Mother's Day Gift's for Your Fit Mama

My mom really cashes in during the month of May.

Not only does she have Mother’s Day to look forward to, but her birthday is also the first week of May — double whammy.

I’m not complaining though. She deserves every bit of gratitude and gifts we bestow on her — after all, she is my fitspo.

Lucky for her, we have a similar taste in clothes, and many of the same hobbies (exercise, cooking, etc), so it’s easy for me to find things she will like.

If you’re looking for gifts for your fitness-enthusiast or food-loving mom, here are a few that I know she’ll love.

And be sure to stick around until the end of the post for an awesome giveaway!
