I am a 26 year old grown woman, and my parents still request “spend time with me” as birthday and Christmas gifts…so if your mom is anything like mine, that is genuinely what she would want. 

Some people would find that super weird. But the older I get, the more I understand why and honestly the more I just want to spend quality time with my parents. Stuff is replaceable and they can get anything themselves. Time spent and memories made with you can’t be replaced.

Alright, I’m off my sappy soapbox now lol. I say go for it, I think she would love that.

Actually, I’ve gotten to a point at which I find the MOST amazing Christmas gifts are the gift of “experiences” together. I’ve given my mom gift cards for us to do a Paint and Wine place, a paint-your-own-pottery place (we like crafting and such!); I’ve given my husband a gift card to ride-along with a professional driver in one of those fancy, expensive cars… I give museum and nature place memberships (which have ALWAYS been used and enjoyed, and EVERYONE has ended up getting their own membership the following year). 

So, yeah, I think giving any kind of gift that allows for experiences together is welcome. 🙂 Museums, a day of horseback-riding (check if the facility treats their animals with care), paint and wine, nature preserves, light shows, dinner-and-a-show packages, thrill adventures (zip lining or white water rafting, etc.), whatever makes sense in your situation.

I think it’s a great idea. I know my mom would love a gift like that.

See if you can find a postcard from the city you live in and write it on that. It will be super cute.
