Mother’s Day is a holiday honoring motherhood that is observed in different forms throughout the world. In the United States, Mother’s Day 2021 occurs on Sunday, May 9. Take this day and really celebrate your mom, take her outside, go for a walk and honor her and tell her how very much she means to you.
Here are a few ideas from some outdoor brands we think are great fits for outdoor moms and moms that hunt.
5.11 Shella Pants
5.11 creates cargo and tactical pants for women, but they do not just shrink the typical men’s tactical pants and slap a new label on them. These pants are built from the ground up and are pared down to provide just the essentials. The 5.11 Shella Pants are great for weekend cookouts, adventures in the outdoors, and camping. Mom is going to be pretty darn excited to get a pair of these pants or any of the great gear from 5.11.
Ecovessel BOSS Stainless Steel Growler
The 64 oz. BOSS was named “Best Insulated Growler” by Craft Beer and Brewing Magazine this year, but that is not the reason that mom will love this particular growler. It is also not that the TriMax™ Triple Insulation keeps cold beverages cold for 150 hours and hot for up to 24 hours. Those options are pretty amazing, but the feature that will keep mom smiling from ear to ear every time she uses this EcoVessel is the built in infuser. The infuser allows you to pour in sun tea and fill it with wedges of lemon or use the growler to create cold brewed coffee and tea or water/wine with citrus wedges. Mom will love the dual action lid on this insulated container because no matter what you put into it, it’s super easy to open and no one likes wrestling with a lid.
This is one fantastic day-to-day tool that mom will love owning. Check out the BOSS Stainless Steel Growler.

Check out the LIFA Active Solen Line up from Helly Hansen.
It’s not very often, (READ NEVER,) that I would recommend a vegan or gluten-free desert. It is just not in my wheel house. I like bread, cake, cookies, steak, hunting and fishing and I eat what I hunt. However, I got a box of these for Valentine’s Day to test out with my wife, and she loved them. I had a few and they were exceptional. I would buy them again for my wife. These candies are handmade, intense and exceptional. Check them out at Misaky.Tokyo.
