As we near Mother’s Day once again, it’s time we stop and think about all the amazing things our mothers do for us. But let’s be honest, it’s also a time when we try to say all those things with the perfect gift. Here are some of our picks for the special women in your life this year.
Helping her stay active
Health and fitness is really important these days. Whether mum is a health nut or a little skeptical, a little support can go a long way. A failsafe way to get more activity into your weekend and give back to a good cause is to sign up for the Mother’s Day Classic. Spend a few hours walking the Tan, talking to mum, and giving back to the Cancer Council.
Or if mum wants a little continued support, the new Fitbit Alta is the perfect companion. This new watch tracks all-day activity, reminds you to move when you’ve been sitting for too long, tracks sleep, sends you all, text, and calendar alerts, and of course tells the time.
If your special lady is new to fitness and wants to try classes in her area, a subscription to Class Pass gives her access to hundreds of studios around town ranging from yoga, pilates, fitness, boxing, and gyms.
When she is constantly learning new things
Is your mum constantly reading books, writing lists, and all round trying to seek and learn more? We’ve got some pieces that will help her everyday.
If she’s a goal setting, a list writer, and a diary nut, MiGoals is her new best friend. Goal setting books, frank notebooks, and diaries help her stay on track.
If she’s looking for a new personal development journey Wellineux’s daily journey JOM (or Journey of Me) is a wonderful eight month long journey covering nutrition, movement, mind, connection, sleep, and more.
When she’s constantly fixing you a plate
We all know those women. You can’t walk into their house without them making you a snack. Probably one of the best of your life. Say thanks in kind. With food. Beerenberg can help her with literally any sauce or preserve she’s ever wanted. Go for the Harvest Hamper to make sure she gets the lot.
Or if mum is more of a healthy eater, the GoodnessMe Box will send her monthly boxes of healthy goodness to add to her cooking routine.
