Mother’s Day Gift Guide 2018 – Halifax Edition
In my opinion, every should be Mother’s Day, but since we can’t always get what we want, I’ll have to settle for just the one day! Now is a great time to shower the lovely moms in your life with even more affection and appreciation. To help you in your quest to find the perfect thing, and support local small businesses, we put together some ideas based on a few mom personalities. We hope you enjoy!
Oh Yoga Cards
Trying to balance kids, relationships, friends, health, and work is not for the faint of heart. Yoga is a great way to preserve sanity and stay toned at the same time. So, here are a few ideas to help you in your quest for the perfect Mother's Day yoga gift.
First, there's Oh Yoga Cards, a nifty package of 20 Yoga Pose Cards that let you and your mom get your yoga on in the comfort of your own home. Mix and match these cards to create dozens of unique sequences and flows at home!
For some yoga enthusiasts, the yoga mat can be an extension of their personality, which is why these yoga mats, designed by local artist Kristen Herrington are already a hit! If this is your mom already does yoga, or is thinking about trying it, this yoga mat will make her the envy of her yoga class. Or, if your mom prefers to channel her inner yogi while running errands or lounging, she might also love these yoga leggings!
Mighty Oak Essentials
Now that you've got the perfect yoga mat, you'll need to keep things smelling great. To keep things smelling fresh, you can spritz it with a few pumps of Mighty Oak Essentials Yoga Mat Spray, available at Moksha Yoga Halifax. Now that she'll have the gear, why not actually give a yoga class a try. Starting on May 15th you can get your mom a 3-month pass for just $200. Woot woot!
