Looking for a way to show your appreciation for your favorite Mom on Mother’s Day? Check out these great ideas to make her next glamping trip one she will never forget.
Treat Her to Breakfast: Whip up some avocado toast using Coughlan’s Camp Stove Toaster ($4.99/cabelas.com) and serve it up with a spicy, virgin Bloody Mary. Check out Harry and David’s Bloody Mary Mix set which comes complete with garnishes ($49.99/harryanddavid.com).
Have Her Hikin’ in Style: From top to bottom, make sure Mom is well suited for any hike. REI’s Co-op Vented Explorer Hat is made of organic cotton and provides USP 50+ sun protection ($40/rei.com). L.L. Bean’s Darn Tough CoolMax Micro Cushion Socks ($21/llbean.com) are moisture wicking and quick drying and the performance fit helps eliminate bunching and blisters.
Comfort Beside the Campfire: While it might not be possible to give Mom a relaxing spa treatment while glamping, you can make sure her campfire chair provides all the right support. Consider gifting her with STRONGBACK’s Heavy Duty Camp Chair with Lumbar Support ($100/amazon.com).
Play Her Favorite Games: Is she a whiz at cards, or maybe rolling the old bones is her favorite pastime? Orvis offers the perfect compromise with their Campfire Games Set ($30/orvis.com), which includes 52 waterproof playing cards, six dice, and instructions for three different campfire-friendly games.
Sweets for the Sweetest: After a delightful dinner prepared by her crew, give Mom the perfect sweet treat the whole family can enjoy. Cuisinart’s Love 6 S’more Maker can prepare six s’mores at once on a camping grill ($14/homedepot.com). Gooey fun for the whole family!
Gourmet Greatness: Looking to give mom a little bit s’more? Try amping up her s’mores game for the occasion with a s’mores kit from 1927 S’mores ($18.00). Each component is made from scratch, and the attention comes through in taste. Appropriately named for the year the s’more was invented, this company is making flavor a priority, with offerings such as cocoa espresso, triple chocolate, and peppermint.
Guarantee the Memories: Make sure the trip and every detail of the experience is remembered for years to come. Check out the selection of camping journals at amazon.com. We like the Family Camping Journal ($8.99), which has more than 100 pages to record all the deets!
Give Her A Cozy Night’s Sleep: Ensure a perfect end to a perfect day by making light’s out is as cozy as possible for Mom. Start with L.L. Bean’s Flannel Camp Pillow ($30/llbean.com) that is lined with soft flannel on one side and is machine washable. Then toss in the L.L. Bean Mountain Classic Camp Blanket ($70/llbean.com) for the perfect lightweight blanket. And, since Mom’s got the day (and night) off, guarantee her an uninterrupted sleep with the REI’s Louis N Clark Comfort Eye Mask and Ear Plug Set ($13/rei.com).
