Finding affordable Mother’s Day gifts can be a challenge. You don’t have a ton of money to spend but you don’t want it to look like you had to scrimp to buy something. When I shop, my goal is to get my Mom something she loves that she wouldn’t necessarily get for herself.

Affordable Mother’s Day Gifts
One of the easiest ways to find an affordable gift is to create something amazing yourself. Now, you don’t need to sew Mom a dress or give her a manicure although if you want to, go right ahead. Instead, create a collection of items that you know she’ll love. But, rather than buy 15 full-size items, purchase 15 trial or travel sized items and include them in a makeup bag, travel tote, or wicker basket.
Pamper me gifts
If your mom is high strung or dealing with a lot of stress (are there moms that aren’t?), try a few of your favorite pamper me gifts. Add a lavender scented votive candle, a box of chamomile tea, a soothing shea butter foot lotion, a pair of fuzzy socks, and a jar of homemade bath salts.

Is your mother fascinated with other countries and cultures? Does she love to travel or watch movies about exotic locations? If so, put together treats from her favorite locations. Consider a sandalwood candle, a gift card for lunch at a sushi restaurant, a custom pair of chopsticks, and an exotic naturally scented soap or two.
Does your mom love everything gourmet? If so, don’t worry you can wow her with a few chocolate covered strawberries, a chocolate scented votive candle, a warm vanilla body butter, and a spa robe to relax in after a long day. If you love to cook, invite her over for a home-cooked gourmet meal.
If your mom really isn’t into “things” for Mother’s Day, there are still ways you can impress her. The gift of your time is the one thing that most moms want. Invite her to the local flower show, go on a hike in a local park, take her out for coffee, or just schedule some time to spend an afternoon together.
