Mother’s Day Gifts For Active Moms

Mother’s Day is May 12, and we want to celebrate all the fitness moms out there! Moms who love to stay active and fit deserve a special kind of recognition, and what better way to show your appreciation than by gifting them something that complements their active lifestyle? Whether your mom is a yoga enthusiast, runner, a lifting junkie, or a cyclist, we’ve got you covered! From workout gear to recovery tools, we’ve curated a list of thoughtful and practical gift ideas that will make your mom’s day and help her stay on top of her fitness game.



For The Runner Mom 
  • Comfortable Leggings: A great pair of leggings, like our camo leggings, are great for outdoor runs or miles on the treadmill!   
  • Durable Running Shoes: There are many great running shoe options. Take your mom to a local running store where they can assess your mom’s stride and provide feedback on the perfect shoe based on foot shape and running type! 
  • Running Belt: A running belt is perfect way to carry small items like a phone, ID, and gels. Some even come with water bottle holders for long distance runs. There are many great options like this one from Lululemon that comes in a variety of fun colors.



For The Yoga Mom 
  • Travel Yoga Mat: A yogi can never have enough yoga mats! A lightweight travel mat is a great option for the on-the-go mom who wants to get in a quick session wherever she goes! 
  • Towel: Yoga can be hard work, and for the mom who enjoys a hot yoga session, a towel like our red VASA towel is perfect to throw in a workout bag.  
  • Yoga Blocks: For the beginner yogi, an exercise block can lend a hand and act as a bridge for more difficult poses while building strength and flexibility.



For The Lifting Mom   
  • Shaker Bottle: Every lifter needs a good shaker bottle for their protein! VASA offers an affordable option for just $8 that can be purchased in club or online. 
  • Protein Powder: Speaking of protein, VASA sells chocolate flavored Bucked Up protein, available in-club only. 
  • Foam Roller: Foam rolling is one of the best recovery tools to treat sore muscles and increase performance and flexibility.



For The Cycling Mom  
  • Handlebar Bag: A handlebar bag is the perfect gift for any cycling mom—think fanny pack that sits on the handlebars of a bike for easy access to anything she may need on a ride. It also prevents the dreaded sweaty back that backpacks can cause.  
  • A Lightweight Water Bottle: An easy-to-carry water bottle is essential for anyone going on long-distance rides. Here is a great option that keeps water chilled without the nasty plastic taste that can come with some water bottles.  
  • Roadside Repair Kit: A tire blowout is an inevitable yet annoying reality of going on long rides, especially on a road bike. It’s good to always be prepared with a roadside repair kit for when the unexpected pops up!
