Mother’s Day Gift Guide Under $50

Mother’s Day has always been extra special in our house because my mom was born on Mother’s Day and her birthday is always within a few days of it since it changes every year. This year, it happens to fall on it again so my sister and I have been trying to figure out what we can get her for both!

The biggest problem is: what do you get for the woman who has given you everything but asks for nothing in return?! It’s so hard to shop for her for any holiday, let alone 2 at once. Typically, since our mom isn’t materialistic, we try to get her personalized things with special meaning because that’s her favorite kind of gift. We also love to get her things to spoil herself with, because she deserves it! She is an amazing mom and grandma to my nephews.

I’ve come up with a gift guide to help anyone else struggling with what to get your mom, because I know how hard it is!

 

  1. PurseWallet (both under $35!!) This is one of the things my sister and I got our mom. She saw it in the store and loved it, and it’s on BIG sale right now so I had to share it with you guys! The floral design is perfect for Spring & Summer.
  2. Make UpMy mom loves Bare Minerals. Pick your momma up her favorite brand of make up to save her some time. Or get her some of the stuff you love to use and let her try it out.
  3. CandleWe had candles burning constantly as a kid to keep our house smelling good. This candle smells amazing and I definitely recommend it.
  4. Anti-Aging productsEvery mom wants youthful skin. Get her a skin care set to give her a nice glow.
  5. Pajamas. Who doesn’t love a nice pair of cute PJs?!
  6. Fun & Trendy EarringsDoes anyone else’s mom love vibrant things?? Bright colors and trendy tassles are a win-win.
  7. Nice RobeI think everyone should invest in a great quality robe. I wear a robe every day, they’re so nice to have for around the house. This comes in a lot of colors but is selling out quickly!
  8. Travel MugI think mom’s are always focusing on functionality. Mine only has boring travel mugs. Get her a cute one to spice it up.
  9. Throw PillowLet her know how happy you are that she’s your mom! Our mom is out of wall space for pictures so we’ve moved on to her couch haha.
  10. Throw BlanketCan one ever have TOO many throws? I don’t think so. You can stick with neutral colors OR get her a fun colorful one to add a pop to her living room.

 

Additional ideas:

  1. Personalize things: pillows, coffee mugs, blankets, jewelry. My mom loves things that are made special for her. Tip: Check out Etsy. They have such a wide variety of gift ideas, and plenty of them can be personalized! My sister got our mom some personalized throw pillows with my nephews names and my dogs names as her grandkids haha.
  2. Something she’ll use at home or on the go. Think of a nice throw for her living room or a nice travel coffee mug.
  3. A great book. Pick up something by her favorite author or from her favorite genre. If you’re unsure, ask your dad or check out her at-home library!
  4. Something related to a hobby. Gardening tools, cooking utensils, yoga gear, crafting supplies. Give her something to use while doing something she loves.
  5. A spa treatment. Every mom deserves to be pampered. Get her a gift certificate to treat herself, or better yet: book an appointment for the both of you and spend the day getting pampered together!
  6. Flowers or a potted plant. I send my mom flowers every year, but I know they don’t live too long. Think about getting her a bouquet of silk flowers that she can keep in the house, or a potted plant that will last a long time.

 

What are your Mother’s Day traditions?? I’d love to hear!

Have a wonderful weekend!

XO,

Dani

  • Today on the blog I’m talking about ALLLL of the places you can find affordable (around $100 and under) bridesmaid dresses! I’m sharing my girls dresses (and mine, too) and all of the options both online and in person.

  • When it comes to investment pieces, do you have any rules you set before you get something? This cardigan was definitely an investment but it’s one of my favorites and by far the softest thing I own. I do have a few rules for getting an investment piece, though! 
1. I have to be able to style at least 10 ways with things ALREADY in my closet. I can’t get something else in order to make it work. 
2. I have to be able to wear it multiple times a month. Something I know I’ll use over and over. 
3. It has to be comfortable. If I’m gonna spend a pretty penny on it, it needs to not only look good but FEEL good. I hate uncomfortable clothing! 
4. It shouldn’t be an impulse buy. I like to think about my investment pieces for a bit before I buy them. Even though I love affordable style, I invest in good quality things I know I’ll wear often so they last!

Do you have any rules when it comes to buying something you consider an investment piece? Tell me in the comments!
  • What are your thoughts on the off the shoulder trend?? I love it 🥰 right now I’m fantasizing about spring because we are getting more snow this weekend!! .

This is one of my favorite date night outfits 😍 I rounded up a bunch of OTS sweaters all under $30 and linked them in the @liketoknow.it app! Click the link in my profile and click “shop my instagram” to see them all!! http://liketk.it/2zmCg #liketkit
  • As I’ve continued to clean things out after my binge of Tidying Up on @Netflix, I’m really enjoying getting rid of so much. .
The whole idea is to declutter and let go of things that don’t #sparkjoy for us. This dress is one of those things for me. While it was great to wear for Easter last year, it just doesn’t bring me joy anymore so it’s one of the things I’ll be getting rid of! .
I’m going to be selling a bunch of my stuff on danithom.com as well as my other typical ways (join my email list on my blog to get my free e-book on how to sell your clothes for cash!). Swipe to see the full dress (and a baby Oliver!) 💙 And DM me if you’re interested in buying it before I post it!
