We all know that mums are the unsung heroes of the holiday season. They coordinate all gifts, whip up delicious feasts, and transform the house into a hotel for everyone to enjoy. So if you're dreaming of an adventure-packed Christmas, you've got to be clever about convincing your mum because she’s already got a lot on her plate. Here are some tips and tricks to persuade your mom to make adventure happen this Christmas.
Make it Affordable
Christmas can be a costly time. With all the food, family gatherings, and fun to be had, it can really break the bank. That's why we recommend discussing some budget-friendly adventures we have available with mum. From exploring the ocean floor to conquering new terrain, we offer a range of affordable options to suit every adventurer. Imagine the look on your mum's face when she realises that an adventure gift can be just as cost-friendly as a traditional present.
Take the Stress Off
Around this time of year, moms are usually pretty stressed with all the holiday preparations. So, why not lend a helping hand by organising your gift for her? Now, timing is crucial here. Catch your mom when she's in her happy place and ask her what she's thinking of getting you this year. If it's the usual stuff, gently suggest that you're looking for a bit more of a challenge than another IKEA voucher. Offer to handle all the details, and let her know that all she has to do is put a bow on it and place it under the Christmas tree.
Give Her All the Details
Mums are pretty tech-savvy these days. You've spent the last few years helping her understand her gadgets, so why not make her life easier by sharing your favourite Adrenaline activities with her via a link? Activities like skydiving, V8 racing, snorkelling and more can easily be linked to her so she knows exactly what she’s getting herself into. You could even show her one of our blogs to help convince her. Once she can visualise the adventure, we can guarantee she'll be much easier to change her mind.
And If All Else Fails? Beg.
If you've given all those tricks a shot and she's still not willing to budge, you might want to consider begging as a last resort. Put on a grin that could give Santa Claus a run for his money, employ your most convincing puppy-dog eyes, and lay it on thick. You can either approach it subtly like a sledgehammer or even create a persuasive PowerPoint presentation explaining why you desperately need that gift. The choice is entirely up to you.
Ready to make adventure happen?
Convincing your mum to embrace adventure for Christmas is not as daunting as it may seem. By discussing the affordability of adventure experiences, taking the stress off her by organising your gift, and making the whole process easy for her, you'll increase your chances of getting an adventure for Christmas this year. With the right approach and some clever persuasion, you might just get exactly what you want under the Christmas tree.
