Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 9. Show Mom you care with these outdoor gift ideas.
Whether for your mom, wife, friend, or furbaby co-parent, grab one of these unique gifts and make the outdoorsy woman in your life happy.
Whether Mom loves a daily smoothie, iced coffee, or water to go, this insulated straw cup is sure to become an instant favorite. The 26-ounce capacity carries a hefty serving of beverage while remaining comfortable to hold.
The double-wall insulation keeps drinks cold (and hands warm). And the straw top is wonderfully convenient for all-day sipping. And we especially like that it’s darn near indestructible.
This is a gift the entire family will enjoy. As one of the best tents of 2021, it’s a venerable palace of a camping tent. With nearly vertical walls, a rectangular floor, and 75 inches of peak height, there’s space to hang out with your family, sit in chairs, lie on cots, or whatever a group of four would desire.
It weighs just 10 ounces and packs down to about the size of a softball. The Ultralight Hammock from Grand Trunk is made of breathable polyester material, so it’s great for camping and relaxing in the park.
Had it with city life? BioLite’s Solar Home 620 kit turns any dwelling into an off-grid sanctuary. Be it your campsite, cabin, or car, the Solar Home 620 adds illumination and entertainment — powered by the sun.
The kit includes a 6W solar panel, an MP3/FM radio, and three hanging lights that each put out 100 lumens. This makes a great gift for car campers, van lifers, and doomsday preppers alike.
This chair rocks — literally. Not only can you enjoy a rocking chair while sitting around the campfire, but the sunshade will keep you comfy all day long. It folds up for easy transport and is built to last. We’ve been using one regularly for more than 2 years, and it’s still going strong.
This handy (and award-winning) knife is small enough for everyday carry and big enough to get the job done. Open boxes, prep camp dinner, or whittle away — this sharp blade is up for the task.
These socks tick all the major boxes: soft, moisture-wicking, and made in the USA. Made for running and cycling, the seamless construction keeps you blister-free. And the moderate compression keeps socks in place no matter what.
Available in a variety of prints, including our new favorite national park designs, Swiftwick socks are as fun as they are useful.
Does the mom in your life love spending time in the garden? Whether she’s nurturing her roses or growing the county’s largest pumpkin, these pruners are a must-have.
Opinel is known for making wonderfully simple and reliable knives. And they’ve brought that same tech to these garden shears. They’re sharp, grippy, and easy to use. All gardening, farming, growing mamas need a pair.
Say goodbye to single-use plastic wrap and hello to Earth-friendly Bee’s Wrap. Handcrafted in Vermont from organic cotton and sustainable beeswax, this set will take lunch to a whole new level.
The wraps protect food from dust, the rest of your sack lunch, and any other gear in your pack. Plus, they’re reusable and much nicer than plastic wrap.
This one-inch-thick, extra-cushioned mat turns any room into a home gym. It prevents slipping and provides enough padding to comfortably move, stretch, and flow through asana. And with a 4.6-star rating and more than 7,800 reviews, it’s obvious that we’re not the only ones who think this is a winner.
Shopping for a new parent who loves camping? This pint-size infant sleeping bag is a winner. The compressible down keeps babies warm without taking up precious pack space. It zips open from the bottom for easy diaper changes and is machine-washable.
Just because you have a baby doesn’t mean you can’t go camping. This sleeping bag is also available in toddler sizes.
Make camping that much more fun with a packable pillow. Made from leftover bits of Therm-a-Rest sleeping pads, the Therm-a-Rest Compressible Pillow gets double points for comfort and recycling. This pillow is also small enough to be easily stashable and packable for road trips and air travel.
This mug checks all the important boxes: insulated, durable, and complete with a lid. Plus, it’s like two gifts in one, as each MiiR product funds trackable giving projects.
Just register the “Give Code” to find out exactly how your mug helps. Pair with the oh-so-packable MiiR Pourigami for the ultimate camp coffee gift.
Hawaiian brand Olukai is known for making shoes that work hard and look great. And these sneakers are no exception. The light weight makes all-day wear comfortable, and the mesh liner aids breathability.
We’ve worn these with and without socks and found them delightful either way. And the back heel easily folds down for times when you want to slip them on quickly. These are sure to become a summer favorite.
Give Mom the gift of cool, comfortable relaxation. This bamboo jogger set is incredibly soft and well made. We’ve been washing and wearing a pair for the past six months, and it looks as good as it did on day one. The wide waistband is ultra-comfortable, and the tapered ankles add utility.
The moms on our team can’t get enough of this super comfy jumpsuit. It’s made from 91% recycled polyester and 9% spandex. And the DWR coating means it sheds water like a champ. The belt adds a dash of style, and we’ve found these pack up well for travel.
You know what moms love? A clean house and less work. Enter the robovac. This magical creature cleans the floor (it vacuums and mops) so Mom doesn’t have to.
It docks easily, has sensors so it doesn’t fall off the stairs, comes with a washable filter, and is app-compatible. Best of all, it’s easy to use, cleans like a champ, and means less time cleaning and more time outside adventuring.
Honey Stinger nailed these peanut butter and chocolate recovery snacks. The Recovery Chocolate Cracker Bars are a favorite after a long ride or a challenging training session.
Packed with healthy carbs and plant-based protein (10 g), these bars have a nice balance of sweet and salty flavors. Trust us, you want to give these a try.
Know someone who’s obsessed with their furbabies? This dog tag is a must-buy. Known for making silicone rings, QALO is upping the dog tag game. No more annoying jingling or sharp edges.
With the QALO dog tag, you get a sturdy silicone tag that is silent, stink-free, and stylish. Available in a wide variety of colors and designs to match the mom and pooch in your life.
