Gift Ideas

Lunch at Muddlers Club

Belfast Restaurant Vouchers

The Eat and Drink Belfast Restaurant Vouchers can be used in over 60 eateries in the city, offering the choice between Michelin Star fine dining, quirky restaurants, gastro pubs and cafes. They’re the perfect reason for your mum to enjoy some wining and dining, and can be bought online or in the Visit Belfast Welcome Centre.

Hotel and Spa Vouchers

What would a busy mum love more than a luxurious spa day or hotel stay? Buy a gift card for the Merchant Hotel, Culloden Estate and Spa or Galgorm Spa and Golf Resort and she can spend it at a later date on a day of being pampered in one of their beautiful spas. The hotels’ monetary gift vouchers can also be spent on overnight stays, meals and afternoon teas too.

Clothing, Jewellery and Gifts

Find clothing, footwear and accessories in a range of shops in Victoria Square. Go to Born and Bred for locally made gifts or Lunn’s or Steensons for jewellery. Top it off with local chocolates from Old Time Favourites.

Foodie Experiences

If your mum is a bit of a foodie, treat her to a food tour or tasting experience. She can make her own gin with Belfast Gin School or watch it be made at Copeland Gin Distillery or Echlinville Distillery. Or enjoy a family trip to Aunt Sandra’s Chocolate Factory to see old-time candy making, or a session at Tracey’s Farmhouse Kitchen where she can make and sample traditional griddle breads in a cosy kitchen setting.
