If you are fortunate to have a mama, a kind and generous stepmother, or a friend or neighbor you love and adore like a mom, you will most likely want to spoil her with a special treat or favor this Mother’s Day. Thankfully, Valentine’s Day chocolates are no longer gracing the shelves this month, so you can steer clear of tempting your mom with diet sabotaging junk food. To add to the splendor of giving, you can even find something to give that gives back to you in a healthy and satisfying kind of way.
The following are five things you can give, or do, that will not only be well received by your “mom,” they will also healthfully benefit you in return.
Mow the lawn
However dull and boring this Mother’s Day gift idea may sound, a fresh cut yard is food for the soul. Your mom may be spending all of her waking hours planting flowers and preparing the garden, so having help with the lawn will be much appreciated. And to complete the good deed, you will get a refreshing workout in return, and it will leave you both feeling satisfied and happy.
Wash the windows
I know what you are thinking. You think this blogger is telling you to do all of the housework for your mother. Yes and no. Window washing isn’t something that goes unnoticed, and the joys of looking out through clean windows will prevail long after Mother’s Day has past. And yes, your benefit is a workout for your upper body and balance. What could be better than that?

This Sunday is Mother’s Day so, this year, don’t get caught waiting until the last minute to only buy your mom some half-dead flowers from the drug store.
Candy and jewelry are common gift ideas, but chocolate will only add inches to your mom’s waist, and, with the skyrocketing price in gold, who can afford jewelry? Show Mom how much you love her and how much you care by getting her a gift that will keep her healthy and happy.
Check out these gift ideas that will put Mom on the right track to living an active lifestyle.
Shape-ups ($100): This gift is perfect for the mom who hates, or doesn’t have time, to go to the gym. These tennis shoes, with an elevated sole, promise to tone your muscles by simply walking. Just a 20-minute walk will have her calves tingling from all the toning.
So, it’s Mother’s Day, but you just don’t want to fight the crowds at your favorite local restaurant. If you prefer something a little more low-key on this day, there’s nothing wrong with staying home with the family, and having a quiet get-together with your loved ones over a delicious and healthy meal.
