This Sunday is Mother’s Day! I had my baby girl Lila this November, so this will be my first Mother’s Day. Naturally when we were deciding who should write our annual Mother’s Day gift guide, I volunteered.
Living in the mountains means I spend a lot of my family time outside enjoying the best mother of all … Mother Nature. So when it comes to a Mother’s Day present, I look for something that adds to my love of the outdoors. If your mom (or wife) is an outdoorsy gal, here are some gift ideas to make her day extra special.
This summer I want to be able to take Lila out on some hikes, so I’ve had my eye on a good hiking child carrier. REI has some great options I’ve been exploring. I love this idea for a mother’s day gift because it helps promote special mommy-child time outdoors.
Outdoorsy moms like to work up a sweat, but we also like to slow down and get pampered. And what’s one way to take a massage to the next level? Get one outside! Here in Lake Tahoe there are several places that will allow your mom to indulge your spa self AND her outdoorsy self.
