Unique Gifts for the Outdoorsy Mom in Your Life

Unique Gifts for the Outdoorsy Mom in Your Life

It’s the time of year where we get to celebrate the women who raised you (or who are helping to raise your own kids)!

This Mother’s Day gift guide list is about finding the perfect outdoorsy gift for the adventurous mom in your life. If your mom would rather hike or camp than go to a salon, then we have the right list for you. Any of these outdoor gifts would make great gifts for that special outdoorsy mom (or mom of your kids, stepmom, grandma, aunt, sister, friend, neighbor, etc.) on your list.  

You mom probably often puts the family needs above her own, so treat her this year to some unique outdoorsy gifts. Moms deserve to be comfortable and have quality camping gear just as much as the rest of the family. 

We’ve put together a gift list perfect for all types of outdoor-loving moms. If your mom loves glamping or backcountry camping, we’ve got the perfect gift for her!

Camping Gear Gifts

Whether your Mom is an avid camper or a casual camper, unique camping gear can make a perfect gift this Mother’s Day.  

Our camping gear gift guide is loaded up with all the gear your wilderness-loving mom needs — plus a little extra.

Cozy Camping Comforts

There’s nothing worse than waking up on the morning of a camp trip absolutely freezing. Give your mom the gift of comfort with all the cool weather gear she needs so she can get the most out of her camping trip.

Our rooftop tent warming blanket and the sherpa-lined Anywhere Poncho make the perfect gifts for those moms needing some extra warmth while camping. Whether that's around the camp fire or sleeping in their rooftop tent. 

Pair her new warming blanket or sherpa-lined poncho with a cozy Freespirit Sweatshirt.

For the ultimate cozy camping gift, consider our Freespirit Sleeping Bag. Coming in both double and single sizes, our sleeping bag is lined with a comfortable flannel fabric and can be completely zipped apart to be used as a blanket around the fire.

ReadyLight Camp Lantern

Treat your mom to not one gift but four with our 4-in-1 ReadyLight Camp Lantern. Give the gift of light, power, and music all in one.

Our ReadyLight Camp Lantern comes equipped with a dimmable light, light pod, a speak pod, and can charge devices. Your mom will never need another light for camping again — unless you upgrade her to our ReadyLight Gen 2!

Experience Gifts

Plan a gift that your mom will never forget. The best gift a mother can receive is quality time together. Planning a trip or a fun outdoor activity is a sure-fire way to make mom happy this Mother’s Day. 

From site-seeing to camping, below are plenty of options to plan a truly unique outdoorsy experience for your Mom this Mother’s Day.

National Parks Pass

If your Mom loves to travel, hike, and see beautiful sites, give her a National Parks Pass. The pass covers the entrance fee for the driver and all passengers in a personal vehicle. 

The National Park Pass is honored at sites managed by the Forest Service, National Park Service, Fish and Wildlife Service, Bureau of Land Management, Bureau of Reclamation and Army Corps of Engineers.

Good for a year’s worth of visits, the pass allows your Mom access to over 2,000 recreation sites across America, including all the National Parks.

Plus — by purchasing the pass you’re supporting the National Parks. And who doesn’t love supporting our nation’s natural treasures?

Campground Reservation

For the mom who loves to camp, surprise her with a camping reservation. There are plenty of ways to find a good camp spot. You can start by checking reservation availability through the National Park Service, Recreation.gov, and Reserve America.

For a more picturesque experience, you can try to book a highly sought after campsite. There are endless beautiful campsites across America, finding a site that has gorgeous scenery shouldn’t be hard at all. 

You could really elevate her camping experience with one of our premium roof top tents. With our roof top tents that can pop up in seconds, she can spend less time worrying about planning the camping trip with the kids and more time enjoying the camping trip.

Plus — kids love camping in a roof top tent! High up from the ground with a different view of the woods from each window, they feel like they’re in a treehouse. For more tips on roof top tent camping with kids, check out our guide to roof top tent camping with kids.

Animal Lover Camping

For the mom who’s a nature lover and an animal lover, book her a truly unique camping experience that involves animals, too!

HipCamp offers camping reservations at multiple different farm locations throughout the US. Your mom could camp with goats, llamas, alpacas, horses, and even at a zoo. Most of the farms offer an interactive experience, elevating this camp experience to one your mom won’t forget.

The Triple Dream Farm offers a way to elevate your camping experience by offering a beginners horse riding lesson. Plus, if you happen to fall in love with a horse, you can pay a little extra to have one camp with you at your site!

Winery Camping

For the mom that likes a little more luxury with her camping, book a campsite on a winery. HipCamp and Harvest Host offer campers an intimate experience at vineyards while getting a chance to do some wine tasting.

There are many wineries across the country that offer visitors a chance to camp in their vineyards. Your mom can wake up in the morning and open her tent to see a beautiful sunrise over the vineyards.

4R Ranch Vineyards and Winery in Texas offers restrooms, showers, Wi-Fi, and firewood as amenities included at the 11 tent campsites. If your mom loves hiking or biking, you’ll also be happy to know there’s a 9.4-mile mountain bike trail on the pet-friendly vineyard.

A winery camping trip is a great opportunity to give mom some rest and relaxation away from the kids, while also getting to enjoy being out in nature.

Treat Your Outdoorsy Mom This Mothers Day

The best way to wow mom this year isn’t through a traditional Mother’s Day gift. Give her an outdoor experience or unique camping gift she’ll treasure.

With warmer weather on the way, it's the perfect time of year to elevate your mom’s camping experience with some Freespirit camp gear.
