Mamma Mia! Mother’s Day, Sunday 31st March

Mum. A word that says home, love, laughter, support. Sure, you do the occasional eye roll when mum states the obvious: it’s cold, you look tired or that lawn could do with a mow. But she is a constant. The one there when you need something – anything – mum never lets you down. However she can help, she will.

Mother’s Day is celebrated at different times the world over. In the US Mother’s Day is on the second Sunday in May. Mother’s Day in the UK is linked to Easter and began as a day when people would visit their ‘mother’ church. It was a kind of homecoming and what do you do when you haven’t seen your mum in a while? You show up with some flowers and give her the best gift of all – your time. In America, Mother’s Day began as a celebration of mums in 1914 after a campaign by Anna Jarvis. Other countries adopted the same date as a day to acknowledge mothers.

Mum’s the word

Making mum feel special is what Mother’s Day is made of. Keep it simple or splash out, all that matters is seeing her smile and showing how much you care.

From she sheds to summer houses, watering cans to wheelbarrows, planters to patio furniture, there is something in store for your mum at John Bright’s. No matter how big or small the gift, lets celebrate mums everywhere.

She’s always been there. She’s the one who got you up for school, got you to where you needed to be and well, just got you.
