Gift Ideas for Mom with a Fitness Twist

Skip the mixed bouquet. This Mother’s Day give the first special woman in your life the best gift of all: Health. You don’t have to invest in a yearlong gym membership for mom (although not a bad idea) or put a bow around a stair climber. What you can do is give your mom a gift that says you care about how she feels both mentally and physically.

Here are a few great Mother’s Day gifts that say you want her in your life and running on max for a long time:


1) DARK CHOCOLATE

If Mom is expecting a little sweetness on her big day, then give the gift of dark chocolate. Dark chocolate’s 70 to 85 percent cocoa content contains fiber, iron, and magnesium. It also is packed with antioxidants that get rid of free radicals that led to heart disease. Tip: Choose dark chocolate with lower sugar content meaning less calories.

6) THERAPEUTIC MASSAGE

Mom works hard for the family, so to help her relax buy her a therapeutic massage. Benefits include de-stressing, helping with insomnia issues, and reducing headaches and digestive disorders. A therapeutic massage is also great for mom because the practitioner can use a light touch to release tension, relax muscles and increase blood and lymph circulation. Tip: If you book at certain spas then Mom will be able to use the other amenities including a pool or steam room after the massage is over.



 



7) ESSENTIAL OILS

If mom wants the smell of her special day to linger then buy her essential oils, highly concentrated non-water soluble phytochemicals that are distilled from plants. Some favorite scents include peppermint, lavender, lemon, lime, and orange. The healthy benefits include improving immunity, speeding up illness recovery, balancing hormones, improved digestion, de-stressing and even helping to improve respiratory issues. Tip: Tell mom to put some of the oils on her shower head to make her bathroom smell like a spa.
