Mothers Day

Mother's Day is fast approaching, falling this year on Sunday 2nd March – so get your skates on and shush……’mum's the word’. Say thank you with fragrances, a personalised gift or a selection of cosmetics on this special day.

Mothers Day or Mothering Sunday falls on the fourth Sunday of Lent - three weeks before Easter Sunday. The celebration is believed to have originated from the 16th century Christian practice of visiting one's mother church annually, meaning most mothers would be reunited with their children on this day. It is now principally used to celebrate and give thanks for mothers, although it is still recognized in the historical sense by some churches.
