For the best cup of coffee

The only thing better than a nice, quiet camping morning is a nice and quiet camping morning with a delicious hot cup of coffee.

Outdoor Gear

If you’re searching for a special Mother’s Day gift for a woman who enjoys being active and spending time out in nature, you cannot go wrong with outdoor gear. Whether she’s a fan of hiking, cycling, trail running, or leisurely walks in nature, your gift will surely bring a sparkle to her eyes and elevate her outdoor adventures.

For carrying all her hiking essentials

The Coulee 40 L expedition backpack from Mystery Ranch offers plenty of room and a smart, organization-forward design so that every piece of gear brought along on a hike is in its place and easy to access. There’s even a convenient sleeping bag compartment that makes it easy to carry equipment for an overnight stay in the outdoors. As far as comfort goes, this backpack has a harness designed specifically for women, padded straps, multiple adjustment options, and cushioned lumbar support. Your favourite hiker mom will be well equipped, perfectly packed, and ready for adventure.

For her training and stats-tracking goals

An activity smartwatch is a useful tool for anyone who’s serious about fitness or wants to take their training to the next level. With its sleek, minimalist design, multiple activity profiles and various data-tracking features, the Garmin Forerunner 265S GPS watch is perfect for a (very) wide range of sports and outdoor activities, and for just as many fitness levels and goals. So whether you’re shopping for the most active woman you know, a busy mom who wants to maximize her cardio sessions, or a fitness newbie who just got into trail running or swimming, you can rest assured that this gift will be put to good use.

For achieving greater heights

If your Mother’s Day gift is intended for a hiking enthusiast, a fresh new pair of Salewa’s Alp Trainer 2 Gore-Tex hiking boots might be exactly what you’re looking for. With their hard-wearing upper, breathable Gore-Tex liner, and high-performance Vibram® outsole, these mid-cut boots offer a perfect combination of support, comfort, and protection. Lightweight, comfortable, and reliable, they are an excellent choice for the adventurous mom who likes to hike rain or shine and on every type of terrain.


Clothing is a gift that’s both practical and fun. And with so many options, there really is something for everyone, from the stylish mom who’s always dressed to the nines, to the energetic mom who’s always up for an adventure. Whatever her style, lifestyle, and favourite activities, you can count on finding some comfortable and versatile pieces that she can wear outdoors, indoors, and for all kinds of occasions.

For the evening chills and beyond

When you give a cozy and colourful basic like Fjallraven’s Logo sweater, you can be sure that your gift will bring joy to its recipient long after Mother’s Day. This organic cotton sweater with a soft brushed interior is the kind of piece she will equally want to wear at home or on the go, to run errands or watch sunsets by the lake… In short, it’s comfort (and style) she can bring everywhere.

For effortless style and comfort all summer long

When Mother’s Day arrives, summer is only a few weeks away, so that means perfect timing for gifting clothing with bright colours and light, flowy fabrics. Stylish moms and practical dressers alike will appreciate the comfort, convenience, and casual elegance of the Borealis Fundy dress. This versatile piece has a relaxed fit and neckline, as well as an elastic waist that adds structure without being restrictive. It will transition smoothly from casual outdoor activities to social gatherings and even professional settings – a definite winner for any summer wardrobe.

For unexpected rainfalls and weather changes

As the saying goes, there is no bad weather, only bad clothing. That’s why the key to enjoying every moment outside of doors is to be well prepared to handle whatever the weather throws at you. And there’s a perfect Mother’s Day gift you can give to help your loved one do just that: a rain jacket. The Aspire II rain jacket from Outdoor Research is an excellent choice because of its stylish look and high-quality, waterproof yet breathable fabric. Available in a variety of colours and sizes, including plus sizes, this top-of-the-line rain jacket is also lightweight and takes practically no space in a bag, making it easy and convenient to carry anywhere.

