Who remembers the corny hit single Mama by the Spice Girls? Of course you do, and with Mother’s Day just around the corner, we couldn’t resist having a cheeky nostalgic listen here at Kidult HQ. Right after we were finished being transported back to a time when scrunchies were cool, we started thinking about what we will treat our own Mama’s to this Mother’s Day.
Read on for our gender-neutral Mother’s Day gift recommendations AND details on our gift to you – a Mother’s Day sale! We are posting this early so that you have plenty of time to get your orders in, so don’t panic!
Time to Show Mum Some Love!
Mother’s Day, or more formally, Mothering Sunday, is an annual celebration held to honour the mum’s and maternal figures we have in our lives. Did you know that originally it was a religious holiday in the UK? Like most religious festivals, the meaning has changed over time, and the day evolved into a special occasion for kids to honour and give gifts to their mums.
In line with the Kidult ethos and philosophy, we think Mother’s Day is a great opportunity to teach kids about family diversity; families come in all sorts of shapes and sizes! Some families might have a double celebration with two mummies, some might not have a mum. Some might give gifts to a special aunt or grandmother. Basically, it’s a day for family, and showing your love to those who raised you!
When is Mother’s Day 2018?
The date changes each year in the UK, as Mother’s Day falls on the fourth Sunday during the period of Lent. You know, that period in the year where we try to give up certain foods or bad habits for the days leading up to Easter…. don’t remind us!
This year the UK will celebrate all things yummy mummy on Sunday, March 11.
Put the date in your diary and start plotting how you can spoil the most important lady in your life! Remember, if you have plans to take Mum out for a delicious meal, or your little ones are taking you out, most restaurants are absolutely chock a block on Mothering Sunday. Avoid disappointment and book your favourite eatery now!
Also; don’t get dates confused with our friends across the pond in the US, who celebrate Mother’s Day on May 13. Now that really would put you in the bad books!
