Active Multi-Sports Support is recommended for tennis, squash, dance, and triathlon

Replacing that washed-a-thousand-times knackered old sports bra with a spangly new Shock Absorber will put a smile on any fit mum’s face. The new spring/summer 16 range comes in fabulous colours and functions as well as always. We like the Active Multi-Sports Support, which is recommended for tennis, squash, dance, triathlon etc. 32-38 B/C cup and 30-40 D/HH.

Amber Rose Hair Cleanser:

£24.50 on www.tabithajameskraan.com

tjk organic hair cleanser amber rose, mother's day gifts, by healthista

This product from organic hairdresser Tabitha James Kraan is called a cleanser rather than a shampoo for a reason. It contains no chemical detergents but rebalances the scalp and leaves hair soft and clean using a divine-smelling combo of organic oils, including argan oil and coconut oil, and essential oils, such as rose and chamomile. A luxurious treat.

We love this bright pop of colour in the new shades from bkr – fabulous water bottles made from glass, so no plasticky taste to your water, no chemical nasties and great for the environment. They’re covered with a silicone case to prevent smashing. They come in 500ml (and from later in March, the new 250ml Teeny bkr arrives in stores – too late for Mother’s Day but not too late to gift yourself!).

Lumie on grey background, mother's day gifts, by healthista

Like all Lumie clocks, it wakes you up slowly and gently with a light that gets progressively brighter (it also has an alarm function just in case!), but this version also has two aromatherapy chambers so that you can drift into a deep sleep to the soothing scent of an essential oil like lavender and wake up to an energising scent, such as peppermint.

For the latté-loving mum, this is functional fitness gear mixed with a dash of animal print – she couldn’t ask for a better from-gym-to-brunch outfit. The cropped leggings are flattering and have a nice wide waistband and cooling mesh panels, while the hoodie is the perfect thing to pull over a vest to take the chill off a morning run, with its deep hood and long thumbholed sleeves.

For swimmer mum, this newly launched watch will count laps in the pool, allowing her to just enjoy the relaxing, meditational qualities of swimming. The real joy of it, though, is the open-water function, so she’ll know how far and fast she’s swum in a lake, reservoir or the sea – perfect for wild swimming fans or triathletes in training.

Alright, we know we said forget chocolates for Mother’s Day, but this is indulgent chocolate with some nutritional goodies thrown in. Try the Date & Himalayan Pink Salt in the milk chocolate range or the Maca, Vanilla & Cacao Nibs in the dark chocolate range. Totally scrumptious.
