Mothering Sunday has been going for about 400 years and is believed to have started in Britain when young people, who worked away from home, often working long hours, were given a day off by their employers, in order that they could return to their ‘mother church’ where they had been baptised, to spend time with their families.
Today Mother’s Day is still going strong and if you’re looking for that perfect gift for mum, here’s some ideas to help you out!
