Mother’s Day is coming up and I’m pretty sure everyone’s bustling with excitement. Kids are trying to figure out what gift is worthy enough for their mom and mother’s are trying to subtly leave hints of gifts they’d like to receive. 

Well I’m in the same boat because to this day I don’t think I’ve gotten my mom a gift that I was content with. I think my best work might’ve been a card I made with wax crayons and colored paper. The only problem is that was in basic school/preschool and I was 5 so any gift was special. 

Times have changed and I’m really not trying to break the bank for one holiday (even though she deserves it) so I created a list of affordable gift ideas and I’ll be sharing them with you. These gifts are all under $30 with the exception of two that may vary in price.

Spa Day

Just thinking about having a day of relaxation with people pampering me - massages, facials and a mani-pedi - has me (and I’m pretty sure you too) tingling with excitement. So imagine how our mothers would feel about being gifted one?  I’ve been considering a 60 minute Swedish massage with a charcoal facial and a mani-pedi to complete the package but sadly I haven’t been able to find a salon that has this on offer. I really recommend this as a gift because this will have your Mom’s body buzzing for days and trust me, she’ll love you. Plus it could work as a last minute Mother's Day gift  diynyr those of you who genuinely forgot or didn't have time to get something extravagant.


Self Care Basket

Now this is where affordability drops in - you can literally buy a bunch of "cheap" gifts for your mom and make one big gift. This gift might need some creativity but it’s nothing a YouTube video can't fix. You’ll need  collection of skin care/self care items and a straw basket but if you prefer a box then that works too. The idea behind this basket or box is to compile different types of skin care products that you believe your mom will like. I’m talking:
  • Sheet masks
  • Peel off masks
  • Face scrubs 
  • Body scrubs 
  • Hand masks
  • Foot masks 
  • A body massager 
  • Exfoliating sponges 
  • Body oils 
Basically anything you can think of that will help her relax and act like an at-home spa treatment. You can even throw in a book or two because reading is a subtle form of self care. Go crazy if you have to - she's your mom and I know you want to spoil her.

Hair Product Bundle 

This bundle is on the simpler side but it still can be special if it’s a bundle of products from a brand your mom likes. So if you noticed that her hair Mousse is running low just surprise her with the full product line #gobigorDONTgohome. My mom is almost always trying to sneak some of my hair products for her hair and my little sister’s so I know she’d appreciate this as a gift. Plus buying the full line works out better than buying the products individually and if you’re lucky (and dependent on the brand) there might be extra goodies in the box. All that’s left is for you to write a sweet message and wrap the bundle. 

An Outfit 

By an outfit I mean a top, bottom, shoes and accessories. Try to get her a complete look that works well together and will make her feel like a foxy mama. It doesn’t have to be anything too expensive but something that she’ll feel comfortable wearing and feel confident in. To make it extra special you can take her out (on a mini date or something), hype her up and have a mini photo shoot. That way she’ll have a physical memory of the night. This would also be great because it’ll let her know that she’s still got it even though she had you 20+ years ago.

Household Items 

My mother is the type of person that would pass on spending money on herself just so that she can buy something for her house. She’ll literally buy a wall ornament that's on sale instead of a new pair of jeans. If your mom is anything like mine then buying her household items would work just as good as these other gifts or even have a stronger effect. Like I said earlier, you can keep it simple and buy things like picture frames, potted plants, candles, or trinket boxes. OR you can go crazy and buy her a new fridge, washing machine or a tv. You know her best so it’s up to you!

Something Handmade 

There’s nothing a mother loves more than a handmade gift from their child - it'll be like your very own diy project. The kind that shows that you don’t have any money to buy something nice but you still care enough to try. In our childhood days a card would do but since we’re older we can step it up a notch. Things like a decorative picture frame, a photo collage, or an album, earrings, bath-bombs and customized jewelry can work. If you’re not too artistic you can stick to something simple but meaningful like a keychain for her car/house keys - something she’ll take with her whenever she goes out. Try to make it something meaningful because the more mushy it is the more she’ll love it. 

So there you have it! 6 Budget Mother’s Day Gift Ideas but we’re not done yet - I’ve added a bonus gift idea below. 



**BONUS: A Subscription Box

As of late, subscription boxes have been my new obsession and every time I watch an unboxing video I find myself thinking that they would make great gifts. This gift was somewhat my brother’s idea because he’s super lazy and preferred something that took minimal effort on his part i.e. a gift that was already packaged, affordable and offered variety. Basically all the nice stuff so he doesn’t have to do it. This would also be ideal because your mom would end up with a new gift every month (and she wouldn’t even expect it) and you could have the duplicate products or anything that she doesn’t want. So it’s a win-win situation.

Yesterday I went a bit crazy and signed of for a bunch of them (Target, Walmart, Birchbox and Ipsy) but the one that I’m most excited for is Birchbox. It’s a monthly subscription that costs $15 per month and you receive 4-6 sample products in your box. If you’re lucky you might get some full-size products every now and then. At first I thought that $15 was a bit much for some beauty products (that I probably wouldn’t use) but they sucked me in with their BOGO coupon. Yup! I got caught in the trap but for my first month I’ll get TWO boxes instead of one. 

If you’re interested in getting this subscription for your Mom or even yourself just click the link below and enter the coupon code. The coupon does expire so you have to act quickly. 

Coupon code: DOUBLEFUN
