Now commonly known as Mother's day, the 4th Sunday in lent was originally known as Mothering Sunday. As far back as the 16th Century, Christians would return to their "mother church", the church or cathedral in their home town or village.
Over the centuries children as young as 10 were sent away to work in domestic service so Mothering Sunday became a holiday giving the opportunity for children to spend the day with their mothers. Children would pick wildflowers and Simnel cakes were made, breaking the Lenten fast.
Thankfully our children are no longer sent away to work in the UK, but Mother's Day is still the perfect excuse to bring families together. Whatever age your mother is she deserves to be spoilt. We've hand-picked some gifts, cards and wrap combinations to help you celebrate the most important woman in your life.
