You might remember that The Irish Workshop launched only a few months ago – we provide a platform for shoppers to buy directly from the workshops of Irish makers, designers and craftspeople. Above (with details below) are six ideas for Irish-made Mother’s Day Gifts. Items can be ordered by clicking the links.

1. For the Style Queen Mammy: She might be your mother, but she still appreciates a bit of sch-tyle! Áine Knitwear’s range of contemporary Irish knitwear is a real hit with Irish mammies.

2. For the Mammy Who Loves to Talk: Dublin artist Orla Walsh pays homage to the Irish Telefón boxes that only two decades ago sprinkled the Irish countryside with these awesome limited edition pop-art prints.

3. For the Chef Mammy: Remember that old Irish myth of The Brown Bull of Cooley? It was the one where Queen Maeve of Connacht desires to have a bull to match that of her rival, and Cuchulainn gets involved and is forced to kill his best friend Ferdia. All very tragic but it teaches us about the futility of war and the worthlessness of possessions. Anyway…. this beautiful Apron designed by Dúinn Designs is a modern nod to this old epic tale, and a great way to encourage your Mammy to cook up another Sunday roast.

4. For the Mrs. Doyle Mammy: Ah go on…. go on, go on, go on, sure you’ll have a cup of tea…. This teapot picture is made from turf in Co.Roscommon by Bog Buddies and can be customized to say whatever you want. Extra thoughtful Mother’s Day gift = extra brownie points.

5. For the “Hard-to-Buy-For” Mammy: You can never go wrong by gifting a candle. Meath-based Soilse has taken fragrances of Ireland and captured them in a gorgeous range of scented candles – choose from: A Soft Day, Connemara Mist, Donegal Dew, Wild West Cork and My Mother’s Garden.

6. For every Mammy: Fab Cow Design have managed to capture into words all that we want to say but don’t say.
