If you know a mum who has just about everything, an experience gift is the way to go!
Do you have a mum (or mother in law) who, between birthdays, Christmas and Motherís Day every year, has been given just about everything she could ever want or need from her children?
If so, and you are stuck for ideas for gifts for this coming Mothers Day, why not consider giving an experience as a gift? Here are some ideas for the special mums (and mum figures) in your life, that are unique and will be appreciated much more than another bottle of perfume, or necklace.
Whether you see a play, a musical, a comedy show, the ballet or a concert, a show is a fun way to spend time with your mum, while venturing into the city.
Who better to treat to a high tea, than your mum? You can indulge in delightful sweets and savouries, drink as much tea as you can handle and engage in a long afternoon of conversation. What more could a mum want?
There are plenty of other ways to spend time with foodie mums who love to dine out, such as brunch, a wine or food walking tour around your local city, a cooking class or you could even hire a chef to cook her a lovely gourmet meal at home.
No mum will ever complain about receiving a voucher for some much-deserved pampering, in the form of a spa package. Packages can include massages, facials, manis and pedis, exfoliation...and the list goes on!
A bucket list activity
Has your mum always wanted to swim with dolphins? Go horseriding? Go sky diving? You can make it happen by searching online for companies that offer vouchers for these once in a lifetime type of activities.
If your mum isn't an adrenaline junkie, you can still treat to her to something less adventurous, such as a dance or art/craft class. Check experience websites for ideas.
A picnic at her favourite spot
A picnic with mum is a cost-effective way to spend time with her, and kids and grandkids can come along too. Pack a picnic blanket, and create your own grazing tray with nibbles, cheeses and sweets, and head to a beach, park or nature reserve that is special to your mum.
The main reason we give presents to our mums is to show them how much they mean to us, so hopefully this list will give you a bit of inspiration for gifts that your mum will truly love.
