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 bring relief to those muscles she has worked so hard for. 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.
- 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’ve been sporting my trusty Polar M200 for years now. It’s stylish with a round face and has all the above-mentioned features along with many more.
- Exercise Equipment
First take an interest in what types of exercise the mama in your life is into, then shop accordingly. If she’s into yoga or mobility, a cushy new yoga mat would be ideal. If she lifts weights, a set of adjustable dumbbells or resistance bands would hit the mark. And if you really want to impress your lifting lady, splurge on a squat rack, barbell, and bumper plates for the home gym.
If the mother you love is a runner, a lifter, a cross-fitter, 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!
