You ❤️  You are the best gift for Mother’s Day.  End of blog!

Of course, even though you are the gift that keeps on giving, it might be nice to get mama something nice to unwrap on her day!

A fun fact: did you know that Mothering Sunday is something separate to Mother’s Day?  According to the BBC, Mothering Sunday is celebrated in the UK on the fourth Sunday of Lent and has been since the Middle Ages.  Historically on this day children who have left home for work return to their mothering ‘churches’ and visit their mothers at the same time.  Mother’s Day, in contrast, was started in the US in 1907 by a lady named Anna Jarvis, who staged a memorial for her own mother.  It caught on and by 1914 it became a national holiday, celebrated on the second Sunday of March each year.

Whether you celebrate on Mothering Sunday or Mother’s Day, selecting a little something for mum is a lovely way of showing your appreciation for everything she does.  We have a few ideas to really help you do just that.

Gifts for New Mums 👩‍🍼

For a mum celebrating her first Mother’s Day, you can really make this a day to remember for her (just to make it clear I’m talking to the dads in the room, not the newborns!). Having some me time is so so important for a new mama, but it’s very rare they’re able to get any.  Whether it’s feeding, changing, playing, putting them down for a nap, and looking after the house and work in between all that, some R&R is probably way down their list.  Mother’s Day is the perfect opportunity for the matriarch in the house to take some time for themselves, and giving them the tools to do that is a lovely gesture to show you’re thinking of them.  We have a wide range of pamper, chill, bath time and relaxing gift sets, for however mum likes to take time for herself!

Mums on the Go 🏃‍♀️

For the mother that enjoys being out and about, we have you covered!  Our coffee lovers box will prep anyone for an exciting day, whether it’s spent out in the open air, or in a museum, or the fan favourite, soft play.  Or what about a rainy day spent inside baking?  And at the end of it all, they can lie back with a glass of fizz and write it all down in their gorgeous Cross Notebook and Pen set.  What’s not to love?

The Wine & Diner 🥂

For the mum whose evening is spent best with a glass of something grown up in their hand, we have a wide range of sets that cater for all palates.  Our ‘The Fun Be-Gins’ box comes with a stylish gin glass, reusable ice cubes and botanicals, and our ‘Wine O’Clock’ has a gorgeous wine glass designed by Lolita, a glass stopper from Orrefors, and some ultra cute wine glass charms.

Practically Mum  👩

Some of the best mums aren’t mums at all.  The person who is always there for you, who supports and believes in you, and who raises you up.  Even if they’re not mum by blood, they deserve to put their feet up too.

So however you celebrate and whoever you celebrate this Mother’s Day, do it in style!
