Is your mom a fit foodie? Get inspired with my selection of Mother’s Day gifts that supports your fit mom’s lifestyle! Psst: it’s okay if you decide to shop these presents for yourself 😉
* Yoga starter kit
If your mom doesn’t want to be attached to a gym membership, give her a yoga starter kit for home yoga workouts. The Gaiam yoga starter kit contains a yoga mat, yoga strap, yoga block and yoga instruction DVD.
Is your fit mom glued to the screen of her smartphone and is she a gadget freak? Then the Garmin Vívofit Activity Tracker is a must-have for her! The device is small and available in different colors. The little gadget tracks steps and calories, sleep patterns and can be linked to a heart rate monitor. She can sync her data with an app on her smartphone or with her computer.
* Kettlebell set
Another ideal gift for your fit mom! With a proper kettlebell swing she’ll train her endurance and work her entire body; legs and buttocks to arms and shoulders. With this set of Sportbay kettlebells ranging from 2 to 6 kg mom is able to workout at home.
Cool: your mom doing pull-ups and chin-ups! The Iron Gym Xtreme is easily attached to the door frame, offering mom the opportunity to train at home.
* Voucher for a personal training session
Would your mom like to workout, but does she need that little push? Or could she get more out of their training, but does she need help with that? Consider a voucher for a session or series of sessions of personal training. Most gyms offer such voucher and otherwise you could ask a personal trainer to make a special voucher for your mom. Of course I recommend my favorite personal trainer Ronald Kraaijenbrink (who’s clients have been top models Ymre Stiekema, Elza Luijendijk and also me).
For foodie moms
* Subscription to Hello Fresh
Is your mama a busy one? Treat her with a Hello Fresh subscription! Hello Fresh delivers subscription-based ingredients for fresh meals with recipes in a box at home. Also available as a vegetarian box.
* Blender to-go
Is your mom always in a hurry and on-the-go? Then this personal blender by Princess is an ideal device for her. She just has to fill the bottle with her favorite smoothie ingredients, blend, screw the lid onto the bottle and take it with her in her purse. The blender comes with 2 bottles in size small and large. Available in red, orange and green. I personally have this machine in red.
* Waffle iron
Combine 1 banana, 1 egg, 3 tablespoons of buckwheat flour, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 3 tablespoons (plant-based) milk or yogurt and 1 tablespoon coconut oil. Heat the waffle iron and grease with coconut oil.
* Indoor mini garden with herb seeds
Cute, this wire basket in copper color by Sissyboy Homeland! A stylish and organised solution for mom to store her loose jars of oatmeal, flaxseed, and superfoods on the counter.
