Looking for a unique Mother’s Day Gift?1st Mar
Our mums are one of the most important figures in many of our lives, and once a year, we have a day dedicated solely to them. So let’s celebrate our mama’s and treat them to something super special on Mother’s Day!
From a bouquet of flowers, or a box of chocolates, to a lovely scented candle or bottle of posh bubble bath – all of these would make wonderful gifts, however, if you’re wanting to steer away from the usual Mother’s Day gift, we have drawn up a list of truly unique gifts for Mother’s Day.
What better than the gift of experience? Delve into Eryri Snowdonia 360 to help inspire you and explore ways you can celebrate your mum through unique days out, special trips, and memorable experiences.
A simple day spent walking through our amazing region, exploring the rugged coastlines, the barren mountainous ranges, or the lush woodlands. Pack a picnic, pick up mum, find your path, and away you go…
A fan of Gin or Whiskey?
Aber Falls is the first whisky distillery in North Wales in over 100 years. Tour the distillery together and learn about Welsh Whisky or even become a distiller for the afternoon and make your own gin! Sit alongside the river and enjoy a range of Welsh food and drink in the stunning café and browse the brilliant shop, picking up some tasty locally sourced goods, and the award-winning portfolio of spirits.
Perfect for Foodies – The Best of Welsh Food
Set in the heart of the Conwy Valley, Bodnant Welsh Food is the perfect place for food lovers to visit and enjoy the best food & drink that Wales has to offer. Visit the farm shop brimming with artisan produce or eat in one of the two restaurants. Extend your stay by booking into the farmhouse accommodation or bring your own motorhome and camp on site.
Experience Days Out
For something a little bit different, Talyllyn Railway is offering driver and footplate experiences, quarryman’s experiences and afternoon tea. At the National Slate Museum, an Introduction to Blacksmithing Course could be the perfect gift for an equestrian living mum! For those looking to improve or discover more about the Welsh language, Nant Gwrtheyrn offer courses for learners of all abilities with residential stays also available within this stunning and dramatic coastal setting.
For something a little more refined, why not spend a day, afternoon or weekend at stunning Portmeirion where you and your mum can while away your time at our very special and completely unique Italian Village.
North Wales is home to several fantastic steam railways boarding at Bala, Talyllyn, Llanberis, Snowdon and Ffestiniog. Choose your stop, hop on and unwind taking in some of the most amazing scenery our region has to offer from this ultra-classic form of transport.
A Spot of Art
For the mamas who appreciate art, while away your afternoon is at the beautiful Storiel gallery. The collections at Storiel include nearly 10,000 items of historic Welsh furniture, textiles, archaeology, ceramics, art, and photography. After you’ve visited the museum and gallery, browse the unique gift shop, full of local artisan crafts, cards, and gifts, or relax in the coffee shop and have yourself a ‘panad’ (that’s Welsh for cup of tea).
Many members are offering gift vouchers that can be used at any point during the year. Adventure Parc Snowdonia, Plas Menai, Snowdon Mountain Railway, RibRide, Glasfryn Parc, Zip World, Bala Lake Railway and Greenwood Family Park are among those offering vouchers to suit any budget.
“Many of us are choosing the gift of experience to celebrate those we love on special days such as Mother’s Day. We hope we have helped inspire you to make a memorable gift for that very special woman in your life on this important day.” Sian Pritchard of Eryri Snowdonia 360
