Tell us what Mother's Day means to you and you could win a Twenty Pound Boden Voucher

 The card my children got for me last year - very apt

Mother's Day is coming up on Sunday. Tell us what Mother's Day means to you and you could win a £20 Boden Voucher which you MUST spend on yourself - and that's an order.
I am not normally sentimental, and I know, thanks to Wikipedia that Mother's Day is a made up day.  However for the weeks running up to Mother's Day you can't enter the supermarket or any shop in fact without being bombarded with messages about how you should be honouring and celebrating your mum. That's quite hard for me because although this year is going to be my fourth mother's day as a mother it's also my third mother's day without my own lovely mum. For me, it's a bittersweet day.

Luckily, I have my own children now and I remember that when I was a child myself, before the cynicism about the commercialised nature of mother's day kicked in, I used to love making things for my mum on mother's day and making her day special. I do think that as children get older it can be a great opportunity for them to take a proper look at the woman who they rely on so much and consider how very much she does for them on the other 364 days of the year, and do something to say thank you for that.

A card I made for my mum, many years ago...

So, that's Mother's Day for me. A day to remember that I am a mum and for my children to celebrate me but also a day when I would love to be able to take my own mum out and spoil her and thank her once again for all she did for me.

We'd love to hear what Mother's Day means to you. Is it meaningful for you? Do you do anything special with your children or with your mum? Do tell us and one person will win a £20 Boden voucher which she MUST spend on herself and not on her children. That's an order.

To me mothers day is the only day my mom can put her feet up and enjoy it.. even then she still wont be resting! My mom is an amazing mom and she never has time to relax, shes works full time and she puts so much effort into work and every penny she gets she will give to the kids. She hasn't had an easy time recently and she deserves this more than anything! !

My son was born on 21st Feb, 10 weeks early so it's an unexpected mothers day for me! He'll be in hospital for a few more weeks so I'll be spending mothers day with him at the hospital. Despite the difficult circumstances I am loving being a mum, my son is beautiful and I'm so grateful he is here and safe.
