MOTHERS DAY HAMPERS
Mother's Day Hampers for Mums across the UK
Mother’s Day in the UK will be celebrated on Sunday 14th March in 2021. Sadly, many of the things we would usually do to celebrate the occasion are still not possible, such as meals out, day trips and family get-togethers. That being the case, we have worked harder than ever to create a range of Mother’s Day Gift Hampers that will suit every budget this Mother’s Day. Look out for Prosecco, chocolates, biscuits, cakes, nuts, teddies and more, all packed into some of our stunning new gift boxes. If you are wondering why the UK and the USA celebrate Mother’s Day on different dates (Mother’s Day in the USA is on Sunday 9th May 2021) it’s because the two are entirely different events that now share the same name! In the UK, Mothering Sunday has a long history that goes back to the 16th or 17th Century, when staff and servants were encouraged to head home to their ‘mother’ church on the fourth Sunday in Lent to spend time with their families. In America, Mother’s Day is a relatively modern and secular event (dating from 1908) that was launched as a celebration of Mothers themselves. Both are jolly good reasons to send your Mother a gift hamper, as far as we’re concerned, so feel free to acknowledge them both!
