Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and if you’re looking for a bit of inspiration for what to surprise your mum with, we’ve created a guide showcasing a range of ideas - from the quirky to the traditional! This year, why not go all out and be a little more creative than just running to Tesco for a last minute bunch of flowers and show mum just how much she really means to you!
Why do we celebrate Mother’s Day?
Every year we celebrate Mother’s Day three weeks before Easter Sunday, hence the reason why the date is always different - this year it’s taking place on Sunday 26th March. Traditionally, it was a day that Christians would spend time in their ‘mother’ church and also with their family. Although today Mother’s Day has lost the religious element, the concept of spending quality time with the family is still quite present - and much more focused on children showing their appreciation of their mum and all that they do for them.
