Mothering Sunday (UK) Sunday 15 March, 2015
Mother's Day (USA, Canada and Australia) Sunday 10 May, 2015

Mother's Day, or Mothering Sunday, as it is known in the UK is a special day put aside to honour mothers and all women in a mother type role, such as grandmothers, stepmothers and mothers-in-law. Many people make a special effort to visit their mother, taking cards and gifts. They might take her out to lunch or for high tea or cocktails. For people who can't visit their mother in person, the tradition is to send a card or present to her. 

Typical Mother's Day gifts are treats that a mother might not buy for herself. Luxurious bath and body products, richly scented candles, lovely perfumes, flowers and chocolates are all popular.
