Now Valentine’s Day is done and dusted, most of us will be turning our attention to the next big occasion - Mother’s Day. It’s nearing that time of year when we take the day to give thanks and appreciate everything our mums do for us, and what better way to do so than with treating her to a bit of luxury? While some of us will resort to cooking or going out for a lovely Sunday lunch, others will resort to a big bunch of beautiful blooms, but sometimes it’s nice to think outside the box and opt for something a little different when it comes to your Mother’s Day gift ideas. Here at Bedroom Athletics, we believe that everyone is entitled to enjoy a self-care day once in a while, and mums are definitely no exception. That’s why we think our range of luxury slippers, dressing gowns and loungewear will make wonderful Mother’s Day gifts this year - our wonderfully indulgent products are the perfect accompaniment to a little pampering, or even just a lazy day. So, we’ve put together a few Mother’s Day gift ideas that she’s sure to appreciate even more than the usual flowers and chocolates!
First of all though, we thought we’d take a look at why we celebrate Mother’s Day. It’s an occasion that we celebrate every year, but many of us have no idea where it actually came from. So, let’s take a look into how Mother’s Day originated here in the UK.
To put it simply, we celebrate Mother’s Day to appreciate and give thanks to our mothers. Originally referred to as Mothering Sunday here in the UK, the initial origin of Mother’s Day in this country dates back to the 16th century. It’s been celebrated on the fourth Sunday of Lent, but in some countries such as the US, it’s celebrated on the second Sunday in May. While we use the terms interchangeably, Mother’s Day in the US and Mothering Sunday in the UK actually have different origins. Here in the UK, the occasion initially started as a religious day to give thanks to the Virgin Mary, and required people to visit the main church in their local area, known as the ‘mother church.’ Over the 16th century, Mothering Sunday became a widely celebrated event, where people would return home to visit their local church, making it an occasion for families to reunite and bring offerings of thanks. However, around the 1930s it began to get less popular in Europe. This was until WWII, when the Americans and Canadians felt the crucial need to give thanks to their mothers while they were away at war, thus still celebrating the day. As a result, the British began to follow suit, leading Mother’s Day to be a key holiday on the UK calendar to this very day.
When it comes to Mother’s Day gifts, the tradition was usually flowers. This is because workers would pick wildflowers on their way home to visit their mothers. Of course, flowers are still a popular choice of gift even today, but with modern gifts now extending to jewellery, fragrance, and even clothing, we think this Mother’s Day is a great excuse to spoil Mum with some of our luxurious products here at Bedroom Athletics. Why not take a look at our selection of Mother’s Day gift ideas to get a little inspiration?
If your mum is constantly on the go, you can guarantee that she’ll definitely appreciate a pair of our fabulous Bedroom Athletics slippers. Our Kate Harris Tweed mule slippers (£55) are a fabulous gift and they’re the perfect indulgent treat for tired feet. Available in a selection of stylish colours combined with the classic Harris Tweed design, these luxurious mule slippers are crafted with Grade A Australian sheepskin for the ultimate comfort. Plus with the firm, durable non-slip soles, they’re perfect for everyday wear around the house.
You can even add a luxury finishing touch with one of our branded gift boxes for just £3.95, as they’re the perfect size for our ladies mule slippers. They come with tissue paper lining as well as a neat ribbon to complete the look, making your gift just that little bit extra special!
Of course, we can’t mention our slippers selection without a nod to our best-selling Marilyn slipper boots, perfect for keeping those feet extra toasty. We just love the gorgeous faux fur lining which is just heavenly to sink your feet into after a long day, and these iconic boots come in a range of colours so you can choose the best option to suit Mum’s style. At just £25 too, they’re a complete steal - you could even treat yourself to a pair!
If you fancy a modern twist on our classic Marilyn, why not go for our Monroe slipper boots instead? Still featuring all the elements of the Marilyn that make our slipper boots so luxurious, the twist comes in the form of a contrasting coloured sole which makes them ultra-stylish. Again available in a choice of colours, you will most definitely be spoilt for choice when it comes to your Mother’s Day gift ideas.
One of our favourite Mother’s Day gifts you can pick up here at Bedroom Athletics has to be these beautiful Cole slipper boots, which will give her the ultimate luxury! Not only are these calf-length boots crafted with gorgeous faux fur both inside and out, tired feet can indulge in the delightful memory foam footbed for that extra comfort. Perfect for lazy days and cosy nights, these heavenly slipper boots are a great price at only £35. That’s not a bad price for luxury at all!
Whether Mum already has the perfect pair of slippers or you want to give her a gift that matches with our Bedroom Athletics slippers, our ultra cosy dressing gowns are just the thing. We especially love the Sade hooded fleece dressing gown, which we think you’ll agree is the perfect addition to any collection of loungewear. The soft flannel fleece material is super soft to the touch and feels glorious on the skin making it perfect for wrapping up warm on a chilly night. Complete with hood, self-tie waist belt and our iconic branding on the left side, this snow-tipped finish dressing gown is sure to put a smile on her face this Mother’s Day! Choose from a dreamy soft pink or grey snow tipped black, and from just £20, these delightful dressing gowns are a great option for anyone looking at Mother’s Day gifts on a budget.
We hope this has given you plenty of inspiration when it comes to Mother’s Day gift ideas. Let’s face it, we should be showing our mums how much we love them every single day of the year, so this occasion is an excuse to do something extra special for her. Whether you treat her to a pair of our lovely Bedroom Athletics slippers, one of our luxury dressing gowns, or even both, she’s sure to appreciate a gift that gives her an excuse to relax and put her feet up. We reckon a delicious Sunday roast would go down a treat too, but we’ll leave that for you to decide!
