Mother’s Day is just around the corner (May 8th!), and you don’t want to be the one person who forgets! It’s the perfect time of year to snag some last-minute deals for some late-season spring riding! If your mom loves to shred that fresh pow-pow as much as you do, this list will give you a handful of gift ideas she’ll love.
Your momma deserves comfort on and off the slopes, and these socks from Darn Tough will give her exactly that! Featuring five comfort pads to protect common pressure points while riding, these performance-fit socks will show your mom some serious love without breaking the bank. The Merino wool and fine-gauge knit construction wicks moisture, dries quickly, and is ultra-breathable and odor-resistant. These socks are specifically designed to eliminate pressure and reduce heel lift, and they are so durable that they’ll last a literal lifetime. And if for some crazy reason, they don’t—no worries! Darn Tough will replace them no questions asked!
Hestra brings top-rated mittens to the market year after year, and for obvious reasons! Your mama bear’s paws will never get cold in the Heli Ski Mitts. And you’re lucky, these are still available in a range of sizes and colors. Made of soft leather with a slim fit and profile, these are windproof, water-resistant, and highly breathable. The medium-heavy fleece lining will keep her warm and cozy all day long!
One thing you most definitely won’t be doing with a gift like the Heartbreaker is breaking your mom’s heart! There’s no better time to surprise your mom with a brand new deck than when it’s on an end-of-season sale. Does your mom love to take park laps with you? Does she rock that floaty, surfer style? Does she throw down butters any chance she gets? If your mom is a lover of more playful riding, she will be over the moon with this board from Ride. It’s soft-flexing and forgiving for a smooth, easily controlled ride she’ll swoon over. It has a twin shape with a rocker-camber-rocker construction and features a performance aspen/paulownia core, impact plates under the bindings, and crazy durable Slimewalls. Let’s be honest, mom deserves this board!
A woman can never have enough baselayers! Your mom will be stoked about this piece, and your wallet will be stoked about the price. Burton’s Midweight Crew Top is made of DRYRIDE Ultrawick fabric that has been scientifically engineered to pull sweat away from the body and towards the outer layers. The mid-level weight provides versatile warmth that is suitable for all conditions. The slim, close-to-body fit makes everyone look great, and the chafe-free seams feel smooth and soft against the skin. The cozy four-way stretch offers incredible mobility, and despite all that mobility, Burton’s Agion odor-proof tech will keep momma fresh! This top is a sweet and simple way to help your mom stay warm, dry, and totally happy in the elements all day long!
What better time to hook your mom up with an absolutely epic pair of goggles than Mother’s Day? The Lusis from Giro offer a sleek, clean look with a ton of clarity from their semi-frameless design. The Lusis feature the Slash Seal quick lens interchange system and include two VIVID polycarbonate lenses, so when Mother Nature changes her mind, your mother can be quick to adapt! EVAK vent technology will help to eliminate fogging and protect from the elements with a comfortable, durable foam seal. The triple-layer face foam with plush fleece facing lays smooth on the skin, making these goggles ultra-comfortable. This is the perfect opportunity to set your mom up with some high-tech gear at a reasonable price!
6. Hydro Flask 40oz Wide-Mouth Water Bottle
Mom has spent her whole life reminding you to stay hydrated. Now it’s time to return the favor! Get her hooked up with the ultimate fan favorite in hydration—the 40oz wide-mouth water bottle from Hydro Flask! The TempShield double-wall vacuum insulation keeps liquid ice cold for 24 hours and deliciously hot for a full 12! Made of pro-grade stainless steel, there will never be a weird flavor transfer to deal with, plus, it’s mighty durable and can take a beating without becoming all banged up! Color Last powder coat means this bottle is conveniently dishwasher-safe and will always hold its color. Speaking of, there are countless colors to choose from, so you will have no trouble picking out your mom’s favorite!
7. Crescent Moon Gold 13 Snowshoes
For a super versatile and fun option for your snow-day-loving momma, why not a pair of top-of-the-line snowshoes? Whether the two of you are looking to take on some gnarly backcountry days together or you want to make her more comfortable on her winter day hikes, the Crescent Moons are a perfect choice. These snowshoes are made with a woman’s shorter, more narrow strides in mind. They are highly responsive, shockingly lightweight, and super easy to maneuver, complete with a beautifully designed binding system that is not only extremely functional and user-friendly but very durable as well. Included is a pair of heel lifts to make climbing significantly easier. The Gold 13s have received countless accolades as some of the absolute best women’s snowshoes available for the past 22 years. Get these for your mom and bring her on a fun, end-of-season adventure!
If you are on the hunt for that perfect gift to top all gifts, the Dynamiss is going to be it! Built for the baddest of the bad lady riders, this board shreds hard! With Lib Tech’s C3 Camber quiver-killer, the Dynamiss is not to be taken lightly. If your mom loves to bomb groomers, surf deep powder, and slash big, bold lines in technical terrain, this deck is going to be a total showstopper. It’s going to have a ton and stability and precision with that camber-dominant profile. The subtle banana rocker between the feet allows for some playful forgiveness, even when hitting high speeds. Lib’s medium-flex power construction makes this board incredibly lightweight and responsive. Plus, the Magne-Traction edges are going to take your mom’s shredding capabilities to the next level with ultimate edge-hold tech. Directional, dynamic, and insane—this one will undoubtedly be a hit!
There are endless options when it comes to dialing in your mom’s snowboard set up this year. These are just a few ideas, but there are plenty of great deals to score in all categories! If you still aren’t quite sure what to choose to make this a Mother’s Day she’ll never forget, reach out to a Snowboard Expert for some insight, or get her a Curated gift card!
