Mother’s Day is fast approaching and it’s time to find the perfect gift for mother dearest. One of the best things to receive is a good book, whether you like fiction, self-help or gardening books, being gifted an endearing tale is such a treat.

We’ve put together a list of the best reads to buy your mum (or yourself) this Mother’s Day. They’ll certainly make the book lover in your life very happy.

1: The Importance of Being Aisling by Emer McLysaght and Sarah Breen (Gill Books)

Taking up where book one left off, Aisling is now 29 and she’s still a complete Aisling. After a tough year, things seem to be going well with Aisling and boyfriend John, and life with her flatmates Sadhbh and Elaine in their notiony Dublin apartment is more craic than ever.

However, readers can expect big changes for Aisling in book two when a shock change sees her moving back Down Home. Can she give up the sophistication of brunch and unlimited Pinot Greej? Will she and Mammy kill each other living back under the same roof? And where does that leave her and John? The storyline includes a hilarious girls’ trip to Vegas which gives Aisling some unexpected confidence that sees her going on to grab Ballygobbard by the horns with a new venture.

4: Lost in Motherhood by Grace Timothy (Harper Collins)

Best described as The Wrong Knickers for mums, in this wry, resonant and darkly funny memoir, journalist Grace Timothy explores motherhood as an issue of identity.

The hilarious book follows Grace’s journey from a young married woman at the top of her editorial game in London, to a thirty-something mum, confused as to how she can love someone as much as her daughter and yet feel lost as a person.

Compulsively readable, irresistibly written and incredibly well-observed, Grace’s searingly-honest account of motherhood is essential reading for every mum trying to find their way after the mother of all identity crises.

In her new cookbook, The Baby-Friendly Family Cookbook, Aileen is back with over 150 wholesome recipes that suit the entire family. From winning breakfasts like MacMammy Egg Muffins and Sweet Potato Orange Pancakes, to lunchbox wonders like Veggie-Loaded Mini Quiches and Italian Quinoa Bites.

Every recipe has been developed with health and nutrition in mind and will appeal to the whole family, making mealtimes a pleasure rather than a chore.

7: The Newborn Identity by Maria Boyle (Penguin)

Meeting a baby is like meeting someone from the internet: you got used to calling them by a weird nickname and now you need to call them by their real name; they look nothing like their photo; it is hard to believe they’re real until they are actually there…

The hilarious and poignant cartoons of illustrator Twisteddoodles bring a smile to the faces of parents every single day. Her drawings brilliantly capture the unique experience of motherhood and the huge range of emotions that it brings.

In this warm and witty book, Maria writes candidly about what becoming a mother has meant for her. Interspersing her words with brilliant cartoons, she delivers a marvellously entertaining snapshot of life as a modern-day parent. Her sharp observations cover everything from the sleep-deprived early days of having newborn twins to the reality of being a working mum; from just getting out of the house to slowly get your social life back. Upbeat and humorous, this is a wonderful book for parents and parents-to-be.

8: The Gift of Friends by Emma Hannigan (Hachette Ireland)

The final novel from the beloved and inspiring Emma Hannigan is a life-affirming, uplifting story that celebrates the strength and joys of female friendship.

Kingfisher Road- a leafy, peaceful in the town of Vayhill. But there are whispers behind closed doors. Who is moving into Number 10? Danielle appears to her new neighbours to have a perfect, glossy life. But not everything is as it seems… In fact, each of the other four women who live close by has a secret and each is nursing their own private heartache.

But could a gift be waiting on their doorsteps? And, by opening their front doors, and their hearts, to each other, could the women of Kingfisher Road discover all the help they need?

Gifts that incorporate our era's obsession with all things technological are always a hit.

From the newly innovative to the nostalgic, we have a high-low mix of gadgets and accessories for the tech zealot in your life: 

Huawei Mate 20 Pro 

Huawei is quickly taking over as one of Ireland's most popular smart phone producers. The Mate 20 Pro in particular is hailed for it's amazing camera, super fast charging and huge screen. 

We tried it out for a few months, and have concluded that it's one of the best phones on the market when it comes to photography and innovation – with features including direct translations, AI photography, 3D screening, nutrition cataloguing and water resistance. 

Play Station Classic

Sony announced earlier this year that they were launching the PlayStation Classic – a console inspired by the original, preloaded with 20 vintage games. 

The gaming device is modelled off the OG PlayStation however this device is almost half the size of the original. The console is being released exactly 24 years after the original and first ever PlayStation launched. 

 

Fujifilm Instax Camera 

 Fujifilm’s Instax Square SQ6 is making memory conservation a priority – allowing digital natives to capture their happiest moments on real film, but with a modern interface.

The instant camera is capable of changing the brightness and exposure of images before they are printed, and photographers can take multiple images before scrolling through and choosing the one they want to print. There are also opportunities to get seriously creative, with capabilities for double exposure, strobe colour filters and selfie modes.

Beats Headphones 

Beats by Dr Dre EP Headphones are finely tuned, which means you'll be able to hear music as the artist intended.

The clear acoustics give space and balance to the sound, which means your music will always sounds great. Usually, these headphone are pretty pricey – but they're on sale for almost half price at Curry's right now. 

Smartphone Projector Deluxe

This handy partible projector uses a smartphone turn even the most mundane of surfaces into a TV screen.

The crafty contraption is ready for use with iOS, Android and Windows-compatible smart phones. 

Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer

The team behind Dyson's ground-breaking vacuum cleaners have redesigned the modest hair dryer into a  beauty essential that will revolutionise your styling routine.

A powerful digital motor speeds up drying time significantly with precise airflow. The intelligent heat control system measures air temperature 20 times per second, preventing damage and retaining the hair’s natural shine.

10000mAh Solar Power Bank

For the social media savvy or avid iPhone photographers, sometime their biggest smart phone issue can be running out of charge.

While regular power banks also need to be charged up on the regular (and seriously, who remembers to do that) a solar power one only needs to be left in charging mode in the sun. Ideal for holiday where you can just charge it on any outdoor table or let it charge as you lie on the beach and scroll through Insta – it's a travel 'grammers dream.

Every woman deserves to feel sexy and powerful, and some of your friends understand that notion more than others.

You know the one, the gal-pal that's always giving insanely detailed in and out's (pardon the pun) of her sex life, her favourite sex positions and toys, even her tips that you never really asked to hear.
