Now that Easter has passed, it is time for us to move on to the next holiday. That holiday is Mother’s Day. Each year, people spend over $20 billion on Mother’s Day. Whether it is flowers, a visit, a warm meal, or something else. Here are a few ideas to keep Mother’s Day from becoming overwhelmingly expensive.
Budget Friendly Gift Idea #1
A meaningful picture. A picture of you and your loving mother on a canvas can be a great way to surprise her this Mother’s Day. Many companies offer you the chance to take your favorite photos and blow them up on a canvas or glass art. Including shipping, this can often times be done for less than $50, and it will be a constant reminder on your mother’s wall of your relationship.
Budget Friendly Gift Idea #2
Store bought flowers and a vase. Flowers are a tried and true Mother’s Day gift every year. The problem is that if you order them online it can easily cost you upwards of $100 for a bouquet. Instead, go to your local grocery store and pick out a dozen of their best roses. Between flowers and a comparable vase, you will spend a fraction of what the online flowers would have cost.
Budget Friendly Gift Idea #3
A bottle of wine. While the average person spends approximately $180 on a gift for their mother, you can get her a nice bottle of wine for a lot less. Chances are your mother drinks pretty standard stuff when it comes to the vino. A $20 or $30 bottle is most likely on the higher end of what she will drink, and it will be appreciated over a good meal.
