For Moms with Little OnesShotgun
Adventure moms know that getting the whole family outside can be a monumental task! Products that make it easier for everyone to enjoy the Great Outdoors together are always a win.

The revolutionary shotgun child bike seat/handlebar combo, for kids aged 2-5, lets kiddos sit right up front, giving mountain bike moms the ultimate co-pilot for epic rides.

A wide, shallow brim keeps the sun out without restricting vision on the road or trail.

Nights around the campfire have never looked so good.

For Water-Loving Moms
Moms who love lake life will love you forever if you give them an inflatable SUP from Cascadia Board Co. Based on Vancouver Island, Cascadia has been building boards for more than 20 years. Their Asana 2.0 Lotus board is the ultimate all-round inflatable cruiser board for beginners and intermediates. It’s super stable and comes with “yoga forward features” for those who want to downward dog on the water. It also comes with a kayak conversion kit for total flexibility.

If gadgets are your mom’s go-to, a solar-powered smart watch is sure to put a smile on her face.
