When a new baby joins a family, some parents say “okay, time to grow up” and some “The adventure is just beginning!” Whether it’s camping or glamping, or anything in between, We have the gifts for that wanderlust, wild-spirit, adrenaline-junkie, adventure-loving mom. (And dad.)
For the Camper: Baby Tent and Camping Mug
Believe it or not, camping with a baby is a lot of fun. This little tent has a blow-up mattress insert that will let baby take naps outside while protected from the sun and bugs.
We also used ours as a makeshift bed during our Europe trip, because it packs away into a super tiny bag.
Pro tip – let your baby test it out at home first. They might not be so keen on being put in there while in a totally new environment.
And, while the baby is napping, let mom take a moment for herself with a comforting hot coffee and a super cute mug.
Take it with you for hikes, camping, or backyard get-togethers.
For the Hiker: – Ankle Weights and Diaper Bag
In case you were wondering, hikes and strollers do not go together. And neither do those oversized purses they call “diaper bags”. Babies love being worn on hikes, it keeps them calm and entertained. So mama needs some real hiking gear.
A comfy backpack, like this one by Columbia, for all the baby essentials and a comfy baby carrier – both gender neutral.
The Breezy Wrap is the perfect hiking companion, it’s super lightweight yet super sturdy so it will keep mom (or dad) sweat-free and baby in place. Bonus points – it’s quick-dry and it packs away super tiny.
For the ultra-committed fitness junkie, add in some ankle weights.
For After the Adventure: Epsom salts, handmade jewelry
If the adventure mom in your life has all the gear she needs, give her something to help unwind and to wanderlust for more.
These handmade pieces from Etsy will have her pining for the next adventure, and will let her know you love her wild spirit.
Epsom salts in a hot bath are perfect for relaxing sore muscles. You really can never have too much on hand.
