Finding the perfect gift for mom can be a struggle. How do you celebrate the woman who raised you, introduced you to the outdoors, helped you buckle your ski boots, and schlepped you and all your gear to the slopes (or the woman who does all of this for your kiddos)? By returning the favor. This Mother's Day, give her something to encourage her pursuits. 

For the Moms Who Never Stop Skiing

Mother's Day Gift Guide 2020: Gifts for the Skier

Bonus: The magnetic sidekicks are perforated for venting, so steam won't build up and cloud mom's view while she's sweating under a hot sun. [$89, sunski.com]

Mother's Day 2020: Giro Xena Glove, POC Axion Spin MTB Helmet, Pearl Izumi Women's X-ALP Canyon, and Flylow Eleanor MTB Short

Help her get kitted out for this summer's mountain-bike adventures.

1. Giro Xena Mountain Bike Glove

The best mountain bike gloves feel barely there while also proving super-durable, no matter what her off-road adventure throws her way. The Xena checks both of those boxes thanks to moisture-wicking mesh panels over the thumb and brake finger to dissipate heat, and a bulletproof synthetic leather palm with 3mm Technoget padding and three-piece construction to reduce bunching. Did we mention there's a touchscreen fingertip so she can access her phone with ease? That's nice. [$35, giro.com]

The innovative news here is the patent-pending SPIN silicone pad technology and a breakaway visor designed to shear off in a crash, minimizing the chance of neck injury. It's also very lightweight, adjustable, and has plenty of ventilation, [$150, pocsports.com]

These shoes are SPD-compatible and boast a mesh toe box for ample ventilation [$110, pearlizumi.com]
