Healthy Mother's Day Gifts
Moms work SO hard all year long to help their families thrive…so why shouldn’t we do the same for them? You’ve probably already heard that one of the greatest gifts is the gift of health, and considering how great mom is, helping her be healthier and happier is the very least we can do for her.
Just some of the outstanding, and healthy, mother’s day gifts you may want to consider include:

A Fruit Bouquet
Dietary guidelines call for five to 13 servings of fruit and veggies a day, but the average American mom only gets three, according to Harvard School of Public Health. Gift her a delicious and gorgeous fruit bouquet from Edible Arrangements — you know she’ll share!
A Gardening Bag
Help Mom bloom by giving her a beautiful canvas gardening tote filled with everything she’ll love to grow beautiful flowers and vegetables. Most bags contain seeds to plant, and garden tools to use year after year. Some bags even contain extra little treats, such as lotions and potions to help her relax and be pampered.
If your mom is a fan of Spinning or wants to give yoga a try, set her up with a few classes. Many studios offer gift certificates or three-, five-class or week-long passes that you can purchase and hand off to mom to try at her leisure.
Regular tea drinkers boast health benefits like protection against heart disease and Parkinson’s. Combine some of your favorite flavors in a pretty basket with a cute teapot and/or mug, and you’ve got a simple, healthful gift that she’ll be able to use all year long.
DIY Spa Kit
A visit to the spa can do wonders to help busy moms de-stress, but all that pampering can be pricey. Set her up with all the tools she needs to rejuvenate at home with a home spa kit, filled with spa essentials like bath creams, salts, candles, pumice stones, sponges…and maybe even a cozy spa robe.
Spa Gift Certificate
Yes, spas can be pricey, but it’s your mom! You simply cannot go wrong with an “I Owe You” for a relaxing massage. Pick one up at a local spa, then put it in a beautiful card with a bow.
…and of course…
Be it a bunch of her favorites flowers or a new plant, there’s just something about them that brings a much-deserved smile to her face. And smiles are some of the healthiest things of all…
Happy Mother’s Day!!!
