Cheap Mothers Day Gifts

Updated on June 24, 2014

Cheap Mothers Day Gifts

I hope this page can offer you many ideas for mothers day. I will provide as many ideas for cheap mothers day gifts as possible, as well as some other cool mothers day related ideas.

Your mother is the most important person in your life. I don't just mean that in a cheap attempt at fuzzy wuzzy sentimentality. I mean literally and biologically, the most important human being. Without her, you would not exist. Granted, you could make the argument that you couldn't be here without your Father, but he has his own day later.

In the mean time, we need to honor our mothers the best way we can. Nothing will ever be enough to fully pay back the person who gave you a life, but we can try!

When we say CHEAP Mothers Day Gifts, the word "cheap" does not have to mean valueless or empty. I can think of 2 strategies to coming up with gift ideas for mom.

Mugs in general kinda seem like an overdone boring mother's day gift, unless you find something funny or personalized. It all depends on your relationship with your mother.


Thank You Mom Music Box

This is a very specific type of gift for a particular type of mother. I chose this one because I know it's something my own mother would appreciate as a mother's day gift. Your mother might be the same, or perhaps your mother may think this one is totally lame. Just an idea.


Mothers Day Cards

Amazon has all kinds of Mother's Day cards you can browse. It's best if you just click through here and take a look at all the options. It beats going to the store, finding parking, and standing there trying to sort through all the junk cards on the shelf.

Mothers Day Poems

A poem that is framed or on a plaque is a very popular Mother's Day Gift idea because it hangs on the wall and lasts forever! A very important thing to consider when picking out a Mother's Day Gift. Of course, it is nice to buy flowers or something, but flowers die. Get the flowers too, because they are a nice gesture, but accompany them with something timeless for the wall, like these poems or something she might wear.

2. Make Mothers Day Gifts
