Mothers Day experiences and ideas in Norwich – “For Mums Who Love…”
Christmas 2019 was a huge turning point. Seeing many people moving away from buying their usual piles of presents to focusing their yuletide festivities on a more renewable and environmentally friendly track. This saw some people wrapping their Christmas gifts in newspaper, banning Christmas crackers and even refusing to buy presents altogether.
If your concern for the environment has made you think twice about buying presents for people, then this might see you questioning your gift-buying for other occasions throughout the calendar. This might put you in a difficult situation. You want to express your gratitude and love for those dear to you whilst also juggling your determination to live a greener, more sustainable life. So how do you go about dealing with both at once? By gifting people experiences rather than actual presents, you will be helping to not only reduce the impact of creating unnecessary waste, you will also be helping your loved one make happy memories, learn a new skill or try a new experience.
This Mothers’ Day consider showing your mum how much she means to you by taking her out for the day. Spending some much needed and much valued quality time together making memories is the best gift you can give her after all. But what can you do together? The great news is that there are plenty of wonderful things to do in and around Norwich if you are looking for something to do rather than something to wrap up! We’ve put our heads together at The Norwich School of Beauty to come up with our best ideas for no-gift gifts you can give to your mum this Mothers’ Day to say thank you.
For Mums Who Love to Be Pampered
The ultimate gift you can give to someone who loves being pampered and unwinding with a glass of bubbles is a Spa Day! This has got to be the most coveted present going for anyone who loves a day of rest, relaxation and rejuvenation. In Norwich there are a few really fabulous places that you can go to for a Spa Day but our top three are Bannatyne Health Club and Spa, Therapyinc and Imagine Park Farm Spa Hethersett.
For Mums Who Love to Learn
What more could you give a mum who loves to learn than a day out wandering around Norwich Castle and Norwich Cathedral! These historic and extremely beautiful buildings are well worth a visit, or two, for any mums who have a passion for history. Wash down all that learning with a cream tea to break up the day and you’ve got one happy mum!
For Mums Who Love to Cook
A cooking workshop at Macarons & More is the perfect for present for all mums who love to bake, broil and brulée.
For Mums Who Love Adventure
BeWILDerwood is the only place to take Mum if she loves the great outdoors! This fantastic outdoor treehouse and adventure play area is the ideal spot for your day out. You will certainly make some memories as you climb up and swing through trees together!
For Mums Who Love the Water
Leave the city behind you and take a boat trip along the Broads of Wroxham if your mum loves water. You could hire a boat for the day or go along on an organised tour with entertaining live commentary, light refreshments and a licensed bar!
Whatever you end up doing for Mothers’ Day, we hope you have a fabulous day together and make some lovely memories!
