With mother’s day right around the corner (next Sunday, May 8th), many people are looking to find the perfect gift for their mom. This woman gave birth to you, so she deserves something amazing, right?!
This year, give her something that will help her be healthy and feel great. I’ve put together 20 of the best healthy gifts that you could give your mother this year:
Here’s the deal – most of the links you’ll find below will take you to Amazon where you’ll be able to buy these amazing products. They are affiliate links and I will get a small percent if you do buy them… SO BUY AWAY!! 🙂 But seriously, though, thanks in advance for clicking over from my site. This is in no way an endorsement of any of these products and none of them paid me to sponsor them on this post… I just thought they were cool products! I know my mom and wife would love them!
Now let’s do this…
Whether your mom is training for a marathon or wanting to get more steps in everyday, this is such a fun device for her to have. I gave my wife a FitBit Charge last year and she LOVES it!.Plus, with all the additional fun bands that you can get on Amazon, she can accessorize it anyway she wants! (Like this floral band for only $6.99!)
These infuser water bottles are all the rage right now – who doesn’t want to drink delicious water that has been flavored naturally? The thing that I love about this one is that it’s under $20 and comes with a recipe book to get you started!
3. Massage gift certificate
When I gave this one to my wife one year, I was pretty much husband-of-the-year. Every mom deserves a little break! Find a local massage place and purchase a gift certificate – you can usually get a great deal during mother’s day.
4. Herb Garden Kit
Fresh herbs can make all the difference in your cooking, so get mom a herb garden. These are so simple to care for and they can be kept indoors or outdoors.
5. Homemade Meal
Chances are, your mother has cooked for you your entire life . . . why don’t you return the favor? Put together an amazing dinner and give her the night off!
