It’s almost Mother’s Day and time to honor and celebrate the special Mothers in your life — especially your own! Often we do this with a gift, though there is no right or wrong way to show your love and respect for motherly women in your life. But you also don’t have to spend a bundle to give Mom something truly special.
From flowers to jewelry, books, or experiences, a great Mother’s Day gift reflects a little piece of who she is, brightens her day, and maybe makes her life a little easier, too. And don’t forget the card! She’ll cherish any special note your write inside.
Love your Mom but can’t spend a lot of money? Here are some of the best Mother’s Day gifts we’ve found under $20.
Customizable Plant Cubes
Mother’s Day is the best time to show your appreciation for all of the ways Mom has shown her love and support since you were born. That’s why an Appreciation Plant Cube ($14.99) make such a great gift. These seeds that grow into beautiful plants don’t just last longer than your traditional cut flower arrangement, they are a daily reminder of your love for Mom and how it continues to grow.
Each cube comes with seeds, a peat pellet, and a natural pinewood box that is lined with a plastic insert to prevent leaks. You can even make it special by personalizing it with a motivational design or adding a name or image that is special to you and Mom.
Smart Water Bottle with LED Temperature Display
Perhaps she’s a new Mom that hasn’t had a moment of time to herself to enjoy a sip of hot coffee in a while; or maybe, she’s the soccer Mom that supports relentlessly, in the heat, for hours on end, and deserves an ice-cold drink to keep her cheering voice primed.
Stainless steel water bottles that keep beverages hot or cold for extended lengths of time are easy to find. But for the busy Mom that would love to know whether she is about to scald herself with a too-hot-to-handle sip of tea, there’s this Smart Water Bottle with LED Temperature Display ($13.59). This portable bottle is stylish, sleek, and provides accurate temperature readings.
Rose-Scented Self-Care Sets
Every Mom deserves a self-care moment, and facial products from Mario Badescu are some of the most sought-after, so this Mist & Glow Duo Set available at Macy’s ($9.18 with code FRIEND) offers an aromatic duo of facial spray and a soy candle that will have her Mother’s Day coming up roses!
Aloe, herbs, and rosewater combine for a moisturizing, refreshing facial mist, while the small soy candle translates the same tranquility into Mom’s room as well.
A Book of Love and Heartfelt Reflection
The “Little Book of Mom” at Papersource ($8.95) is 192-pages of love, tips, inspiring quotes, heartfelt reflections, and humorous anecdotes to make Mom’s day or give her a few page-turning moments of peace.
A Treat That Tastes Homemade
If your Mom is the type that makes delicious homemade goodies, she’ll probably love to receive something that tastes homemade in return. Bonne Maman’s preserves and honey have always been made with love using simple, natural ingredients and that small-batch feeling.
The “Made for You” is a sampler gift box ($18.90) that features eight delicious mini-jars of Bonne Maman Preserves and Honey, including flavors like Apricot, Cherry, Fig, Honey, Orange Marmalade, Raspberry, Strawberry, and Wild Blueberry.
Custom Photo Blankets
Actually, you can add as many or as few photos as you like, including memories of you or any images you wish, to these customizable blankets, which are printed right here in the USA. Double-sided printing is even available.
A Spotify Song Memory
For the Mom into music, or for whom music evokes a specific memory, a custom Spotify song plaque from canvaschamp.com ($9.89) is pitch-perfect. These 4mm-thick acrylic plaques are both visual and audible — you chose the photo and song and Mom will enjoy looking at it and hearing the song play on her phone.
Not only is the Spotify song plaque a unique gift, but it makes for an interesting conversation piece in the home or office.
Personalized Keepsake Box
Does Mom need a place to store earrings, necklaces, rings, or other smaller keepsakes? A personalized keepsake box is a great gift to give Mom beautiful storage that shows her you care.
Engrave her name, a quote, or a sweet note on the lid of this silver-plated small box with a lined interior and remind Mom that you keep a place for her in your heart.
Remind Mom how very sweet you are.
Magnolia Bakery may have made a name for itself with cupcakes, but its cookies ($15) are just as crave-worthy! What’s more, Magnolia’s soft, chewy, and chunky take on the classic chocolate chip cookie comes in a six-count pack that can be delivered nationwide.
Make Her Life Easier
Whether she’s a Mom who loves to entertain or just winds down in the evenings with a relaxing glass of wine, this electric wine bottle opener from Oster ($19.99) makes uncorking that bottle a breeze. Not only is there enough power stored on a single charge to open up to 30 bottles of wine, plus an included foil cutter, but users say that its super simple push-button operation really works!
