Don’t forget it’s International Mother’s Day!

International courier ParcelHero says there’s still time to send overseas

The UK might have already celebrated Mother’s Day on 15 March, but in many countries it’s this coming Sunday, 10 May. From the USA to Germany and Australia families celebrate their mums this Sunday. The tradition was created by Anna Jarvis in the USA in the early 20th century, and today is the third busiest holiday in terms of sending cards and parcels in the US.

Global courier ParcelHero’s Head of Public Relations, David Jinks MILT, says: ‘If you are an ex-pat living in the UK, who has family back in the US, Australia or many areas of Europe, it’s all too easy to forget that it is probably your Mother’s Day this weekend. The chances are you have a mum missing you at home, make her day by sending her a gift or card; but don’t leave it too late!’

Adds David: ‘International couriers such as ParcelHero can get gifts to Australia in three days and the US and Europe in just one to two days, so it’s not too late to send your mum a gift to show you are thinking about her. And don’t forget to check out our customs advice to ensure your gift doesn’t get stuck at the border.’

People with mums in a number of other countries may well have more time to send their gifts. For example, Poland doesn’t celebrate Mother’s Day until 26 May, Argentina until 18 October and Russian mums have to wait until 29 November for their gifts.
