Mother's Day Gift Ideas
you know a Mom that deserves a special gift this year for Motherís Day? Iím
sure you know at least one, if not more. Sure, flowers can always brighten a
Momís day and a dinner out is always appreciated. But, doesnít she deserve
something more personal, something that wonít wilt and something that lasts
longer than an evening? This year give that special woman a gift that will
improve her well being.
talking about the gift of fitness. Improved fitness is a gift that is invaluable
to everyone. After all, what woman doesnít want to look better, have more
energy, and be healthier? Plus, all Moms need to take time for themselves, but
most are reluctant to schedule that ďmeĒ time. So, give them a gift that
will help encourage them to enjoy some alone time.
you give a woman the gift of fitness, you are helping her open a door to better
health (both physically and mentally). I canít think of a more thoughtful gift
that shows the recipient how much you care about their well being. By giving the
gift of fitness you are providing them with unlimited health benefits. And,
itís a gift that you can truly feel proud to give.
Of course, we all know that
exercise can help people stay slim and fit. But, do you also know about all the
other great benefits of exercising? Daily physical activity reduces stress and
can help you sleep better. Fitness has been linked to reducing the risk of some
diseases and to warding off depression. Researchers also believe that strength
training can help prevent osteoporosis. Not to mention that exercise also
improves self-esteem, increases stamina and ultimately helps you be able to do
continuous work for longer.
All Moms would find these
fitness benefits incredibly invaluable. If she is like most of us, sheís
probably even mentioned how she would like to drop a few pounds or just get in
better shape. In fact, experts say that about 62% of Americans are currently on
a diet. By giving the gift of fitness you are helping provide her with extra
motivation (which is one of the biggest obstacles in getting fit). She may be
more motivated to actually get fit because she doesnít want to feel guilty for
ignoring such a thoughtful gift (personal training gift certificates and gym
memberships are especially good for helping with motivation).
While fitness gifts are
incredibly valuable, they donít have to be expensive. Gifts can cost as little
as $5 or range into the $100s of dollars. Here are a few suggestions in the
various price ranges:
$15 - $35
something that supports health and wellness will be appreciated for years to
come and may even turn someone's life around.
gift of fitness will make her feel special Ė sheíll know that someone cared
enough to give her the opportunity to improve her health. And, giving a gift
that will help someone lead a healthier life is also one of the most rewarding
gifts you can give.
So why spend another
Motherís Day searching for the perfect gift only to end up with the same old
things? Surprise her this year and give the gift that comes from the heart and
truly keeps on giving throughout summer and beyond.
Want to enjoy the benefits of improved fitness for yourself? Thereís no need to wait for someone to give you the gift of fitness. Treat yourself to a special fitness gift Ė you deserve it!
