Mother's Day Gifts...again?

Only a month or so ago you would have noticed us talking about Mother's Day (Sunday 3rd April), yet here we are blogging about it again already!

This is because the majority of countries around the world actually celebrate Mothering Sunday on the 2nd Sunday in May & this year that means Sunday 8th May (yes this Sunday!) The list below shows all the countries who celebrate in May, whereas in Ireland & the UK we celebrate on the 4th Sunday of Lent:

* Anguilla
* Aruba
* Australia
* Austria
* Bahamas
* Barbados
* Bangladesh
* Belgium
* Belize
* Bermuda
* Bonaire
* Brazil
* Canada
* Chile
* China
* Colombia
* Cuba
* Croatia
* Curaçao
* Czech Republic
* Denmark
* Ecuador
* Estonia
* Finland
* Germany
* Greece
* Grenada
* Honduras
* Hong Kong
* Iceland
* Italy
* Jamaica
* Japan
* Latvia
* Malta
* Malaysia
* Netherlands
* New Zealand
* Peru
* Philippines
* Puerto Rico
* Singapore
* Slovakia
* South Africa
* Suriname
* Switzerland
* Taiwan
* Trinidad and Tobago
* Turkey
* United States
* Uruguay
* Venezuela
* Zimbabwe

Of course there are countries who celebrate at other times besides March/April or May. In Thailand, for example, it is on 12th August, as this is Queen Sirikit Kitiyakara's birthday!

If your mum is living in Ireland or Britain then why not celebrate the May Mother's Day by sending her a lovely card & pressie. It is also very handy if you forgot to send something on the UK date! We have lots of Mother's Day gift baskets to choose from & each is sent with your personalised gift card message.

We can also deliver to Europe from as little as €22.99 remember. We noticed a few European countries (like Belgium & Germany) also celebrate Mother's Day on May 8th, so there is still time to send your Mothers Day gift today.

Remember...Mum's the word!
