Gifts that are good for her

by Josh Wakerman on Saturday 5 May 2018

Really? You’d forgotten that Mother’s day is only a week away?  
Firstly, you’re probably not alone. 
And secondly, don’t stress we’ve got you covered. 

Especially when it comes to the fitness-focused mum. From gym devotees and team sport players, to strollers of footpaths and active wear enthusiasts, here are our Top 5 gift ideas that mum will love. 

Apple watch

Is your mum/wife/daughter fitness-focused, fashion-forward and tech savvy? Then stop shopping (seriously, stop shopping right now) and just get her this ol’ Apple Watch
The Apple Watch Nike+ is a perfect gift for any mum who loves to run. It packs in GPS for tracking route, pace, and distance, and features the Nike+ Run Club app that tracks progress and encourages running. It also touts all the awesome features of a regular Apple Watch.
Wait, you’re still reading? Go on, shell out for the greatest mum of all!

Nike Running Knit Hat

Image cred:

Ok, so it’s starting to get a little chilly outside, especially in the morning. So if mum likes to walk or  run, then surprise her with this neat knit. (it’s essentially 2 hats for the price of one!)

The Nike Run Lotus Reversible is stylish and functional. It’s made with stretch Dri-FIT fabric to help keep you dry and comfortable and features a graphic on one side and solid brushed fabric on the other for two great looks.  

Custom Yoga Mats

Image cred:

We’re not trying to get all Namaste on you here, but if mum fancies a bit of yoga each week then a very cool gift is a custom yoga mat. Not only will it stand out in the crowd(ed yoga room), but the process of designing one is simple and fun to do…maybe even something you can do together (gift + time spent with mum = major brownie points). 

lululemon Gym Bag 

Image cred:

Ok, it’s officially called the Everywhere Tote, but this is a serious gym bag with style. And on the inside, well, lets just say it’s the queen of functionality with compartments for a laptop, other bits and pieces and most importantly a separate section for sweaty workout gear. 
Oh, there’s even a yoga mat holder just in case you’ve already ordered a custom-designed one above. 

Under Armour JBL Wireless Headphones

Image cred:

There’s nothing worse than working out and your headphones falling out. So why then would you make your very own mother suffer in this way? Why?
Instead, get mum these In-Ear Wireless Headphones. They offer powerful bass, a built-in heart rate monitor and you get voice updates simply by tapping on the right ear bud. Cool, right? 

Yes, you can always get mum active wear, or that dressing gown, or that lottery ticket. But why not do things a little differently this year. Show her you care about her interests and her health with a gift that’s good for her.
