This Mother’s Day, a gift as unique as she is

by Sue Williams
17 February 2010

For many people, Mother’s Day is a chance to say thank you: breakfast in bed, a card and the obligatory bunch of flowers. But the roots of this special day lie in the 17th century, when the fourth Sunday in Lent was decreed a date for families to travel home and take a day’s respite from fasting and host a feast in honour of the mothers in the home.

Today, the history of this special occasion is largely forgotten and with many families now scattered around the country, sending a card and flowers seem to be the de rigeur way of ticking the box and avoiding the sense of guilt.
This year, plan ahead and consider a gift that’s far more imaginative.

This Mother’s Day, why not select a favourite novel or collection of poetry, beautifully rendered in pink leather with a bespoke inscription on the cover – a unique and original gift that shows her just how much she means to you on that special day and every day.
