Adventure. Every parent muses to their child at some point, “One day I'm going to _______.” Give them a little push and get them to DO IT already! For me, rock climbing is the big leap that I swear I'm going to take…someday. An intro class could be just the ticket to get me off the ground.
Relaxation. Mom deserves a break. Give her the gift of some downtime with a massage or pedicure.
Romantic scenery. You do know how mom became mom, right? Give her a chance to reconnect with her loved one on a date night! Things like whale-watching trips or easy horseback tours are excellent gifts for mom that help her reconnect with her passion and see her city.
Culinary exploration. There are a TON of gifts for mom that can help her flaunt her kitchen skills. Cheese-making, artisan sausage tutorials, winemaking classes. Mom is often the one tasked with feeding the family, so this can make the experience all the more enjoyable with a deeper knowledge of what makes food truly fabulous.
Something quirky. Roller-skating in Reno. Riding a balloon in Vegas. Mini golf. Custom pottery. Wherever you live, gifts for mom can be as varied as her own hobbies. Choose to relive a favorite memory or make a new one, just you and mom. It'll mean the world to her.
