5 Experience Gifts to Give Mom this Mother's Day
Okay, have you been a little stuck on exactly what to get our mom for Mother’s Day? Do you go with a slightly impersonal card covered in flowers and glitter? Maybe a candle? What about a new mug with a cute saying? Although your mom will definitely like anything you give her, consider getting her something unique by gifting her an experience right here in Wichita.
Impress Your Mom with These Experience Gifts in Wichita
Visit the Art Museum
The Wichita Art Museum is a great place for you and your mom to spend some quality time together. They offer a plethora of interesting collections, rotating exhibitions, and an award-winning art garden that all provide fuel for conversation and learning in a calm environment. There is also a cafe where you can enjoy a tasty lunch after a few hours of taking in all of the wonderful pieces that the museum has to offer.
Go Horseback Riding
Do you want to give your mom a one of a kind experience? Horseback riding is an interesting alternative to the normal mom gift of lotion and candles. C-Arrow Stables, right outside of Wichita, offers trail rides for all experience levels from 8-5pm daily for $25 an hour. Whether your mom rode horses in her childhood or this is her first time, she will love seeing the beautiful Kansas prairie from a different perspective - and of course, spending some time out in the fresh open air.
Give Your Mom a Relaxing Getaway
This gift idea is ideal for busy moms who deserve a little break. Give your mom the gift of relaxation by providing her with her own mini-retreat right here in Wichita. The Beach House at BrightWater Bay is surrounded by a relaxing private lake, 44 acres of calm water, beautiful trees and sandy beaches. The Beach House has 2 full bedrooms and can comfortably sleep up to 11 people, but it is also the perfect place for mom to enjoy some - probably much needed - alone time. Get a Beach House Gift Card and give your mom the break she deserves.
If your mom loves to stay active, this might be the right experience gift for her. Bliss Climbing and Fitness is a rock climbing gym off of 28th street where you and your mom can build both flexibility and strength while spending time together! Bliss offers rock climbing and bouldering options for everyone from beginners to advanced climbers and adult classes for those who want to learn to become better climbers - be careful, you may turn your mom into a rock climbing fanatic!
Plant Flowers Together
Invite your mom to a local nursery and pick out a variety of flowers to plant together. We highly suggest visiting the Hillside Nursery for all of your flower and fauna needs. They offer a wide selection of beautiful flowers and have experts that know what grows well in Wichita. If you are tight on space, plant your flowers in pots and set them on a windowsill. Every time you and your mom look at the flowers you will be reminded of the great experience you had together. Planting flowers you chose together sounds like a lovely way to spend a Saturday, doesn’t it?
Try something a little different this year and gift your mom an experience that she will talk about for years to come!
