Moms are busy people – often accomplishing more in a day that seems humanly possible.

For the Super Mom in your life who’s always on the go, celebrate her tireless energy and positive attitude with these gifts for Mother’s Day.


Gifts for Moms on the Go

For the mom who’d rather go for a run than have breakfast in bed, give her new workout gear that she can wear straight from the gym to a brunch date with the whole family. The Sing, Floss, Travel Jacket and Wunder Under Crop are simultaneously chic and comfy.

For the mom who loves to embark on local adventures with the kids, give her this posh and practical diaper bag from Timi & Leslie. For the mom who’s craving a farther-flung getaway, this lightweight, inflatable GoCrib literally fits in a backpack, making it easy to create a safe play or sleep space anywhere you go… the beach, the park, a music festival, a hotel room. If you can afford to splurge, plan a vacation to go with it. If times are tight, just throw a blanket on the floor and set up a picnic in your living room. You can transport her to another place with good food and conversation.

For the new mom who’d love something sentimental this year, design a custom necklace for her from Satya Jewelry, where the pieces are inspired by yoga and the designers’ international journeys. A portion of all sales is donated to help children around the world, and you can make your necklace extra special by adding your child’s birthstone. For the mom who wants to look her best even when she’s running around with the kids, these modern stud earrings from Steven Alan are simple and easy to wear.

For the mom who needs a break, help her relax with a SpaFinder gift card. Even the busiest mom will slow down for a massage–or a bubble bath. Especially if you clean the tub first.
