About Mother's Day

Mother's Day is the time to celebrate Mom and endlessly thank her for the hours spent putting up with our antics throughout the years.

The holiday is observed on different dates around the world but is commonly celebrated on the second Sunday in May. Origins of the holiday can be traced back to the ancient Greeks and Romans who held festivals for the mother goddesses Rhea and Cybele. Today, mothers traditionally receive flowers, breakfast in bed and gifts like jewelry and chocolates.

No matter what you're buying, make Mother's Day extra special by shopping from international retailers. It's easy to buy something unique from stores in the U.S., U.K., Hong Kong and Europe just by using your Borderlinx international forwarding addresses.
