Quality time awaits outside the city limits this Mother's Day. Relaxing, refreshing, creative, exciting, and adventurous; Mums are as unique and varied as Melbourne's day trip options! Share your favourites with us in the comments? Here are a few of my favourites:

Peninsula Hot Springs

THE PAMPERED MUM: Fancy a mini-spa day with Mum? From $90 per person, you and Mum can book a Sanctuary & Tea package, with access to the Hepburn Bathhouse and Spa's Relaxation and Spa Pool, followed by Devonshire tea of fresh house-baked scones, jam and cream, and your choice of tea or coffee (more on the Pavilion Cafe here). Heading south? The Peninsula Hot Springs offer some gorgeous dining packages and other gift ideas, from $40 (Breakfast and Bathe, off peak, price current at time of publication)

THE CREATIVE MUM: Yarra Valley Chocolatarie Is celebrating ROCKY ROAD in May. Rock Around the Block classes offer an array of Rocky Road creativity for Mums. "Kick off with a Rocky Road infused hot chocolate, then sample seven Rocky Road flavours, an exquisite Rocky Road couverture truffle, and two different Rocky Road ice creams to inspire the creation of your very own Rocky Road bar to take home." Hour long classes 'behind the scenes' at the Chocolaterie will 'rock on' every Saturday of the Festival at 11.30am and 1pm ($45 per person; bookings essential on 9730 2777).

Can't make the trip? Check out the online shop and order something special for Mum; I am loving these chocolate thearapy body line of products.

THRILL SEEKING MUM: Would your Mum rather surf in the trees than soak in the spa? Send her tree surfing! The High Ropes Adventure course at the Enchanted Adventure Garden (Enchanted Maze) in Arthur's Seat has an incredible tree surfing challenge. Tree surfing for adults is $59 and includes park entry fees and other park activities. There is a Little Nippers course too, if you've got younger kids that would like to have a go. Grab an espresso before your booking (or perhaps a tea to calm you down afterward?) at the onsite cafe.

FOODIE MUM: Both Grange Cleveland Winery and Grange Bellinzona (Daylesford) will be hosting a Mother's Day Lunch on Mother's Day, Sunday, 10 May, 2015. The two-course meal with live music, a glass of wine and flower for each mum will make the day extra special. From $65pp, kids $25 (aged 5 12)
