Mother’s Day 2015 is just around the corner. This special day for mums is an annual celebration and for this year, it will fall on Sunday, May 10, 2015. Australians observe the same Mother’s day schedule as the Americans, which is the second Sunday of May.
Trove reports that an Australian named Mrs. Janet Heyden is credited as the woman who was responsible for creating the Mother’s Day tradition. Her daughter Mrs. Thelma Little who resides in Petersham, New South Wales, told them Mrs. Heyden’s story.
Mrs. Heyden was concerned for the lonely mums, especially the aging ladies who were living in the Newington State Hospital in Sydney. This prompted her to start a campaign in 1923 wherein she asked for donations to buy gifts for these women. Heyden’s simple campaign started the popular tradition of giving gifts to mothers aside from birthday and Christmas presents.
Instead of giving the usual gifts like flowers, cards and chocolates for the special women in our lives, why not give them unique presents that they will love and cherish. Below are three Mother’s Day 2015 gifts that mums will surely love.
