Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

Alayna Winters, Staff Writer

When you think of May, do any holidays come to mind? Maybe you think of the long weekend we get for Memorial Day, or maybe you are so wrapped up in the ending school year that none come to mind at all. One important holiday that sometimes can get brushed over occurs on the second Sunday of May: Mother’s Day. This annual holiday celebrates motherhood and is a day to appreciate mothers and mother figures for everything they do. This year, Mother’s Day will take place on May 14th, and a good way to celebrate is to do something special for the mother figure in your life. One of the most popular things to do is purchase a gift to show your mother or mother figure how loved and important they are. However, it can be hard to come up with ideas for the perfect gift for someone you love, especially on a budget. Since I understand this struggle, I have composed a list of ten sweet and budget-friendly gift ideas that I think would be perfect for Mother’s Day.

  1. A family photo enlarged and framed
  2. Flowers and potted plants
  3. A manicure/pedicure gift card
  4. A subscription to her favorite magazine or streaming service
  5. Something she would not normally splurge on, like high-end shampoo and conditioner
  6. Detail her car
  7. Clean the house
  8. Take her out to eat at her favorite lunch or dinner spot
  9. Homemade baked goods
  10. Handmade cards or art projects

Whether you choose one of these gifts or come up with an idea of your own, I am sure whoever is receiving it is going to love it! It is important to appreciate everything that mothers and mother figures do for us, and it feels good to share some extra love with them on this special day. Next time you think of May and its holidays, don’t forget Mother’s Day!
