Mother’s Day Gift Ideas for Fit Mamas

I really can’t believe that I’ll soon be celebrating my 2nd mother’s day with the G’s.  The other day someone asked me what I was hoping they would get me for Mother’s Day … I responded with a blank stare.  Huh, I guess I get Mother’s Day gifts now.  You know, being a mother and all.

Mother’s Day still feels like a holiday for my mom, not for me.  Its a day for making breakfasts in bed (I believe my specialty was peanut butter and butter sandwiches.  No need for jelly, obviously).  Or gifting handcrafted necklaces made of the finest macaroni I could find.

My poor mom.  I’m sorry about that.

I’m happy to report that after coming to terms with the fact that I will be celebrated on Sunday I now have a concise list of “suggestions”.  G’s, please take note.  I love breakfast in bed and handmade jewelry and but with a side of fitness gear.  Cool?

My Mother’s Day Fit List

Typically everything on this list would start with Lu and end with Mon but some of my current fit gear obsessions are coming from some new contenders …

New Balance 890’s.  Special Boston Marathon Edition


These are the best shoes I’ve ever run in.  That’s a bold statement BUT I’m pretty sure that they have cured my achy knee and improved my stride immensely.  AND they come in lots of pretty colors.  Including a Boston Marathon inspired color … NEED!

New Balance Anue Yoga Spree Capri


You know when you’re in a yoga class and you roll slowly down onto your back in a zenified state of mind and OMG! that zipper on the back of your run capris digs into your vertebrae.  It sucks.  It ruins my chi.  Enter zipper-less capris 🙂  And check out this potent purple color!

Firedaughter Amaze Yourself Tank Top.  


I already have 4 pieces from FireDaughter and I wear one of them daily.  I’m obsessed.  The cottons are soft, the prints are adorable and they are unique.

Lululemon surf n’ turf tote


This one makes the fit gear list by being ingeniuously lined with a removable water resistant bag.  Because you know you put your sweaty clothes directly in your bag after your workout too …

Nike Miler Sunglasses


Summers coming!  My running sunglasses got smushed at the end of last summer …

5 pack of classes at Exceed Fitness.  


This one is for the New Yorkers.  I’m kinda stalking this place.  I’ve walked past it a few dozen times, I’ve even been inside to check out the amazing layout … After a glowing review on Rate Your Burn I’m dying to try their classes.  After all, I heart TRX.

And there you have it!  What is on the top of your Mother’s Day Fit list?

  1. I’d love some new sports bras. Most of mine are older than my kids and very stretched out. I also need a pair of cross trainers, but I don’t know what to get. I have always worked out in running sneakers. Oh, and the time to get a massage. 🙂 I’ll even pay for the massage myself.

  2. I bet my mum will be so excited if you buy her the handbag. It looks really cool. But she liked the gift I gave her for mothers day. I may just buy her the bag as a special gift. Is it available in stores online?
