Whether she’s planning a shark dive, loves whitewater river rafting or is just trying to take three young kids to the beach, any mom will appreciate a waterproof camera to capture all those special moments. The Intova Sport HD Digital Camera (Swim Outlet, $200) is waterproof to 200 feet and even takes full 1080p high-def video.

Luggage tags

Luggage tags

If mom’s adventures have her traveling around the world (or just across the country), give her something she can really use — personalized luggage tags. These colorful, personalized tags (The Monogrammed Merchant, $17 and up) will make her suitcases stand out from the rest on the carousel at the baggage claim.

Women's backpack

Camping equipment

If your adventurous friend loves the outdoors, consider buying her some camping equipment. From pop-up tents to sturdy backpacks and hiking pants to water bottles, you can find so much outdoor gear to choose from. The Gregory Jade 28 Pack (REI, $139) delivers comfort and performance.



Get her ready for winter with a new snowboard or some ski equipment. The adventurous lady enjoys her time outdoors — no matter the season or conditions. We love the collection of colorful snowboards available from EVO.

Travel journal

Travel journal

Give your friend a way to chronicle all her adventures with a new journal. Instead of a tablet computer, pick a good old fashioned bound paper journal that she can use to log all her thoughts no matter where her travels take her. Every Women’s Travel Journal (Amazon, $10) makes a great stocking stuffer or Secret Santa gift.

Hot air balloon

Experiential gift

Instead of buying her a tangible gift, give the adventurous lady the gift of an experience. A number of websites including, and offer unique experience gifts that include everything from skydiving to race car driving to hot air balloon rides all around the country.
