Moms who hike are the coolest. They’re out there enjoying nature, introducing their babies or kids to the trail and the outdoor lifestyle, or just sharing a meditative stroll through the woods with them. Or maybe they’re using nature to escape from their kids for a quick moment of peace and serenity. Either way, it’s inspiring and exulting to see the moms out there beating the ol’ dusty trail.
And what could be a better Mother’s Day gift than outfitting the mom(s) in your life with some cool new hiking gear? Then every time she laces up her hiking boots, puts on her sunglasses, or pulls out her rain jacket, she’ll be thinking of you. And every time she goes out for a hike, you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing she’s using the gear you got her.
Here are a few of our favorite Mother’s Day gifts, compiled from some of the best outdoor products we’ve come across this year. And they’re all perfect for any mom who likes to hike.
