Mother’s Day is the day we celebrate moms across the nation. It’s also the day most of us end up doing some last-minute panic shopping for our moms. But this year, why not try something a little different and give mom the greatest gift of all – the great outdoors! We’ve put together a list of some thoughtful and practical gifts that your mom will not only use, but love.
Ice Bucket Table
When is the last time you saw your mom dragging a giant red cooler out to the pool? Probably not very often, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t want a cold drink nearby. Enter the Alu-Mont Ice Bucket Table. Whether she wants to ice down a couple of beers or entire wine bottle, this handy table does the trick while still looking stylish. Plus, it functions as a table with the lid on or off, so she has a place to rest her beverage.
When the sun goes down, it is time to break out the marshmallows and light the fire pit. Pits come in such a wide variety of styles that there is something to match any décor: round, cube, chiminea, tabletop, and in-ground, the choices are endless. In early and late spring, when nights are cooler, they keep the party going. Any time of year, though, a fire pit adds ambiance and atmosphere to your gathering. Is the heat too much? Fill it with tea lights instead.
Mother’s Day can be any day she wants when there’s a hammock beckoning for her to gently rock her cares away. They are synonymous with total relaxation and long summer days lazing between palm trees sipping Mai Tais and Piña Coladas. Hammocks are the perfect way to spend Sunday afternoons napping or reading books, or just taking a break from life.
As moms spend most of their day in the spotlight, perhaps a bit of shade is just what she needs to cool down after a long day shinning for everyone else. Umbrellas have come a long way in design and style, and with dozens of options you’re sure to find the perfect one for her little piece of heaven.
Moms and Mother Nature go hand in hand, and this list of gift ideas is a great way to make sure you’re always her favorite!
