Mother’s Day Gift Guide Under $50

Mother’s Day has always been extra special in our house because my mom was born on Mother’s Day and her birthday is always within a few days of it since it changes every year. This year, it happens to fall on it again so my sister and I have been trying to figure out what we can get her for both!

The biggest problem is: what do you get for the woman who has given you everything but asks for nothing in return?! It’s so hard to shop for her for any holiday, let alone 2 at once. Typically, since our mom isn’t materialistic, we try to get her personalized things with special meaning because that’s her favorite kind of gift. We also love to get her things to spoil herself with, because she deserves it! She is an amazing mom and grandma to my nephews.

I’ve come up with a gift guide to help anyone else struggling with what to get your mom, because I know how hard it is!

 

  1. PurseWallet (both under $35!!) This is one of the things my sister and I got our mom. She saw it in the store and loved it, and it’s on BIG sale right now so I had to share it with you guys! The floral design is perfect for Spring & Summer.
  2. Make UpMy mom loves Bare Minerals. Pick your momma up her favorite brand of make up to save her some time. Or get her some of the stuff you love to use and let her try it out.
  3. CandleWe had candles burning constantly as a kid to keep our house smelling good. This candle smells amazing and I definitely recommend it.
  4. Anti-Aging productsEvery mom wants youthful skin. Get her a skin care set to give her a nice glow.
  5. Pajamas. Who doesn’t love a nice pair of cute PJs?!
  6. Fun & Trendy EarringsDoes anyone else’s mom love vibrant things?? Bright colors and trendy tassles are a win-win.
  7. Nice RobeI think everyone should invest in a great quality robe. I wear a robe every day, they’re so nice to have for around the house. This comes in a lot of colors but is selling out quickly!
  8. Travel MugI think mom’s are always focusing on functionality. Mine only has boring travel mugs. Get her a cute one to spice it up.
  9. Throw PillowLet her know how happy you are that she’s your mom! Our mom is out of wall space for pictures so we’ve moved on to her couch haha.
  10. Throw BlanketCan one ever have TOO many throws? I don’t think so. You can stick with neutral colors OR get her a fun colorful one to add a pop to her living room.

 

Additional ideas:

  1. Personalize things: pillows, coffee mugs, blankets, jewelry. My mom loves things that are made special for her. Tip: Check out Etsy. They have such a wide variety of gift ideas, and plenty of them can be personalized! My sister got our mom some personalized throw pillows with my nephews names and my dogs names as her grandkids haha.
  2. Something she’ll use at home or on the go. Think of a nice throw for her living room or a nice travel coffee mug.
  3. A great book. Pick up something by her favorite author or from her favorite genre. If you’re unsure, ask your dad or check out her at-home library!
  4. Something related to a hobby. Gardening tools, cooking utensils, yoga gear, crafting supplies. Give her something to use while doing something she loves.
  5. A spa treatment. Every mom deserves to be pampered. Get her a gift certificate to treat herself, or better yet: book an appointment for the both of you and spend the day getting pampered together!
  6. Flowers or a potted plant. I send my mom flowers every year, but I know they don’t live too long. Think about getting her a bouquet of silk flowers that she can keep in the house, or a potted plant that will last a long time.

 

What are your Mother’s Day traditions?? I’d love to hear!

Have a wonderful weekend!

XO,

Dani

  • Comfy casual for errands is my style 👌🏻 also I love this hat because on the days I don’t feel like doing anything with my hair, hats are a lifesaver. And dry shampoo 😂. I put a poll up on my stories yesterday asking if you guys want to see a series of posts on #cozyminimalism and the answer was an overwhelming yes! I’ve already started working on them and will start posting next week so stay tuned!! In the mean time, check out my post on 12 ways you’re wasting money on clothes and how to stop. We’re all guilty of it 🤷🏻‍♀️. Click the link in my profile to read!  http://liketk.it/2zSzn #liketkit @liketoknow.it
  • Fun fact day about my wonderful husband: Jake has this uncanny ability to make me smile and laugh even when I’m sick. I was in bed all weekend but somehow he managed to still make me feel better. 
He is the king of puns and loves to make corny jokes. I’m talking real bad dad jokes. But I think they’re hilarious, and his enthusiasm and the fact that HE finds them so funny is the best part.

It’s the little things like this that showed me he was my perfect person. That and he told me he was going to marry me after 3 weeks of dating 😂🤷🏻‍♀️ which also made my laugh at the time but 9 months later he was down on one knee! 
That was also the same day I tried to break up with him because I had just gotten out of a bad relationship and I was starting to like him way too much too soon. I told him I wasn’t ready for another relationship and he literally said “are you trying to break up with me? ...no. We’re gonna get married.” I busted out laughing but he was so serious.
Even then, I could tell he really believed that. Now 4 months into our marriage he still shows me every day he wants to be married to me ❤️👰🏻🤵🏻 We have to appreciate the little things like the bad jokes because the effort behind them is how people say “I love you” in other ways. Happy Monday 💕#marriedlife💍 #marriagegoals
