Gift baskets are a fantastic option as they suit almost any budget. You can theme these baskets depending on what your Mother likes or is interested in. So if she enjoys spending time in the garden, why not fill a basket full of gardening tools, gloves and a book she can read. Or if she enjoys yoga, you could fill the basket with a new yoga mat, candles and the ingredients for a smoothie she can enjoy afterwards. The possibilities and endless. She will love all the extra care and thought you have put into making her gift personal to her. Plus some of the items you include may make her enjoy her favourite things even more. If your Mother does not have any particular interest or you can’t think of any ideas, you can’t go wrong with chocolates and sweets.
Book a Helicopter tour
If you want your Mom to get the VIP treatment this Mother’s day, why not take her on a helicopter tour. This is an ideal gift if she enjoys sightseeing and has a real sense of adventure. There are a range of themed flights for you to choose from, depending on what your Mom would most like to see. For instance, if she loves football you could take a ride over her favourite football ground. Or if she’s interested in history, some flights take you over a number of historic houses that she might enjoy. This makes a unique and memorable experience that she will enjoy from beginning to end.
