Are you racing your brain trying to think of some budget-friendly Mother’s Day gifts for mom? With a little creativity, you can give Mom a gift that is sweet and sentimental, yet still keeps some cash in your hand. Here are some budget-friendly Mother’s Day gift ideas for you to try this Mother’s Day season, sure to wow Mom as well as save you money.
1. Help her grow a garden.
Instead of giving Mom expensive flowers that will die in a week, give her some seeds or seedlings to start her own garden. This way, she will have a garden and blooms she can enjoy all season! Another great idea is potted herbs or bulbs that she can enjoy indoors then move outside when the weather warms up. Perfect!
2. Treat her to breakfast.
Breakfast will always cost you less than dinner. Instead of breaking the bank with an expensive dinner, opt for a budget friendly breakfast or brunch instead. You will still have a great meal with a little cash leftover.
3. Create a photo collage.
Head to the dollar store and grab a picture frame for creating your own photo collage. Take your favorite photos and arrange them into a collage so she can relive the sweet memories whenever she wants.
4. Gift her with a journal.
Find a beautiful yet inexpensive journal for mom to express her thoughts in. You can find them at most retail stores and even dollar stores. Don’t forget to add a pretty pen and write a message to her in the journal as well. That way, she will always remember who gifted her the journal.
5. Check out Groupon.
Check out sites such as Groupon or Living Social for experiences you can treat mom to. This might include spa treatments, shows, and other entertainment options for less.
