It is almost the 10th of May and that means Mother’s Day! A day when every mum or grandmother is put into the lime light and is traditionally spoilt with breakfast in bed, flowers, handmade presents if the kids are still small, or with some nice presents and a bit of extra TLC to make her feel extra special, appreciated and loved. The habit to celebrate Mother’s Day has been going on for many years, but how exactly did Mother’s Day come to be? The ancient Greeks already followed a Mother Cult: a day of ceremonies for Cybele of Rhea, de Great Mother of Gods. But the Mother’s Day the way we know it first came to be in the USA in May 1908, and eventually blew over to Australia in 1925, where it has been celebrated every May ever since.
For florists it is often the busiest day of the year. But also other specialist retailers make sure to get a few fingers in the pie by putting together a special Mother’s Day catalogue or brochure. For example, My Chemist and the Body Shop publish a special catalogue full of the loveliest scents and fragrance sets, to give you a few suggestions of what you can surprise your magnificent mum with. Of course some nice jewellery from Lucardi or Pandora will always be a traditional Mother’s Day gift idea. And if you are looking for a more practical gift to spoil the sweetest mum in the world, Winning Appliances or Appliances Online bring out a special Mother’s Day catalogue full of interesting offers on kitchen appliances, pan sets, styling sets and home decoration to name but a few. In order to give you a clearer overview of what there is on offer on Mother’s Day, we have collected all the brochures with special Mother’s Day offers under the category “Mother’s day.”
The “no time to go shopping” excuse is no longer valid in this day and age. Pretty much all stores have a web shop nowadays, which is accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Moreover, there are a number of web shops such as Kmart, Target, BigW and Amcal that publish a Mother’s Day brochure with many big and small gift ideas that you could spoil mum with. So why not make this day a feast for mum, because every mum deserves it!
