Ditch the chocolate this year and give your mom a gift she really wants! Here are some of my top picks for a healthier Mother’s Day gift.
I can’t believe Mother’s Day is almost upon us!
Mother’s Day is one of my favourite celebrations. Of course, it’s not about how big a gift we can receive, it’s those special, small gifts that our kids or someone special makes us <3
But, I do believe that my husband should get me something nice! Don’t you? I mean, c’mon, we all deserve to be pampered once in a while.
I’ve put together a gift list that you can forward to someone special or use to inspire a gift for you or a special woman in your life!
#1: Spa Gift Certificate
I’m sure this one is pretty obvious. I don’t know a woman who wouldn’t love a day at the spa! Massages, pedicures, manicures, facials, you name it. Someone doting on us for a day sounds good to me. Plus, some of us need that extra push to actually go and do something special for ourselves.
And if your mom doesn’t have time to go to the spa, have them come to you! There are many people who offer spa services in the comfort of your own home.
#2: Instant Pot
I was a little skeptical of the Instant Pot when my husband first mentioned it to me. He said I could cook a meal in just 20 minutes! Turns out, I can! I use it at least once a week. We use it mainly for hard boiled eggs. I can make the boys hard boiled eggs in 5 minutes and they are SO easy to peel. It’s worth it just for that.
#3: Breakfast In Bed
This is a simple one and doesn’t require any money spent.
How many times has your mom made breakfast for you? I think it’s time to return the favour by serving her breakfast in bed! My recipe for Low Carb Ham and Eggs Cups are sure to please, or else try my Fluffy and Delicious Low Carb Pancakes topped off with real whipped cream! And the best part – both recipes are actually healthy!
#4: Bluetooth Earbuds
I hate my current headphones. The wires are always getting caught on something! I need a pair of wireless earbuds (hint, hint!) These ones are great for workouts and won’t fall out.
#5: Beachbody on Demand
Maybe your mom isn’t much for working out at the gym. Save time and money with the all new Beachbody on Demand All Access Pass! Stream 100’s of workouts to your phone, tablet, computer, or smart TV. She’ll never get bored as there are literally hundreds of workouts to choose from. I use mine every single day!
#6: Drop a Dress Size Group
Okay, so you’re thinking the workouts may be a good idea, but maybe your mom needs some extra motivation to exercise. That’s where my Drop a Dress Size groups come it! Your mom will get a low carb meal plan that’s easy to follow, my daily videos and tips on how to balance hormones to lose weight, as well as the support and motivation from a small group of women. And..it’s all done from the comfort of your own home in a private virtual group. We start May 15th!!
#7: Homemade Body Butter
Every mom loves a good body cream! Avoid all the toxins and chemicals in the store bought creams and make your own. It’s so easy! Here’s my recipe. And, she’ll really appreciate a homemade gift 🙂
#8: Erin Condren Planner
I’m in love with my Erin Condren Planner. Who knew it was so much fun to plan your week! You get cute little stickers and lots of fun things with your planner. And the best part is, you get to design your own planner. It’s a must for busy moms!
#9: The Ring Doorbell
Does your mom hate answering the door like I do?! Now, you don’t have to answer the door with the Ring doorbell! The doorbell connects to an app on your phone so no matter where you are, you can see and talk to anyone at your front door. It also has a motion detector to alert you if someone is nearby. I especially love it because I know when my Shakeology order arrives 😉
#10: Other Fun Gift Ideas
- a picnic (assuming the weather is nice)
- Tickets to your local theatre
- A basket of gardening supplies
- Not having to cook or clean for a day!
