We have the perfect gift guide for your sporty mum who hates getting scented candles and bath salts in her stocking at Christmas. From sporty tours to cruises and classes, here’s where to start your hunt for gifts.
The outdoorsy mum
If your mum loves the great outdoors, why not deliver her the ultimate water-based day out on a Melbourne Boat Hire self-drive cruise? Their self-drive cruise packages allow you to cruise the Yarra on-board one of their signature vessels, with no license or experience required.
Looking for something a bit more adventurous? Send mum out fishing on pleasure cruising club boat – you may even get a free dinner out of it. Who says giving can’t turn into receiving?
If water sports aren’t her thing, you could always send mum along to some golf lessons at Big Swing Golf. Big Swing Golf is the ultimate indoor golf experience with state-of-the art simulators, conveniently located and ready to play – and always in air conditioned comfort. Perfect for summer.
Has it been a while since mum updated her bike? Head into Lekker bikes this Christmas. Their bike designs are inspired from a combination of elements taken from Dutch cycling heritage and Australian beach culture.
The zen mum
If your mum loves her yoga and raves about the benefits of Pilates, why not grab a pair of bold leggings from Lady Bold for her stocking? Exercise never looked so good.
Searching for something perfectly zen for underneath the tree? You could always buy mum a membership at Breathe. Featuring several of Melbourne’s most prominent yogis and a comprehensive mix of styles, you’ll find traditional instruction in alignment, sequence and form as well as innovative approaches to applying yoga in the modern world.
The touring mum
The Australian Open is looming – and for your sporty mum, it’s surely her favourite time of year in Melbourne. Another great gift idea is the Australian Open guided tour from Tennis World – plus, you can always pick up a new racket while you’re at it.
Perhaps your mum would prefer a tour that sends her further afar? Tours on Trike is the answer: Melbourne Tours on Trike offers three wheeled adventure Trike Tours from Docklands every day and all day.
