2. Have a Picnic
Give mom a mini vacation with a scenic hike (make the difficulty dependant on her fitness levels) and nutritious picnic lunch. You can scout the area for bird-filled trails, botanical wonders, or sandy beaches and find the perfect spot to present her favorite foods—all wrapped up nicely in a picnic basket.
3. Wine Tour By Bike
Wine tours are nice, but instead of spending the day sipping sans exercise, try incorporating physical fitness and vino into a special day for mom. There are plenty of cycling wine tour groups online—or create your own by choosing a area with several wineries (wine country) and renting bikes for the day.
4. Go for a Scenic Hike
Whether they’re picking you up from school, dropping you off at soccer practice, or baking four dozen cookies for your weekend slumber party, moms are always running around! So turn it into a fun activity by going for a run together. Don’t stick around your ‘hood, but check out a challenging hiking trail, or kick off your shoes and go jogging on the beach instead.
5. Mom and Daughter Yoga
Yoga class is calming, but chilling out with mom by your side will be a great grounding and bonding experience. Choose a partner yoga class, in which the yoga poses are dependent on support from a partner. This is a great way to develop stronger relationships based on unspoken and deep levels of trust.
