What I love best about this model is that it has a slim design and you can exchange the bands for different colors or even a fancy one for when you dress up. PRICE: $119.95 BUY IT NOW

A kitchen without a high-speed blender is not a kitchen! Vitamix is a brand that I use and trust. I waited years because I thought they were too expensive but when I received this for a birthday gift a few years ago I can’t believe I ever lived without it. It’s amazing what Mom can do – make shakes, soup, ice cream, chop, blend, mix, make peanut butters, flours, etc. The hardest decision is deciding which color to buy. PRICE: new $399.99 or refurbished $279.00 BUY NOW
If Mom already works out then she needs a way to track her heart rate. If she doesn’t workout but wants to it may be a motivating tool to get her moving. I highly recommend heart rate monitors so that my clients know if they are working in their target heart range for optimal results and also to make sure they are not working too hard. Of all the monitors on the market this model is by far the most reliable and functional for the price. It gives calories burned, target heart rate and a soft warning sound if you fall above or below your zone. The polar FT 4 comes in several color options but the price points change with each one by quite a lot so check out the green or pink ones first. PRICE : $76.51 BUY NOW
