Mom's do everything for their families 365 days a year, from planning all the outdoor adventures and camping trips to making sure every sleeping bag, sweatshirt, water bottle, and all-important stuffy and blankies get there too. But she's not just by our side during the fun times. Mom is there for every runny nose, ear infection, book report, sports practice, and everything in between.
While we appreciate mom daily, once a year we can make sure moms feel extra special.
Whether mom likes snuggling up in a cozy outdoor loveseat with a warm cup of coffee or she wants to hit the trails, our curated collection of Mother's Day gifts has something every outdoorsy mom will love and use.
1. A comfy camp chair to snuggle in
Whether it's with her sweetie, her babies, or her fur babies, mom always wants to snuggle—even at camp. The two-person Kelty Low Loveseat is roomy and relaxing to sit in with comfortable, quilted 600D padding, wide armrests (complete with cupholders big enough to hold a Nalgene or wine glass), and a durable steel frame.
2. A ridiculously pretty coffee set-up for her morning brew
Nothing makes mom happier than enjoying her cup of coffee in peace. The Stanley Pour Over Coffee Set delivers that gourmet pour-over taste alongside Stanley's sturdy, reliable stainless steel that'll last for years. Best of all: This Pendleton collab rocks the heritage brand's iconic designs so she'll enjoy looking at this whether in the kitchen or at camp. As an added bonus, a portion of every sale goes to support the Wildland Firefighter Foundation, assisting injured firefighters and their families.
3. A durable, structured tote for daily hauls
Whether she wants to take it fishing or to soccer practice, the Yeti Camino Carryall is a dream for the person who's always prepared with extra snacks, layers, and a Mary Poppins of supplies. At 20 liters, this structured bag is big enough to hold everything for a daily haul but still small enough to not feel too cumbersome as you tote it along. It has two zippered pockets and two deployable dividers for max organization inside, along with a waterproof, easy-to-clean outer to keep up on her adventures. Plus, all six colors are really fun.
4. A fun and tasty box of chocolates
If you have no idea what to get her, chocolates are pretty much the safest bet for any hard-to-buy-for person—and sweets with cute packaging really go the extra mile. Bon Bon Bon hand-makes incredibly delicious two-bite treats in flavors like Crème Brûlée, s'mores, lemon bar, and even cereal. Each comes individually wrapped in a puzzle box so that breaking open the chocolate is almost as fun as eating it.
5. A farm-fresh bouquet, delivered to her door
Every mom loves flowers on Mother's Day, but if you don't live nearby and can't hand-deliver a bouquet, opt for the next best: Order her an arrangement from female-founded, minimal-waste Farmgirl Flowers. The thoughtful company partners with local farms and distributors to ship bouquets to every corner of the United States (and even internationally). Every arrangement is unique based on local offerings, which minimizes waste and takes the guesswork off you for which flowers mom will like best. Opt for delivery with a vase or in a sustainable, beautiful burlap wrapping that gives hand-picked, fresh-off-the-farm.
6. A relaxing hammock for summer afternoons
Surprise mom with the most relaxing gift money can buy, from one of the most reputable brands to ever do it. This 55-inch hammock from L.L. Bean is soft to the touch yet rugged against the elements. It's crafted with woven, moisture-wicking DuraCord yo keeps users cool and comfortable, and it's durable to lay back in once strung between two trees.
7. A cute pair of sunglasses for days on the water
Nothing says summer like a fresh pair of sunnies, and where better to look than every angler's favorite brand: Costa Del Mar. Whether mom loves to fish or just wants to hang on the beach or boat, Costa's offer the best polarization to see all the action under the water (and none of the glare on top). The Aletas are a universally-flattering style that use bio-resin to stay lightweight and double-injected Hydrolite for a great grip once the sweat starts.
8. A personal fire pit mom can take anywhere
Whether she's roasting marshmallows in the backyard or in her RV, the Solo Stove Mesa Tabletop Fire Pit is the perfect gear addition. The compact fire pit packs away into a travel bag for easy transportation, and can be used with pellets or wood. While the pit may be mini, the heat it produces is certainly not as Solo's signature 360 Airflow design keeps the flames burning hot. The durable stainless steel hold up to pressure and heat giving mom a long-lasting, quality gift.
9. A snazzy new pair of hiking boots
With spring and summer hikes looming on the horizon, no trail maven will say no to a new pair of hiking boots—especially when they're as gorgeous as the new Merrell Moab 3, designed in collaboration with Unlikely Hikers, the rad non-profit dedicated to supporting diversity on the trail. These shoes take the trusty design from one of Merrell's most popular women's hiking boots and add an eye-catching rainbow accent beneath the leather for a boot that just makes you smile.
10. A matching fleece set for max comfiness
Mom's are famous for making sure everyone else is outfitted while sporting the same threads she's worn for years. Give her wardrobe an update beloved outdoor apparel brand, Duck Camp. We love its Barton Fleece matching lounge set, which are made with 55% merino wool and are warm, moisture-wicking, and have odor-control to keep her comfortable whether around the house or around camp.
11. A self-care evening with this zen pamper kit
Give mom the gift of relaxation at home with this loaded self-care kit from Sand and Sea. It comes with the best of the essentials, including handmade lavender soap, a hand-poured 100% soy candle, a pink Himalayan salt scrub, lavender body oil, and a French clay mask. But we love this kit in particular because it includes a few other lovely giftables, like vegan lip balm, an exfoliation mitt, and a make-a-wish bracelet—talk about giving mom a roadmap to a relaxing day!
12. A camp dutch oven for meals over the fire
Every camp cook needs a dedicated campfire cast iron, and Lodge's Deep Camp Dutch Oven is the only one she'll ever need. Designed with three legs underneath for optimal airflow and a rimmed lid to hold hot coals on top, this dutch oven is designed to not only withstand the flame of a campfire, but to also provide an even heat on everything from biscuits to venison to wild berry cobbler. Whether you opt for the 2-quart or 10-quart size, this dutch oven can provide gourmet meals both outdoors and in the kitchen for generations.
13. A sleek smartwatch
Some people enjoy the rugged style of a backcountry smartwatch or the tech-forward aesthetic of an Apple Watch, but if mom wants the function of a smartwatch without sacrificing the sleek appearance of a traditional watch, the Garmin Lily is for her. Backed by Garmin's well-trusted technology, with this on her wrist, mom can keep track of everything from incoming texts to sleep and stress markers to how intense her workout was.
