Guys, FIVE Things Your Outdoorsy Gal Really Wants for Mother’s Day: Red Mountain Resort, SUP, Trail Running Shoes, etc.

Moms really want? Hammock time...

What does your gal really want for Mother's Day?

1 - Peace & Quiet
Wow her. Grab the kids and head out the door. Give her a couple hours or a day of peace & quiet. I call it "Hammock Time"... Tip: Honestly, it’s the tops!

2 - Breakfast in Bed with Decadent Berries
Find the most gorgeous organic, wild, happily picked berries – blueberries, raspberries, strawberries – load into a bowl. A side of yogurt. Some walnuts. Almonds. Dried cranberries. Tip: Add a delicious cup of freshly brewed joe and you’re golden.

Love, love, love my new trail shoes.
3 - New Trail Running or Hiking Shoes
Pamper her feet with the latest technology in trail shoes. You know she loves to get out and craves the trail. Get serious. Get her into a store that specializes in shoes and have an expert look at her foot shape. Find the right brand to match her feet and activity level. Tip: Keep an eye out for BrooksNorth Face. Saucony. 



4 - A Paddleboard - SUP
It’s hot. It’s trendy. It’s great for her core. And it’s zen time for mama as she gently glides through the wetlands, the lake, the meandering river and gets a workout to boot. What a treat. Shop smart - do your research. Each board company is unique and there are different boards for beginners to experts. Tip: REI has an enormous selection. Here's an inflatable version that Cousin T loves.


5 - An Adventure Away - for the 2 of u or w/a girlfriend
Happy adventuring mama
Pick a 3-4 overnight adventure. Leave the kids behind. Grab your gal and run. Create your own or find an outdoor company or resort to help. Yosemite. The Rockies. The Smokies..... I discovered Red Mountain Resort in St George, Utah last year. Stunning red rocks everywhere. Daily hikes from moderate to ass-kicking. Canyoneering and trips to Zion as add-ons. Book it! Tip: Look for "special offers" at places like Red Mountain Resort

Pamper your gal. She birthed your kids. And she'll love you even more, forever.
