Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and if you’re searching the internet or crawling the high street for an alternative Mother’s Day gift and are stuck for inspirational ideas, then you’ve come to the right place! For most mums, spending quality time with sons and daughters is all they ever want, but to show our appreciation and love, many of us like to go the extra mile and get them something that they will treasure for many years to come. Their choice of hand cream or top from their favourite shop will, of course, go down a treat, but what about mixing things up this year and treating them to an experiential gift instead? One that can be enjoyed as a family and gives you the opportunity to spend some quality time together, which with such busy day-to-day lives, can often be hard to come by! Below, we’re going to go through just a handful of the experiences you can share with your mother during a Mother’s Day glamping trip! An unforgettable experience, which you can share with those closest to you.
Treat Her to an Adventure Weekend
Of course, we may be biased, but what present could be better than whisking your mum away for a couple of days to an exceptional location and even better accommodation? We have Wales glamping options, as well as unique abodes across Cornwall, Devon, Dorset and many other spots across the UK. Each one is full of character and can be found in some of the most exceptionally beautiful landscapes we could find!
See the Best of the Local Area
Whether you’re the organised one out of the family or you’re a little more relaxed about planning, we can guarantee that your mum will appreciate an itinerary that has already been pencilled in the schedule. Ahead of your Mother’s Day glamping trip, scope out the area local to your accommodation and find a handful of attractions, events or activities to keep you all busy during your time away. You may plan on checking out a historic house, a nearby beach, a garden in spring or theme park for the adrenaline-junkies, whatever you think that your mum will be most interested in doing, book it up and surprise her with an action-packed couple of days.
Relax in the Hot Tub
After a day spent exploring, sinking into the warm and inviting waters of a hot tub is a fantastic way to relax. Pick up a bottle of their favourite tipple and a platter of delicious nibbles, grab your swimmers and spend an hour or more unwinding in the waters and enjoying the landscape around you.
Pamper Yourselves on a Spa Day
With full-time jobs, a seemingly endless pile of washing, housework, decorating and more, mums always seem so busy and when they say, ‘I’ve just sat down’ or ‘can you take something with you when you go upstairs’, it’s likely because they’ve been running around all day and could do with a break or a helping hand. With all of this and more to keep them rushing around, invite them to rest for a while and enjoy a pampering session with you. From facials and massage, you can all reap the rewards of being pampered for an hour or two during your glamping break.
Indulge in Foodie Delights
For most parents, the cooking of meals is a responsibility which is left up to them. Why not give them a morning, evening or both off? Head to the local shop and grab a basket of delicious foods and tempting treats and spoil your mum with a selection of foodie delights. How about breakfast in bed? Or a three-course evening meal? Our glamping abodes have cooking facilities available for you to use, so you can cook up a storm for all to enjoy.
The art of conversation and the enjoyment we get from spending time with those we care about most can often be lost in the digital world that we live in today. Emails, social media, shopping and conversations online can invade the precious time that we do get to spend with those that we love. Unplugging and switching off for just a day or the entirety of your glamping break can give you and your mum the space and time to have a quality and uninterrupted catch-up.
