Affordable gift ideas for your mom
Whether you’re celebrating Mother’s Day, your parent’s wedding anniversary or your mom’s birthday, knowing what to buy her can be tough. Nowadays, most of us are lucky enough to be able to purchase whatever we want, whenever we want it, so it’s easy to feel stumped on your mission to find a suitable gift. Though we cannot guarantee that your mom will want to own everything we’ve added to our list below, it should give you some food for thought…
Flowers are a traditional gift for moms as they’re affordable, pretty, and show your mom that you care, but they’re also pretty wasteful and not very environmentally friendly. Instead, you could buy your mom a houseplant so that she has a gift she can look at every day for years to come, rather than just for a couple of days. Some of the most popular houseplants on the market right now include the croton, which is stunningly pretty, alongside the dracaena in its stunning lemon line color, the moth orchid, the golden pothos, and the lucky bamboo sticks.
If you don’t get to spend much quality time with your mom, you could consider hosting a movie night at her house or yours. Find a movie you’ll both enjoy on Amazon or Netflix, buy some popcorn and snacks like chocolate and Diet Coke, and turn out the lights. Even better if you turn it into a family affair and bring her grandchildren along for some fun. This is an uber-affordable alternative to going to the movies and will create memories she will cherish.
No, we’re not saying that you need to blow a small fortune on a necklace or bracelet for your mom, but we are saying that jewelry is a great gift idea to consider. Whether you opt for a personalized bangle that she can wear when she goes out or even a stunning Celtic cross that has been hallmarked by the Irish Assay Office in Dublin Castle, you can pick up some very attractive, high-quality silver jewelry for less than $50 if you know where to look.
Is your mom always on her feet, running after your father and your siblings? One gift idea that will put a smile on her face is some quality loungewear, forcing her to get out of her uncomfortable clothing and into something that she can laze around in. Pair it with a pair of slipper socks or a hoodie and she’ll be able to curl up and watch her favorite reality shows on an evening when all of the chores have been done, and she’ll have no excuse not to!
