Mother’s Day is coming up on the 8th of May. The traditional gift might be a box of chocolates, but what if your Mom is trying to get healthy or you fancy getting her a more unique gift this year?
We’ve put together a few ideas for thoughtful gifts for health-conscious moms.
A Guided Hike
Does your Mom love exploring, being in nature, and getting lost in the great outdoors? If so, treat her to a guided hiking experience somewhere beautiful and unusual. On a guided hike, an experienced guide leads a group on a walk of a set length. It’s an opportunity to see somewhere new and make new friends.
Experience-based gifts are incredibly popular and the memories last far longer than any material gift. Guided hikes are available in locations across the US and the world.
Why not join her and make it a fun, memorable experience for the two of you to do together?
A Cooking Class
If your Mom loves to cook, a class that will allow her to improve her skills and learn to cook a new type of cuisine will be a win win for everybody. Cooking classes give participants a chance to try new techniques, use equipment they don’t have access to at home, and get feedback from expert tutors. Plus, you get to eat yummy food!
She could learn how to make pastry, sushi, Spanish tapas, or pasta from scratch. If she has a favorite chef, check to see if they offer courses or masterclasses. And if your Mom is tech savvy and doesn’t live close to a class location, online courses are also widely available.
This is another fun activity that the two of you can do together.
Dancing is great fun and has amazing mental health benefits while being a fantastic way to keep fit physically. If your mom is the active type or trying to improve her fitness, a course of dance classes makes a lovely Mother’s Day gift.
Beginner dance classes in a wide range of styles are available in all major towns and cities. If you’re not sure what style she’d most like to learn, many studios will allow you to buy a gift card so she can choose a class for herself.
If dance isn’t her style, how about yoga classes instead?
Fitness enthusiasts can never have too much comfortable, stylish activewear. A new running top, pair of yoga pants, or set of running shoes could all make a great gift. Bonus points if it’s something your Mom wouldn’t normally buy for herself.
If you’re not sure of her size or style preferences, give her a gift card to a high-end activewear store or take her shopping to choose something perfect.

A Fitness Tracker
Millions of people use fitness trackers to improve their health and wellbeing, whether they use them to count steps, track calories, or record workout progress.
If your Mom has a goal of improving her fitness, a tracker such as a Fitbit or Apple Watch is a thoughtful and practical gift. You can also get wristbands in all kinds of colors and styles, so she can match her tracker to whatever she’s wearing and look stylish every day!
A Wellbeing Journal
If your Mom prefers pen and paper over digital tools, a wellbeing journal is a lovely gift to help her keep track of her health and fitness goals. Available from stationary stores and in all kinds of beautiful designs, wellbeing journals can be used to track fitness, food, sleep, and many other wellness metrics.
A Healthy Food Hamper
If your Mom is a foodie but trying to eat healthily, a hamper of delicious and healthy treats is a wonderful gift. You can buy hampers to meet all kinds of dietary requirements, from vegan to gluten-free to sugar-free, or you can buy a basket and put together your own with all her favorite healthy treats.
