Mother’s are special people and I am extremely blessed to have my mother just ten minutes away and my mother-in-law only two and a half hours away.  May is a time to celebrate mothers and May is quickly approaching.  If you are anything like me, you are already thinking of what to get her.  Now, I know many of you reading this might not have your mother around but you might be a mom so show this list to your husband and children. 
Here are my favorite 20 gift ideas for the healthy mom

1. A weekend bag for the mom who enjoys quick, weekend trips with friends and family.  Bags she will enjoy can be found at Pottery Barn, LL Bean, Lands End, Amazon, Macys, Marley Lilly.  
2. Dry Brushes.  For more information on what dry brushes are and their health benefits click HERE  
Brushes can be found on Amazon.
3. Organic Robe for the mom who enjoys relaxing.  For ideas on where to find a robe check out Sand cloud, PACT, and or Coyuchi.
4. Massage Guns, Foam Rollers or buy a massage from a local therapist.  
This is the perfect gift for the mom on the go that needs to unwind and relax or for the athletic mom who needs to take care of her muscles.  Massage guns and foam rollers can be found on Amazon.  If you are local to Beaufort, I suggest Luke Norris for a massage or Beaufort Day Spa.
5. Reusable Grocery Bags.  
This is the perfect gift for the environmentally conscious mom.  These bags are durable, can be washed and can be used over and over again.  You can find these bags on Amazon.

  1. Gift Card to her local run store. Running and walking shoes are very dependent on the individual so it is hard to get shoes for someone else. Giving a gift card can give her the opportunity to visit the store and get fitted for the shoe that is perfect for her.  If you live in Beaufort, visit Grounded Running.
  2. Essential Oil Diffuser. A diffuser helps you to relax and promotes a calm feeling. This is the perfect gift for the busy, stressed out mom.  Diffusers can be found on Amazon.
  3. Non-Toxic Candles. Much like the diffuser, candles can also help you to relax and feel calm. Non-toxic candles burn longer and do not come with any questionable ingredients like paraffin wax, synthetic fragrances and inferior oils.  Non-toxic candles can be found online at Aware Candle Co., Brooklyn Candle Studio and Grow Fragrance.  If you are local to Beaufort, Bathe has homemade candles.
  4. Monogrammed, Cosmetic Bag and Cosmetics. Marleylilly has monogrammed bags and non –toxic makeup (clean, organic ingredients) can be found at Annmarie Skincare. For 25% at annmarie click HERE.
  5. A Journal. Journals are always a great gift for the mom who enjoys writing or has a lot on her mind. Journaling can be a great way to reduce stress.  Amazon has a great selection of journals.
  6. High-Waisted Yoga Pants. For the mom who enjoys yoga at home or in a studio, yoga pants are a must. The following companies have high-waisted, fashionable, affordable and comfortable choices: Athleta, Under Armour, Old Navy, GAP and Target.
  7. A new Applewatch or Band, Garmin or Fitbit. You can’t go wrong with any of these watches. All three are stylish and can give your mom a glimpse into her health from the amount of steps she takes to her sleep and heart rate. These watches can be found online at Apple, Garmin or Fitbit or all three can be found on Amazon.
  8. Yoga Mat. If your mom is serious about yoga, she needs her own mat. Mats can be found on Amazon or in stores like Target and Walmart and even TJ Maxx.  The best mats are Jade, Lululemon or Manduka.
  9. 14. Earbuds. Earbuds are the perfect gift for the mom who enjoys getting outside for walks or runs or working out in the gym. You can find earbuds at the Apple store online or on Amazon.
  10. A Hydroflask Waterbottle Anyone serious about health knows how important drinking enough water is. A hydro flask water bottle keeps water cold.  You can find these water bottles on Amazon.
  11. Glass Storage Containers Glass is the healthier choice when it comes to storage.  These containers can be found on Amazon.
  12. Blender. A blender is a great gift for the mom who enjoys making her own dressings, nut butters and of course smoothies and protein shakes. Amazon has great choices of blenders like the E310 Explorian, Nutribullet and Breville. 
  13. Instant Pot. The instant pot is the perfect gift for the busy mom but the mom who knows home cooking is the best choice for her family. Check out Amazon.
