Mother’s Day gift ideas – 15th March

Our British Mother’s Day always falls on the fourth Sunday of Lent unlike other parts of the world when it falls in May.

If you didn’t know, and I certainly didn’t, the reason why it is more traditionally known as Mothering Sunday is that it was originally a Christian celebration where people returned to their Mother Church to worship. It was often the only day of the year that those in service were given a day off to visit their home church, usually with their own mothers and family. Children would pick wild flowers along the way to place in the church or give to their mothers and eventually, the religious tradition evolved into the secular tradition of giving gifts to mothers.

There are some lovely, bespoke Mother’s Day cards on Not on the High Street and Scribbler. As well as Bombus and Handmade cards by KD.

I absolutely adore these Jenny Crayon prints. If you haven’t checked out her website then you must. So unique, beautiful and absolutely brilliant. When I last said on here that I really wanted something, it was gifted to me as an anniversary present. So, James if you’re reading, I really want one of the family portrait ones!
