Mother’s Day Ideas (that won’t break the bank)

Mother’s Day is just around the corner and I’ve seen lots of Mother’s Day Gift Guides floating around so I wanted to write a slightly alternative one.

If it’s trinkets that you’re looking for here are a couple of bits similar to what I might buy my own Mum for Mother’s day. They’re all under £10 so won’t break the bank.

Mama Keyring

Of Life & Lemons Keyring

Honeysuckle Hand and Nail Cream

Mother’s Day Socks

Trinket Tray

Berylune Tealight Holder

Other Ideas:

Because I’m at uni, I often don’t spend Mother’s Day with my Mum so if we’re not together on the day I tend not to faff around getting a present for when I do see her. Instead I’ll tell her to get some flowers or chocolates or she’ll let me know if she’s seen anything she likes and I’ll get that for her instead. It’s not the most spontaneous or ‘romantic’ way of doing things but I’m not a fan on commercialism for commercialism’s sake.

Another option is to get crafty and make something for mother’s day. One thing I’ve done in the past is to make a little box out of coloured card and buy some chocolates to pop in. If you don’t know how to make a box, here’s a really easy tutorial.

If you’re still struggling for ideas here are a few more, but don’t forget that time is more valuable than money. And I can bet that your Mum would much rather you spend the day with her than just spend your money on her.

More Ideas:

  • Take her out for a meal, or cook one for her at home.
  • A spa day.
  • Go to the theatre of cinema.
  • Go out for cocktails.
  • Breakfast in Bed.
  • Buy flowers.
  • Bake a cake.
  • Make a photo album or a video.

What are your plans for Mother’s Day? Let me know in the comments!

    I love all of these ideas, especially the idea of a photo album or a video. And you can never go wrong with cake and cocktails either. I once made my mother breakfast in bed and although she loved the breakfast she insisted on eating it at the table because she said it was more comfortable (if someone made me breakfast in bed I’d definitely stay there forever haha) xx
