Mother’s Day gifts are important, and you want to get it right. Whether your Mom went through 47 hours of labor to bring you in to this world or came along a little later and taught you why you shouldn’t hit people and drink bad milk, it’s the least you can do. Mother’s Day Gifts for the outdoor mom can be a little trickier.
The gift must be something that says, “I know what you like” without being super cliché. You might get bonus points and reign supreme as the favorite child if you nail an outdoor gift for your outdoor mom.
Here are our 10 Best Mother’s Day Gifts for the Outdoor Mom.
1: Cool Shades
Whether your mom is an avid hiker, kayaker, or just wants to look cool at the pool, the new Aleta frames from Costa del Mar will fit the bill. I’d highly recommend the 580P lenses. The poly carbonate lenses are lightweight but still offer all the visual benefits as the glass lenses.

2: Packable Hammock
What if you didn’t just figuratively or electronically hang out with your mom but you actually went and hung out with her in a brand new packable hammock? Yeah, you should definitely do that so here is a suggestion if you don’t already have one.

3: Outdoor Blanket
Mom deserves a break so head down to the park, spread your picnic mat for your little ones to play on; take a good book to the beach, sit and watch the big surf roll in; or wrap yourself up and be the warmest person around the camp fire; use it in your tent to cover your sleeping bag on those cold nights

You know your mom is the sherpa for the family even though her pants rarely have pockets. She’s gotta keep up with everyone’s everything so she might as well do it in style.

If a hike just isn’t going to cut it, you should take your mom on a trip. There are plenty of awesome places to see whether near your home town or in a completely different state. Take her. Make a memory.
