If your millennial mom enjoys a walk with a stroller, she could strap on a Fitbit and get some credit for those steps she’s taking. The Fitbit site says she’ll log those steps even if her hand is holding a stroller handle. Even so, pushing the stroller with one hand will ensure your steps are counted.
When your millennial mom is ready to return to work, she could wrap a designer scarf around her neck to add a touch of elegance and sophistication. The mosaic logo Jacquard scarf comes in 3 colors: French gray, Tory navy/new ivory and red agate.
