The Best Mother’s Day Gift Ideas For 2024

Stuck on inspiration for this year’s Mother’s Day gift? Our ultimate gift guide is full of the best Mother’s Day gift ideas for 2024. Whether she loves the beach, staying active or spending time at home with the kids, we have compiled our top picks for Mother’s Day gifts this year to get you inspired to shop. After all, we’re founded by two Australian mothers....and who knows what mums want better than other mums!

For The Expecting Mum

If your mum is newly pregnant and expecting, she will be going through a lot of changes to her body in the coming months. Show your love and appreciation for her this Mother’s Day with soft, supportive and comfortable pregnancy leggings to keep her comfy throughout each trimester! A good pair of pregnancy leggings (like the Active Truth pregnancy tight) can make all the difference to keeping her supported by reducing pressure from the pregnancy so she can go about her day with ease. Or, if she lives in a warmer climate, a pair of pregnancy bike shorts can also provide the right levels of support and comfort whilst keeping her cool on those hotter days.

For The New Mum

Has your mum just blessed your family with the gift of life? Get her a gift she will truly appreciate and show your support this Mother’s Day with a pair of postnatal recovery tights. Whether she’s just out of the hospital or the due date is soon approaching, postnatal recovery tights can provide the right amount of compression for a smooth recovery. Importantly, they promote circulation to aid in healing, limit swelling and relive post-pregnancy aches or pains. The Active Truth postnatal recovery tights range has something to suit every new mother’s style and needs from full-length leggings to pocket leggings and 7/8 leggings. We promise she’ll be thanking you later! After another option? A stylish and supportive nursing sports bra is also a great option for new mothers. It provides extra functionality for feeding built into the bra that she can wear to work on the weekend or to the gym. Talk about versatility!

For The On-The-Go Mum

Is your mum always on-the-go? From running the kids to weekend sports to brunch with her friends or heading to the gym, mums lead busy and often chaotic lives. Whilst a bag is great to have on-hand, for the mum that’s always out running an errand, a pair of pocket leggings should be at the top of your Mother’s Day gift list! With a pair of pocket leggings she can stay hands-free and keep her keys, phone and other bits and bobs right in her legging pockets. This makes keeping track of her important items that little bit easier. At Active Truth, we have a whole range of pocket legging styles with flattering fits and sleek designs. From classic black to fun colours such as forest green, burgundy wine, beautiful blue and modern prints – you can always find the perfect leggings to suit your mum’s style.

For The Yogi Mum

Does your mum love meditation, yoga or pilates? If so, you might spot her sporting a sports bra to her classes to allow her to comfortably move between poses and positions. With low impact exercises like yoga, it is important to have a supportive sports bra that allows for movement between poses. Finding the right sports bra is often a challenging task, but Active Truth has taken the guesswork out of gifting and made it so much easier with their ‘Flow Sports Bra’. It is the perfect Mother’s Day gift idea that can work for a range of activities from yoga flows to pilates classes and walks.

For The Running Mum

Whether she’s part of a run club, loves to run with the pram, or have some alone time to smash out a new personal best at the park, running mums NEED the perfect pair of running leggings to get the job done! As running is such a high-impact sport, it requires the support and compression of performance leggings to make running as comfortable and easy as possible. Luckily, Active Truth have a variety of leggings and tights perfect for running with anti-chafe fabrics, pockets and breathable fabrics to help your mum run as best as she can! Plus, with such a wide range of colourways, prints and patterns, you can find the perfect pair of leggings for your mum to run in.

For The Coastal Mum

Lucky enough to live by the beach? Or does your mum just love a weekend beach trip? Our next gift idea is some stylish swimwear she can use for your next beach outing! Whether she loves a one-piece or a bikini, a nice pair of bathers can make for the perfect Mother’s Day gift. Active Truth have a curated collection of inclusive swimwear that extends up to a 3XL and designed to suit mums of all shapes and sizes!

For The Sporty Mum

For the mums who are always trying out a new sport or love wearing a classic sporty style, a good tennis dress or skort makes for the perfect Mother’s Day gift! Not only is it functional for a variety of activities, but the feminine silhouette and style mean it can easily be dressed up or down for any occasion. At Active Truth, we have a consciously curated collection of beautiful sports dresses and sports skirts that would suit this mum to a tee (see what we did there?).

For The Comfy Mum
