Mothers’ Day 2024 falls on Sunday 10th March, it’s time to CELEBRATE!

If, like my mum- pictured holding my twin and I, you have an eco conscious frame of mind when thinking about gifts then you’ve come to the right place! 

Whilst my mum asks for nothing more than the knowledge that her kids are healthy, happy and safe, it’s still nice to get her something special.

With this in mind here are some Eco Friendly Gift Cards that will delight this Mother’s Day:

What could be better than a Gift Card , but no ordinary gift card – a gift card that offers a unique experience, from Medicinal mushroom experiences to mythological tours.


Slieve Aughty Centre (located in Loughrea, Co Galway) is a beautifully designed Eco House offering unique artistic accommodation in beautiful surrounds. Their eco credentials are second to none and it’s the perfect nature getaway surrounded by hills and walks. 


Perhaps mum is an adventure lover and loves to get on the waves? The gang at Aloha Surf School based in Fanore, Co Clare, offer a range of fun surf and sup adventures. Say hi to Pete and Ali for us 🙂 


Or maybe mum loves to host dinner parties? The SLATED homeware collection has everything the hostess with the mostest loves! This artisan collection is brought to you by husband and wife team Ed & Tara Hammond based in Dublin. Totally unique handcrafted gifts to show off to guests! 

And That's Not All....


A Bumblebee Flower Farm Gift Card may be just the thing.  Bumblebee Flower Farm, based in Drimoleague, West Cork offers a range of courses and workshops designed to empower you to make holistic decisions and learn how to implement their ‘Whole’ Systems Approach in your garden or farm.


Does your Mother dream of drifting lazily down a river whilst learning abut the local history? The Floating Through Time Adventure from Boyne Valley Activities has it all:

“The best historical tours are those that make you see the past from a fresh perspective. Putting you on a giant inflatable raft will do that. So too will floating through the medieval capital of the Ancient East. You won’t get too many historical days out like this. This is a day where you swap books for wellies and pens for paddles to experience something different.” 

Let her choose from  a variety of adventure activities with a Boyne Valley Activities Gift Card. 


Maybe she’d like to get away for a few days with a mix of adventure thrown it? Then the BaseGlamp Adventure from Go With The Flow is what you need –  2 nights stay in BaseGlamp’s new sleeping experience cabin and relax on the River Barrow as you explore Ireland’s Ancient East by Canoe.
