Christmas Day Gift Ideas
Mammy can put the fear of god into ya but in the same sentence, Mammy can make you feel all squishy and safe too right?
But what the feck is a Hipster Mammy & how does she make you feel?
The Hipster Mammy is …
A mother who likes to listen to music rather than watch Eastenders * let’s be honest here Eastenders and all those soaps are pure negative brain shite * …there I said it.
She enjoys fashion but knows where to draw the line.
She makes you feel slightly under pressure, do I have to be all hipstery too?
She also makes you want to know more about the underground Irish music scene just so you can keep up with her Spotify playlist.

Our Mammies, hipster or not, are our anchors to home no matter how far we roam.
Mammies are our lifeline to family even from the far reaches of Australia and North America.
Mammies deserve to be treated as special all year round not just on Christmas day.
Even if you can’t see your mammy send her a gift that will mean the world to her. Don’t forget to call home or better yet Skype or Messenger your mammy on the day.
Reaching out to her will make her so very very happy and take it from me when she is gone you will be wishing you could speak to her
If you are a Mammy then also take a bow and remember you are doing a great job, you ARE enough and try not to feeling guilty about all the things: it is a waste of an emotion.
