It is that time of year again – Mother’s Day! Are you looking for the perfect gift for your Mom or Baby-Mama? Does she enjoy running? Well here are some gift ideas for you:
Gift 1: Reflective Jacket
We are getting close to that time of year that runs tend to happen in the early morning or in the evening. It is crucial that if you go out for a run at dusk that you wear proper reflective clothing so that cars and other moving objects (bikes, skateboarders) can see you. Why not surprise Mom with a new reflective jacket in her favorite colour? Running Room has a great selection of running reflective jackets in a variety of hues.
2. A sparkle running skirt
Why not? Everyone needs a good running skirt in a fun pattern. Check out this selection at Etsy. This skirt is from RockCitySkirts, but there are other varieties including tutus and costume ideas for running the Disney Princess Half (or any women’s race)
3. Athletic Sweater
Usually the running type like good quality athletic sweaters – LuLuLemon is always a sure bet. One brand that I am a fan of is Albion Fit. I have a Albion Fit Signature Hoodie and love it. It is comfy, lightweight and looks great.
4. Basket full of Running Goodies
Grab a nice basket, or even a new sports bag and fill it with everything a runner needs: headbands, athletic socks, GU gels, Compression socks, tech shirts – whatever! You can easily fill a nice bag/basket with items found at Running Room, MEC, or any other sports store.
- Sweaty Bands Headband
- Pro Compression Socks
- Nuun Hydration Tablets
- Gu Gels
- Running Room Socks
5. Time for a long run
A simple, affordable solution to a Mother’s Day for your running Mom – a chance to go on a long run at any location nearby, uninterrupted at any time of the day. Allow Mom to go whenever she feels like it essentially, no questions asked. When Mom returns, have her favorite post-run meal on hand with a cool, crisp glass of water.
Do you have any suggestions to add?
I will be running the Day Before Mother’s Day race in Ottawa on Saturday – let me know if you will be racing as well. So far I know a number of Moms who will be running the 5K race!
