8 Mother’s Day Gifts for the Wellness Enthusiast

I love to celebrate and create happy times around any holiday. So the Mother’s Day countdown has begun in our house. My son has started coloring cards and is already planning a trip to the store to buy my gift. What I love most about these holidays isn’t always the present itself, but the sentiment behind it. Sure, if I was sent a brand new diamond-studded Apple watch, the healthy gadget girl in me would jump for joy. However, it would be much more meaningful if the giver attached a note saying, “we know you love to power walk for hours; this watch will keep you on time and connected while also tracking your health data.” Thoughtful. Useful. Fun.

I love to create thoughtful gift ideas and am excited to showcase this year’s list of useful, fun and healthy Mother’s Day gifts for the wellness enthusiast.

Mother's Day Gifts for the Wellness Enthusiast

For the Healthy Gift Gadget Girl

TURATA Weighted Ropeless Jump Rope Fitness Speed Rope – I love to jump rope. It remind me of being in elementary school and playing with my friends on the playground. The great news is that jumping rope is an incredible workout that can be done anywhere. That is, if you have high ceilings. While I know I can jump rope outside, it often doesn’t happen. So when I found these speed training jump rope balls, I jumped to get them. For those who travel a lot, they are easy to pack and can be used in a hotel room. Or, for the busy mom that just wants a quick workout anywhere, this gift is an easy to use anywhere item.

For the Green Beauty Mommy or Mom Who Loves to Beautify

CLOVE + HALLOW Lip Velvet – Vegan Natural– Spoil your mom with luxurious new lipsticks that are formulated with non-toxic and few ingredients. I love vegan, award winning Clove + Hallow’s bold colors and nourishing lip velvets and lip glazes.

For the Foodie Mama

Planet Natural Herbal Garden Kits – For the crafty mom that loves to prepare fun foods with the family, an herbal garden kit is a fun and useful project. Planting kits for everyday herbs, foods and trees are listed. Planet Natural sells products for indoor and outdoor gardens as well as natural cleansers and supplies.

Plant Theatre Forbidden Fruit Kit Gift Box – If your mom is more of a smoothie or fruit lover, this gift box with five exotic fruits is a fun and creative gift. The box includes everything needed to start growing forbidden fruits including biodegradable pots, peat discs, plant markers and foil sealed seed sachets.

For the Mom that Loves to Sleep

Slip Sleep Mask – Celebrities are all talking about the Slip sleep masks and pillow cases – These products are made for “beauty not bedding” and are seen as products for anti-aging, anti-sleep crease and anti-bed head.

For the Mom Who Wants to Embrace Positivity

LOLA I-IV-III necklace – The I-IV-III line is the love code 1-4-3 inspired by Minot Ledge Lighthouse in Massachusetts. The lighthouse blinks 1-4-3 in a flashing sequence to communicate the numerical count that is the same as the words I LOVE YOU.

For the Mom that Loves to Read

OttLite Wellness Lamp – This OttLite Wellness Lamp is developed to help you see better by reducing eye strain by 51%. All of the OttLite Wellness lamps are green and energy efficient. LED lighting uses far less energy than other types of lighting and even lasts up to 40K hours. You can help the environment and help your eyes at the same time.

For the local and last minute great gift – Boutique Gym Gift Cards

JoyRide Cycling & Fitness Studio – Give the gift of good health by purchasing a gift card to a local small-business gym like JoyRide. (For my local friends and followers they just opening a new studio in New Haven, CT, too.) JoyRide is a supportive community that inspires all class participants aka any athlete to use the strength built inside the studio as a tool to live a big JOYful life. I’m inspired by the owners (all female), instructors (of all backgrounds) and extremely friendly and motivating attendees.

One Extra Gift for Good Luck – Our Ninth Gift Idea is For the Mom Who Loves an At-Home Spa – Himalayan Sea Salt Dome

Himalayan Foot Detox Half Dome Lamp – Give the gift of relaxation and detoxification with the Himalayan Sea Salt dome. When placing feet on the warm surface it draws toxins out of the body.

    • Thanks for the kind words and for stopping by PrettyWellness.com. I love making these lists. I secretly want to be The Healthy Living Whisperer or better yet a healthy gadget girl. If only this self-proclaimed title could get me an Apple Watch. Have a great week.

  2. Love your ideas, I have to say the garden kit or cooking lesson is my favorite. For the last few years, we have been exchanging memories in our house for Father’s Day. Three years ago it was a cooking lesson for the girls and the Hubs, then paint balling, and last year we did Sky diving indoors….. Funny thing is that is what he and the girls remember, we can’t remember the years past and what we may have purchased.

    • That’s a fabulous idea. My son is now 6, so he will totally remember things we do, more so than the gift he buys for us. I’m curious to hear about sky diving indoors. I think I’m too scared for that, though. I’m a little afraid of heights.

  3. So many good ideas, I’ve always wanted to grow an herb garden!!
