With just days before our big day, the search is on for what us women will want. Sure the tried and true are nice – and most definitely appreciated. Roses are really nice, but they are gone all-too-quickly. Chocolate is certainly a girl’s best friend, but it sticks around too long – and often in unwanted places, like our hips. So this year, how about something different? Don’t just give peace a chance; make it happen with these gifts for M”om” this Mother’s Day.
Manduka – purveyor of premium luxury yoga gear – has just what the doctor would order to send mom straight to nirvana. Their PROlite Yoga Mat is so durable that it’s backed with a lifetime guarantee. What does that mean to you? Experienced yogis will be grateful for the comfort and support they feel while flowing through sun salutations. The bliss of the marvelous mat continues when it bounces back from being trampled on by your little wild child. Personally, my kids ran, rolled and did their own down dogs on mine; they even dropped bits of juice on it which wiped away without a worry. The non-stick surface is a must for moms on the mat and most won’t be unhappy to hear that it’s also a zero-waste, sustainable mat.
Most of us are either juggling kids, their bags or other kid-paraphernalia and would opt to not have to try to control an mat that unrolls easily … which is why the Mat Sling, also by Manduka, is the ideal accessory. Velcro helps the straps adjust to fit women of all sizes; shoulder padding provides the comfort we enjoy. Not only does this go on and off in a jiffy, but it also allows the odors to escape. Lets be honest – most of us are not smelling so sweet after leaving a class, and neither are our mats, which is why this is a great alternative to a mat bag. I also love the attachable pouch and water bottle which allow us to truly be hands-free.
