Just when we thought Mothering Sunday was over for the year (in March), along comes Mother's Day of the international variety!
The majority of countries around the world actually celebrate Mother's Day in May, some on the first Sunday in May (Lithuania etc) and most on the second Sunday in May. Our lovely colleague Roma is from Lithuania & so was busy arranging her mums gift last week - probably those Clark's shoes her mum loves so much!
With many of our customers being dotted throughout the world we tend to have another mini Mother's Day in May. As they now celebrate it in May they send their mum "back home" in the UK or Ireland a gift on the May Mother's Day date instead of in March. Because of this we make all our Mother's Day Gift Baskets available to purchase at this time as well. Lynne was back up at the flower wholesalers again in preparation for this weeks orders, as our most popular gift baskets for mums on this occasion tend to contain the pretty flowering plant component.
Here are a few examples of gift baskets perfect for mums. You can see the full range here
Please remember UK couriers do not deliver on Sundays, so we are scheduling most to arrive on Friday 9th instead (which also happens to be my mums birthday!) You can also upgrade to the Saturday service although unfortunately the couriers charge extra for this, but sure our mums are worth it aren't they!
