Mother’s Day gift ideas for the sporty mom

Your mother is fit, sporty and always on the go. Whether she loves hiking, running or water sports, we have some terrific Mother’s Day gift ideas that every sporty mom will appreciate.

Fitness monitor

Mother's Day gift - Fitness monitor

If your mom loves running, help her prepare for her next event with the RCX3 (Polar, $220). This fitness monitor tracks route, speed and distance with the optional GPS sensor. It provides instant feedback after each session and helps you train at the right intensity. The RCX3 also lets you share your training with friends and helps you find the balance between rest and training.

Waterproof camera

Mother's Day gift - Underwater camera

From whitewater river rafting to scuba diving to deep sea fishing, the sporty mom loves any (and every) water adventure. She’ll definitely appreciate a waterproof camera to shoot all her activities — even if it’s just playing with her kids at the beach. The Intova Sport HD Digital Camera (Seavenger, $168) is waterproof to 200 feet and even takes full 1080p high-def video.

Hiking shoes

Mother's Day gift - Trail shoes

Whether your mom loves to hike in the local park or through mountainous terrain, she’ll love KURU trail shoes (KURU Footwear, $111). These shoes feature the KuruSole for maximum shock absorption and comfort, and the HeelKradl to naturally cushion her feet. The result is amazing shoes that help improve performance and provide a healthy, flexible barefoot-like feel. The company is also committed to sustainability and donates a portion of its profits to charity.

Yoga wear

Mother's Day gift - Lululemon jacket

If your mom loves yoga, then clothes from lululemon are a must. Their sports bras, tanks, tops, jackets, pants and other items are regarded as some of the best available. Lululemon has a huge following of celebrities and women around the globe. If you get just one piece, make it the Define jacket (lululemon, $99). Perfect for yoga or running, this jacket features a four-way stretch, moisture-wicking and breathable fabric for ultimate comfort.
