What better excuse do you need to treat mum than Mother’s Day? However, what exactly do you buy her to show her exactly how much she’s valued? Why not book her a holiday somewhere hot and sunny – a great chance to take a break from ‘mum duties’, soak up the sun and just relax.
From adrenaline junkies and shopaholics, to the sun worshippers and spa lovers, Direct Holidays offer packages to suit all mums, whatever their interests.
The bright lights and cash registers of Vegas are calling! Gambling isn’t the only thing Las Vegas is famous for – it’s also a hot shopping destination. Most of the big hotels have their own shopping malls or arcades lined with designer shops. Alternatively, tell mum to head to Crystals shopping centre on the strip – all 500,000 sq ft of it! And with the dollar/sterling exchange rate remaining strong, you can get even more for you money.
The Thrill-Seeking Mum
Holidays to Mexico are the perfect solution for mums who crave action and like to live life to the max. Whether she fancies zip-lining through the jungle at speeds of 160 mph, skimming over the warm waters of the Caribbean Coast, or snorkelling with exotic fish among the coral reefs, Mexico will satisfy all of mum’s needs!
The Sun Worshipper Mum
Sometimes mum just needs a week off to do nothing but lie on a sun lounger and be waited on hand and foot, so spoil her rotten with a romantic trip for her and dad to St Lucia, with its picture perfect crystal clear waters and soft white sands. If you think she’d prefer somewhere closer to home then the Canary Islands, just a four-hour flight away, make a great alternative. The sun shines all year round there too, so even in March and April temperatures are a balmy 20 degrees Celsius.
The Fun-Loving Mum
Although most mums would appreciate a break from parenting duties, others love nothing more than having their family around them, so a family holiday to Greece could be just the ticket. Rhodes, with its pretty beaches, traditional tavernas and gourmet restaurants, bars and casinos, offers fun for all the family.
For the mum who really loves her food, what better place than Italy! Famous for its pretty views and amazing scenery Malcesine, on Lake Garda, is somewhere her and dad – or one of the girls – can enjoy traditional Italian cuisine against a stunning backdrop.
The Spa-Loving Mum
Mums definitely deserve a bit of pampering at this time of year and for spa-loving mums Crete offers fantastic variety. Guaranteed sunshine and a host of world-class contemporary spa resorts means she’ll be spoilt for choice. The only danger is she might love it so much she won’t want to come back!
