Mothers have been celebrated for centuries – and rightly so, they are awesome! Celebrations of motherhood can be traced back to the ancient Greeks and Romans, who held festivities in honour of the mother goddesses Rhea and Cybele.

The “modern” Mother’s Day that we know started as Mothering Sunday in the 1600s in England. It was originally a day for Christians to visit their 'mother church', but over time has evolved into a more secular celebration where children give gifts to their mothers, as a sign of appreciation for all that they do for them.

30% of people in the UK say their mum is the most inspirational person in their life, and 80% of people give their mum a card on Mother’s Day at the very least.
