Mums are such wonderful people and it can be hard to find a gift that portrays just how special they are. Guaranteed, the old box of chocolates and bouquet of flowers are sure to make her smile, original and personalised gifts that are tailored to her specific interests can be so much more meaningful and convey how amazing she truly is.
If you want to make a great impression on a mum – whether she’s your mum, your friend, sister, co-worker etc., the first thing you need to do is acknowledge that she’s not just a mum! While she may have items on her baby wish list, a gift for baby isn’t necessarily a gift for mum. She loves and takes pride in caring for her children but remember she also has other interests and once you know what these are, tailor the gift towards them.
Perhaps she’s into training, health and nutrition, she makes decisions each and every day that will lead her to be a healthier and happier person, in turn being the best mum she can be. Fit mums give life their all and may not much time for themselves; by you giving her a personalised and meaningful gift she will know she is special and appreciated. Here are a few ideas.
- A massage: She probably hasn’t had much time for herself lately and if she’s been lifting heavy in the gym or at home (whether that be weights or kids!), she may have some niggling pain and sore spots. Massages can help to relieve tension, especially sports or deep tissue massages, so she’ll be feeling relaxed, refreshed and free of niggles after a much-needed massage. To take any worry away from her of who will watch the kids, organise with her partner, a baby sitter or baby sit them yourself, so she has no choice but to relax and unwind.
- Workout clothes: What women don’t love new workout clothes? They help to give us a motivation and confidence boost, in turn we workout harder, run faster or lift heavier. Your fit mum may not have had the chance to go shopping for herself lately, or if she’s been through a post-bub transformation, she may not have workout clothes that fit her nicely. If you know her size, shop for her, buy her bright, colourful items that she can’t wait to get into. If you’re unsure of her size, a voucher can be a good option. Just make sure she finds time to go out and use the voucher, or even better, go with her for a fun girl’s trip!
- Gym equipment: If your fit mum gets her workout on at home, perhaps she could do with some new equipment to use. She may already have the basics, so find some items she doesn’t have like kettle bells, medicine balls, foam rollers, resistance bands, ankle weights or sliding discs. These items will help her keep in great shape and vary up her routine. If you want to get really creative, there are many baby workout equipment toys available too like toy dumbbells and kettle bells. These will help keep baby preoccupied while mum works out, plus you’ll be helping your fit mum to pass on her love of training to her baby!
- A gift hamper: If you want to give a gift that both mum and baby will love then a gift hamper is perfect. The Guess How Much I Love You baby boy hamper is based on the Guess How Much I Love You story books written by Sam McBratney. Full of items for both mum and bub, it can help to educate and bond the two. Each item in the hamper is carefully thought out and can show the mum just how special she is to you. Containing story books, educational tools, Marquise cotton singlets and booties, as well as tasty cookies for mum to enjoy as a treat, this luxurious and functional gift will be welcomed by fit mums. There is also a baby girl’s version of the hamper as well as many other hamper gift ideas for fit mums and more on The Hamper Emporium. Plus, you can shop them all at your convenience online and receive free delivery Australia-wide.
When you are looking for something truly special for the fit mum(s) in your life, a personalised and thoughtful gift will always be your best bet. By giving her one of the above gifts, she’ll know she is truly cherished and appreciated for the wonderful person she is.
