Unique Mother's Day Gifts

Sure, you want to find a great Mother’s Day gift for your mom or grandma—or even your wife—but sometimes the options can be expensive. I have found five different categories of gifts online that are personalized to your mother's interests--and pretty unique. I would be glad to receive any of them. Consider the following Mother’s Day Gifts for under $20.

1. Birthstone Jewelry and More for Mom

Stores such as Macy’s have jewelry selections for under $20. The most unique gift I found was a stretchy silvery ring with a heart on the front. Sweet! Especially for 15 bucks. Macy’s has tons of dangly, flirty earrings for under $20. Perhaps an even better site is DealsDirect. I found lots of cool deals for under $20 and even $10. Some neat birthstone earrings are very personal and right now are just $7.95—with free shipping. Or maybe a bracelet would appeal more to the mother in your life. A birthstone bracelet is still under $20, as are bangles and a unique Disco ball bracelet. I love the idea of a Disco ball bracelet, and your cool mom may, too.

A book honoring a mother is a special gift.

2. Books that Entertain and Honor Mom

Many busy moms welcome the opportunity to steal away for a few moments now and then with a book. At Booktopia, you can even click on your price range—under $5, $5 to $10, $10 to $20, and up. There are categories of fiction, non-fiction, plus a clearance section with significantly reduced prices. For less than $20, you can help Mom escape into the romance of Danielle Steel or the mysteries of James Patterson.

Personalize your book gift even more by buying a book related to Mom's interests or hobbies. Does she like to cook? For $10 to $12, you can find cookbooks on specialties such as slow cookers or smoothies. Right now, some books are 95% off. 95%? Yes, you heard right. There are amazingly some books on sale for just a few bucks. Marvellus Mums is one such book, great for children and adults, that sells for just $3.50. What about a special book called MOTHER that is a tribute to mothers? Sign this one with your own message, and this gift is a winner. Plus, the book is just under three bucks. Now, that’s a deal any mom would love!

4. Cuddly Teddy Bears

Well, I had to include this site. How often does Mom get the gift of a cuddly stuffed animal? Probably not often enough! Teddy Treasures is a unique site that is specific just to the ever-popular teddy bear.

Mom or Wifey will love a cuddly, plush teddy bear with a heart on it, or perhaps a flower or something else. These do go up in price the bigger they get, but the smaller ones start out at just under $20. These are very cute!

3. High Quality Beauty Products

Beauty products are a very intimate gift that you can personalize based on your special lady's preferences. With beauty products at Strawberry.net at up to 70% off, you will probably want to get some for yourself as well—no matter who you are. Male or female--there are products for both men and women.

With 50 to 70% off, you can take advantage of sales on fine fragrances such as Kate Moss perfume and Calvin Klein scented bath and shower products. With all the name brand, quality products on this site, it’s worth browsing.

Have fun with Snapfish Photo Books

5. Personalized Photos on Items

Perhaps a personalized gift is the most unique, so I’m saving the best for last. At SnapFish, you can find all sorts of personalized gifts for Mom for under $20. On this site, there is also a tab where you can click on “gifts under $20.” Get a favorite photo put on a poster or inside a glitter globe for the special mother in your life. Put a picture on a smaller item such as a key chain or a bookmark. What about on a Christmas ornament? What about getting your face (or mug!) plastered onto a coffee mug? Your mug on a mug! Or family photos on a calendar for the year? Would Mom like a personalized phone skin for her phone? A t-shirt or apron with a photo on it? What about a puzzle with a scene of her own family? Or a kitchen trivet? Playing cards? Really, the list goes on. There are many personalized gift items under $20—and even $10—to choose from at SnapFish.

Save with Online Coupons

Are you in a hurry to find a uniquely personalized gift for Mother’s Day at the last minute? If so, I would check out these sites to find your special Mother’s Day gift for under $20. Many of these sites include free shipping, too. So hurry online with your Snapfish coupons for personalized gift items and other great deals.

Great ideas ! I love the personalized ones the best. Now that I'm a mom, I can see why those were always my mom's favorites.

Great ideas. I like the personalized photo options the best.

This will be my first Mother's Day since my own Mom died, so it's bittersweet. However, I exchange cards and small gifts with my sister on Mother's Day, so these are some nice ideas.

Voted up across the board except for funny.

I once gave my mom an "anything box". In addition to containing things she really liked, it had a live mouse.

These are all interesting ideas and the gifts being under $20 would appeal to lots of people. I like the birthstone jewelry idea as well as the personalized one. It's good to really be able to personalize your gift for your mom to make it more special and meaningful.

Happyboomernurse--I can't imagine not having my mom on Mother's Day, at least to call on the phone. That's sweet what you do with your sister, though. Thanks for reading and for the votes.

I absolutely love buying photo gifts. Nowadays those sites have so many gifts with the photos on it, and they're reasonably priced. I am on the e-mail list of a couple of them, so I see some of the sales and coupon codes that come and go. Shutterfly (just like Snapfish) will periodically send an e-mail with a coupon code for a free small item, such as a personalized card or a magnet. I actually got a couple of magnets from them for Mother's Day, including the free one. They were sent to my house within days!

As usual, these are very good ideas! Thank you for sharing this with us.

Effer--I miss you, too! I also missed Mother's Day! Had an emergency to take care of and the day got lost in it. I got in a couple of phone calls to mom and stepmom and am sending late cards tomorrow! I'm not sure what happened to yours? Must have got lost. LOL. I hope you're doing okay, girl. It's great to see you!
