Mothers are special, make sure they know it. 

It’s been a tough year for everyone. Lockdowns, separated from the ones we love and the dreaded homeschooling! 

 This Mother’s Day, more than ever, you should take the chance to spoil your mum. We spoke to some of the Magee 1866 team about how they are going to celebrate this year.  

Charlotte – Design Director 

“As a mum of three young kids, Mother’s Day is usually marked by cuddles and cards in bed – their weekend clock can be pretty early so I am not sure a lie-in is on the agenda! My kids love art and I have some very special cards and pictures from the last few years. Mother’s Day to me means spring, so we try to spend some time outdoors, usually that would include a visit to my parents but this year we’ll FaceTime instead. My ideal Mother’s Day gift would be our Grey Donegal Tweed Lily Jacket, it’s the perfect style for this time of year and looks great paired with skinny jeans and white trainers for an off-duty Sunday.”  

Sorcha – Digital Marketing 

“I won’t get to see my mum this year, but that doesn’t mean we can’t make a fuss. My mum loves to accessories, so I’ve picked one of our gorgeous new Glen Check wide scarves, designed and woven here in Donegal. The neutral grey shade is really versatile and with the Irish weather the way it is I’m confident she will get many opportunities to wear it.” 

Daniel – Ecommerce Manager 

“With two young boys at home, the greatest gift I could give my wife is the day off! Me and the boys will head out for the afternoon and leave my wife to relax and catch up on her favourite Netflix shows. Our Wigwam throws are ideal for tucking up in on the couch, the boys can buy the chocolates. 

Don’t forget – Mother’s Day is Sunday, 14th March 2021. Explore our gift guide here.  

Spread the love with a gift from Magee 1866

Like most things, this Valentine’s Day is going to be a little different, BUT if you are lucky enough to be with your love this year, there are still lots of ways to mark the day and we have some ideas… 

Romantic Walk  

Although it’s technically spring, you shouldn’t ditch the layers just yet. Before you head out for a nice romantic walk (withing the restrictions, of course), pop on our Glenveigh Quilted Jacket or wrap up in a warm lambswool pashmina, designed and woven at our mill in Donegal. 

Dress for Dinner 

OK so you can’t go out, but that doesn’t stop you from dressing for dinner. Go all out in your finest tweed suit, light a candle and break out the table linens. Whether you’re ordering in or cooking from scratch, this will certainly make an impact. 

Low-key Picnic for Two

Bring the outdoors in with a picnic (or brave your garden all wrapped up!). Take a throw – our colourful Wigwam Collection, designed and woven in Donegal is a good choice – and a couple of luxurious, duck-down filled tweed cushions, and you have the makings of a charming picnic for two. 

Take up Poetry  

There is no better time in the year to profess your love than Valentine’s Day, and no better medium to do it than poetry. Our Donegal Tweed Notebooks are made in Ireland and are the perfect vehicle for you to present the fruits of your creative labour.

P.S. we have partnered with our neighbours on South Anne Street, Sheridans Cheesemongers, for a very special Valentine’s giveaway.
