GCA releases Mother's Day and Easter toolkits

Posted on in Business News , Creative News

The2021-GCA-Mothers-Day-Toolkit-PORTRAIT-1 (1) Greeting Card Association (GCA) have created a both Mother's Day and Easter 2021 toolkit, with the aim of helping retailers promote these events in their stores and online.

The GCA are a member of the Independent Retailers Confederation (IRC), a well-established organisation representing c.100,000 independent retailers throughout the UK. 


2021 Mother's Day Toolkit

Mother's Day is celebrated across the world. In the UK we celebrate our Mother's on the 4th Sunday in Lent, while other countries celebrate Mother's Day on different days.

In the United Kingdom we love our mothers; in fact, nearly twice as many mother's day cards are bought as there are mothers! No fewer than 35 million* greeting cards are purchased each year in the UK according to the Greeting Card Association's 2020 Annual Market Report.

Mother's Day cards outnumbered Valentine's Day by more than 11 million, and the average price of a Mother's Day card is £2.04 - 30% more than we spend on our Dad's on Father's Day!

All resources can be found on this page will help retailers promote Mother's Day in their stores and online.

Mother's Day is on Sunday 14th March 2021.
