But maybe you’re looking for something a little different this year. Maybe you’re looking to help your mother improve her health, either because she’s on a major fitness kick or because of a recent medical scare. Either way, you can’t go wrong with many of the gift ideas you can find here.
1. Fitness tracker
Some of the coolest and most unique portable technology to emerge in recent years has been designed specifically to make us healthier people. Of these unique, emergent technologies, the one catching the most attention of them all maybe the fitness tracker.
Fitness trackers, like most electronic devices, come in a range of prices and capabilities. Generally speaking, though, most are able to track the length of a workout and the number of steps you take each day and provide estimates on the number of calories you’re burning. More advanced devices can help track sleep, giving you some insight on another important health matters. For all these reasons, a fitness tracker could be a fantastic gift for mom this Mother’s Day.
