Mother’s Day Gift Guide: 5 Gift Ideas for Active Moms

Mother’s Day Gift Guide: 5 Gift Ideas for Active Moms

Mother’s Day is May 13th. Instead of waiting until the last minute, get on the ball and buy your favorite mother runner one of these awesome gifts that she is sure to enjoy.

This gift guide offers a few options other than shoes and a GPS (though those are amazing gifts) that will be sure to make any mother runner feel pampered and ready to pound the pavement.

Race Entry Fee

Want to win over her heart in a big way? Buy her an entry to her favorite race.  Even better if it’s one that has been on her bucket list.  For many moms, choosing which races they put on their calendar can come down to the crazy expensive registration fees.  If there is a race on her list that she has been dying to run but has been hesitant to register for because of the cost, Mother’s Day is the perfect time to make her race dreams come true!

Feetures Socks

Socks you say? Well, of course! Proper running socks are imperative to performance (cotton just will not do) and gifting your favorite mother runner with a pair of quality running socks is sure to be appreciated.  Not only do Feetures socks come in a variety of different cushion levels for comfort but they also are constructed to provide support, wick away moisture and prevent blisters.  Because, let’s be real, blisters can be a real bummer and busy moms certainly don’t have time for that! And now Feetures aren't just for running, our new Everyday line, places running sock technology into socks for every day, that way she can be comfortable no matter where she's going and no matter what she's doing. 

Spa Day

On the flip side, maybe she just finished her a race and her body could use a little repair? What better gift than a day at the spa? Being not only a mother but also a dedicated runner can be quite exhausting. A massage, pedicure or day away from all the craziness can do a lot to not only rejuvenate her body but also her mind.

Recovery Sandals

If a spa day is a bit out of your budget, then recovery sandals are a great alternative.  In fact, sandals like these PR Soles from Gone for a Run or Oofos Recovery Sandals will soothe her sore soles after each and every run- it’s a foot massage with every step she takes!

Running Inspired Jewelry

Maybe she is more of the sentimental type that would appreciate something to mark a running milestone or motivate her when she is on the run.  Running related necklaces, bracelets, rings, pendants and motivational wraps from Scott James Jewelry, Run Molly Run and Momentum Jewelry all have great pieces that can help mark her running achievements.
