The huge choice of experience days on offer are sure to thrill Mothers with an adventurous streak. Giving your mum a helicopter ride or arranging for her to float over London in a hot-air balloon, before enjoying a celebratory glass of champagne, are gifts she’s not likely to forget in a hurry. Alternatively, you could even book her a flying lesson for instance, or join her on a daring skydive.
Taking afternoon tea for two at a country manor or top hotel is another terrific way for the special lady in your life to enjoy Mother’s Day. You can join your mum in a quintessentially English tradition, sipping tea from bone china cups and nibbling on finger sandwiches and cakes. There’s something to suit all tastes from refined traditional teas at the London Hilton or famous Fortnum and Mason to quirky afternoon teas at the exotic Brighton Pavilion complete with chocolate fondue and gin cocktails.
If your mum prefers a cocktail to a cup of tea, a fabulous twist on tradition is served at the Mayfair hotel with tea-inspired cocktails, such as peppermint tea martinis or peach iced tea, presented with cute cupcakes in complementing flavours.
For lovers of aqua-based pursuits, there are some unique and unforgettable experiences available that make fantastic Mother’s Day presents. Fans of sailing and marine life in particular will be hugely impressed with a day spent dolphin or whale-watching off the coast of Cornwall. The two-hour marine safari is a unique opportunity to see the giants of the deep, including basking sharks, Minke whales and dolphins in their natural environment.
For an even better opportunity to experience underwater life, adventurous mums can have a go at scuba diving. Before going on to take a PADI course to explore the open water, beginners are introduced to the sport in a completely safe and controlled environment.
