Donegal mammies are usually the ones to thank for making Christmas special, so they deserve the best. Here's a guide to gifts for her:

Each year we try to treat mums to great gifts as a way of saying thank you. Christmas presents for mammies are about pampering, time out and appreciation. We’ve created a shoppable selection below for you to find something your mum will love.

Another idea is to stretch the present to something that you can use to spend quality time with your mum. A spa voucher will ensure she gets the pampering she deserves and you can come along too for a girls’ day out – why not try one of our readers’ favorites? – Five Superb Spas on

An afternoon tea voucher ensures she’ll enjoy dainty sandwiches, sweet treats and maybe some bubbles. This December, think about booking her an experience with a difference at a local hotel or cafe.

Vouchers for her favourite hairdressers, beautician, local theatre or cinema will also go a long way to beat the January blues.

If you’re looking for a great gift to wrap up for mum this year, browse the picks below. We’ve selected many local stores and brands, while most of this list extends to aunts, sisters and friends too, i.e. a woman who loves a Christmas treat!
