Last Minute Mother's Day Gifting Guide

Mother's Day is not just another holiday on the calendar, it's a time to celebrate the incredible bond between a mother and her child. It's a day to pause and reflect on the immeasurable love, sacrifice, and devotion that mothers give to their families every single day. We are big fans of all Mum’s and are so excited to make mother’s day extra special this year. This annual celebration has a rich history that dates back to ancient times, with the ancient Greeks and Romans honouring mother goddesses such as Rhea and Cybele with festivals.

In modern times, the concept of Mother's Day as we know it originated in the early 20th century, thanks to the efforts of Anna Jarvis, who wanted to create a special day to honour her own mother's memory. Over time, Mother's Day has become an international holiday, observed in many countries worldwide with various traditions and customs. 


For many of us, our mothers are the first person we turn to when we need comfort, guidance, or a listening ear. They are the ones who bandage scraped knees, offer words of encouragement, and stay up late to help us with our homework. They are our constant cheerleaders, our protectors, and our biggest supporters.

We at, Rita Farhi, understand the importance of this special day and the value of the mothers in our lives. The brand was founded on the idea of creating confectionery products that are not only delicious but also beautiful and elegant. Every product is crafted with the utmost care and attention to detail, using only the finest ingredients sourced from around the world. This commitment to quality and excellence is a reflection of the love and dedication that mothers put into every meal and treat they make for their families. Named after the family matriarch, we celebrate mums every day.
