8 Nike Gift Ideas for Mother's Day

If you're wondering what to get your mum (or mother figure) this Mother's Day, check out this guide to find something special. You know her best—surprise her with something she might not buy for herself, add a personal touch like a handwritten note or carve out some quality time to complete the day.

1. For mums looking for leggings to live in: Nike leggings

Whether mum is a yoga fan or simply enjoys the comfort of leggings, she can probably never have too many pairs. The Nike Zenvy Collection features our buttery-soft InfinaSoft fabric built for yoga and beyond, while the Universa is super smooth and offers medium support. If she's looking for a barely there feel with all-day wearability at a great price, check out Nike One leggings.

2. For mums embracing the Y2K trend: retro running shoes

For mums looking to take retro into the future, check out Nike's retro running footwear. The Nike Vomero 5, Nike V2K and Nike P-6000 are a few options that blend style, comfort and a retro-future aesthetic into a look that lasts.

3. For mums looking to lounge: Nike Phoenix Fleece

To help your mum relax and recover after a long day at work, a tough workout or simply just because, hook her up with some cosy, soft Nike Sportswear Club Fleece apparel. This loungewear is comfortable and trendy thanks to its exaggerated details. It's also available in extended sizes.

4. For mums who love to run: Nike running jackets

A little inclement weather shouldn't stop mum from getting out there. If your mum loves to run, treat her to a Nike running jacket to keep her warm, dry and protected from the elements, so she can run any time she wants. If she likes running outside in the morning or in the evening, look for a style made with reflective design features to make her visible in her surroundings.

5. For mums on their feet all day: Nike slides

If your mum spends a lot of time on her feet, consider a pair of Nike's soft foam slides. They're designed to offer lightweight cushioning—perfect for a house shoe—but they're also durable enough to be worn outside for a casual, athletic look. What's more, surprise her with a pedicure where slides can come in handy. If a walking shoe is more mum's speed, you can choose from Nike's versatile collection.

6. For mums who love the gym: home workout equipment

If the gym is your mum's happy place, help her recreate some of that joy at home. Gift her a versatile piece of workout equipment, like a medicine ball or resistance band. If she already has all of her favourite gym equipment at home, consider recovery tools (like a foam roller) to help her relieve soreness after a particularly hard workout and as prep to crush the next one on the books.

7. For on-the-go mums: Nike tote bag

If your mum carries her life around in her bag, she may be overdue a new tote bag. Nike's options come in lots of different sizes and colours to meet her needs. For example, the Nike One Luxe Bag has an expandable design and can carry a laptop, yoga mat, accessories and smaller packable totes for easy organisation.

8. For environmentally conscious mums: apparel made from sustainable materials

For mums who keep sustainability in mind, you might want to think about a gift that's been upcycled or made from sustainable materials. Nike has all kinds of apparel options made with at least 50 percent recycled materials, so you can find a gift that matches mum's values.

9. For gift givers on a budget: accessories for £40 and under

Trying to be cost conscious but still want to offer mum a token of appreciation? Try a yoga mat or water bottle if your mum is more active. Or maybe mum is in the market for a new bag or backpack. And, if all else fails, you can never go wrong with new socks.
