Last Minute Gift Ideas for Mom

Mother’s Day is just around the corner – do you still need a gift for the most important lady in your life? If so, we’ve got some great ideas for you!

Gift Ideas for the On The Go Mom

Your busy mom will love our versatile Ida Outfitter vest, which pairs perfectly with these three caps – the Petal Pusher Cap in White/Raspberry, the Flat Top Cap in Aurora or the Petal Pusher Cap in Raspberry/Chocolate. And we won’t tell mom, but that last cap is on sale!

Gifts Ideas for the Outdoorsy Mom

Moms are the hardest working people we know. And they deserve apparel and accessories that work as hard as they do – AND – lend a bit of style while they do it. Our cozy Parkland Vest and Ida Mittens, both lined in thick sherpa, are the perfect companion for any outdoor activity from feeding the horses to walking the dog. Add in our generous Carryall Bag and Mom will have everything she needs right by her side when she needs it.

Gift Ideas for Mom in Waxed Cotton

There’s a reason waxed cotton has been used for apparel since the late 1800s – it’s tough, water-resistant, and great looking. Used in our Wear Weather Jacket for Her, it will keep Mom looking good and feeling great walking down main street from Seattle to Boston. Paired here with our popular Kromer Tote, and another great sale item, the Ida Kromer in Blue Spruce.

Worried your gift won’t arrive in time? Orders placed by 1 pm central time typically ship the same day. If you live in Michigan, Wisconsin or Minnesota, ship time is just a few days. If you live farther away – you can always try our upgraded shipping of 3-day, 2-day or overnight delivery. Really stuck? Our email gift certificates arrive immediately and are always a perfect fit.

Meet Living Legend Finalist Helen Baird

Nominated by: Michael Christopher, grandson 
My grandmother, Helen Baird, just turned 97 years young in August of this year. To make a long, complicated story short, she was my mother’s aunt, until circumstance and courage changed things. My mom was born into a family that had too many children and too little money. Instead of allowing the kids to be adopted out to strangers and possibly split up, some of the aunts decided to legally adopt the children themselves. In a nutshell, that’s how my mom’s aunt became her mother and my grandmother.

My grandmother is an AMAZING woman with an unlimited number of stories to tell. She still has all of her faculties, walks without aid, mows her own lawn and only recently quit driving and gave up her driver’s license. She is a cancer survivor after having part of a lung removed decades ago. She is a former realtor, former bar owner and wife to a man that fought in WWII. She has witnessed and lived first hand many historical events that the rest of us have only read about. Helen Baird is OUR Living Legend and I believe you’d be doing yourself a great service by making this amazing, remarkable woman…yours.
