Cool (or Hot) Sips
Does Mom like to unwind with a martini or a glass of her favorite red? ORCA has a line of drinkware that keeps her drinks icy cold on hot days. Try a 12 ounce Vino or a 8 ounce Chasertini. The Chasertini features the signature ORCA Whale Tail flip top lid for ease of portability. Lock it down and that drink is going nowhere. The Chasertini can pull double duty as an ice cream, or anything that needs to stay cold dish, too. The cup features double-walled, vacuum sealed, stainless steel durability with a clear, BPA-free lid, and interior copper for superior temperature retention. The Chasertini comes in lots of fun hues, including seafoam, dusty rose, pink, pearl, and sage. More of a coffee aficionado? ORCA has a line for that too. Try a 24 ounce Traveler mug in one of the many vibrant shades they offer, including red, navy blue, forest green, seafoam, blaze orange, charcoal, or black. ORCA products are designed in Nashville, Tennessee.
Book a Trip
Has she been talking about visiting a certain place for years? Does she have a bucket list hunt she wants to check off? Make a big impression this year and book it! Bonus points if it is a trip for just her – not the family. Family trips are fun and all, but for mothers they are an exercise in coordination and endurance. Not exactly time off. So, book her something for just her. Maybe the mama you know does not have a trip in mind – that is fine! Check out some organizations such as WildHERness, Wild Woman Expeditions, and Ladies Hunting Camp.
Relax on a Tarpestry
Mom needs a giant durable tarp/blanket to lay in the sun and off of the dirt. Enter Tarpestry. The Tarpestry is a soft yet strong and weather-resistant picnic blanket that provides protections from the elements by creating a barrier. The base fabric of each Tarpestry is a urethane-coated and heavy duty polyester. The upper fabric varies by style, ranging from 100% cotton to water-repellent polyester. The Tarpestry can be used as either a blanket or a tarp. There are four grommet rings included, one on each corner. Mom can hang it up for privacy or sun/rain/wind protection or stake the Tarpestry down in the grass or sand when windy. Tarpestry is perfect for picnics, camping, beach trips, outdoor concerts, sports and more. She can stash it in her trunk and always be ready for impromptu adventures. They come in a wide variety of fun and artistic designs featured in a variety of collections, including the epic collection, the rugged collection, and the classic collection. Tarpestry even has a line of dog bed duvet covers.
Mother’s day is Sunday, May 8th. Be sure to order gifts in plenty of time to ensure delivery.
