It’s easy to forget the little things that our mums did for us growing up. Sure, they carried us around for the best part of a year.. But what about the time they dropped everything to bake cake or pick us up from a sleepover gone wrong? The hugs and kisses, the handwritten notes in our lunch boxes, the sincere face of concern when we told them about our boyfriend troubles. Our mums do little things every day that made a big difference, and we can’t thank them enough. Now is your chance.
Here at Cath Kidston, we’re of the opinion that every day should be Mother’s Day. But since that’s not practically possible (and because mum’s a pretty practical sort) why not give her something that will spark a lifetime of joy? Bouquets are great and all, but after a while the flowers fall and the petals drop. We’ve created a line of bags as bright as flowers that can carry a phone, wallet, keys – even a first aid kit. Now we’re talking mum’s language.
This Mother’s Day, gift mum one of the sunny staples our team have spent months dreaming up and designing. Our Mayfield Blossom print – which marks the moment the whole nation bids goodbye to winter and says hello to spring – is a bouquet that your mum can carry for life. It’s a reminder to look for the signs of spring on even the darkest winter day, a thank you to mum for all the little things she’s done – childhood birthday cakes, nappies and all.
