Healthy gifts are the gifts that keep on giving! Check out these healthy gift ideas for mom that she is sure to love. From kitchen tools to healthy snacks, there is something for every mom on this list.
Oh, Mother’s Day. It’s a lovely holiday but trying to find the right gift for mom can sometimes feel daunting. That’s why I’ve put together this Mother’s Day Healthy Gift Guide. Is it just me or after so many years, does it begin to feel increasingly difficult to find mom a unique gift? Generic gifts such as candles can only be “recycled” so many times, am I right? Now healthy gifts on the other hand, are the gifts that keep on giving. These types of gifts can be more meaningful, especially for a close person in your life such as your mom. They say both “I love you” and “I care about you”. Check out these healthy gift ideas for mom that are unique, different, and can support her health and wellness.

This is my go-to mascara. It has good coverage, goes on nicely, and I can feel safe using it! Traditional cosmetic ingredients can contain harmful chemicals that can affect your health.

Trust me, mom will love it. Read my blog post Cosmetics: Why Natural is Best to learn more about toxins in beauty products.

For the Mom Who Spends All Her Time in the Kitchen
Upgrade mom’s old plastic measuring cups and spoons to this sleek, durable, stainless steel set. Stainless steel is a great alternative to plastic and lowers the risk of exposure to the toxins in plastic. These sets can be nested (stacked inside of each other) for easy storage anywhere in moms kitchen. Bonus, they are also dishwasher safe!
If mom doesn’t have a KitchenAid Stand Mixer yet, then this should be top on your list for her. They truly are a kitchen staple! I use mine for so many different healthy recipes. This particular model with the bowl lift is a great option for mom. She won’t have to lift the top up like in traditional models, which can be heavy. Gift this to mom along with some healthy recipes for her to try like my Lemon Poppy Seed Bars!
I am obsessed with hand blenders because of how easy they are to use for so many recipes. From soups to sauces to shakes, the options are endless. They are a great tool to have for healthy cooking. Clean up is a breeze with this model by KitchenAid. The blending arm can be conveniently removed for easy washing! Gift this hand blender to mom along with some healthy recipes ideas for her to try it with. I recommend my Vegan Potato Leek Soup recipe!
For the Mom With a Sweet Tooth
Dates are super trendy right now because they are naturally sweet and can be substituted for sugar in many recipes. This fun sampler pack by Wanna Date? comes with 4 different flavors: Cinnamon, Vanilla, Pumpkin Spice, and Chocolate. Yum! One of the great things about this spreads is that they are made with very few ingredients. In fact, the Vanilla, Chocolate, and Cinnamon have only 4 ingredients! All flavors are also nut-free, dairy-free, and gluten free. Mom can satisfy her sweet tooth without compromising her health!
If mom is a chocolate lover or has a sweet tooth, then this upscale Raaka Chocolate Gift Box is perfect for her. It comes with exotic and organic flavors like Cabernet Sauvignon and Bourbon Cask Aged. Plus, Raaka makes their chocolate from unroasted beans that have been sustainably sourced!
For the Mom On the Go
There is a big movement away from plastic straws in order to support the environment. Many restaurants and cafes don’t even use them anymore! There are many different varieties of reusable straws out there from silicone to stainless to glass. All of them are great options but silicone has the benefit of being super lightweight and travels well. That’s what really sets these Silicone Straws by Food52 apart. They come with carrying cases so mom can throw it in her purse and have it conveniently on hand whenever she needs.
These travel cups by Mepal have been thoughtfully designed to look not only super sleek but also be highly functional. Included with the cups is a fork that fits conveniently right inside. The interior cup acts as a colander for rinsing fruit or berries before placing them in the outer cup where they can dry. You just pop the lid on and go! These make a great gift for moms who travel often, moms with kids, or moms who are trying to eat healthy.
These water bottles by HidrateSpark are equipped with technology that connects to your phone, tracks your water intake, and lights up to remind you to drink more. It doesn’t get any easier than that. It also allows you to customize your profile so that it calculates that right amount of water you should be drinking based on things like your activity level, weather, and more.
For the Zen Mom
This tea set from Art of Tea is the perfect gift for the zen, tea loving mom! It comes with 4 different loose leaf tea varieties in fun and cute tins. Art of Tea is committed to providing high quality teas and sources from the top 2% of all teas produced in the world. Pair this gift set with teaware from Art of Tea such as a glass teapot, stainless steel tea measuring spoon, or tea travel tumbler. Help mom relax and unwind with this beautiful tea gift set.
Give the gift of relaxation and at-home massage with an acupressure mat! Mom can relieve stress, pain, and tension in the comfort of her own home. These mats by Pranamat are handmade and made with eco-friendly materials! Some other benefits of using an acupressure mat include improved sleep, more energy, and less headaches. This is the perfect gift for moms who don’t have the time or money to spend on getting regular massages.

- Ship gifts straight to her front door
- Have a Facetime or video call while she’s opening her gifts
