Spoil your Mum this Mother’s Day with a gift that she’ll really love, not just pretend to love. From small thoughtful gifts to larger ones that will ensure you are the favourite child, there’s something for everyone in this Mother’s Day gift guide for the outdoorsy Ma.

Magazine Subscription

wilderness mag

A magazine subscription is a gift that keeps on giving. Every month your Ma will be reminded how awesome you are when a new issue turns up in the letterbox. Become the fave child in no time. There are many outdoors type magazine out there that your Ma might like. This Ma rather enjoys Wilderness Magazine.

Price: Wilderness Mag from $6.50/month (website only) to $110 annually (print, digital and website)

Foot Care

Ma’s feet take a beating on all those hikes and other outdoor activities. Pamper her with some foot care and get her hooves back to not so gross in no time. She’ll thank you when she can wear jandles (flip flops for non kiwi’s) without cringing.

Price: from $13 – $24

Waterproof Gear

Keep your Mum dry with a waterproof jacket. Let’s face it, a wet Mum is a grumpy Mum (and no one likes a grumpy Mum). She’ll thank you every time she pulls it out of her pack in relief.

Price: $35 – $60

Neck Gaiter

A neck gaiter can be used as a headband, neck warmer and face shield. Give your Ma the gift of warmth this Mother’s Day.

Price: $8.99 – $9.90

Socks

The ultimate Dad gift with a twist. Give your Ma cushy feet with some hiking socks. She’ll think that she’s walking on air with these cushioned hiking socks. Walking on air is much nicer than walking on hard ground. You’ll be the Bees Knees in her eyes with this gift.

Price: $18.99 – $21.99

Beanie

Everybody loves a warm head, especially Mum. Give her a plain ole beanie or give her a Bluetooth one so she can tune out the world (and the children). I know which one I would prefer….

Price: $12.99 – $13.99

Books

Let Mum get taken away with a good book. She can relax at the end of a hard day and immerse herself in the wild from the comfort of her own home. The best of both worlds.

Price: $7.00 – $34.00

Trousers


Comfort is an important factor when outside in the wild. Gift her some choice as hiking trousers that will let her move through the wilderness with ease. Plus, she’ll be the best looking Mum on the trail with these trousers.

Price: $19.99 – $29.99

Hiking Boots


Hey, Joe! Hey, Amelia! This is the part you need to pay attention to. My boots are a little worn and torn, a pair of hiking boots would be muchly appreciated. Just sayin’.

My own Mum has a pair of Keens (that happen to be the exact ones pictured here), and swears by them. She makes me jealous on every hike we go on together with her lovely Keens while my boots flap and soak up the water, a bit battered an torn.

Price $124.00 – $235.00

Final Thoughts

Right, I have given you the tools, now it’s up to you to make it happen. Go get your Mum the best gift for Mother’s Day now. It doesn’t have to be big and expensive, just something that shows that you have thought about her. It really is the thought that counts (except you Joe, I really need some new boots).
