This Sunday May 12, 2013 is Mother’s Day. It’s a great reminder to take a moment and thank our mother’s, grandmother’s and the mother’s of our children. From birth on, these fabulous women do so much for their families. Keep reading because we’ve got great Mother’s Day gift ideas from 4 different outdoor mom bloggers, a big discount on Sierra Trading Post and even a Mother’s Day Giveaway.
My wife made a rule a few years ago that when she gets flowers for Mother’s Day it actually means that I’m inviting her to go on a shopping spree. Apparently, flowers alone for Mother’s Day is not acceptable in my house. With that in mind, I contacted 4 outdoor adventure bloggers to see what they are hoping for this Mother’s Day.
They happily scoured the Sierra Trading Post site to make their own Mother’s Day Wish List. Check out the outdoor gear and clothing that these outdoor-minded moms have their eye on and keep reading to learn how you can win a $50 gift certificate to Sierra Trading Post.
Top Mother’s Day Gift Ideas From Real Moms
First up is Amelia, who lives with her husband and two young boys, aged 2 and 4 in Yellowstone National Park. As a family they love to hike, bike, run, ski and play outdoors. She writes over at Tales of a Mountain Mama in the hopes of inspiring others (through tips, stories, gear reviews and giveaways) to get outside and show the immense benefits of outdoor family play.
Amelia assured me that she had drastically cut down her wish list but still came up with the below 7 items. She thought this Big Agnes Sleeping Bag, Stonewear Designs Jacket, Moving Comfort Sports Bra, A JetBoil Cook System, Chaco Sandals, A Cookware System or Craghoppers Pants would make a great gift to help prepare her for her next family adventure.
Next, I reached out to Tiffany, The Campy Mom. Tiffany enjoys tent camping, fishing, hiking and just spending time outdoors with her hubby and 3 kids. She shares her adventures on her blog, A Little Campy, where she discusses everything from pitchin’ tents to pitchin’ fits. Camping tips, recipes, gear reviews and lots of laughs can be found–around the campfire.
Tiffany jumped at the opportunity to peruse Sierra Trading Post for a few Mother’s Day gift Ideas. She eventually settled on some fun items including the below Columbia Sportswear Jacket, ABO Hammock, Outdoor Research Hat, Columbia Sportswear Shirt, Chaco Sandals, and an Inflatable Kayak.
Our next outdoor loving mom is Jessica. She and her husband share their outdoor adventures at Bring-The-Kids. Their family of 5 loves to ski and explore the outdoors. Head over to their blog to see their latest adventure.
Our final Outdoorsy Mom is about to become a new mother. Olivia is a contributing writer on outsidemom.com. She is expecting her first child sometime in the next two weeks. When she’s not waddling around like a Thanksgiving Turkey, she likes to teach kids of all ages about science and the outdoors. She also enjoys hiking where there are no trails, taking pictures of flowers, and evenings spent around campfires (with friends and lots of marshmallows.)
