Mother’s Day is a holiday honoring motherhood that is observed in different forms throughout the world. In the United States, Mother’s Day 2022 occurs on Sunday, May 8th. 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.
Royal Robbins Adventure Dress
What will your mom be wearing on Mother’s Day? She might be wearing some beautiful apparel from Royal Robbins if you get to shopping for her. The Women’s Vacationer dress is the perfect dress for mom especially with summer travel coming up. This dress is perfect around the campsite and perfect for the beach, the pool and even a night out on the town. We bought this dress for our resident mom and it has already been on a few adventures and has quickly become a favorite. Royal Robbins has continued to impress us with great styles and a high level of quality for men and women.
KickerBall by Swerve Ball
Moms love to play with their kids and we know the KickerBall is a hit with moms and dads and especially with the kids. This ball swerves, dives and curves for crazy kicking action and its soft so all ages like kicking it. It doesn’t take a ton of effort to make it curve and it doesn’t go all that far so moms not going to get tired out chasing after it. We got this on a whim and love it.
High Camp Flasks Torch Tumbler 2-Pack
Running around chasing a ball can get tiresome and some moms like a nice relaxing sip of whiskey after a long day of taking care of the kiddos. It is nice to have a dedicated cup for a little sip in the outdoors and these stainless steel shot glasses are just the ticket to have along on any adventurous camping trip. Check these out and all of the great gear at High Camp Flasks.

It holds sunglasses, sunscreen, a water bottle or two and a wallet and some bandaids for the little ones. Perfect for Adventure and super economical.
HOKA ONE ONE W KAWANA
We picked up a pair of these for mom after a recent trip to the hospital. Every nurse we saw over 3 days was wearing a pair of HOKAs and they all raved about them. We have been wearing them for summer adventures for quite some time and it was the perfect excuse to get mom into a pair. These are extremely comfortable and the modified crash pad with SwallowTail™geometry and Kawana’s beveled
heel creates a broader, flatter surface designed for smoother heel strikes allows mom to be free to use these in gym, on the trail or running around with the kids on errands or a walk alone in the park.

We love the Midland GXT Pro Series radios in our family to keep everyone on the same page. They are great for convoys and family trips where we have two vehicles and perfect for adventures in the outdoors and even in the theme park or around the neighborhood. It’s nice to have a waterproof radio that can handle anything you can throw at it. The Midland GXT1050 is the complete package with everything you need in a complete two-way radio package.

RiotPWR ESL Gaming Controller for iOS
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.
Sometimes moms just need about 30 minutes of peace and quiet and the only way to get that is to allow the kiddos to play their favorite games. This controller allows the kids to use a hand held controller to play games on the Iphone and quickly level up when playing against others. With a little practice mom might even get that high score and keep the kiddos striving to be better. The Riot controller brings a little peace and maybe a touch of competition.
