Mother’s Day is around the corner, and if there is ever a year to do something a little extra special for the moms in your life, this is it, don’t you think? (Shout out to all the dad’s too, but they get their day in June ;)). This Mother’s Day gift guide is designed for the moms who aim to live a healthy lifestyle and is entirely quarantine-friendly. If you’re looking for unique and interesting gifts she’ll love, you’ve come to the right place.
There are suggestions for the active mom, the mom who love to be in the kitchen (whether cooking or baking), the mom who’s short on time (aren’t we all right now?) and the new or expecting mom (whether it’s her first or 5th child). Every product or service I’m featuring here is either something I already own, have tried, or have purchased as gifts for others, so I can truly say these are some of my favorite things.

Gifts for the active mom
Athleta oxygen tank: This is currently my favorite workout tank in my drawer. It’s stylish and comfortable, and perfect for anything from spin to yoga.
Salutation stash pocket 7/8 tight: I have 2 pairs of these and am considering a third color because I live in them. They have just the right amount of compression, while also being incredibly comfortable — the fabric is like butter The 7/8 length hits right above my ankle (I’m 5’5”). They are great for lounging (or working from home) or for lighter activities like yoga. The double leg pocket that fits your phone is a game changer.
Triumph Hoodie: I’m also currently living in this. It’s soft, comfy, and the perfect weight for spring days or cooler summer evenings.
Fast and free tight: This is my go-to running/spinning tight, and I also own two colors of these. They are sweat wicking, comfortable, and flattering. Plus the side pocket is perfect for storing a phone or key on the run.
