A Guide to Mother’s Day 2021

This year, Mother’s Day falls on Sunday the 14th of March in the UK. After the year we’ve had, many of us have reconnected, grown closer and developed a deeper appreciation for our family. So this year, more than ever, we should celebrate our dear mothers.  

Why is Mother’s day celebrated?

Mother’s day is celebrated each year on different days all over the globe. This is because each country derives the celebration from unique moments in history, with their own cultural significance. In the UK, our Mother’s Day is more traditionally known as Mothering Sunday, which began as a church service held on the fourth Sunday of Lent to celebrate motherhood and rebirth. Now, the celebration is more closely linked to family values, reuniting children who have flown the nest with their mothers for the day. 

This year is a little different as many of us will not be with our mother, but that doesn’t mean we can’t show your love. Follow our guide on celebrating Mother’s Day in 2021:

How can I make Mother’s Day special?

Whether you’re with your mum physically or not, we can still make it special for her. With the closing of restaurants, this lends you the chance to prepare her something delicious which is far more personal and will certainly be appreciated. If you can’t be there in person, organise a delivery with a local cafe or restaurant and arrange a phone or video call to dine alongside each other. 

Later in the day you could watch a Mother’s Day Movie together. With the developments of online apps such as Teleparty from Netflix, you can all watch the same movie together from different living rooms, with a sidebar group chat.

How can I surprise my mother?

Surprise your mother with a personal gift. You could put together a Mother’s Day gift box with carefully selected items such as self-care, bath and body, or luxurious food. When ordering presents online, look out for gift services. At Czech & Speake we offer the option of complimentary gift wrap at checkout, as well as including a personal message, hand written by our team. Or you could go with a classic and send her Mother’s Day flowers.
