Wine Tasting Trip to Nashik
Let your beloved mom feast her eyes with undulating vineyards nestled on foothills and watch grapes being plucked, crushed, blended, bottled and shaped into finished products in a tasting room- gift her a perfect wine tour. This is not all! Wine tasting in Nashik is accompanied by cycling past the hills, enjoying sunset over Nashik’s serene setting and wine touring in Sula Vineyards.

Ayurvedic Spa Therapy in Kerala
She must have let her feet go swollen, back go aching and nails go brittle all these years. Why not let her pamper herself with best Ayurvedic spa therapies offered in India’s wonderland called Kerala? Ayurvedic Kerala massages will give her body the much desired rejuvenation. Yoga and meditation session too will reward with a holistic experience. Book a stay in Kumarakom Lake Resort or Taj Malabar, so that your mom experiences a luxurious spa therapy in Kerala. She will remember this pleasant Mother’s Day gift forever.
Delightful Swim in the Infinity Pool of Wildflower Hall
Perched atop the Himalayas, Wildflower Hall, Shimla, is no less than a fairytale luxury resort encapsulated by thick green forests. Its infinity pool located at an altitude of nearly 8,250 feet promises a surreal swimming experience. Keeping Shimla’s cool climate in mind, the outdoor pool is connected to a heated indoor pool. Here, swimming is rewarded with the pictorial view of snowy Himalayas and unending stretch of pine and cedar trees. Mothers love to get pampered, isn’t it?
Jaipur’s Best Looking Pair of Kundan Jewellery
Jewellery is what she has treasured for years and filled her cupboard with. She might still fancy a traditional Rajasthani jewellery, especially a handmade Kundan set from Bapu Bazaar. It won’t cost much to take her to Jaipur, walk past the old narrow alleys of Bapu Bazaar and gift her an exclusive pair of stone-studded Rajasthani Kundan from one of the old shops of the market. And you will see the million dollar smile on her face!
A Luxury Lunch at Taj Mahal Hotel
Taj Mahal Hotel in Appollo Porbandar, Mumbai, has several in-house restaurants that serve a range of fine delectable global cuisines. Reserve a table in either Shamiana, Masala Craft or Golden Dragon and treat your mom with authentic North Indian or Chinese cuisine on Mother’s Day eve. At the end, treat her sweet tooth with freshly baked cakes at La Patisserie. Your mom is definitely a great cook, but a fantastic meal by the side of Arabian Ocean will surpass all other gifts you have thought to surprise her with.
A Ticket to Casino in Goa
Who said mothers are not happening? They only scold for the innumerable parties you attend every month? LOL. There are many globetrotting moms who cannot just reject a ticket to casino in Goa. If Vegas is not in budget, Goa can do wonders. Roll the dice, spin the wheels, tap feet to thunderous music, let her win luck and take her to a crazy happening world. Chances Casino, Deltin Royale Casino, Casino Pearl are few to be named. Which one are you taking your mom to?
A Stay Amidst Wild in Orange County Resort
Orange County Resort, Kabini, set amidst 300 acres of spice and coffee plantations is admired for its exquisite hand-cut, rust-red Kodava architectural style accommodation units. As Kabini is sandwiched between two dense forest reserves, Nagarhole and Bandipur, a day or two in Orange County sums up to a luxurious stay amidst serenity of wilderness. Trip to Bylekuppe Tibetan Settlement, bird watching and jungle safari in Bandipur and Nagarhole sum up for an unforgettable Mother’s Day.
Mothers deserve a holiday, they deserve to be taken away from four-walled homes and daily chores to far off lands where spa sojourns, international cuisines, jungle safari, shopping extravaganza and vineyard tour happen to lend a mind-blowing trip she might have not imagined before. Loosen your purse strings this Mother’s Day to make it a memorable one for your creator.
To all mothers around the world, wish you Happy Mother’s Day!
