3. Cute water bottle. Help keep her hydrated for those sweat sessions!

If I’m your mom you should get me this:

But I’m not (unless I have a child out there I don’t know about…) so you might consider…

4. New workout gear. Check out her stuff and figure out what she needs and what she already likes. I’m kinda in love with this Yoga Mom tee (maternity). Or this Run Like a Mother Tee…

5. Wine of the month club. Because. Well, just because it’s awesome.

6. Herb plants (or fruit). Better than flowers – she can enjoy the sight, smell and taste! Tip: Check you local nursery for easy care options. Trader Joe’s might have some too.

Run Like a Mother is another good option or a subscription to her fave fitness or healthy living magazine.

9. A new yoga mat or gym bag.


10. Gift certificate to her favorite smoothie shop! Bonus points if you take her out for a smoothie and a walk.

    Lately I have been buying a bottle of expensive (okay, like $40) wine and drinking it with my mom. It’s a perfect excuse for bonding! I’ll probably also get her a plant since she’s a crazy gardener.

    My sisters and I are getting my mom and gift card to a store she shops at often. We personalized the GC with pics of her grandkids, so it’s a win/win :-) I also got her a Run Happy visor, because everyone needs to remember that mantra!

    That yoga mat is awesome!! I got my mom some customized garden markers and will be getting her a potted plant to go with it. Can’t decide between flowers or edibles but a strawberry plant sounds super cute so I may go that route!

    My mom has been gone for 13 years so I don’t get to worry about a present for her anymore (boo!), but my daughter and I will do the Run Like A Mother 5k together. More than anything, getting ‘love you, mom’ from each of my kids (3 grown boys, and 1 teenage girl) is what makes my heart swell. However, if I come home from the run to a clean house (like a crew came in a worked their magic) – I will be over the moon ecstatic!

    I got my mom tickets (duh, one for me, too!) to see Matt Nathanson, Gavin Degraw, and Mary Lambert in concert this June. Apparently I love giving gifts to myself while I bestow them upon others. :)

    I always buy my mom a hanging flower basket. Every time she sees it , she can think of her favorite daughter, lol!!

    I am so buying the Sriracha water bottle 😉
