Mother's Day Gift Guide: 6 Sporty, Outdoorsy Picks

Gifts for the mom who can run a marathon, a career and a household


She’s a nature-loving nurturer with energy to spare. Likes: four-season hiking, film photography, high SPF sunscreen. Dislikes: Crocs, plastic grocery bags, people who don’t pick up after their pets. She taught you the importance of taking care of everything from the planet to your skin and she’s signed up for several charity runs this year already. You’re more likely to find her outside than in, and she makes a mean homemade granola. This sporty type with an earth mama thread (and a super-tight core) is always grateful to receive any gift because it’s the thought that counts—which is why it’s so fun to spoil her with practical, yet pretty items she wouldn’t buy for herself. Prepare brunch on the patio under the sun and let her bask in the glow of years of love and appreciation.
