I have been polling the women in my classes and the most common responses are 'help' and 'rest'. Here are a few ideas:
Healthy Food Made Easy
More time than money: homemade freezer meals, pre-portioned nuts with dried fruit, container full of fresh cut veggies and some yummy dip.
More money than time: Gift certificate to healthy meal delivery service like Licious Living, an in-home meal prep service like Nourish Mom or a meal prep storefront like Supper Central
Safe & Loving Childcare
More time than money: Make a sincere offer to babysit. Have your calendar handy.
More money than time: Gift certificate for a babysitter connection service like Lullaby League or a nanny service like Nannies on Call
A Helping Hand
More time than money: Ask them for a list of errands and get them done. Wash and vacuum their car. Offer to clean their kitchen.
More money than time: Gift certificate for a concierge service like Urban Rush or Modern Life Management or a house cleaning service.
The Gift of Fitness
Fit 4 Two gift certificates are a great way to support new moms. Our classes are safe, effective, functional and fun. They are also a great place to connect with other moms. Contact your local Fit 4 Two franchisee to purchase.
From the Heart
Write the mom in your life a letter. Tell her what you appreciate, admire, like and love about her. Be specific. Make sure she knows you think she is an amazing mother.
