Mothers Day Gift Guide for Runners

Mother’s day is fast approaching and if you are like me, you may still be scrambling to find the perfect gift for the mother in your life.

For the mom who loves to read.

A gift subscription to Women’s Running Magazine is an easy inexpensive last minute gift to give. Purchase a recent copy from your local target to give as a gift on the big day. Pick up a card while you are at it and your gift is complete in no time flat.

For the gear loving runner.

Give the gift of health with a Garmin vívofit 2! Runners are often extremely active during certain points of the day, but then slack off a bit the rest of the day. Wearing a step tracker helps keep you accountable to moving during those down hours. Extra bands can be purchased to make this a fashionable, as well as functional gift!

Sparkly Soul Headbands are inexpensive and work better than just about any no slip headband out there. The don’t have a piece of little black elastic in the back like many headband brands do, this means that the non slip material goes completely around your head. I haven’t met a runner yet who hasn’t loved them once they tried them. With over 200 color choices you are sure to find something the mom in your life will like. Not sure what color or width to order, purchase an online gift card!

Feetures socks are my go to gift for any runner. If you aren’t addicted to running specific socks like I am you may be wondering if socks really matter? Do they really make a difference? Yes, yes, yes!! Once you have worn socks that fit your feet like a glove you will not be able to go back to the plain moisture wicking socks you can purchase just about anywhere. These socks come in a bunch of fun colors and make laundry easy as 1, 2, 3 when trying to find the sock-mate.

For the woman who is tired of carrying around a gym bag in a boring color. A coated twill bag from Le Sport Sac can serve as a run bag, gym bag, or even as a travel bag. Prints from Liberty Art fabrics take your bag to the next chic level.

For the mom who takes recovery seriously.

Tired legs are no problem when you have a Roll Recovery. I’ve tested out of a lot of recovery tools over the years and this one still remains my favorite. It looks funny and feel different at first, but once it becomes a weekly part of your running regime, you won’t want to go a day without it.

For the working mother, the Foot Log foot roller is fantastic. Small enough to throw in a purse or gym bag, it feels fantastic to roll your feet while sitting at a desk working on the computer. Inexpensive and highly effective make it worth every cent.

You can’t go wrong with jewelry.

My favorite inexpensive jewelry to give and get are Alex and Ani Bangles. They have a couple of running related ones – a winged foot or It’s not a sprint it’s a marathon. Both bracelets have the option of a silver or gold finish. Looking for something that screams Mother’s Day a little bit more? Check out their Because I Love You bangle!Feetures Gift Guide - Alex and Ani

Looking to spend more? Anna Beck, another favorite jewelry brand, has a beautiful turtle necklace. Who can forget Aesop’s story of the Tortoise and the Hare? Running isn’t always about being the fastest!
