Mother’s Day 2021 – How to make Mother’s Day marvellous
Next up in the lockdown occasion calendar is Mother’s Day! We hope you were able to share some special moments with your loved one/s this Valentine’s Day and enjoyed our Lockdown Love blog – but now it’s time to turn our attentions to all the brilliant mothers and mother figures out there with our Mother’s Day 2021 blog – full of marvellous gifts and cards to make their day super special!
This year’s Mother’s Day falls exactly 1 month after Valentine’s Day. So you should have had time to fill your heart back up by now. A full heart of love from a happy son, daughter or pet – it’s what every mum wants… and deserves! Lockdown has made it difficult just to pop round and give them a hug. Or take them to their favourite tea rooms for an afternoon tea. Or maybe your old dear is still a dancefloor groover that loves nothing more than to throw shapes with their children – you’re never too old! Don’t worry if you haven’t clue what to get them this year. We’ve gathered together a selection of our favourite cards and gifts guaranteed to get you some brownie points from mum.
Why is Mother’s Day celebrated?
Well apart from to dedicate a day especially to the amazing mothers out there, Mother’s Day has an interesting history. Astonishingly, Mother’s Day celebrations date back as far as the ancient Greeks. They would celebrate Rhea, the Mother of the Gods and Goddesses, every spring with festivals of worship. The month of March isn’t just for modern celebrations. The Romans also celebrated a mother Goddess, Cybele, every March as far back as 250BC. Mothering Sunday itself has been celebrated on the fourth Sunday in Lent, in the UK and Ireland, since the 16th Century. Now that’s some mother-loving history facts right there!

Discover the best way to experience chocolate, how to taste it, when to taste it, and what to look out for, as well as learning fun and exciting facts.

Mother’s Day 2021 – It’s a fine time for wine
March 14th is a fine time for wine! Whether you are raising a glass in spirit or over zoom, make sure you check out The Brighton Wine Co.. Their mission is “making sure good people never drink bad wine”. We think they have the best range of hand-picked wines in Sussex and a super speedy delivery.
