If there’s a special Mom in your life who loves to stay active and fit, I’ve got some fail-proof gift ideas to show her how much you appreciate her this Mother’s Day. Here are my top 5 Mother’s Day gift ideas for the active mom.
- Sports Massage
I could not recommend this more! If the mom in your life is slinging iron and diaper bags, she needs this. Sports massage is not all essential oils and light pressure like the more traditional Swedish massage. It’s intense and meant to work out those myofascial adhesions (knots) that can build up over time. Any active mama will be happy to have the relief and increased range of motion she’ll gain from a good sports massage.
If you’re in the South Denver, Colorado area, you HAVE to send her to Rhonda at FORMOTION Manual Therapies.
- Gym Clothes
Every fitness-minded mom wants gym clothes. You can’t lose here. Just don’t go cheap because quality matters! Go check her closet so you get the right size. Tanks, leggings, sport bras, and shorts. We want all of it. Trust me.
My FAVORITE brand of gym clothes right now is Hylete. I want everything in their Spring 2018 Catalog and I’m betting your fit mom will too.
- Fitness Watch
If the mama on your mind doesn’t have a fitness watch, she probably wants one, and if she does, she probably wouldn’t mind an upgrade. There are tons of them on the market and I know it can be a challenge to choose the right one, so here are a couple of things to look for:
- Heart Rate Monitor
- Water Resistance
- Reliable GPS
I like my trusty Polar M200. It’s stylish with a round face and has all the above-mentioned features along with many more. If you want something more cutting edge, I recommend a Garmin watch (I like this one) or the brand new FitBit Versa.
- Mini Bands
There’s not a piece of equipment more versatile than bands, in my opinion, and sometimes the gym just doesn’t have a good set! Your fit mama will be so happy to have her own. I recommend these bands.
If the mother you love is a runner, a lifter, a crossfitter, a dancer, or any other kind of athlete, her feet need some attention. Get the woman a pedicure! Check her schedule and make her an appointment for a pedicure at a nice place with the fancy spa water. She will thank you!
Mother’s do so much for all of us and they deserve some special treatment, don’t they?! Any of these items will be a home-run for the active mom in your life this Mother’s Day. Get to shopping and don’t forget to tell her just how wonderful she is!
