Don't forget Mother's Day!

Don't forget Mother's Day! Mother's Day is often one of those confusing and overlooked celebrations - not least because our dear friends across the pond have it on a separate day to us here in the UK. We celebrate Mothering Sunday on the fourth Sunday of Lent; exactly three weeks before Easter Sunday. Of course, Easter itself jumps around from year-to-year - so this year, Mother's Day falls on March 6th in the UK. Over in the US, they haven't quite got the level of confusion to contend with as Mother's Day always falls on May 8th.

With Spring round the corner, you could do a lot worse than perusing for your ideal gift for your mum this year. We've got a great selection of picnic baskets, hampers and blankets that make up an ideal selection of gift suggestions for mums. The sunshine is coming!

Here's our quick shortlist of potential gift ideas for Mother's Day 2016:
