So, we’ve chosen a few stand-out items here – all ones we use or would purchase ourselves – to help with decision-making. So, for all the moms and women who enjoy the outdoors, check out these ten gift ideas for Mother’s Day 2022 on Sunday, May 8th.
Sawyer MINI Water Filtration System
Bring this lightweight, versatile filtration system on your next outdoor adventure with mom. The MINI Water Filtration System is perfect for hiking, camping, travel, and as an emergency preparedness tool.
The MINI is truly that size as it fits in the palm of your hand (at a weight of only 2 oz) and helps filter out bacteria, protozoa, and microplastics from the water while you’re on the go. In fact, the technology found in the microfibrous tubes that are part of the filter is similar to that used in medical dialysis.
Drink the clean water provided through the MINI by attaching it to the included drinking pouch and use the straw provided. Or, you can connect it to your favorite hydration pack or screw it onto standard disposable water bottles.
