Best fitness gifts
Brooks Adrenaline GTS 22
4.5-star average rating from more than 8,000 reviews on Amazon
If your mom loves to take long walks or jogs through the park, you can’t go wrong with an extra pair of quality sneakers. Listed as one of the best women’s walking shoes by the experts we spoke to in one of our previous guides, the Brooks Adrenaline GTS 22 uses a GuideRail system that balances the foot back into position by providing passive stability, so there’s less risk for injury, says podiatrist Olga Shvets. This sneaker also has a good heel counter, which gives the shoe longevity, she says.

4.2-star average rating from more than 2,500 reviews on Amazon
For moms who want a sleek and comfortable listening experience while they work out, these wireless earbuds from Jabra provide great quality sound for less than $100.

Cushionaire Cork Footbed Sandal
4.5-star rating from over 66,000 reviews on Amazon
If a long walk is your mom’s preferred method of exercise, this sandal is highly rated due to its comfort and traction. Its sole is made of ethylene vinyl acetate, or EVA, which is a shock-absorbent material that molds to your foot and can withstand extreme temperatures and pressure, according to the podiatrists we spoke to in our guide on best women’s walking shoes. Its insoles are made of 100% genuine suede and the straps are also adjustable to create a perfect fit.
