Mothers Day is this Sunday and before you go into panic mode, know you have enough time to still get the perfect gift to show you care. You can even show you care on a budget and without just sending a card. It only takes a click of the mouse, free or cheap shipping and you can have the perfect gift dropped on their doorstep.
Whether it’s for you, your own mother, daughter or even mother-in-law, you never have to break the bank for a lovely gift and we are here to share some of the best. Check out our list of elegant, cute and lovely cheaper gifts that will still wow her on mother’s day!
Coffee mugs with cute or funny sayings are super popular right now and even if your mother is a tea drinker, she will appreciate this inexpensive but lovely gift. Coffee is queen and we drink a lot of it so why not say something that reflects your personality or style. The more glitter the better and they still remain reasonable.
Etsy is full of cute and specific mugs to choose from and just like the one above, but if you are like me and just HAVE to have a travel mug that stays hot for hours, then opt for a contigo or other brand that keep your coffee or tea hot for at least 6 hours.
Contigo West Loop AUTOSEAL 16 oz Black Stainless Steel Travel Mug – $24.09
Contigo® 20 oz. SnapSeal™ Byron Travel Mug – $12.99
I have this one and it’s a SnapSeal™ Byron Travel Mug and love it and both styles come in a few different colors but not as vibrant or fun as other travel mugs. The bottomline is if your mother is serious about her coffee, a cute or functional coffee mug will be greatly appreciated!
Cheaper than you think, and keep water cold longer than you would imagine, stainless steel water bottles are ideal for the mother who loves to stay hydrated. I have one and love it as it stay cold for up to 24 hours and hot for up to 12. They fit in regular cup holders, are stylish and having them with me makes sure I drink my 75 ounces a day as I want.
The range in styles is crazy! They have every color and print you can imagine and the 9 oz. is under $30 with the 17 oz under $40. For yourself or the mother you have in mind, this is a gift she will love, use and appreciate!
Graphic tees proclaiming your melanin pride are one of the best Mother’s Day gifts you can give or get. Seriously Natural Boutique, my shop, is full of black and natural beauty that any mother would love. Shameless plug? Maybe, but these popular tees, tanks and bags are reasonable, fun and cute as hell to wear!
The 100% Natural Afro tee is a best seller and comes in 13 different colors. For only $21.99 you can give the gift of self-love to any mother. Several styles of tanks, tees, totes and mugs to choose from.
ALWAYS a favorite, chocolate covered strawberries is a wonderful idea for a Mother’s day gift. Everyone loves chocolate and they also love strawberries and when you put them together….you have heaven on earth! The problem is, they can be quite pricey at most places that create and ship them.
Well, not all are super pricey. Edible Arrangements has the SWIZZLE BERRIES™ SEMISWEET CHOCOLATE BOX of 12 chocolate covered strawberries for only $39.
Shipping is only $14.99 or free if you pick it up yourself. You can add on more things like card and balloons, but those are unnecessary charges since you can get that cheaper somewhere else. What I love about Edible arrangements is you do not think you are getting a bargain and by the time you check out, huge charges mysteriously appear on your order!
I’ve had that happen to me personally just too many times. That’s why I am leery on who I buy fruit or flowers from, but with Edible Arrangements, what you see is what you get! No hidden prices.
We love natural hair and had to add these great gifts to the list. Natural haircare brands are enticing us with gift sets that are perfect for trying out new lines without committing too much money. Reasonably priced and paired for convenience, hair kits are perfect Mother’s Day gifts.
You can always pick up her faves and place in a basket with pretty tissue paper too so make it fun and pretty before you present! Know she’s eyeing an expensive brand? See if they have a hair kit like the Carol’s Daughter Monoi Repairing 3-Piece Starter Kit which is only $26.00! These kits save you money and a great way to try something new on the cheap!
Anyone can get an eye mask but when you want to step up your game, you know to buy a skin rejuvenating eye mask that’s designed to visibly reduce signs of aging. The best part about these masks are how reasonable they are with their plushness being a quick 2nd best feature. From gels to ions to oxygen, these masks are super-charged to give her rest, relaxation and turn back the hands of time while she sleeps.
The Iluminage Skin Rejuvenating Eye Mask with Copper Oxide is a fast favorite but when looking make sure to focus on skin rejuvenating and you will find a slew of masks right in your price range.
The last three on the list are for the wine or alcohol loving mothers! We love them and they love wine so it only makes sense to get them something they would truly cherish. If you cannot afford that expensive wine they drink, you can get them great accessories for your spirits. Wine racks are excellent gifts that range in prices and add style to the home. Pick a neutral color to make sure it blends with her decor and watch her smile at your gift.
Wine glasses are almost as important as the wine that get poured into them. Make gathering fun and festive with the perfect glasses whether with stems or stemless as they are surging in popularity! Unique designs, colors and patterns, wine glasses are one of the hottest gifts this Mother’s Day and there are plenty in your price range.
Whether you get her one special glass or a set, make sure it fits her style and personality because there are several to choose from. I need to start creating my own stash of fun wine glasses and was surprised just how many that I would love and feel I need in my life. I marvel at the tipsy ones but also love the use of stained glass on others. The choices are endless so start looking now!
Last, but most certainly not least, Skinnies Cocktail Mixers is for the mother who doesn’t want to drink her calories! I usually steer clear of alcohol when dieting because the calories can be brutal, but Skinnies are the perfect cocktail mixers that give your drinks amazing flavor. With these all natural and zero calorie packets created with plant based ingredients, the sweetness comes from Stevia and natural erythritol from melons to give a smooth balanced taste.
Me and sis had fun trying out all the flavors:
Maui Mai Tai
New York Cosmo
Only $17.99 for a variety pack which has 6 packets in each boxed flavor, you’ve got about the least expensive no-calorie cocktail party with no guilt! Loved the NY Cosmo and sis really enjoyed the Maui Mai Tai. This will be a winner for Mother’s day gifts!
Now, get to shopping and make sure those gifts get in the mail ASAP! Share below just what you are going to get for that special mother and remember…getting something for yourself is always a good idea!
