Mother’s day to me is more about indulging in a little extra sleep and having my coffee brought to me in bed. That makes me happy. I don’t expect presents, just a small token of appreciation like extra hugs and kisses. However, here’s a little list of gift ideas under $20.
1.) Hand-printed terracotta potted plant. Purchase a plant and have the kids use ceramic paint and put a hand-print on the side of the pot. Cuteness.
2.) Clean the bathroom, I mean SCRUB it everywhere. Especially in a house full of BOYS! Get the walls gentlemen!
3.) A framed hand-print tree. I saw this idea on Pinterest and fell in love! Easy, inexpensive, and an absolute treasure!
4.) Gift-card to the bookstore where she can spend some quiet time.
5.) I personally would love this photo lens travel coffee mug.
6.) Mom’s favorite sweet treat.
7.) Plan a picnic. Nothing better than quality time together as a family and not being the one who has to prepare everything.
8.) Purchase a porcelain pen and have the kids draw or write a special message to mom on platter or mug.
9.) Plant some of mom’s favorite flowers. My favorite is hydrangea. My mother gifted me a beautiful hydrangea plant last year and I’m thrilled to see it starting to return to life right now.
10.) Target has some great bold spring scarves this season for on $14.99. Add a little color to mama’s wardrobe.
