Hilary Whitehall on the cost of forgetting Mother’s Day

Forgetting things, we’ve all been there…life is busy with work, admin, looking after the kids, staying healthy and juggling our social life. It’s very easy to forget what you did yesterday, let alone the important dates in the diary.

Well, don’t panic, because if certain calendar dates have slipped your mind, you’re not the only one!

In fact, 40% of us admit we have forgotten special occasions, especially with our mothers which include birthdays, meeting for lunch and the big one, Mother’s Day.

However, we also put in effort and time trying to buy back some brownie points with our mum to show her how much we care. The research by One4all Gift Cards shows, if we forgot a special day, 27% have spent time doing something which their mum loves, even though they she knew they would hate it, as well popping round to see her (37%) or chatting over a video call (22%), planning a surprise for her (22%) and making her breakfast in bed (13%).

Aston spoke to Hilary Whitehall, actress, podcaster and mother of comedian Jack Whitehall and Lou Hickey from One4all Gift Cards.
