How to create the perfect Mother's Day gift - part one

How to create the perfect Mother's Day gift - part one

Christmas might only feel like yesterday, but somehow we’re nearly in March which means means Mother’s Day is fast approaching.

It can be a tricky one to remember as the date actually differs slightly each year. It’s all to do with Easter - in the UK Mothering Sunday always falls on the fourth Sunday of Lent and three weeks before Easter Sunday (chocolate fans take note - Easter falls on April 1 this year).

So the all-important date for your diary this year is Sunday March 11 - it’s the annual opportunity to show appreciation for your mum and mother figures such as grandmothers, stepmothers and mothers-in-law.

In other words it’s highly likely your dear ma might be expecting a gesture to show your gratitude for everything she does for you during the year. A lie-in won’t go amiss, or treating her to a nice meal can be a sweet way to take the burden off while spending some quality time together. Cards and gifts are, of course, also popular ways to show your mum how much she means to you - especially if you can’t be together on the day. If you’re a new mother yourself, you’ll know how valuable any me-time is amid the chaos of juggling the constant demands of a newborn - perhaps a nap or a long bath is all you’d like this year.

When showing your gratitude is the ultimate aim, though, we think you can’t go far wrong with a personalised print. Our range of designs are the perfect way to let the recipient know exactly what you cherish about your relationship. In this two-part series we’ll be highlighting the different ideas available for the perfect Mothering Sunday present so you can order in plenty of time to have your gift ready in time for March 11!
