Coming up with the perfect way to tell the mother of your children how loved and important she is to you all can sometimes be tricky. Here are some ideas for a wonderful gift that should have any keen camper smiling on her special day.
English Heritage/ Historic Scotland/ Cadw or National Trust Membership
Having membership to one of the groups that protects many historic sites across the UK is a great excuse to get out there and enjoy a whole lot more adventuring. Camping holidays are a great, low-cost way to explore everything that the British Isles – and beyond – have to offer and having membership of one of the above will make those holidays even more fun and affordable.
Engraved Mother's Day Compass
A practical gift for adventurers as well as a sentimental present, one of these compasses will show your outward bounder just how much you care and will make sure that the family is always heading in the right direction. (£11.99, Not On The High Street)
Fitted Picnic Hamper
A fully kitted out picnic hamper is just the thing for a refined girl who loves glamping. Make sure that the mother of your children can enjoy the perfect picnic with you and the kids, whether in a field, on a beach or on in a magical woodland glade. (£125, Not On The High Street)
The Family Personalised Enamel Mugs
The family that plays together stays together. What could be better, this mother's day, than sitting around a campfire with mugs of hot cocoa – or something a little stronger – and raising a toast to the special lady with mugs that have your family allegiance stamped all over them. (£14.75, Not On The High Street)
IOUs For Camping Fun
Giving the mother of your children a lovely Mother's Day does not have to involve spending a lot of money. Why not keep things simple and work with your kids to make little tickets with IOUs written on them for your next camping trip? For example, 'IOU one lie-in.', 'IOU one breakfast in your sleeping bag', 'IOU one roasted marshmallow' – whatever you know she would like best. Planning the camping trip and getting everything ready could also be part of the nice surprise.
