Fit Gifts Tip: Get personal
How many other fit moms at her barre class will have personalized leggings? And when the other women ask her where she got them, she’ll beam with pride that you gave them to her. The obvious thing would be to get her name on the leggings, but you could also get her personal mantra. We’re obsessed because they’re made by Toronto-based designer Chuck Beatty.

Fit Gifts Tip: Go beyond the functional
When buying a gift a fit mom can use, you don’t want to venture in a territory where something is too functional. She still likes beautiful things. We love the proud peacock feather design on this water bottle. Bonus: This double-walled stainless steel bottle is non-toxic, BPA-free and keeps contents cold for 24 hours or hot for 12 hours.

Fit Gifts Tip: When in doubt, always go with Lululemon
You cannot go wrong with Lululemon. It’s the diamonds of fitness gifts. While the fit mom in your life might think nothing about getting a pair of Lulu leggings for herself, we think she deserves to try the sports bras. This seamless-fit, padded bra isn’t just comfortable, but the back closure makes it a snap to take on and off.
