Which stage of the holiday season are you in? In case it’s the “How did this happen?” phase (it’s cool; I am, too), we have a few gift ideas for you. Because we know how crazy this time of year can be.
Behold the official Fit Bottomed Mamas gift guide! It’s got seven suggestions for gifts that pretty much anybody in your tribe (mom friends, mom, yoga teacher, kids’ teacher, neighbor, etc.) will dig.
(Note: There are some affiliate links below, meaning that although the price stays the same on what you buy, we get a small bit to help keep the sites moving and grooving for you! And we totes thank you for your support.)
Darling You Look Radishing Mug
You know how much we all need coffee. And this adorable little mug from PaperFinch ($16) not only holds the java, but it also gives a clever little compliment. Awesome for coffee — and veggie — lovers. Dishwasher- and microwave-safe, it’s 100 percent ceramic and comes in an 11-ounce or 15-ounce mug. (Obviously, we prefer the 15-ounce.)
Strong is the New Pretty Calendar
We think 2018 should be the year of the girl being THEMSELVES, and this calendar ($14.99) fully embraces that by capturing photos of girls ages 5 to 18 in all their creative, fierce, loud and silly glory. From dancers to fencers to musicians to gardeners to student body presidents and soccer players, this inspirational calendar is a great gift for daughters, nieces, sisters, coaches, mentors, teachers and friends.
Burley Minnow Child Trailer
Know a mom who loves to bike? This new child trailer is the perfect gift for adventurous, cycling parents looking to take their kiddo along for the ride. The Minnow ($269) is an entry-level child bike trailer featuring a five-point harness system, full aluminum roll cage and comfortable hammock style seating.
You know what’s the worst? Running out of phone battery. Which is exactly why everyone in your mom tribe will love this sleek and pretty but also hella helpful Futura X wireless charging pad ($49.99). Compact and easy to use, you simply connect it to a power source, place your Qi-enabled device on the charging pad and start charging it wirelessly. Give the gift of high-speed, hassle-free wireless charging.
Zenergy “Aroma” Bluetooth Speaker with Lighting
How pretty are these? Designed to create a calming environment with the combination of light, sound and aromatherapy (through the use of essential oils with no water needed), the iZABT50 ($99.99) also wirelessly streams audio from Bluetooth-enabled devices, answers calls with an integrated speakerphone, and has a remote control so that you can change settings from across the room. A total zen gift!
Tree of Life Yoga Mat
We’ve down dogged on a lot of yoga mats, but The Tree of Life mat ($21.49) not only feels great and doesn’t slip, but its beautiful design represents something that all moms and women need these days: strength from being rooted deeply. This 3/16-inch yoga mat is also coated for odor- and moisture-resistance so it works well for all styles, from basic stretching to hot yoga, and suits yogis of all experience levels. Eco-friendly and non-toxic, too!
You probably hear “playmat” and think “kid’s gift,” but the LilyPad² Playmat ($240) is truly great for the whole fam and makes for a great women tribe gift. Non-toxic, organic and breathable, each mat is made from 75 recycled bottles and has more than 21 feet of surface space. It also comes with a handy travel bag, so it’s easy to take to the concert in the park or for a picnic. Oh, and it’s liquid and stain-resistant and machine washable. In such fun colors, too!
