In the United Kingdom, Mothering Sunday is celebrated on the fourth Sunday of Lent (this year, it’s Sunday 19th March) and is often referred to as ‘Mother’s Day’. The name is thought to come from as long ago as the 16th century when people would return to their “mother church” for a special service. Over time, the day has evolved into an opportunity to honour mothers and motherhood across the world. Here are some ideas to help you show your mother love this Mother’s Day.
A love letter to mum
Does your mum love to read? Why not write her a heartfelt letter or card telling her how much she means to you and listing all the things you love about her? You could even get a professional to pen her a special poem.
A song about mum
Some artists offer a song-writing service; you give them some personal details about her, her likes, dislikes, and idiosyncrasies and they can create a song just for your mum.
A day to remember
Spoil her the whole day long. Cook her favourite meal, take her somewhere special like a gardens or historical house, or take her to the cinema.
Something unique, just like her
Bespoke jewellers can create jewellery or a sentimental keepsake for your mama that is as unique as she is.
A little R&R
Pamper her like a queen. Treat her to a spa day or massage to help her relax and unwind.
Get practical and help your mum with chores or tasks she has been putting off. This might be organising the garage or cleaning the gutters.
Create a photo album or scrapbook with pictures and memories of special times you have shared. Or spend the day creating one together.
A break from it all
You could make a grand gesture and take her on a trip or weekend getaway to a place she has always wanted to visit.
Remember, the most important thing is to let her know how much she is loved and appreciated.
