With Mother’s Day right around the corner, we thought it would be helpful to ask our friends at Puglia’s Sporting Goods in Metairie for great gift ideas for the outdoors-loving mothers in our lives.
There is nothing worse than last-minute shopping; it’s stressful, and your choices are limited. This Mother’s Day, don’t be that dope, panic-buying on Saturday night or worse, Sunday morning. Whether you are shopping for your mother, your wife or your girlfriend — or any combination of the three — no mother deserves to feel like an afterthought on her special day.
Here’s the list the people at Puglia’s came up with:
Grundéns Women’s Deck Boss ankle boots
The Deck Boss collection was designed to provide anglers with comfortable, performance-driven footwear options that will outlast even the longest days on the water. A thicker insole promotes noticeable shock resistance, and the anti-microbial cooling liner will ensure you leave the typical footwear stench behind. Built-in razor siping helps move water from under the shoe, improving grip on wet surfaces, and combined with a natural gum-rubber outsole, you’ll be standing upright on deck all day long.
Huk Women’s Current Camo Icon X shirt
The Huk Camo Icon X long-sleeve shirt for ladies is built to perform on the water with UPF 30 sun protection and breathable, vented panels along the back, sides, and arms. Internal Cooling Element (ICE) technology causes an endothermic reaction on contact with sweat or moisture, lowering your body temperature so you stay cool. This shirt features Huk graphics on the chest, back, and left arm for a professional look. The shirt is made of a durable but lightweight, 100% polyester stretch knit that moves with you. It’s available with or without a hoodie.
MRSP: $49.99 and up
