Mothering Sunday is only just around the corner here in the UK. A special day when we celebrate all that the special women in our lives do for us. You might be wondering how you can include your pets in the celebrations. Here we look at a few things you could do on this special day and also suggest a few gift ideas:
Mothering Sunday Day’s Out
1. Go for a Walk
Dog walking in springtime is one of our favourite things to do. The countryside is awash with new life; birds building new nests, bees buzzing and other life springing from the landscape. What better way to spend a Mother’s Day morning or afternoon than out on a walk? The perfect way to include all the family, including your pets!
2. Mother’s Day Lunch
Mothering Sunday lunch is a must! If you’d like to take your dog along, there are a number of pet friendly pubs in the UK. We wrote an article last year about some of the Top Pet Friendly Pubs. Give it a read before you make a reservation!
3. Pamper Session
Why not book your dog into their favourite groomers whilst you and your mum go off to the spa? A pamper session is the perfect way to treat your mum on Mother’s day!
Mother’s Day Gift Ideas
1. Flowers for Mum
Flowers are a classic Mother’s Day gift. A beautiful way to brighten the home; what Mum doesn’t love a bouquet of her favourite fragrant blooms? If your mum has cats or dogs, do think about flowers that are animal safe. Certain types, such as daffodils and lilies, are poisonous to pets and are best to avoid. Our Poisonous Springtime Plants blog post, highlights some of the flowers to avoid if you have pets. If you’re still unsure, Interflora have created a collection of pet safe bouquets, which will make gorgeous gifts for special Mums.
2. An L&L Present
If your Mum is a canine lover, then one of our dog themed gifts could make the ideal present. We've carefully paw-picked a range of gifts in our Mother's day collection that we know your dog would pick out for mum if they could shop!
