Sometimes, special occasions can have a touch of sameness…making a celebration memorable may present a challenge.
If you’ve bought flowers or chocolates for your Mom every May 9th, why not get creative this year? If your Mom is of Irish heritage, you can honor your family history while making her Mother’s Day the best ever!
Adding a touch of the Emerald Isle (with all of its unique culture and history) to a Mother’s Day celebration can offer a sense of fun and a feeling of connection with the past…here are some great ways to add Irish traditions and spirit to your Mom’s big day:
Make Her A Special Dinner…
Some classic Irish recipes include Irish stew, soda bread, and maybe a pint of Guinness. Taking the time to cook your mother a special Irish meal on Mother’s Day can give the celebration a festive air!
If you’re celebrating Mother’s Day in a group, this sort of meal can be a hearty crowd-pleaser, as well as quite economical and easy to prepare.
If you’re not interested in cooking an elaborate meal, just enjoy an Irish coffee with your mother while you give her your gift. Delicious coffee made with Bailey’s Irish Cream will appeal to almost anyone…unless your mother is a teetotaler, you can be sure this creamy-smooth beverage will be a hit. A lovely pot of tea and an Irish dessert can be great options if your Mom doesn’t drink.
Create The Perfect (Gaelic) Atmosphere…
To add charm to your meal or gift-giving experience, play some Irish music and explain to your Mom that you’ve been learning a little bit about your Irish history, and that you wanted to honor it on May 9th. Chances are, you’ll have a great heart-to-heart about your family genealogy, etc.
Putting together a scrapbook with family pics and fun captions can be a wonderful way to give a personal gift she’ll love – decorate the pages with Celtic knot work or Shamrocks to make it fun! Working on a family tree for the scrapbook might be a project the two of you can do together – leave a page in front of the scrapbook and grow the “tree” together!
Gifts That Inspire…And Evoke The Irish Spirit…
Beautiful Irish jewelry that is handmade in Ireland itself can be the penultimate Mother’s Day gift! Almost every woman enjoys receiving gorgeous jewelry – you can’t really go wrong here!
Luckily, Irish jewelry is the product of thousands of years of artistry in metal work – since the 6th century, the Irish have been world-renowned for their achievements with precious metals!
Here are some lovely options for Mother’s Day – all of them feature symbols that are important facets of the Irish culture:
