Somehow I always end up forgetting special days like Mother’s Day or Father’s Day.
This leads to very uninspired gifts that I managed to come up with last minute.
But not this year. This year I am prepared.
And this post will hopefully help you to be prepared too.
Because your mom deserves more than a gift you haven’t thought more than 5-minutes about, right?
Some of the gifts are a bit of a splurge, but most of them are super affordable and under 20$.

Mother’s Day Gifts under 20$

Beautiful MacBook Air Case with flower pattern

Amazon Rating: 4.7/5
Price: 15$

I can’t stress enough how beautiful this case is. It’s stunning and I absolutely want it for myself, haha.
It is super romantic, so it probably isn’t the best choice if your mom likes more minimalistic designs. But if your mom is anything like mine, she will love this gorgeous case!

Gorgeous Orchid Necklace

Amazon Rating: 5/5
Price: 15$

Is it a mom-thing to love orchids? If yes, please tell me. My mom is obsessed with orchids and has at least 20 of them (I’m not even kidding.) + she somehow is able to keep them alive. This necklace would be perfect for every orchid-obsessed mom out there! And it’s super affordable.

Start Where You Are: A Journal for Self-Exploration

Amazon Rating: 4.6/5
Price: 13,33$

This is something that I personally own and have gifted to people several times before. It is an awesome tool for self-exploration. It fosters mindfulness and creativity. In times of social media overconsumption and the bombardment of opinions of other people, it’s sometimes easy to forget what YOUR values and thoughts are. This Journal will bring you back to it. So if you think that your mom should focus more on herself or that she may feel overwhelmed with something – this book may be the perfect gift for her!
It’s also a great bonding experience if you decide to get a journal yourself and share your results with each other.

OPI Nail Polish

Amazon Rating: 4.3/5
Price: 10.5$

This nail polish may be a bit more expensive than other ones but I can tell you, using quality nail polish compared to cheap drugstore nail polish is a BIG difference.
My mom always used to buy buys the cheap ones (and I used to do the same) but discovering that higher priced nail polishes are actually A LOT better has been a game changer for her.
If your mom likes to paint her nails, give a high-quality brand like OPI a try!

Self-watering bird-shaped bulbs

Amazon Rating: 3.8/5
Price: 8$

This product is intended to increase the watering span of plants. It’s great to keep your plants alive while on vacation. I included this product because my mom has a similar one and she loves it – though hers is not made of glass. This one looks super cute – but some customers on Amazon state that it breaks easily. So keep that in mind if you are interested.

Beautiful Flowery Garden Gloves

Amazon Rating: 4.6/5
Price: 11,30$

I don’t know why, but my mom never used to wear gloves when working in the garden and it did drive me crazy. One reason could be because she never had good-looking ones that were actually useful. Now she owns a pair and it is SO comforting to me. (Because she actually did cut herself several times due to some glass or stones in the soil.) If your mom is also a crazy garden worker – treat her with a beautiful looking pair of garden gloves.

Nourishing Hand Repair Kit for Hard Working Hands

Amazon Rating: 4.5/5
Price: 12$

If your mom is a crazy garden worker like mine, chances are her hands are in need of repair.
But even if she isn’t, most people have to deal with injuries to their hands or dryness. A nourishing hand repair kit might be a great option for every mom that has to deal with that kind of problems.

Moisturizing Beeswax Lip Balm

Amazon Rating: 4.6/5
Price: 8,50$ (4-Pack)

This company has amazing products. That’s why Burt’s Bees Lip Balm also needs get’s its spot.

Repairing Foot-Salve

Amazon Rating: 4.3/5
Price: 6$

Even though feet aren’t the most beautiful topic, I feel that not only your mom’s lips and hands deserve nourishing attention – her feet do too!

Skin-treating Dead Sea Mud Mask

Amazon Rating: 4.3/5
Price: 15$

Face Masks can be a great way to reduce oily or breakout-prone skin. Using them together with your mom while having a glass of wine can also be a great idea for a “pamper yourself” spa evening on Mother’s Day.

Tissue box cover for modern design home decor

Amazon Rating: 4.1/5
Price: 7,15$

This product is such a cute way to cover ugly tissue boxes. This might be the perfect product to beautify your mom’s home!

Vintage Kitchen Timer

Amazon Rating: 3.9/5
Price: 16,50$

This retro design kitchen timer is a great product to add some vintage flair to your moms’ kitchen.

Cute Lamp Bookmark

Amazon Rating: 3.9/5
Price: 7$

I had to include this super cute bookmark. Great if your mom likes to read!

Mother’s Day Gifts under 50$

Rituals Body Scrub

Amazon Rating: No ratings yet
Price: 29$

This is again something that I personally use and recommend. The smell is absolutely amazing.
If I wouldn’t know it better I would want to eat it. It’s that good.
The other scrubs also smell really good but the red one is my favorite.
If you want to treat your mom with something that will make her skin feel amazing & a relax her, this might be a great option!

Beautiful Golden Knot Ring

Amazon Rating: 5/5
Price: 31,50$

This ring looks so elegant and classy. The knot represents a bond that cannot be broken.
Quite fitting for a mother-daughter relationship, right?

Retro-style flipping clock

Amazon Rating: 4.1/5
Price: 41$

I may be a bit biased towards retro style home decor products. So I can understand if that’s not your thing.
But if it is – this flipping clock is hella cool. This will be a great addition to every vintage-loving home!

Audible Gift Membership

3 Months for: 45$

I use Audible almost every single day. Every time I can’t read because I’m crafting something, I’m on the go or doing household chores – I listen to a book through Audible. This is again something that I highly recommend and I strongly believe that this would be an awesome gift for anyone who loves to read a lot. So if your mom is a big reader – maybe gift her a 3 months (or more) membership from Audible. Maybe she will love listening to Audiobooks as much as I do.

Mother’s Day Gifts over 50$

Le Creuset Stoneware French Press

Amazon Rating: 5/5
Price: 70$

The next items are all a bit of a splurge. If you don’t want to spend that kind of money for Mother’s Day – I totally get it!
If you would still like to gift something beautiful for your mom and didn’t like the ideas I’ve mentioned above – maybe think about making something yourself? I have a post about that too – read my 35+ Handmade Gifts For Mom post to get some beautiful ideas.
If you do want to get something really cool for your mom but are on a budget – maybe pool together with your siblings or your dad to make that possible.
This gorgeous & colorful stoneware French press might be a great way to pimp your mom’s kitchen.
I think it looks so beautiful and I generally prefer a French press that isn’t see-through.

Vintage Air Circulator Fan

Amazon Rating: 4.3/5
Price: 100$

Why are circulator fans always so ugly? Most designs are practical but not beautiful.
This one can do both. It’s an awesome gift idea for moms who are very passionate about home decor and design!

Kindle Paperweight E-Reader

Amazon Rating: 4.5/5
Price: 120$

This is something that is a bit of a bet. Your mom might love it or she might not be using it at all. It depends on what is important to your mom – does she read a lot? Does she travel a lot? Does she have a long commute or is on the go often?
If one of those answers was a yes – a Kindle E-Reader might be a great option. My boyfriend and I purchased one before we went on our big trip to South America and I thought it was a great investment. It’s especially great if your mom travels a lot – this way she can read as much as she wants without having to think about the heavy weight of several books.
And even though the initial investment might seem a lot – you can save a lot of money when buying e-books instead of physical books. Usually, they are at least a few bucks cheaper than the hardcover version.

Smeg Retro Style Toaster

Amazon Rating: 4.4/5
Price: 150$

Ah Smeg – the Apple of kitchenware. Elegant, beautiful and so …darn expensive. It’s a pity.
But if your mom is super into design and likes things pretty – this Smeg Toaster might be the ultimate gift for her. I know that I would probably treat it as my only child.
