammying’ over the years for us all- we all owe our leaving certs, driving tests and first job interviews to her candle-lighting skills at mass! Here’s a few of my picks for something special to treat your own Mama to this Sunday…
1. Molton Brown, Coco & Sandalwood Bodywash , €22 2. Afternoon Tea for Two in the elegant Lord Mayor's Lounge, Shelbourne Hotel, Dublin 2 €65 3. Avoca Lambswool Throw €49.95 4.
