How many times have you grabbed a bunch of flowers on the way to lunch with mum for Mother's Day? Why not make this year that little bit more special and give her an experience she’ll love, or better still, one you can share together? Here are a few experience gift ideas for the different types of mums out there. Don’t worry, there’s something for everyone, even the mums that have everything!
The wild mum
Has your mum got a wild side? Would she be up for diving with sharks? Or is she ready to jump out of a plane? If you’ve got a daredevil on your hands, we’ve got plenty of experiences certain to get her heart racing. From rally car racing to abseiling – if you’re feeling bold, you can always go along with her!
The selfless mum
When was the last time your mum bought something just for her? Chances are she doesn’t have too much time to spoil herself – which is why you can’t go wrong with an indulgent Mother’s Day gift. Did you know you can buy an at-home massage on RedBalloon? Yep, your mum won’t even need to leave her home. Perhaps she’d love a facial or just some time to relax in a floatation tank?
The creative mum
Were you always doing arts and crafts growing up? If your mum is the creative type we have a range of experiences she’s bound to love. There’s cake decorating courses, sculpture lessons, even resin jewellery workshops. You never know, you may end up gifting her a new favourite hobby!
The hard-to-buy-for mum
Has your mum already got everything? We hear you. Some mums are tough to buy for – which is why a shared experience is the best gift you can give. You get to spend some quality time with mum and maybe even tick an item off your bucket lists. What about a Harbour Bridge Climb? Or a cheeky weekend away? If you’re still stuck for ideas, here are ten experiences that are perfect to do with your mum by your side.
