Choosing the Perfect Mother’s Day Gift

Mother’s Day Trip Ideas

Here at Wood’s Travel, we think each and every Mum is one in a million and what other excuse do we need to give them a little extra love for Mother’s Day! Maybe it’s not just your Mum, but a Step Mum, Mother in Law or even a Grandma, the list of women who deserve some extra love really is endless and we each have at least one truly special lady in our lives.

Are you struggling for inspiration to find the perfect Mother’s Day gift? Maybe you’re wondering what you could possibly get her that’ll be unique and meaningful. Look below for some ideas to treat that special lady…

Afternoon Tea

Fancy a change from your usual lunch plans? Treat your Mum to a traditional afternoon tea. Who doesn’t love fluffy scones, dainty cakes and pretty pastries? Regardless of which are her favourite, it’ll be an experience to remember.

We have trips throughout the year which include a delicious afternoon tea, including a visit to the delightful Ashdown Forest, the home of Winnie The Pooh.


How about a trip to London, our great Capital City, for a packed day of adventure? Whether you pay a visit to the great sights such as Big Ben and Buckingham Palace, enjoying being a tourist, or take a shopping trip to remember  – there’s plenty to see and do which will keep you entertained all day long.


Looking for something especially unique? Why not plan a trip to the theatre!  Whether you go to London’s West End, or visit a theatre in a more local town, there’s something about the thrill of watching a live show which is extra special.

We offer a variety of excursions to performances and shows throughout the year, so take a look here to get some inspiration.

Unique Dining Experiences

Is your Mum a bit of a foodie? Does she like to try new and different places? Why not consider booking a trip to a restaurant that offers something a little different to your typical ‘high end’ dining experience.

Is she an animal lover? How about joining us on our trip to the National Cat Centre where we have the opportunity to see this wonderful facility and some of the cats waiting to be re-homed. A delicious two course meal is then waiting for us at the Llama Park, where you can spend time with the llamas, alpacas, donkeys, goats, pigs and horses eager to meet you.

Take a look here to find out more about this excursion.

Looking for something a little different? How about a cruise down the river from Southampton in May, on a harbour tour enjoying the views on board the blue funnel boat with a fish and chips lunch.

Perhaps she’d prefer a roast dinner? We’ll be dining at a beautiful country pub in the village of Benenden, Kent on 13th Jun and learning more about this little village and its famous resident, Kitty Fisher. From here, we’ll enjoy a coach trip of the High Weald to see some of the sights.

Fancy a different coach trip with a meal included? Take a look at some of the other beautiful places we’re visiting this year.

A special day out

Is there a special place that she loved visiting as a child? Somewhere she’s always wanted to go, but has never had the means or opportunity to do so? Whether it’s taking that trip up to the Lake District she’s always hoped to go on, or a visit to London to explore the sights she’s never had the time to see. Why not consider a Woods Wish Day?

Our Wish Days offer you the opportunity to have your own chauffeur driven car for the day. You’ll be collected from your home in our luxury six-seater Mercedes and taken to your destination of choice! You may already have a specific destination in mind, but if you don’t then please do contact us and we can help you to research and plan your day. It doesn’t have to be just a single day either. Looking to go further afield? We can organise overnight stays for you and plan an entire weekend itinerary.

So, plan your Mum’s dream day with us at Woods Travel!
