What makes a truly meaningful Mothers Day present?

Throughout the world, Mother’s Day is seen as an occasion to give a present to someone special in our lives – someone we truly (and instinctively) care about. It can be the event to gift something a bit more inspirational and meaningful than usual.

It is believed that the Sunday of mid-Lent (towards the end of March) was a day on which, in the past, offerings were made at the high altar of the ‘Mother-church’. Derived from this, began the tradition whereby sons and daughters made visits to their parents – and especially to see their mother, so it became known as “Mothering Sunday.” Indeed, for many years, this special Sunday was reserved so that children and young people living away from their parents could go home for the occasion, taking presents such a cake for their mother, and sharing a meal with their family. This day was particularly meaningful for apprentices, live-in farm-workers, and girls in service, and it was generally accepted that they had the right to have the day off.

The entire extended family gathers around the dining table for dinner, and at the end of the meal a beautiful cake is presented to Maman.

Product Details

A gift to wish someone a good trip

This truly special sterling-silver adjustable ring features a scallop shell / concha de vieira, (accompanied by a sweet little amethyst gemstone). This is the symbol of the Camino de Santiago:

The 1,000-year-old pilgrimage to the shrine of St. James in the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela is known as the Way of St. James (El Camino de Santiago - in Spanish). At least 200,000 people travel the Camino each year from all over the world: Some people walk, others travel by bike. Many travellers choose to do the Camino for personal, rather than any spiritual or religious reasons - taking time out from their busy/modern lives and perhaps finding inspiration along the way, whilst reflecting on their life in a supportive environment. Many carry with them a Scallop Shell symbol like this. Everyone experiences the journey in a different way.
