Happy Mother’s Day!

Mother’s Day is just around the corner! We’re taking a look at what the tradition is, the reason behind it and also some fun and unique gift ideas to consider for your mum this year.

What is Mother’s Day and where did it originate

Mother’s Day, like most ‘holidays’ has its roots in religious tradition. Traditionally, ‘Mothering Sunday’ is the fourth Sunday of Lent for Christians. It was a day when mainly daughters (often working away from home, as domestic servants) were granted the day off to visit their mother and family.

Today, as we know it, Mother’s Day is a day to celebrate all mums around the world, where children give presents, flowers, and cards to their mums.
