Mothering Sunday falls on Sunday 27th March 2022 here in the UK and we have a selection of Mother’s Day gifts to suit all the mums out there.
Why do we celebrate Mother’s Day?Around the world, many countries will celebrate Mother’s Day. A day to show all the mothers that we appreciate all the amazing things that they do.A celebration of what being a mum means the material bonds and motherhood. Without our mothers, we wouldn’t be here today.Even before a child is born, the connection that a mother has to her unborn child is unlike any other. We have already started building the incredible bond way before the baby has arrived in the world.Dating back to the 16th century, Mothering Sunday began its story as a Catholic and Protestant Christian holiday. People would visit their ‘mother’ church, a church where they were baptized or attended when they were growing up. This was known as Laetare Sunday. The fourth Sunday of Lent.Possibly the only day in the year when families could get together and children would stop off on their way to church to pick flowers and make beautiful bouquets for their mothers.This soon became a tradition and a way of giving gifts. Such an iconic day seemed to fade out through the 20th century until the 1950s.Businesses and wholesale trades saw a gap in the market and began the huge lucrative trading opportunity that we see today. A way of making money from such an iconic event. There are places around the world such as Canada, New Zealand and Mexico that celebrate Mother’s Day on Sunday 10th May.
So quite some time after the UK. Children would make presents to give to their mothers.
A day to show appreciationWhatever date Mother’s Day is held around the world, the day symbolizes the same thing – to show mothers how much they are appreciated. Of course, every day should be a day to show mothers how much we appreciate them and what they do.Having a special day to celebrate has very much become a tradition like many yearly events, such as Valentine’s Day, Father’s Day and Easter Sunday.
Mother’s Day giftsEveryone loves to spoil their mum. After all, she is the one who has brought us into the world and along with our dads, she has given us the life skills that we need as adults.
There is no shortage of ideas when it comes to treating mums on such a special day. Traditionally, flowers are purchased but let’s take a look at some other lovely gift ideas that our mums will appreciate.
Perfumed jewellery makes a lovely gift for mum. Take a look at perfumedjewelry.com
Perfume can be a hard gift to buy someone but when it comes to family, most of us know what type of fragrance our mum wears. If not, a quick sneak inside the wardrobe to check out what bottles she has sitting on the shelf will answer the question.
Why choose to buy perfume for a gift?
Perfume has always been a great gift to give someone as it’s a personal item and we often wait for a bottle to be bought as a gift or a visit to the Duty Free shop rather than purchasing it for ourselves.
Fragrances can be costly so here are some alternatives to the designer labels. Read about FM
Another great gift is a wax melt burner with perfumed cubes. These items make a lovely gift and if you’re looking for a room scent that has a long-lasting fragrance then wax melts are perfect. Safe to use, elegant and affordable.
Pillow mist spray
New mothers in particular never get enough sleep. I remember the days all too well! Sometimes it can take forever to drift off even when you are feeling exhausted from lack of shut-eye.
A gentle spray of a pillow mist can help relax the mind, switch off from the day as you breathe in the calming fragrance notes and drift off for a peaceful night’s sleep.
So many households have scented candles these days as they are so popular. They can help you to relax at the end of a long day as well as give a wonderful atmosphere to any room when they are lit.
With so many candles to choose from, we are spoilt for choice. If your mum likes a particular scent, we have matching candles to bring any room to life.
Room fragrance sticks
These make a lovely gift when candles are not an option or if mum prefers a delicate room scent without the naked flame.
Placed in any room in the house, the fragrance sticks come in three scented fragrances for women as well as three unisex scents. Perfect for any room in the house.
They have a long-lasting fragrance up to 70 days and come in a very elegant design to suit any home.
There has been huge popularity when it comes to solid perfumes and a wonderful alternative to using sprays.
They are ideal for carrying luggage for travelling without the worry of spillages or required liquid amounts to be accepted through customs.
They also work well if you find that spray perfume is a bit overwhelming or your skin isn’t keen on liquid fragrances.
Wardrobe fragrancesEvery wardrobe will benefit from a hanging wardrobe fragrance. Fresh-smelling clothes that leave a hint of fragrance in the air whilst hanging up and a fresh smell as you open the door.With a convenient handle to hang on the clothing rail in between your clothes, these fragrances will last around 3 months before needing to be replaced.Take a look at our review
Everyone can make use of a body lotion and a scented one is even better. Our skin is prone to dryness during the summer with the high temperatures as well as in the winter when the temperature drops outside and we have the heating on indoors. It’s good practice to moisturise after a bath or shower as the hot water can dry the skin as well.
An added benefit of having moisturized skin is that your perfume/ cologne will last much longer too. Skin preparation has so many benefits.
Every mum deserves a shower gel to make her skin feel soft, moisturized and revitalised after a long day. Cooking, household chores and family errands can leave the skin feeling tight and dry.
Mums spend a lot of time on their feet so what better way to treat her than with an exfoliating foot peel. This clever product helps to regenerate damaged epidermis and moisturizes and rebuilds the skin. It effectively removes calluses and contains extracts of honey, pear, passion, lemon, fruit, pineapple, grape and opuntia.
If she uses it once a month, Mum will notice beautifully soft skin and summer-ready feet for the warmer season.
If you would like any advice on what to buy for your mum to make her feel special, I’d love to hear from you.
