She says a call from you is enough this Mother’s Day. And she’s right (Moms usually are); however, this list of items – from the traditional to the trending – will help you find the perfect gift to give on Sunday, May 12.
You would never know that these are medical bracelets. Light, beautiful and luxurious, they look like they belong in the front window of an expensive boutique. The bracelets are available in an array of fine metals, from sterling silver ($135) to solid yellow gold ($1,200). Learn more here.
Add some style to Mom’s diabetes routine with a Myabetic bag. Sleekly designed to hold what’s needed to manage diabetes, this gift will help her control her health — and look. Wallets, compact wallets and compact cases are available in a variety of colors and styles. Buy it here.
Cliché? Yes. However, chocolate is a go-to gift for nearly any occasion with good reason. Make sure Mom indulges this year with this sugar-free option, made with stevia extract. Buy it here.
Why not give the gift of comfort this Mother’s Day? These slippers provide a closed heel, a gel insert for comfort and a toe box that lessens the chances of stubbed toes. Sturdy and stylish, this gift will protect feet from injury and prevent falls. Buy it here.
Free from calories and carbs, this instant tea doesn’t need steeping. It’s packaged in “sticks,” making it easy to enjoy anytime, anywhere. Research shows tea may help improve insulin sensitivity, making it a healthful and delicious gift choice. Buy it here.
For this simple Mother’s Day gift idea, all that’s needed is a handful of ingredients and some time. These diabetic-friendly cookies are made with almond extract, unsweetened orange juice and Sweet ‘N Low low-fat cake mix. Get the recipe here.
Help her reach that recommended 10,000-step daily milestone with a Fitbit. Keeping track of daily activity is useful when monitoring lifestyle habits that help manage diabetes. This is a good Mother’s Day pick for those looking to step up their exercise routine. Buy it here.
This phone app takes the guesswork out of managing diabetes by helping users understand how food and exercise affect blood sugar levels. It’s user-friendly and can synch with some glucose monitors. MySugr is free with in-app purchases and available for iPhone and Android. Learn more here.
These socks are made from a combination of bamboo and elastane — materials that wick away moisture, are wrinkle-resistant and are free from seams. They’re comfy, too, with extra cushioning and a non-binding top that stays up. Buy them here.
This fast-absorbing cream can be used on your face and your body to replenish the skin’s protective barrier. Have Mom looking and feeling her best with this non-comedogenic, oil- and fragrance-free, and hypoallergenic gift. Buy it here.
