We scoured the internet to answer that very question and found 11 perfect gifts for the mom who appreciates healthy food and fun lifestyle gadgets.
1. Vitamix 5200: There’s no limit to what this machine can do. It will revolutionize your mother’s life! My grandmother has one and would never go a day without it. From smoothies to the perfect sauce, the Vitamix handles any and all kitchen tasks.
2. Pong Cell Phone Cover: We first introduced you to Pong cell phone covers about two months ago, and we remain just as enthusiastic about them today. Their patented technology (available for almost all cell phone models) deflects dangerous cell phone radiation.
4. Takeya BPA-Free Travel Bottles: The entire Takeya line of products is chic and durable. All items are BPA-free and made with the highest quality glass materials protected with a stylish silicon sleeve.
5. Mrs. Meyer’s Soy Candle: All the pleasure of a scented candle, none of the toxins that are released from non-organic, traditional store bought candles.
7. Aerobie 80R08 AeroPress Coffee and Espresso Maker: This modern twist on the french press will offers up the best cup of joe you can make.
8. New York Naturals Kale Chips: New York Magazine said these chips are like, “Doritos for health nuts: raw, vegan, delectably crispy wafers, made from kale leaves laboriously massaged with a cheesy-tasting coating of pulverized cashews, cayenne, red peppers, and lemon juice, and air-dried at 115 degrees for up to fifteen hours.” We agree.
9. One Trip Grip: We all do it. We carry as many bags as possible, even if it hurts a little and causes anxiety. This fun gadget will make carrying 4-8 bags anxiety free.
10. Kindle Fire: Reading and browsing. What more could Mom want?!
11. Organic Blended Heirloom Tomato Sauces: Imagine the finest pasta sauce you’ve ever had and take it up 10 notches. These sauces are made with organic heirloom tomatoes and seasoned to perfection.