For a blend of convenience and elegance

With sandal season around the corner, Mother’s Day is a perfect occasion to give a brand-new pair of versatile and wearable footwear like the Elle mixed strap sandals from Keen. With these sandals, there is absolutely no compromise; they offer cushioning, traction, stability, quality materials, and effortless, adaptable style that fits in everywhere. From home to errands, to happy hours and walks in the park, and everything in between, these are the sandals your beloved mom will reach for every time. A summer staple, to say the least.


Mother’s Day comes around the same time as the season opening for several species of fish in Quebec and Ontario. This is great news if you’re shopping for a mom who enjoys fishing, as this time of year will make her extra eager to go out on the water. Show your love and appreciation by giving her a gift that she can use repeatedly to enjoy one of her favourite hobbies.

For every water and every weather

Fishing waders can make an amazing gift for the angler mom in your life, especially if she’s impatient to get out on the water as soon as the season starts. Give her high-performance waders like the Freestone Stockingfoot from Simms, and she won’t even have to wait for warmer weather (or water) to cast her line. With a women-specific fit, lined hand pockets, neoprene gravel guards, and proven waterproof properties, this model offers the ultimate protection in any weather. Simms’s Tributary Stockingfoot waders are another great option in terms of performance and quality-price ratio.

For all-day coolness and comfort

If your favourite angler fishes mostly during the warmer months, a shirt that shields her from the sun and heat is nothing short of a must-have for her next trips. With Mobile Warming’s Mobile Cooling long-sleeve t-shirt, she can stay cool (and look cool) all day long thanks to a mineral-infused fabric with fast-drying, moisture-wicking, and temperature-regulating properties. The shirt also features a comfortable fabric, mesh panels for ventilation, and UPF 50 sun protection. No need to worry about anything other than fishing!

For her tackle box

For a fishing enthusiast mom who likes to cast her line from a boat, Berkley’s Flicker Minnow trolling kit is a guaranteed hit. This ready-to-go pack includes five of the most popular versions of Berkley’s famous Flicker Minnow, a lure that has yielded successful results in many fishing scenarios. What’s more, they all come in a Plano ProLatch storage box that keeps them conveniently organized and protected. Whether it’s for her first fishing kit or to upgrade her already-existing collection, this pack of lures will make a great addition.


Hunting clothing, boots, or gear can be the perfect Mother’s Day gift for a mom who’s a fan of the sport. Depending on her preferred choice of game, she may have to wait until fall to try her gift out in the field, but in all cases it will definitely get her excited for opening day.

For outstanding comfort all day long

Hunting often requires a lot of walking, standing, and moving around in all kinds of conditions, so what your favourite hunter wears on her feet is extremely important. With a pair of Danner’s Wayfinder hunting boots, she can keep her focus solely on the hunt. No weather or terrain are off limits thanks to their waterproof properties and high-performance insulation. Lightweight, durable and with excellent shock absorption, these camo-pattern boots will make an unforgettable Mother’s Day gift (though they’re so comfortable your mom may forget she’s wearing them).

For protection and unwavering concentration

Help your hunting enthusiast mom concentrate on her shooting accuracy and hunting skills with the Breeze hunting pullover hoodie from Connec. This technical shirt protects from bites and keeps pesky bugs away thanks to a built-in mosquito net, for less swatting and more hunting. Its light and stretchable fabric is also moisture-wicking and highly breathable, with mesh inserts for ventilation and UPF 40 protection. This breezy shirt offers the comfort, technical features, and protection needed to avoid every possible distraction.

For durable warmth in cold conditions

If the hunter mom in your life has never heard of the multilayer system, this is your sign to introduce it to her this Mother’s Day. Give her the gift of all-day comfort and temperature regulation on her hunting excursions with a high-quality baselayer from the trusted hunting brand Remington. The Pioneer tights and long sleeve baselayer are perfect for layering under her hunting pants and jacket. Made from high-quality synthetic materials, they offer insulation, breathability, and moisture-wicking properties, while their flat stitching and brushed interior ensure a comfortable fit that lasts, even after hours of wear.
