  • Giftory delivers the voucher instantly (to you or to her, your choice)
  • Mom chooses her experience (near or far, she just needs to get there)
  • Mom and a person of her choice (hopefully you!) gets to enjoy it!

Make sure to document the whole trip. May we recommend starting a blog? At least put together a scrapbook!
