Mother's Day gift ideas aren’t difficult to come by – what is difficult, is finding the perfect gift. You know, the one that’s super chic, super thoughtful, and suits your mom like no other gift on the planet (I call it the “unicorn gift.”). Plus, you want to earn extra brownie points with gifts that improve the healthy lifestyle she already enjoys.
Lucky for you, there’s no need to hyperventilate into a paper bag: We’ve curated a list of ideas that will make her feel like Samantha Jones rocking a Miley Cyrus dress.
Below, a round-up of Mother's Day gift ideas that are the perfect blend of healthful and thoughtful:
1. An easy breezy yoga mat
If your on-the-go mom practices yoga at home just as much as she does on the road, she’ll love the Manduka ProLite Yoga Mat. It’s lightweight yet cushioned, with a nonslip surface for pose after pose.
2. Stylish post-workout clothing
Zella’s All Shirred Up Pullover is a soft, sweater-knit hoodie that doesn’t miss a beat: It has thumbholes in the cuffs to keep her hands warm and prevent sleeve-creep, seaming that won't irritate her skin, and moisture-wicking to keep her cool and comfy.
3. An uber-relaxing body mist
Moms have this way of wearing stress well - so much so, I was tempted to buy mine a cape this year. If one of your Mother's Day gift ideas is to help her decompress after a highly active day, Aveda’s Chakra 7 Balancing Body Mist will do the trick. It’s a blend of pure essential oils to balance the crown chakra, according to Ayurveda, the ancient healing art of India. When her crown chakra is balanced, she'll feel strong, clear-headed and joyful.
4. Gorgeous + versatile makeup
The best part about Jane Iredale’s Forever Pink Just Kissed Lip & Cheek Stain is its versatility: It’s a long lasting, multipurpose stain that will adjust to her chemistry and enhance her natural glow. Meanwhile, the olive butter, avocado butter and wild rose wax soothes and softens lips.
5. Soothing body scrub
6. The Rolls Royce of blenders
There’s blenders, then there’s the Blendtec Blender. Their Designer Series takes blending to a whole new level: Complete speed control, signature blend cycles for things like smoothies, ice cream, soups, and more. Also, it's pretty.
What’s a blender without something to blend? Green Foods Green Magma Barley Grass is the original green drink: It boosts energy levels, improves digestion, supports the immune system, and so much more – perfect for Mom's morning smoothie.
7. A luxe water bottle
The bkr Reusable Water Bottle is known as the minimalist, bottle equivalent of the perfect t-shirt. It's the ultimate workout accessory: Made of clean glass and covered with a soft silicone for an added layer of protection, it doesn't retain taste or odor so drinks always taste as they should.
They’re 100 percent recyclable and dishwasher safe. bkr also invests a portion of all proceeds to combat the global water crisis and the fight against cancer.
8. A soap for everything
When it comes to Mother's Day gift ideas, nothing beats beauty supplies that nourish her body inside and out. Kahina Giving Beauty Argan Soap Trio in rosemary lavender is one of those everything soaps: It nourishes face, body, hands and hair using argan oil with olive, coconut and shea oils, while the rosemary polishes skin and stimulates circulation.
9. A super easy face mask
One thing moms never have enough of: Time. That’s why if you’re going to buy her a face mask, you have to make sure it multitasks while she’s multitasking. The Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask is natural, easy to use, and covers all bases: It eliminates dull skin cells, deeply cleanses, moisturizes, and stimulates circulation while absorbing dirt and toxins. As if that weren’t enough, it also counteracts aging with its anti-inflammatory properties.
10. Calming body oil
Aveda's Calming Composition Body Oil is perfect after a long day. Not only does it leave skin feeling soft and conditioned, it also has a calming scent. It can be added to bath water, applied after a shower, or used for a soothing scalp or body massage.
11. Beauty on-the-go
You want her to be able to maintain her health routine no matter where she is or what she’s up to, and Amala Handbag Essentials will help her reach that goal. The purse-friendly gift pack contains a hydrating hand cream, rejuvenating hand cream and soothing lip balm.
