Happy Mother

Mark your calendar to celebrate mom this Mother’s Day on Sunday, May 9! The spring season is always a great time to reflect and think about all those who are important to you, especially the women who are always by your side. Whether you’re celebrating with your mom in person or virtually this year, you may be wondering how to make Mother’s Day 2021 extra special. Check out our list of top Mother’s Day gift ideas mixed with creative ways to show your love and appreciation for those most special to you! 

1) Sweat It Out

Does your mom enjoy walking, running, or participating in fitness classes? If so, get your mom a new workout outfit this year. Find her a comfortable workout top and workout bottoms that match her personality and boost her confidence. Pair the new workout clothing with a bold Hydro Flask water bottle to keep her hydrated before, during, and after her workout sessions. Then, schedule an hour to workout together either in person or virtually. She’ll love the new workout clothing and accessories, exercising, and spending time with you!

2) Plan a Dream Trip or Stay-cation

When traveling, you always want a comfortable and packable pair of shoes. Your mom will love wearing a pair of Hey Dude shoes whether she’s traveling to a new place or just around town. Another fun way to spend Mother’s Day together could be researching and discussing your dream vacations, or you can even plan a stay-cation in your town!
