Micro Scream Whistle by Frog & CO
Once the pandemic is over, people will be allowed back on the streets. That goes for the criminals, as well. Get the moms in your life a Micro Scream Whistle so they have something to alert other people in case they encounter such criminals. Emergency whistles are also useful when people get lost in the wilderness, trapped under a rubble after an earthquake, or to get everyone’s attention when it’s time for dinner.
The Micro Scream Whistle is packed with 100 decibels of piercing sound, which can be heard from a mile away. The tiny pealess whistle comes in bright orange, which is easy to spot from afar. It’s also incredibly lightweight at only 0.2 ounces.
ReadyWise Emergency Food Supply 120 Serving Freeze Dried Vegetable Bucket
Show of hands! Who here have heard, “Eat your veggies!” so many times when you were a kid? Let’s all be honest. Most of us didn’t like vegetables but had to eat them for our own good. And we’re not just talking about health here.
Even in emergencies, we shouldn’t forget about our veggies. Ideally, everyone should have a vegetable and herb garden at home. However, not everyone has that luxury of having fresh produce grown by their own hands. The problem with store-brought produce is that they’re not always fresh and some may have been exposed to chemicals. Also, the stores may not operate during disasters.
Your mom needs her own supple of vegetables to keep her going. Get her something like the Freeze Dried Vegetable Bucket from Readywise. The veggies are obviously not fresh but you can still enjoy their taste and nutrition. This particular emergency food supply contains corn, peas, broccoli, and green beans packed in durable polyester film pouches. The dried vegetable’s shelf life can last for at least 25 years with the right storing conditions.
QuickHeat Rechargeable Hand Warmer with Portable Power Bank by Frog & CO
Do you like warm hugs? You probably got lots of them from your dear momma when you were just a little kid. She’s probably wishing she’s right there beside you to keep you warm and tell you nice stories so you won’t be afraid of the big bad coronavirus.
Since you can’t risk going out to visit your mom, the best you can do is get her a Mother’s Day gift that will help keep her warm while also keeping you connected. The QuickHeat Rechargeable Hand Warmer with Portable Power Bank provides 104 to 140 degrees Fahrenheit of heat for about 2 to 4 hours. That should be enough warmth for your mom to feel your love. In case she suffers from Reynaud’s disease, some patients have reported that the device provided relief from their numb and painful hands.
And if that’s still not enough, she can give you a call with her fully charged phone thanks to the hand warmer that doubles as a portable power bank. This survival tool is indeed one of the best Mother’s Day gift ideas you’ll ever think of.
Luci Original Inflatable Solar Lantern
Remember how as a kid you were so afraid of the dark? Remember running over to your mom telling her of the monster under the bed? Now that you’re older and presumably no longer scared when you turn the light off, it’s time to return the favor.
Give your mom a Mother’s Day present she can use during power outages or whenever she needs to see in the dark. The Luci Original Inflatable Solar Lantern is also a must-have for camping trips and bug out bags.
The Luci Inflatable Solar Lantern has 4 light modes — low, medium, high, and flashing. It comes with ten cool white LED bulbs that give off up to 75 lumens of bright light. The IP67 waterproof (up to 1 meter) and shatterproof portable lantern weighs only 4.4 ounces or 125 grams, which is lighter than most phones.
A single charge can last up to 24 hours while a full charge is attained from seven hours under direct sunlight. It comes with a quick shut off feature and a battery level indicator. The dust resistant solar lantern is protected from overcharging and over discharging as well as from over-currents and short circuits.
Perhaps the best thing about is that you get to help others in need. When you purchase a Luci Inflatable Solar Lantern from MPOWERD, you help provide light to those who have no access to clean energy.
Crash Escape 6-in-1 Emergency Car Tool by Frog & CO
When you were younger, your parents made sure you were safely tucked in the car seat before driving away. As you got older, they put the seatbelt around you. When it was your turn to learn to drive, they told you wearing the seatbelt should be the first thing you do once inside the car. All these precautions just to make sure you’re safe while on the road.
Now it’s your turn to make sure your mom and dad are as safe as possible when they’re driving. If you’re thinking of Mother’s Day gift ideas to prepare for emergencies, a car escape tool definitely fits the bill.
The Crash Escape 6-in-1 Emergency Car Tool by Frog & CO is a small survival tool that should be in everyone’s car emergency kit. It’s a seatbelt cutter and window breaker in one. But that’s not all. The emergency car tool also comes with a flashlight with 130 to 140 lumens and three different light settings, including a flashing mode for emergencies.
The tool is also capable of charging small devices via the car charger or as a power bank. The 2200 mAh battery takes about 3 to 4 hours to fully charge.

Pocket Jumper Pro Car & Truck Jump Starter by Frog & CO
Not all emergencies on the road involve car crashes or sinking vehicles. Oftentimes, it’s just a stalled vehicle, flat tire, or a stuck car. Most people will need to flag down a passing vehicle to get help. Not your mother. Your badass mom can change tires and dig her way out of thick snow.
If the emergency involves the car battery, she can use the portable jump starter that you will give her for Mother’s Day. The Pocket Jumper Pro Car & Truck Jump Starter set includes a 15 volt gas and diesel jumper that doubles as a power bank, jumper cables, a multi-power cord attachment, a car adapter cord, and a zip-up pouch.
The Pocket Jumper can charge small devices like your phone so you can stay connected especially in an emergency. It also has a built-in 120-lumen flashlight with a white SOS signal and red flashing light modes. The 12,500 mAh lithium polymer battery can be recharged up to 1,000 times, which should be more than what you’ll need.
Goal Zero Yeti 400 110 Volt Power Station
Now here’s a Mother’s Day gift idea that will be pretty useful if your mom lives alone or with your dad. It’s also a good thing to have when they like going outdoors or taking road trips, which are something many people are looking forward to after the pandemic.
Use the portable power station as a backup power supply in case power goes out or when outdoors. It can power phones and other small devices along bigger ones such as a refrigerator. It only takes 5 hours to charge it via wall charger and 13 hours using the car charger. The Yeti 400 features USB port, a 6mm port, a 12V car port, an AC inverter, Power Pole Chaining Port, and a charging port. It also pairs with a solar panel to give you the best portable energy source possible.
Your prepper mom will love the Goal Zero Yeti 400 Power Station since it doesn’t use fuel, which produces a not-so-pleasing smell. Unlike generators, the power station also doesn’t create loud noises. This part is important when you’re trying to avoid being the target of desperate people. Remember, in an apocalyptic scenario where people will do anything to survive, the sound of a generator will lead people to think that you have food and other supplies thus making you a prime target.
