We'll help you figure out a great gift to make Mom feel loved on Sunday!

Get access to everything we publish when you sign up for Outside+.


Still stumped on what to get for the running mama in your life? We’ve got some ideas. We can’t guarantee they will arrive before Sunday, but at least you can say an awesome present is on its way.

Race Bling

What runner girl doesn’t love a getting jewelry? Running necklaces can celebrate a race, commemorate a new PR, or keep a mantra close to your heart. We love Erica Sara’s personalized pieces. The Marathon Mom necklace is perfect for a recently completed 26.2, but there any many jewelry options for all distances. Ericasaradesigns.com

State Pride

What’s better than coffee or tea after a morning run? Drinking it out of a mug that showcases your running state pride. Every state, plus Washington D.C., is available. If your mom would rather have a celebratory drink, running state pride beer and wine glasses are also available. goneforarun.com

Cool Recovery

Tell mom to put her feet up and ice after her Mother’s Day long run. 110% Compression Socks have built in ice packs to make recovery easy. She’ll be ready to tackle her next run. 110playharder.com

Starting Line

One thing any runner loves receiving as a gift- race entry! Pick a race you can do with the running mom in your life or sign her up for that goal race she’s been thinking about. If she loves to race, a Rock n’ Roll Marathon Series Tour Pass is perfect. You can choose a 3, 6, or global race pack. rocknroll.competitor.com

Support a Cause

Oiselle has partnered with Every Mother Counts to increase education and support for maternal mortality reduction globally. 40% of the proceeds from their Every Mother Counts apparel goes to the charity. oiselle.com

On The Go

If you’re looking to splurge on mom, a GPS watch is always a useful and exciting gift to receive. The Garmin 15 tracks pace, distance, saves 7 activities, and automatically uploads to a computer. Soon she will be sharing her run splits on Facebook! Garmin.com

Pretty and Witty

We love Run Pretty Far’s clever tees. They make a statement while running and look great afterward. Grab this one for those days when going for a run feels essential. runprettyfar.com

Treat Yo’ Mom!

Need more ideas? Nothing is better than a gift certificate to a running store because no matter how much gear we have, you can always use more. Book a massage for a tired runner. Have a great post-race or long run breakfast waiting on Sunday morning. Offer to watch kids so a mom friend can focus on her race. Or just grab your own shoes and join your mom on a run. Anything that makes your running mom, sister, grandma, significant other, or friend feel pampered and loved is perfect.
