There probably hasn’t been a better time to make the effort and surprise your Mum this year with a gift she’ll love. Mother’s Day is a time to shine the light on her and recognise the dedication, time and effort she has spent raising you. That said, why shouldn’t your Mum take part in an epic experience she’ll enjoy?
Would your Mum be more interested in going on a brewery tour than to a cake decorating class? Or, maybe she’d prefer to join an American smoking cooking class rather than a pasta making class?

In light of #metoo and other women’s rights movements, more than ever, women are crushing societal stereotypes. Whilst you might be looking for Mother’s Day cards, and Mother’s Day gifts, our gift ideas for women could spark way more than just a Mother’s Day present.
We aim to help your Mum reignite her passions and hobbies. When you’re doing more things that you truly love, you’ll notice a shift in your energy levels and overall happiness. Watch her take time out and enjoy learning a new skill around like-minded people. And, while we hope she feels empowered, the skills she’ll learn from a gift experience will enable her to continue on when she gets home as a newfound hobby.
