Mother's Day Excursion and Experience Gift Ideas
Scented candles and scarves are all fine and good, but sometimes we want a unique gift for our mothers. Mother's Day is a time to celebrate your mom and thank her for all that she does, and sometimes an experience speaks more than a present. Rather than stressing over what to wrap up for mom, here are some experience and excursion ideas to give to her.
If your mom is a self-proclaimed wino like mine, take her out to a local vineyard or winery for a night. Indulge in tasting various local offerings and small plates as you sit outside; even take a tour if you're so interested! This idea can also be applied to breweries, which offer similar options.
Girls' Night In
My mom is my best friend, and I love to have nights where we get lazy and cozy and watch a movie. Order a pizza, make some popcorn, grab a bottle of wine, and settle in. The more blankets and cult classics, the merrier.
A mother's life is hectic; we all know this. She deserves a break, and I'm sure she'd love to share it with you. Check out local spas for package deals and book a relaxing afternoon for the two of you. From facial scrubs to massages, don't pull out any stops. Treat yourselves.
Offer to make dinner for your mother and your family on Mother's Day. Prepare her favorite dish and perhaps a sweet dessert for later. Take the reigns from her and give her a special evening that's a cheaper alternative to many other gifts.Whatever your mother's preference is, sometimes an experience or a nice day out says how much you love and appreciate her as much as a gift. Mothers are such loving, hard-working individuals, and they deserve to feel special.
