Mother's Day gift ideas | Great ideas for the travel-loving and adventurous mums

Mother's Day is coming up. And for the mum who loves travel, adventure and experiences, why not swap the traditional gifts (flowers, chocolate & cards) in favour of an indulgent gift experience from Buyagift?

Listed below are four of my favourite Buyagift experiences that are sure to make your mum's day a special and memorable one this year. Take a look.

Afternoon Tea - Smartbox


If your mum is a foodie, she will love and appreciate this indulgent treat from Buyagift. Included in the Smartbox is an afternoon tea experience for two at a choice of venues across the country. A great way to celebrate traditional British culture while spending some quality time with a loved one.

Theatre Tickets to a West End Show


If your mum is a theatre lover, why not treat her to world-class theatrical entertainment in London's iconic West End? This experience from Buyagift includes two West End theatre tickets to a show of her choice. She could choose from some of London's best-loved theatre shows, including Wicked, Hairspray, Mary Poppins, Only Fools and Horses, and much more. A great way to spend an exciting afternoon or an evening in London.

Luxury London Getaway


For a more indulgent gift, you could treat your mum to a luxury London getaway where she can unwind and relax at a luxurious London hotel of her choice. London has an outstanding selection of hotels which offer first-class hospitality, facilities and great customer service, which will ensure that she has a memorable city break.

We recently enjoyed a luxurious London getaway with Buyagift, staying at the five star M by Montcalm which offers luxurious accommodation in the heart of Shoreditch.

The hotel is a short walk from Old Street tube station and is also in close proximity of several of London's top attractions - Tower of London, The View from The Shard, London Eye and more - making it a great base to explore London.

M by Montcalm has a very modern architectural design with the interiors and rooms having a fun & spirited vibe. We stayed in one of their M Club Double Rooms which was a luxurious space kitted out with plush fabrics and evocative mood lighting. Amenities in the room included climate control, electronic curtains, comfortable bed, a good-sized working desk, a laptop safe, LCD TV, I-home docking station and a hairdryer. The en-suite bathroom was clean and stocked with luxury towels & bathrobes, Hermés toiletries and a weighing scale. We loved the little gestures like bottled water (that was restocked), apples for snacking (placed near the lift entrances), umbrellas for the rainy days (which came in very handy during our stay).

There is an indoor pool, spa, sauna and fitness centre for the use of guests. Bhavin enjoyed the pool and sauna - both were well maintained and clean. The Beauty and Melody Spa at the hotel offers body and facial massages & treatments, waxing, laser and body sculpting treatments and more. It is advisable to book these treatments in advance as it can be quite busy.

Full English breakfast for two is included in the Buyagift package.

In addition to the in-room and hotel facilities & amenities what made our stay great was the highly professional, friendly and welcoming staff. If you are looking to treat mum to a relaxing break, this 'Luxury London Getaway' from Buyagift comes recommended.

Up at the O2


For the adventure-loving mum, the 'Up at The O2' experience would be a great gift. The experience is a thrilling 90-minute climb over the roof of London's most popular entertainment venue, The O2. Climbs are available at different times of the day but if you can, I would recommend the Sunset climb where you go up The O2 as the sun goes down. The climb is a wonderful way to experience London from a different perspective. Book your 'Up at The O2 Climb for Two' here.
