Mother’s Day gift guide: Presents active moms will love
By Brittany Anas
She showers you with motherly love all year round and you’ve got one day to show your appreciation in return. No pressure. You’ve got this.
You know Mother’s Day is important to your mama (look no further than her jewelry drawer that mingles the macaroni necklace you made her in grade school with her other precious jewels or the hall closet where she stashes all of the cards you’ve ever gifted to her).
We’re here to help plan an amazing day for your mom and help you find amazing gifts for moms that are active, love the outdoors or love fitness.

- Cruiser bike. This fun and (and charming) Huffy Panama Jack cruiser will let her take leisurely rides around the neighborhood, trails and, with a basket, attached makes it perfect for quick trips to nearby stores or for running errands. Gift her with a bike and a promise for a Sunday afternoon bike ride. Extra points if you present it with a bow on the seat and a pink lemonade in the beverage holder.
- Spa Day! Give her the gift of relaxation by booking her a massage. Let her choose the type she wants, but a deep-tissue is always a great way to loosen up tense muscles. Create a theme around the gift by giving mom a Gilligan & O’Malley Robe (on sale for $19.99) and lotions from the Sonia Kashuk line so that she can make relaxation a part of her weekly routine, too.
- Yoga accessories. If mom is a regular at the yoga studio, consider a gift basket with some new gear and accessories. Some ideas for the basket: Gaiam Super Yoga Mat Wash; no-slip yoga socks; and a Champion Yoga layering T-shirt with a bottom side drawstring for the perfect fit.
- Floppy hat. If mom is planning to spend a lot of time in the outdoors this summer — whether it’s cheering on kiddos at their pool meets or swimming at a nearby reservoir or ocean — gift her with some hot-weather accessories that will also keep her safe in the sun. We’re loving the selection of floppy hats at Target that not only look chic, but also offer much-needed protection from the sun. Our fave is this Merona Floppy Hat with Brown Tie in blue and white.
(Money-saving tip: Just in time for Mother’s Day, you’ll get buy one, get one half off on women’s accessories at Target!)
