When is Mother's Day?

Mother’s Day is celebrated globally as the main day of the year where all the focus is on the amazing maternal figures in our lives. For many, that stretches out to mothers, grandmothers, aunties and wives. Mother’s Day isn’t just about celebrating those you are related to, but also anyone who touched your life in a way that shaped you into the person you are today. Although that maternal figure might look different for everyone, we are certain that every single person has a woman to thank for raising them, shaping them, and loving them.

When is Mother’s Day 2021?

The day Mother’s Day lands on depends on the country you’re living in. For much of the world (including Australia), Mother’s Day lands on the second Sunday of May. That means Mother’s Day 2021 is on the 9th of May. However, if you aren’t able to visit your mum (or other magnificent maternal figures) on the day, we’re positive that they will be just as grateful to celebrate it on any other day of the year.

What do I buy Mum for Mother’s Day?

With Mother’s Day on the approach, the questions of what to do and what to buy are starting to bubble. While we acknowledge that every mother is different, we know that everyone can’t deny the beauty of delicate natural roses. With that in mind, you could gift your mum some
long stemmed roses or some red roses and chocolate delivered to her door to bring some sweetness to Mother’s Day 2021.

What do I have to do for Mother’s Day?

For a lot of places around the world, Mother’s Day celebrations still look different to the usual, with distance between families harder to travel, and hugs still a risk many cannot afford to take. There are never any “must do’s” for Mother’s Day, however, in this time where many people are feeling lonely and 

isolated, we strongly encourage you to do what you can to remind your maternal figures just how loved and appreciated they are. 

We’ve thought up some fun ideas that you can do even if you’re separated for Mother’s Day 2021:

  • Organise a family Zoom call
  • For many mothers, having a family reunion is all they dream about. If your family hasn’t been able to get together physically for a while, and can’t do it on Mother’s Day either, then a Zoom call will be a great way to catch up and spend some time together. You can all order pizza and pretend you’re having a family dinner, or you could make it fun and get everyone to make a short presentation on their favourite thing and have a laugh together. No matter how you run your Mother’s Day Zoom call, we’re sure Mum will love it! 

  • Play games online together
  • Playing board games and card games together is something most families enjoy doing, and there’s no reason you can’t continue the tradition just because you’re catching up virtually. If you’re all a bit older, play Cards Against Humanity online (definitely not one for the kids) or online poker, or if you’ve got a larger age gap, look into online trivia games! Trivia is always great for families of all ages. Have fun!

    Get Mother’s Day Roses delivered

    If you’re worried about not being able to bring flowers to mum this Mother’s Day, don’t forget you get flowers delivered to her door! There’s nothing that says “I love you” more than a box of red roses or block of chocolate! Gift mum some long stemmed roses to encourage her to wind down and relax, or some red roses and chocolate delivered to her door to bring some sweetness to Mother’s Day 2021. 

    No matter what you get up to on Mother’s Day, make sure you write her a card (whether physical or virtual), that let’s her know how much you care. Don’t know what to write on a Mother’s Day card? Spend some time telling her every little thing you are grateful for. She’ll be smiling for days.


    Mother’s Day 2021 might look very different to previous Mother’s Days, but that doesn’t mean it’s not equally as special. Get flowers delivered to your mum’s doorstep so that she can be reminded of how grateful you are for every time she catches a glimpse of them on her dining table.
