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
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!
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!
Pamper Session – Why not book your dog into his 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
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.
Pet Themed Gifts– If your Mum is a canine lover, then one of our dog themed homewares could make the ideal present. We have a selection of mugs, tote bags and notebooks that make lovely gift ideas. We have a wide selection of home accessories from Sophie Allport, Fenella Smith and Sweet William as well as our very own L&L designs.
