When you think of Mothers Day, you probably think of flowers, perfume, or an air fryer. We want to “stretch” your gift thinking by suggesting some lighting options. After all, moms have many opportunities to need a powerful, reliable flashlight or lighting product.
Today’s flashlights are smaller and more powerful. The Fenix UC30 LED Flashlight surely fits that description. We selected this flashlight for Mothers Day because of its size, ease of operation, and brightness. The total length is 5.1 inches–perfect for a purse or home storage. Think of mom leaving a store a night or walking after sunset; the Fenix UC30 is easily carried to inspect the auto or to use to deter a suspicious threat. The flashlight has an amazing 1000-Lumen output (which is perfect to temporarily “blind” a threatening person) five output brightness modes, and a strobe for emergencies situations. All of these features are easily accessed through the simple interface of a side button. The crown feature is the fact the UC30 is rechargeable. Of all the flashlights on the market, we think this checks all the boxes when it comes to features for that special mom in your life.
OK. We are pretty sure a headlamp is the last thing you would think as a Mothers Day gift. However, think about all the times she could use hands-free lighting…cleaning the dog’s ears, looking for the lost item under the bed, walking at night, changing the oil in the car, etc. We pretty much can guarantee you that when she opens the Fenix HL26R LED Headlamp, she will be taken back. But as the days and months go by, she will appreciate the headlamp more every day. The rechargeable HL26R is lightweight but has a maximum output of 450 Lumens. She won’t always need it; but when needed, the beam will shoot an amazing 328 feet! Then you have an option of three pretty classy colors which she will appreciate.
Do you have a mom who cycles? The award-winning, rechargeable Fenix BC21R V2.0 LED Bike Light is our top recommendation for her. It is lightweight, compact, and recharges with the new fast-charging Type-C USB technology. The light has an IP66 rating against dust particles and more importantly heavy rain or splashing. What sets the Fenix BC21R V2.0 apart from the rest is the dual distance beam system which allows you to ride safely on the road while also protecting oncoming cyclists’ visibility. Mom will have a bike light that can illuminate up to 475 feet in front of her at the 1000-Lumen setting. The maximum charge time will allow mom to safely ride many hours.
Back to the idea of hands-free operation–think of all the times you would like to perfectly place the beam but you couldn’t hold the light at the same time as needing your hands to achieve a task. The Fenix CL26R LED Lantern is the answer! The CL26R is equipped with a hanging clamp as well as a magnetic base. These options allow perfect placement. The included red flashing feature of the lantern is perfect for auto travel emergencies, camping emergencies, or hiking emergencies. I know you are probably thinking of the old kerosene lanterns–big and bulking and surely not portable. Not the case with the CL26R. Check out these specs: 400 Lumens, 4.1 ounces, and 1.93″ x 3.8″. This is another gift your mom will thank you for years to come.
So this is the year to “think outside of the box” for Mothers Day. We agree she may wonder about the gift at first; however, we can assure you that with every day that passes and with every use of her new light, she will appreciate the gift more and more. And the icing on the cake is that she will think of you every time she uses or sees her gift. What can be better than that?
