Mother’s Day Around the World
Find inspiration around the Web and from bloggers who’ve already celebrated this year.
Traditions, like the date, may vary, but the sentiment is the same. While many in Europe, for example, have already celebrated Mothering Sunday this year, in March, others in the Americas will soon celebrate Mother’s Day in May. Those of us who still need inspiration may discover some here.
For the Sentimental Mom
Bringing Up Brits: Meghan Fenn is an American expat who has lived in England for over 10 years. She is an author and mother to three kids who, despite having an American mother, seem to become more and more British every day. Her blog post about Mothering Sunday is all about how she, her husband and their three little ones celebrated together and concludes with a thoughtful quote from her own mother, “Being a mother is like having your heart walking around outside your body.”
For the Foodie Mom
Far, Far Away: Luxembourg-based blogger Fiona Lynne shares her tips for a beautiful Mother’s Day, or, as it’s called there, Mothering Sunday. This year in Luxembourg, Mother’s Day falls on Pretzel Sunday—so the day calls for double the celebration. She offers ideas for a day filled with soothing tea, vibrant flowers and, of course, fresh pretzels.
For the Travelling Mom
Glam Australia: Glam Australia has created a list of luxury gifts Mom may really want this year. Whether it’s a Louis Vuitton cosmetic bag or a Mulberry travel adapter, moms who like to travel in style would be thrilled with any of these.

For the Family Mom
Reginecelinaaa: Celine, a Filipino blogger raised in Kuwait, writes about how she celebrated Mother’s Day this year—a new bag and flowers for Mom (one rose from each daughter) and a nice dinner out together as a family.
