Yep, its Friday afternoon and once again we are posting our Mother’s Day guide. Mom never forgets, but when things are left up to Dad and the kids, that is when things can go downhill fast. So screw the store-bought flowers and raise the bar this year! Check out these quick and easy ideas. Oh, did we mention all these gifts can be acquired by Sunday?
Technivorm Moccamaster KBGV Coffee Maker
The Technivorm Moccamaster KBGV Coffee Maker is one of the best coffee makers we have found, Known for its precise temperature control, pour-over style and durable construction. It is manufactured by Technivorm, a Dutch company that has been producing coffee makers since 1964. We have been using this coffee maker for several years and absolutely love it. Pricey, but worth it. $359 and Amazon can have it here by Sunday. Buy on Amazon.
If the morning starts off with coffee, why not end it with an evening on the patio with a cocktail? We are going to suggest a pour from our friends at Wyoming Whiskey. Granted there are a ton of bourbons and whiskies out there, Wyoming whiskies are made from ingredients sourced from the state and are family owned. Oh and while you’re at it, maybe toss in a trip to the distillery. Located in the Bighorn Basin in Kirby, Wyoming, the distillery is only an hour from some of the most magical places in the United States.
Vuori Workout Apparel and Clothing
If mom likes to get sweaty and hit the gym or the trail, then new workout gear is probably right up her alley and Vuori will have her doing it in style. Leggings, joggers, shorts and tops, Vuori offers must-have attire as she stays fit and active. While it might be tough to get her new joggers in time for Mother’s Day, you always have that gift card option. And with a gift card, you can’t screw up the size or the color. Not a GC fan? REI does stock their apparel and there are a couple of stores scattered throughout the state. Shop Vuori.
New HOKA Running, Walking and Hiking Shoes
Spend the day with mom and her new kicks. What was once considered chunky and odd now has a following according to the New York Times. Yes, we are baffled but at the end of the day, HOKA’s are comfortable and you’ll find yourself loving them. Running, walking or hiking, they have you covered.

There are so many great reasons to love the OmniFizz from Drinkmate. Fresh carbonated water in 60 seconds and mom can flavor it with whatever she wants. No more cans, bottles or waste.
