When Is Mother's Day? How Did It All Start?

In Australia, Mother's Day will be celebrated on Sunday, May 12th 2024.

The celebration of Mother's Day is now over a century old. The very first Mother's Day was held by Anna Jarvis from Philadelphia, USA. On May 12th, 1907, Anna held a memorial service for her late mother in Grafton, West Virginia. By 1914, almost every U.S. state observed Mother's day, and the tradition soon spread around the globe.

Does Mother's Day Change Every Year In Australia?

Mother's Day is celebrated on the second Sunday of May every year. So, naturally, the date is slightly different each year. Mother's Day is always celebrated on a Sunday to give families lots of time to bond.

When is Mother's Day 2023?

Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and the U.S. will celebrate Mother's day on May 12th, 2024. The UK will celebrate Mother's Day on Sunday, March 19th, 2023.

Is Mother's Day A Public Holiday?

Unfortunately, Mother's Day isn't a public holiday in Australia. However, you can still make Mother's Day special by getting Mum the perfect present that she'll love and spending some quality time with her.

How To Send A Gift Delivery To Australia From Overseas On Mother's Day?

If you're living overseas and won't see your dear Mum on Mother's Day, you can still make her feel cherished by buying her the ultimate gift and having it shipped straight to her door with a sweet card that will bring a smile to her face.

At The Hamper Emporium, we take care of the packaging, shipping, and fuss for you. Simply select a hamper that will make Mum happy, and we'll make sure it gets to her in time for Mother's day.

What Should I Do For My Mum On Mother's Day?

Think about what she would want. You can look through our Mother's Day range for inspiration, but you are the one who knows your Mum best. We recommend that you write a heartfelt Mother's Day card and get her a gift that will delight her with your thoughtfulness.

The best Mothers Day ideas come from the heart. We suggest making Mum a delicious breakfast or lunch (and cleaning up!), getting her the perfect Mother's day gift, and spending some quality time with her. You can take a walk, go out for dinner, play a game, see a movie, or take part in one of her hobbies.

If you aren't able to see your Mum on Mother's Day, you can shop online at The Hamper Emporium, and we'll send her present straight to her door.

What To Get For A Mum Who Has Everything?

We all know a Mum who has it all. She has cupboards full of kitchen gadgets, plenty of lotions and potions, and a large collection of hobby items.

Going to a gift store and picking a Mothers Day gift at random may be easy, but given that you're spending your hard earned money, you probably want her to have something she'll cherish long-term.

So, what should you get her?

We believe a hamper is one of the best gifts for mothers who have everything. Hampers give Mum a curated collection of gifts that she can enjoy while celebrating her special day.

The Hamper Emporium offers a selection of hampers for every type of Mum – stylish Mums, outdoorsy Mums, new Mums, older Mothers, gourmet Mums, foodie Mums, and Mums who love a sneaky little sweet treat. Our hampers will help you make 2023 the year of the best Mother's Day yet.

What Do You Get For Her First Mother's Day?

If you're shopping for a new Mum on her first Mother's Day, you have a world of great gifts to choose from.

If she doesn't get much time for herself, pamper her with a self-care hamper. Or, if she loves a tasty treat, get her a hamper that includes gourmet foods and wines.

If you don't know what to buy, we recommend choosing a hamper that includes a keepsake that will remind her of her first Mother's day in future years. Here are some new Mum hampers she might like:

What Do You Give Someone On Their First Mother's Day Without Their Mother?

The first Mother's Day without Mum is a really tough occasion. If your special lady is still choosing to celebrate Mother's Day with her own children, a thoughtful hamper with a bottle of bubbly is a great way to show that you're here for her through thick and thin while still celebrating her as a Mum.

If you don't want to overwhelm her on a day that's already really tough, we recommend a gift voucher. Then, she can choose her own Mother's Day gift when she's ready.

What Should You Get Lonely Mothers For Mother's Day?

If your Mum or Grandma doesn't have a lot of loved ones in her life, we recommend giving her a hamper that helps her celebrate with the community she has (no matter how small). One such hamper is the Made to Share Cheese Hamper.

If your Mum or Grandma prefers her own company, we recommend the Luxury Tea and Relaxation Hamper.
