If you’re searching for inspiration for Mother’s Day this year, why not replace a material gift with an experience? Experiences and adventures create memories, which last. They also offer an exciting alternative to the usual present ideas. If you’re mum is an adrenaline junkie or they’re always eager to take on a new challenge, here are some ideas you may wish to consider.
Let your mum fly high with a lesson provided by a qualified pilot. Enjoy a bird’s eye view from the cockpit of a small plane, such as Cessna 172 and learn how to use the controls. All lessons take place under the supervision of an experienced pilot and they will be on hand to help out whenever needed. Flying is a liberating and exciting experience, which will set the pulses racing and provide memories that last for a lifetime.
For the ultimate thrill-seeker, a bungee jump is an ideal choice. Although a little unconventional compared to other Mother’s Day gifts, this is sure to set your present apart from the crowd. If you have a mum who is up for a challenge and always looking to try new things, a bungee is guaranteed to deliver an incredible experience. Gather the family together to go and watch and cheer on from the sidelines. Film the jump so that your mum can watch it back once back on terra firma.
Hit the tracks
Petrol heads and those with a need for speed will enjoy a race day. Drive as fast as you want without any worries about the speed limit and try your hand at cornering like an expert. Race super cars or go for a NASCAR experience alongside a professional driver. You can choose from half day or full day experiences and it’s often better value to book for 2 people. If your dad is a fan of racing as well, why not treat him for Father’s Day and challenge your parents to a race?
Indoor skydiving is a fantastic way to experience the adrenaline rush of skydiving without having to leap from a plane thousands of feet in the air. It’s great fun and it’s suitable for all ages, so you can take the whole family along.
If your mum loves the outdoors and hiking through forests and glades, ziplining could be just the ticket. Swing through the trees at speed and take in the views from above. Experienced guides are on standby to assist and provide any information.
Kayaking can be as fast-paced or as relaxing as you wish and there are some incredible locations to enjoy. The beauty of this activity is its versatility. Take your kayak to bob around on the ocean waves and soak up some sun for a gentle introduction. For something a little more action-packed, head to the rapids and hold on tight!
Adventure experiences are a unique gift idea for Mother’s Day. If your mum lives for the outdoors or they thrive on an adrenaline rush, why not treat them to a thrilling day out?
