Mother’s Day is a celebration honoring the mother of the family, as well as motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society. In Slovenia, we celebrate Mother’s Day on the 25th of March.

This year you can give your mother a unique and a true Slovenian gift that we know she’ll love. Our Slovenian gift shop boasts a wide range of authentic, Slovenian gifts that are sure to delight any Slovenian fan (or a fan to be). To help you choose the perfect gift for your mother on this year’s Mother’s day we have a compiled a list of our top 5 picks from the shop.
