    She’s so difficult to buy for! I’m a 27 yo male looking for a simple gift for my mam. Was going to buy her a candle but thought that’s too boring 🙄 what would you buy, please give me ideas!

    It depends what she likes No?

    If you are just talking about bland and generic then sure a candle, flowers, chocolates (assuming she likes chocolates and is not allergic to flowers).

    My own mother I would have bought her something Formula 1 or crossword related but they may not be something your mother would be interested in.

    Google Home Hub is a decent product.

    Perfume or a scarf maybe.

    Does she go to the hairdresser regularly, maybe a gift voucher for that or for a beauty treatment in a salon

    Have a look at George & Milly....she does lovely gifts & I'm pretty sure she had a gift guide up on her Instagram the other day...she stocks lovely products...

    The Handmade Soap Company do lovely sets too...

    Esker Fields do nice creams & lotions too

    Or as already suggested, voucher for the chemist or a hairdressers is always a good one

    I have one extremely difficult to buy for family member (no interests or hobbies or mass on household things because she just rents a room) so unless she happens to mention something off hand during the year that sparks an idea, I always go with a hairdresser voucher. At least I know she'll use it.

    If she lives in the countryside with little or no lighting then have a think about a hat with a light!

    That's coming from Amazon US and doesn't even ship to Ireland.

    They have them in Dunnes - I got one for the OH for his birthday. He wears it when walking the dog in the dark so he can see what needs to be picked up

  • Depending on your means, a Kindle if she’s a reader. A Fitbit, if she’s active. A subscription to a concert or music venue. A years membership to OPW sites if interested in history. A years membership to a racecourse if interested in racing. A season ticket to her favourite GAA team.

    I got my mam a subscription for Spotify even though she never used it. She loves it now
