With Mother’s Day approaching this weekend (hopefully a timely reminder if you have somehow managed to forget!) now is the time to get your thinking cap on to find a gift that you’re happy to hand over to Mum!
On a personal note, as a mum to two daughters in their 20’s, I find myself saying to them that the tradition of Mother’s Day is about a bunch of flowers – Not a bouquet, but a simple bunch of Spring flowers or a small chocolate gift. The most important thing to me is having some time to spend with them.
They always think I’m being sentimental, but the tradition of Mother’s Day started way back when girls lived away from home in service to a wealthy family. They were given one day off a year to go home and visit their own family, so it wasn’t about expensive gifts but rather the gift of time.
Here at Choc affair we’ve created a Mother’s Day range of chocolate gifts, centered around our delicious Raspberry and Rose flavoured chocolate, a really popular choice with Mums. Pretty florals and pinks filled with delicious chocolates, the perfect treat for Mum this Mother’s Day.
