Mother’s Day is just a few short weeks away. Sure, you could get mom flowers or a sweater. But why not match the gift to the mom! If your mom is into fitness, running and the great outdoors here are three gift ideas that will save the (Mother’s) day:
Brooks Women’s D’lite 4″ Low Rise Short
Mother’s Day gift guide item #1 for the fitness-minded mom: Brooks Women’s D’lite 4″ Low Rise Short
Brooks follows the simplest business model: Do one thing and do it very well. What Brooks does is running shoes and running apparel and they do it like champs! This brand has become my go-to supplier for running gear and if your mom is a runner she’ll love them too.
The apparel is technically accurate and rich with intuitive features. These 4″ Low Rise Shorts feel like a light super soft suede. The side mesh panels are stunning in a floral fabric. The fit is semi-fitted so if you’re between sizes you may want to go up to the larger size. With a hidden zip pocket, they make a great gift for mom! Pair them with the Women’s D’lite Reversible Racerback for a minimalistic approach to staying cool while running this summer.
Brooks Women’s D’Lite Reversible Racerback
Mother’s Day gift guide item #2 for the fitness-minded mom: Brooks Women’s D’Lite Reversible Racerback
Even though the mercury in your area might not hint at summer quite yet, hot days are ahead. If your mom is into fitness and running, she’ll appreciate these cool and stylish racerback tanks from Brooks when the weather gets too hot to handle. Hot and humid days ahead? No problem! Light as air, this tank has two layers of mesh in the front for modesty. The elastic gathering in the back is super cute. Coordinates with running shorts in the D’Lite collection; comes in a gaggle of colors too.
Patagonia Women’s Torrentshell Stretch Jacket
Mother’s Day gift guide item #3 for the fitness-minded mom: Patagonia Women’s Torrentshell Stretch Jacket (shown in Aloe Green).
Rain, rain go away. But if it doesn’t and if your active mom is headed into the outdoors this spring, keep her dry with this feature-rich waterproof rain jacket from Patagonia. Unlike most rain jackets, the Torrentshell has a bit of stretch for added comfort and ease in movement. Weighing in at 11.9 oz it doesn’t weigh down your luggage when traveling. A bit of a splurge, but your mom is worth it, right? This jacket will go everywhere with me this summer, just in case. I might even look forward to hiking in the rain just to wear it on the trail.
