In Britain and the United States, Mother’s Day is celebrated on different days of the calendar year. On this side of the Atlantic, we celebrate Mother’s Day on the second Sunday of May, which falls on May 13, 2018.

Flowers and chocolate

Gifting bouquets of flowers and boxes of chocolates to loved ones has been a popular way to express your fondness for them for years. With Mother’s Day responsible for a quarter of all floral purchases made on any holiday and a significant amount of the chocolate sales, it is clear that these are popular gift choices. As a result, it is probably not a bad idea to preorder the flowers and buy the chocolates at least a few days in advance to avoid mad panics.

Brunch

Heading out for an afternoon of all-you-can-eat buffet is a great way to spend any Sunday, and an even better way to spend Mother’s Day. Hotels and restaurants across the island will be hosting brunches where you can eat and drink to your heart’s content.
