Mothering Sunday started during the 16th century when our ancestors used to return on the 4th Sunday in Lent for a service to their 'mother church' - the main church or cathedral of the area.

 

Eventually, the religious tradition evolved into the Mothering Sunday secular tradition of giving gifts to mothers. Although it's often called Mothers' Day, it has no connection with the American festival of that name. Traditionally, Mothering Sunday was a day when children, mainly daughters, who had gone to work as domestic servants were given a day off to visit their mother and family.

 

The tradition has stood the test of time and is a popular and well celebrated day when many Mothers enjoy a little ‘time-off’ from their day to day routines.

 

Many will choose to take their Mother out to lunch or to cook for her, some will help with the household chores. Flowers, chocolates, fragrance and other gifts are often presented to thank mum for everything that she does. But, most of all, it is a time when families come together and spend the day celebrating mum.

 

There’s no finer way of showing your love and appreciation for your mum than by choosing a beautiful piece of jewellery or giftware to present to her on this special day. Here are a few of our suggestions for perfect Mothering Sunday gifts:
