Don't forget Mother's Day!

As you all know it's Mother's Day on Sunday, so don't forget to treat your Mum to an extra special greeting card.


Our Burton Road and Heaton Moor Belly Button Card and Gift Boutique's are full to the brim with beautiful greetings cards and unique gifts, perfect to show your Mum how much she means to you!


The modern holiday of Mother's Day was first celebrated in 1908, when Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother in America. She then began a campaign to make "Mother's Day" a recognized holiday in the United States. Jarvis' holiday was adopted by other countries and it is now celebrated all over the world. In this tradition, each person offers a gift, card, or remembrance toward their mothers, grandmothers, and/ or maternal figure on mother's day.

Various observances honouring mothers existed in America during the 1870s and the 1880s, but these never had resonance beyond the local level.  Jarvis never mentioned Julia Ward Howe's attempts in the 1870s to establish a "Mother's Day for Peace", nor any connection to the Protestant school celebrations that included "Children's Day" amongst others. Neither did she mention the traditional festival of Mothering Sunday, but always said that the creation was hers alone.


So, what better way to celebrate your Mum than to send an extra sparkly Belly Button Designs creation!

Mamma Mia!

This Sunday is Mother's Day so don't forget to tell your Mum how special she is! Take a peek at our Mamma Mia pinboard on Pinterest.
