Every Mother’s Day is the chance to celebrate all the mothers in our lives and show them just how much we appreciate all they do for us.  Finding the perfect gift to show Mom how much we care can sometimes be tough. At Integrative Nutrition, we have a few ideas about how to express the love and appreciation we have for all the wonderful mothers we hold so dear.

Here are a few ideas that will keep Mom healthy and happy long after Mother’s Day is gone.

A Garden in a Box – Integrative Nutrition Graduate Laura Baldwin, founded Garden in the Koop to share her passion for fresh, organic produce with everyone. Laura sells gardens in recycled egg cartons that are easy to maintain and don’t take up too much space The cartons are available in a wide variety of seedlings; whether your mom likes salads or sunflowers, she is bound to find one that she loves.

Yoga Classes – Yoga is great for the mind, body and spirit, and is a wonderful activity to rejuvenate when you’ve been working hard.  If you have a mom that is always on the go, giving her a package of yoga classes will give her the opportunity to take time for herself. 

A Mother/Daughter Makeover – Mother/Daughter health coaching duo and Integrative Nutrition Health Coaches Sheri Oppenheimer and Debbie Zimmerman have put together a Mother’s Day contest to give away a $5,000 Mother’s Day Makeover for one lucky mother and daughter as part of their 100 Women Project.
