10 May Healthy, Happy Mother’s Day Gift Ideas
Mother’s Day is almost here! Skip the cliche flowers and chocolates (unless that’s what Mom truly wants, of course), and give your mom the gift of health this Mother’s Day! We have some ideas to get your creative juices flowing.
- Healthy Cookbook
Think about the type of food mom cooks (or wish she cooked) that will help her on her wellness journey. It could be on-the-go snacks, crockpot/one-pot meals, or healthy desserts. Then checkout popular lists either online or in retail stores to choose a cookbook that’s right for her.
- Beauty Box Subscription
Birchbox is an example, but there are others out there. Each month, subscribers get personalized beauty samples from different categories (i.e. skin care, makeup, fragrance, and hair care) delivered to their home. This is the perfect way for mom to try out new beauty products, without committing to the full size or price.
- Beach Cruiser Bicycle
Whether she’s pedaling around the neighborhood or on the boardwalk, this bike is perfect for beginners and experienced cyclists, alike, regardless of where they like to ride. Plus, she’ll look good doing it, too!
- Mineral Bath Salts and Soaps
We all know how important rest and relaxation is to a balanced wellness regimen. It’s no different for Mom. Whether she likes to detox with epsom salts infused with eucalyptus or wash away worries with lavender, there are different scent and mineral variations to indulge her senses, help soften skin, and ease tension after a hectic day.
- Gourmet Tea
Tea is very healing and a great addition to your repertoire of healthy drinks. Retail stores like Teavana sell custom mixed, loose leaf tea, but you can also find incredible tea offerings online like this: “Around the Globe” set which contains 10 tubes of single-estate, loose-leaf teas, allowing mom to sample gourmet teas from countries all around the world. It’s like a mini-vacation for your taste buds!
- Flavor Fusion Water Bottle
Tired of plain water? This pitcher transforms it into “spa-inspired, fruit-infused H2O”. It works with fruits, veggies, and herbs/teas to make hydration fun and enticing.
- Essential Oil Diffusers
Skip the toxic candles, and opt for a healthier, equally-as-good-smelling alternative: an essential oil diffuser. (You learned about some of the benefits of essential oils in our previous post, here). Mom can add her favorite scents, like a spa mix of lavender, lemon, and eucalyptus, and the device diffuses natural fragrance into the air. You can even get some diffusers with mood lighting for an enhanced effect of relaxation.
- Stunning Shades
Trendy sunglasses are all the rage right now (with 100% UV protection, of course!). Whether mom spends time gardening, by the pool, or on her new beach cruiser, she’ll look her best doing it while protecting her vision!
- Wearable Technology
Some moms might have some (loveable) nerd in them 🙂 Why not help them stay on track to their fitness goals with wearable tech? Now, mom can track steps, heart rate, length and quality of sleep, calories burned, and much more! She’ll have no excuse other than success!
- Gym Bag Full of FITTEAM Swag
Don’t forget FITTEAM’s got everything from pre-workout energy and post-workout fuel, to workout clothes to get mom up and running towards her fitness goals!
