JBL Under Armour Wireless Headphones – $180
For the active mom who spends time at the gym, running or even just taking long walks with the dog, there is really nothing greater than the gift of music. When JBL sent these headphones, my very active wife immediately took them and hasn’t put them down since. Designed for active people, JBL specifically partnered with Under Armour because they wanted to produce a high-quality wireless headphone that could take on sweat and fast movement without dislodging or skipping a beat. JBL is owned by the same parent company as AKG and Harmon Kardon. Known for their quality, these Bluetooth headphones beat out any of the earbuds previously tested, and that’s why we’re so confident your active mom will love them and get a ton of use out of them.

A Case of Rosé Wine – $228
For the woman who has everything, give her a consumable gift that she loves. With the weather warming up, restaurant patios opening, and spring flowers blooming, it is the definitive season to drink rosé wine. Though technically in the same category as the sickly sweet, kool-aid pink white zinfandel variety (which we certainly would not recommend!), rosé wine is tinted pink with the color of the grape skins. Highly regarded rosés are produced all over the world but consider looking at the famous rosé making region of Provence, France for dry wines with light, fruity character. Rosés are recommended to be consumed shortly after bottling, so Mom can enjoy them immediately. Head to your local wine purveyor and pick out a mixed case, or click here to order a case of great Provençal rosé wine.
