15 Healthy Gift Ideas for Mom
May 11, 2018
There’s never a bad time to let Mom know she’s loved and appreciated. And a great way to do so is by supporting her health and wellness!
Whether you need a Mother’s Day gift, birthday gift, or just want to show her you care, here are some healthy gift ideas just about any mom will love.
1. Bluetooth Headphones
Whether she goes to the gym, enjoys a walk around the neighborhood, or likes to listen to music or podcasts on-the-go, wireless Bluetooth headphones make it all easier. They’re stylish and usually easy to set up with any smartphone.
2. Tea and Teapot
Drinking tea, especially green tea, is a great compliment to a healthy lifestyle. Substances in teas are even linked to lower risks of disease.
If your mom enjoys a nice warm cup of tea, get her a pretty teapot to add to her home and some high-quality tea leaves to brew.
3. Yoga Clothes and Yoga Mat
According to the American Osteopathic Association, yoga has many benefits for people of all ages, including:
- Better flexibility and reduced risk of injuries
- Increased strength and muscle tone
- Weight loss
- Healthy metabolism
- Stress management and a more positive outlook
Gift mom a nice yoga mat and clothes to use for her downward dog or for just relaxing at home.
4. Yoga or Gym Classes
If Mom’s expressed interest in accountability for her fitness goals, pre-paid gym or yoga classes (or even personal training sessions) can be a great help.
5. Stainless Steel Water Bottle or Rambler
Water bottles like Swell or ramblers or tumblers from Yeti are eco-friendly and functional. Many will keep liquids warm for 12 hours and cold for up to 24 hours! Perfect for the on-the-go mom.
6. Essential Oil Diffuser
Essential oils are used for everything from detox and stress relief to making the home smell amazing. An essential oil diffuser will give mom endless aromatherapy possibilities!
7. Bath Salts or Essential Oils
We can all use a little more calm in our lives, especially moms.
Look for all-natural bath salts or essential oils like lavender, lemongrass, and peppermint mom can use to relax.
8. Stylish and Functional Gym or Travel Bag
For the mom who hits the gym or yoga studio (or wants to start doing so), a high-quality bag is a great gift. For an extra personal touch, choose her favorite color or pattern and get the bag engraved with her name or initials.
BONUS IDEA: Fill it with other items from this list and she’s ready to go!
9. Healthy Cookbook or Magazine
Gift Mom a cookbook with healthy recipes for her favorite cuisine, a subscription to a healthy cooking magazine, or even local healthy cooking classes.
10. Healthy, Homemade Brunch
Many moms spend countless hours cooking for others over the years. Flip roles by cooking her something healthy and delicious.
Choose a recipe she wouldn’t normally make and set the table with an elegant tablecloth, flowers, and maybe even some candles. She’ll love the gesture and be happy for the extra time together!
11. Nespresso Machine
When used in moderation, black coffee may have some health benefits.
If Mom’s a regular coffee drinker, give her something that will let her drink it in style right at home like a Nespresso or other coffee machine.
12. Fitness Watch
Fitness watches are popular with people of all ages. Mom can count her daily steps, monitor specific health goals, and track everything from weight loss to sleep and exercise.
13. Flowers and a Hard-written Card
This one’s a classic, but it never goes out of style. Certain indoor plants and flowers can actually benefit health, and they’re always pretty to look at!
Combine a beautiful bouquet with a personalized letter letting Mom know how much she means to you.
14. Frozen Fruit Soft Serve Machine
Give Mom a healthy sweet treat with “nice cream” made from all-natural fruit!
15. Massage Gift Card
Daily life can put a lot of stress on our body, especially the neck, shoulders, and back. Gifting a massage can relieve any stress or tension, leaving your mom feeling refreshed and renewed.
