With Mother’s Day coming up soon, it’s time to make sure you have gifts for all the moms in your life. What’s the perfect gift for a mom who runs? I’m going to share a few ideas! Use this list to find the perfect Mother’s Day gift ideas for runners or to share with someone as your wish list.
Mother’s Day Gift Ideas for Runners
If you haven’t tried a Koala Clip yet, you’re missing out! I’ve been using mine for about 3 years now and I love it. You can use it to carry your phone, key, and other small items on the run. It slides into the back of your sports bra or could also be worn on the side of tights or shorts. You can save 10% with the code LISAS10. Check out my review of Koala Clip here.
FRÉ Anti-aging products
Another must-have for moms who run is FRÉ skincare products. Some of my favorite products include Brighten Me, Revive Me, Recover Me and Protect Me, which all happen to be anti-aging products. Today through Friday (4/30/21) you can save 40% on anti aging solutions plus 10% more off with the code MILEBYMILEBLOG. Perfect for a Mother’s Day Gift!
Brooks Run Bra
Nope, these aren’t your standard “sports bras”. They are called “run bras” because they are designed specifically for running! The two new styles are called “Dare” and “Drive” and there are several different styles/cuts of each. My favorite is the Drive 3 Pocket Run Bra. I like that it has alot of coverage and (of course) pockets!
Sarah Marie Design Studio Shirt
Sarah Marie Design Studio has so many fun designs for runners. I recently got a t-shirt that says “Run all the miles, drink all the wine”. I also love this “Mama needs a run” sweatshirt. Perfect for Mother’s Day, right?!
Coffee Mug for Mothers
Most moms run on coffee, right? So why not get them a cute mug that has to do with running! There are lots of options on Etsy, like this one that says “I’m a Mother and Marathon Runner…don’t underestimate me”.
Necklace for Mothers
What about a cute piece of jewelry for the running mom in your life? For my first Mother’s Day my husband and son got me a little necklace with a “G” (for Grayson) on it from Erica Sara. She has lots of running jewelry too! I might eventually add other charms to my necklace, like a running quote or “26.2”. (Note that the website says orders needed to be placed by 4/26 to be delivered for Mother’s Day. So if you don’t want your gift to be late maybe consider a gift certificate instead!)
A Running Book
I don’t have much time to read, but when I do I pretty much exclusively read books about running. Books make a great Mother’s Day gift for runners! I shared a post with books to help you run faster. I also recently started reading Win At All Costs and so far it’s really good. Wendy wrote a review about it last fall.
A Run Coach or Training Plan as a Mother’s Day Gift
Now that races are starting to happen again, it’s a great time to start working with a run coach. Coaching services or a training plan make a great Mother’s Day gift. This is a very individual decision, so don’t go signing up for coaching without talking it over with the person you are getting it for. There are lots of options from monthly training plans, to group coaching, to individualized coaching. There are many coaches that post in this link-up so be sure to check them out! You can learn about my coaching services here.
The Gift of Time for Mother’s Day
When all else fails, moms can always use the gift of time! Offer to watch their kids while they go grab a cup of coffee, or drink a glass of wine, or just sit in silence and do nothing. Especially this year, time is invaluable!
