Celebrating Mother's Day on a Budget

Mother's Day is coming up. You've waited until the last minute to pick up a gift for her...what a surprise. You're in a pinch, you have about $15 to your name and you don't even know where to start. Mom deserves the world but you can only afford a cheap candle, and that might even be stretching it.

Well, we have good news. First of all, we have all been there. Second of all, we are here to provide you with 7 ideas for celebrating Mother's Day successfully while on a budget.

1) Craft Time!

Mom's love gifts that are handmade and
personal. Handmade gifts show that you actually took time and creativity to think of something that would be meaningful to her. Whether it be a decorated picture frame, hand-painted coffee mug or a personally designed flower pot, mom is sure to love it. 

2) Flowers

Mom's love flowers. We are pretty sure that if there was a mom handbook that would be written down in it. A small bouquet of beautiful flowers is guaranteed to put a smile on her face.

3) Breakfast In Bed

Is there one person in this entire world who wouldn't enjoy breakfast in bed? Probably not. With that being said...coffee, eggs, muffins, fresh fruit and orange juice all being served to mom while she is enjoying the comfort of her bed will be sure to start her special day off on the perfect note.

4) Clean-up, Clean-up

Mom has been cleaning up after you for a majority of your life, it's time for you show her you appreciate it. Mother's Day would be a great day to take matters into your own hands (without being told to by mom for once) and get to scrubbing the floors, cleaning the windows and vacuuming up the carpet. This gift will cost you nothing and will provide mom with a whole lot of entertainment and a clean house!

5) Plan A Family Outing

Whether you plan a day full of games in your backyard, a picnic at the local park or a hiking trip around your families favorite trail, mom will enjoy this time she is able to spend with you and the family.

6) Mom Spa Day

Set aside some time to pamper mom. Give her a face mask, paint her fingers and toes, warm her up some tea and treat her to a back massage. Rest and relaxation is a great way to spend her special day.

7) Scrapbook/Picture Album

Gather up your favorite moments between you and mom and put them into a scrapbook or a picture album. Mom will love being able to flip through this and look back on all of the memories your family has had together. This simple gift will be more meaningful to her than you would imagine.
