This Mother's Day, give the gift of a San Diego experience. While it's not something she can unwrap, an experience is designed to give her memories that will last longer than your quintessential Mother's Day gifts. Not that there is anything wrong with these gifts (my mom probably still has spa gift baskets circa 1988 under her sink), but if you're looking to give mom something a little different this year, consider an experience. We've done a little research, and have chosen our favorite San Diego experiences that would leave your mom feeling truly cherished this Mother's Day.
