If you are lucky enough to have a runner mom, then you know how special they are. Not only did they raise us, care for us, and sacrifice for us, but they inspire us daily! Moms who run are (in my completely unbiased opinion;) the best kind. With Mother’s Day just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about some gift ideas for your running mom. My mom has taught some of the most important life lessons, and having just one day to show our appreciation is never enough.

Below is a list of some of the best, most creative Mother’s Day gift ideas for runners. Whether your mom is an intense competitor, long distance runner, or just runs to stay in shape – there is something here for you. Check out this Mother’s Day gift guide to spoil all the moms who run in your life.
The Best Mother’s Day Gift Ideas for Runners
Bib & Medal Displays
The perfect gift for runners! These medal and bib displays will give your runner mom a place to show off all of her bling from those races. She can keep her race bibs in the display as well, providing a really convenient place to store all those memories. If your mom has put in the work to complete one race or many, give her a place to show off her medals. These are two of my favorites:
If your mom already has a space for her bling, this Bib Folio is a great idea. This will give her a place to store those bibs that she doesn’t want to throw away, but still doesn’t know what to do with. I love these Bib Folios because they are a simple way to keep your bibs easily accessible, while keeping them organized and looking cute.
All women love jewelry, and no doubt your mother runner does too. Finding her a unique piece of jewelry like the ones below will help her celebrate her hobby. These earrings, necklaces, and bracelets are a great way to show off her hobby in style.
Most runners love writing in a training journal, and this cute running journal will be just what your mom needs to do so. Give her a space to record her miles and everything that comes with them. This running journal will keep her inspired and motivated to improve.
If your running mom loves to cook, then these two cookbooks couldn’t be more perfect for her. There’s nothing she’ll love more than combining two things she loves! Both of these cookbooks are filled with delicious healthy recipes for runners. These meals will keep her fueled and strong to continue logging all those miles.
If your mom is anything like mine, she loves her coffee. This coffee mug and tumbler will keep her coffee warm while representing her hobby. Coffee is a necessity before those long runs, so help her drink her coffee in style and stay motivated while doing so.
These shoes are a gift your runner mom may not even know she needs – until she tries them. If your mom has a race coming up or is training for long distances, these shoes will offer her the perfect amount of comfort for recovery after all those miles. These are easy to slip on after a race, or at home and outside when the weather is warm.
All runners need plenty of socks, and there’s no better Mother’s Day message than the ones printed on these. Inspire your runner mom to continue logging miles with these cute socks with motivational messages. Remind her how much she inspires you with these fun socks.
There are so many to choose from, but these are some of my favorites! Give your mom a Mother’s Day gift that is unique to her and her personality. There are so many different fun sayings on these shirts. Celebrate her half marathon or marathon accomplishments, her love of coffee, craziness, or anything in between. There is a perfect shirt for every running mom!
If your mom is looking for some decorations around her house, these bookends will be the perfect addition to her bookshelf. Celebrate her running accomplishments by giving her these bookends to display!
No doubt your mom has some race or running pictures that she loves. Displaying race pictures is a great way to keep those memories alive and celebrate her accomplishment. This decorative frame is the perfect display for any running picture of hers!
Maybe your mom already has all the running gadgets she needs. If so, this pillow is for you. Rather than buying her a new gadget, give her this pillow to display on her bed or in the living room.
As you can see, the Mother’s Day gift ideas for runners are endless! Get creative this year and really surprise your running mom. Taking the time to find the perfect gift for your mom will definitely pay off on Mother’s Day. Surprising someone you love with a unique and fun gift really shows them how much you care about them. I can think of no one better deserving than a mother to receive a heartfelt, thoughtful gift.
