Mother’s Day gift ideas for the running mom
Sweaty Bands – Uber-stylish no slip headbands for runners and nons. Trust me, she’ll thank you! (They come in a ton of styles and will fit any fashion statement she wants to make on race day!)
Mile Markers: The 26.2 Most Important Reasons Why Women Run by Kristin Armstrong – I am a huge fan of her blog and I expect that the book will be just as inspiring. Give the running mama in your life this book and some time alone in a bubble bath and trust me, she’ll be a happy camper. (Add a bottle of wine and you’ll earn bonus points.)
Smushees – Never heard of them? Neither had I. Let me just say that they are heaven for your feet. You know those micro-beads found in bean bags and travel pillows? They are the prime component in these uber-plush flip flops. I almost feel guilty wearing them around the house. ALMOST.
Mother’s Day gift ideas for the new mom
You’ll lose the Baby Weight by Dawn Meehan – Dawn is one of the funniest bloggers I know. I met her last year at BlogHer and I swear I made a complete idiot of myself gushing about how much I loved her writing. I think she has me listed as a stalker. In any event, this book is one that I recommend for the new moms of the world. Funny. Irreverent. Real.
(seed) Relaxing Lavender Body Cream – This one I’m taking personal credit for. It was totally my idea. MINE. Well, okay, maybe not exactly but I do remember whining to Ben & Rebecca (the owners) about loving their Lavender lotion so much that I wanted to bath in it or slather it on like butter. This, my friends, is the next best thing. The lavender in this thick, rich, creamy concoction is soothing and calming. Added benefit – all natural ingredients like Grape seed oil, Shea Butter, Green Tea Extract and Aloe.
Mother’s Day gift ideas for the working mom
Scout Bag – What better way to haul your files back and forth to work then with this Bungalow Scout Bag from Haute Lava? My fav is the “Uptown Girl,” a stylish mid-size zipper-top tote with long straps. (It even fits your laptop inside!) Plus, the customer service is great! I feel like I made a friend through our interaction on Twitter. Love!
Custom Technology Skins – If the mom in your life loves technology, then you can’t go wrong creating a custom skin for her laptop, iPad or iPhone. Choose from tons of fabulous designs or create a unique one especially for the lady in your life. If she is anything like me, you can’t go wrong!
Flowers Delivered – A mother always enjoys receiving beautiful delivered flowers to her house. Surprise yours with beautiful arrangements that suit every personality.
