Spoil Mum on Mother’s Day Without Breaking the Bank

Mother’s Day is great way to show your mum you appreciate all the things she does for you throughout the year. Let’s face it no matter how old you are she is always there for you.

Times are still tough but you can still spoil your mum on a budget:

Homemade Gifts & Cards

Get creative or if you have children get them making something for your/their mum.  A homemade card or present is better than a shop bought one any day. If you have children you probably already have the crafts to do it.

There are several sites where you can download cards to colour in and decorate yourself such as Got Free Cards or Mes cards. You could add a photo or print off a picture of her favourite flowers

Photo albums are a great gift for mums, print off her favourite pictures and put together a collection for her. You don’t have to get an expensive album look for cheap scrap books from places like Wilkinson and cover in pretty paper or check out your local charity shops.

You could do some baking and make mum her favourite cake or biscuits.  


Make your own hamper or gift bag for your mum at a fraction of the price of the ones you can buy.  Set yourself a budget and buy around that, don’t forget to add in the price of any basket or bag you get.

Here are some ideas:

The Coffee Lover: Pack of her favourite fresh coffee, coffee mug, biscuits/biscotti  and if your budget allows a new cafetiere.  You can get them from about £8’s depending on the size.

The Chocolate Lover: Fill a bag/basket with all her favourite chocolates; look around for the min boxes so you can get a good selection. You can also add in some sachets of hot chocolate and a mug.

The Book Lover: You don’t have to buy new books, have a look around the charity shops and find books by her favourite authors, throw in some chocolate and biscuits and she will be one happy lady.

Treat your mum to breakfast in bed or a nice lunch cooked by you and don’t forget to do the washing up afterwards!

If you would prefer to buy your mum a gift why not checkout your local shops they have a great range of gifts at affordable prices.

Here is my pick of the best:

 Whatever you get her this mother's day make sure she know you love her.
