If she doesn’t already have one, this is a must have. This sports armband keeps your phone safe and secure so you can listen to workout music without the hassle.
Portion control is extremely important to maintaining a healthy lifestyle, but is extremely difficult to get right — especially when you’re time poor! This handy little tool helps you get your serving sizes right every time.
A good set of headphones is an essential tool in any fitness junkie’s arsenal. If she doesn’t have a decent set, she needs them.
Detox water is not only good for you but it tastes amazing! This bottle helps you create beautifully refreshing detox water in much less time.
This is a great way to keep your phone handy without constantly dropping it. Seriously, it’s a life saver. Or at least a phone saver.
Yep. A steamer. Because who has time to use and clean every pot and pan in the kitchen in an effort to cook a healthy meal? The three tiers allow you to cook every element of a health-conscious meal with the same appliance AND at the same time. Healthy meal + minimal washing up = happy mum.
The Jawbone tracks, steps, calories burned, food and drink intake and your quality of sleep. There are a bunch of cool colours to choose from and each comes with a clip for easy wear.
Because, let’s face it — every active person drops their phone on a semi-regular basis. Even your mum.
The infomercials are right – you can make anything from soup to smoothies with the Magic Bullet. This device is the biggest time saver and perfect for an active mum on the run.
A treadmill minute no longer has to be the longest minute of your life – this nifty little gadget that turns cardio equipment into a lovely distracting game. Clip the devices onto the handles cross trainer, elliptical or treadmill — these will become the controllers of the game. Then simply sync to your iPad. Best idea ever.
If you’re thinking to buy her a fitness tracker, this is a great option. This device tracks steps taken, calories burned, hours of sleep and your quality of sleep and then syncs at that info to your phone.
If your mum already has a Fitbit, this is great companion piece. This set of scales syncs the data it records to your phone, just like the Fitbit fitness tracker.
This is a fantastic option for anyone in the market for a smartwatch. It acts as a fitness tracker, it’s water resistant and it shows your phone notifications. It’s also one of most attractive smartwatches on the market at the moment, so it’s perfect for an active mum with a sense of style.
This is a lovely, little, luxe item that is great for any fitness conscious mum that values style. It is essentially a case for a Fitbit Flex — turning a fitness tracker into a designer bangle.
Does not come with a Fitbit Flex. It’s just the case.
Is your mum active and always on the run — maybe sometimes she doesn’t have time to even look at her phone? Well then this is a great gift idea. While this may look like a simple, on-trend cocktail ring, it is actually a device that discreetly vibrates and notifies you when your phone receives a call, text, email and more.
We all know how good Beats By Dre are. We also know how important a decent set of headphones is to a proper workout. This sleek and wireless set of headphones is a great gift idea for anyone that wants to spoil their mumma.
Soups are some of the healthiest foods you can eat. Unfortunately, they can take a few hours to make — which is why any health conscious mum will love this soup maker. It can transform your vegetables and stock into delicious soup in a matter of minutes. But actually, these are so awesome.
If you want to really spoil her then the Moto 360 is a great gift. In my opinion, this is the most stylish smartwatch available at the moment. It’s an android device and come equipped with OK Google, so it responds to your voice and actively learns so it can efficiently present you with relevant information.
Apart from being a generally great phone, Android devices such as the Moto X allow you to use Google Fit – a whole platform dedicated to health and wellbeing! It’s quite easy to use too, so even if your mum isn’t exactly a tech buff, she’ll have no problem.
If you really want to splurge on your mum, you can never go wrong with an iPhone 6. And an iPhone means you have access to Apple Health. This app pulls in data from your phone sensors and third party devices to help you monitor and track your fitness. It’s extremely comprehensive – it even has an area to store all pertinent medical information.
