Mother’s day is fast approaching and just as the early bird gets the worm, those who shop early get the best deals. But don’t worry there are some items on this list that you can pick up last minute.
10 Affordable Mother’s Day Gift Ideas
There is something on this list for all budgets starting with the gift of fresh flowers for less than $10.
1. Fresh Cut Flowers
Groceries stores such as Aldi and Trader Joe’s have bunches of flowers for under $5 a bunch. If you want to put it in a vase for her dollar stores often have great ones for just $1.
2. A New Mug
My kids often get me a new mug for Mother’s day and I cherish each one. Some of my favorite mugs are those found at DaySpring. They have a great selection of mugs in the $10 to $18 range including travel mugs.
3. A Scented Candle
Most mom’s love a good scented candle, this set of 3 scented soy candles can be given as a gift to just one mom, or break it up and honor three moms in your life.
4. A Coloring Book And Pencil Crayons

Jane.com has great deals on jewelry and they usually have at least one Mother themed necklace of some type on sale at all times. I have a peapod Mother’s necklace from them that has each child’s birth color as a pearl within a peapod and I LOVE it. Check out their jewelry and accessory area to see what is available now.
There is a rare mom out there that doesn’t like chocolate but I think it is safe to say that the other 95% of moms LOVE chocolate. Ghirardelli squares are one of my favorite chocolates to receive as gifts because it isn’t something I would splurge on for myself.
If your town has a local chocolate shop you might want to check out their selection as usually freshly made chocolate is the best treat around.
9. Luxurious Bubble Bath
The key word in the title is “luxurious” don’t get mom a $1.99 bottle of generic brand bubble bath, get her one that smells amazing as she is. I haven’t personally tried this Deep Steep brand but the reviews on Amazon make me want too!
10. Wall Art
Beautiful words and bible verses posted throughout my home often lift my spirits on a down day. Do the same for your mom with one of the many wall plaques from DaySpring.
