It's already May and that means that Mother's Day is right around the corner - it's time to start searching for the perfect gift!
Let's face it, Moms are amazing people who deserve to be spoiled – I mean, none of us would be here without them (literally). But that being said, sometimes it's tough to know exactly what to get to really show your Mom your full appreciation. With the same holiday coming each year, what can you get that's unique and special?
In response to this very question, we've put together a special Mother's Day gift guide that has a focus on health and wellness, so you can give the perfect gift that shows Mom just how much you love her.
Without further ado, here's our Ultimate Mother's Day Gift Guide!
What better way to encourage a healthy lifestyle than with an activity tracker? Garmin has several activity trackers that have handy features like water-resistance and activity data tracking. Check out one of our newer Garmins, the Vivofit 4, which has a sleek design at an affordable price point.
Hydration is key to any lifestyle of wellness, so why not hydrate in style? Swell bottles are all the rage right now, and for good reason. Made from insulated metal, the bottle will keep any beverage, either hot or cold, at the right temperature for hours at a time. And with a large variety of patterns and colours to choose from, Mom will be happily hydrated 24/7.
There are so many great exercise classes offered nowadays, and spin classes are a classic choice. Instead of being bored and unmotivated at the gym, your Mom can enjoy a fun, lively and invigorating 50-minute class on an exercise bike with other like-minded, healthful people. Some recommendations for great studios are One Cycle in Calgary, Eastwood Cycle in Vancouver and Rocket Cycle in Toronto.
The Varier MOVE stool is an active seating solution that looks stylish too. Your Mom can easily use this stool either at home or in the office to promote better posture and greater movement throughout the day. With both chic colours and a NEAT Certification, this gift really is a win-win.
This healthy cookbook is a big hit in the vegan community for a reason. It has tons of options for entrees, desserts, salads, smoothies and more, all of which are completely vegan but still meet the nutritional requirements our bodies need. Even if your Mom is not a vegan, these recipes are still delicious and can easily swap vegan ingredients for non-vegan ones (I.e. cow's milk instead of almond milk). Gift the Oh She Glows Cookbook and start cooking today!
Indoor plants are known to provide a more peaceful atmosphere that can do wonders for mental health. If you're looking for something a little more special, Plant is an adorable shop local to Calgary that offers tons of unique options for both indoor and outdoor plants. There are a large variety of succulents available, as well as air plant and terrarium displays. Whether you're in the Calgary area or not, a carefully designed plant display is a truly thoughtful gift.
The Variable Balans Kneeler is another active seating solution from Varier. This kneeler boosts back health by relieving a lot of the tension in the spine and shoulders that often comes with sitting. If your Mom has chiropractic issues or has to sit for long hours of the day, this is the gift for her.
Who doesn’t love a luxurious bath product? There are tons of options available out there, many of which have therapeutic qualities that can help with health issues such as chronic stress or insomnia. Some stores that offer excellent options for these gifts include Lush, Rocky Mountain Soap and The Apothecary.
The Desk Pedals are the ideal solution for any Mom with restless legs. Instead of having to sit still for hours at a time, the Desk Pedals allow your legs to keep moving throughout the day, thus improving circulation. As an added bonus, you can use the pedals standing up as a mini elliptical! (Another bonus for you: these are on sale right now!)
Whatever gift you end up getting for your Mom, remember to treat her well and show your appreciation this Mother's Day. From everyone here at Fitneff, Happy Mother's Day to all of the incredible Moms out there!

With back-to-school season approaching quickly, we thought we would take some time to reflect on the importance of movement and physical activity for young children. With kids spending the majority of their days in the classroom, there’s no better place to implement activity that will set children up for a healthy lifestyle. There are so many benefits to encouraging movement in young children; take a look at them here!
