“We couldn’t work out if we should use the word Mam, Mum, Mom or Ma to promote our Mother’s Day campaign, so we decided to ask the people of Ireland. What started out as a bit of fun ended up giving us some pretty interesting insights in to Irish people’s relationships with their mothers”

Lulu O’Sullivan, Founder of Gifts Direct


The online survey ran from March  14 -19.

Thanks Ross O’Mullane

“I wonder if you’d give a shout out to our special range of Ma-Jamas designed with Mother’s Day in mind. Who’s Mammy wouldn’t like a pair of Auld Wan pajamas?”

Cards from Catsnake Prints.

Started by Ann-Marie and Siobhán, who met in college.

Ann Marie writes:

We decided we’d try our hands at starting our own little screen-printing business a few months ago and cards seemed like the best place to start. We’ve been loving every second of it!
All designs are initially sketched by ourselves and then transfered to silkscreen. We hand screen-print our cards in our small studio in Dublin. Almost all the paper we use is recycled and all materials are locally sourced. Our ethos is to make an environmentally friendly, quality handmade product that won’t hurt the piggy bank.

Available to purchase at Jam Art Factory.
