Oh Mother! A gift guide for an unconventional Mother’s Day
There’s no getting around it, folks. This Mother’s Day will be an unconventional one. With many of us away from the exceptional ladies in our lives, it’s going to be tough not to spend the day together. There are those of us who have returned to the nest, taken under our mothers’ wings in a time of crisis. And it’s vital to remember the amazing women who are navigating motherhood during the pandemic.
It’s when times are toughest that the mothers in our lives roll up their sleeves and make things work. So now is the time to show our appreciation with something special- Because now more than ever, we all need a reminder of our beauty and our resilience.
That’s where The Collective comes in. We have picked our most unique pieces of Irish jewellery from our artisan designers, ranging from handmade jewellery to custom and bespoke pieces. We’re also excited to share our range of unique gifts from craft designers across Ireland.
Oh my stars! This pendant from Cosmic Boulevard is an example of Irish independent art, created by Sinead Murphy from her Dublin workshop.

Sinead’s work is primarily made from recycled metals, making this necklace the perfect gift for that super-resourceful lady in your life!
Listen. It’s been a hard year. We know! And we’ve got you. This is one for the new mammies, the mamas to be, and the mothers working from home and making it work.
