Frugal Mother’s Day gift ideas

Mother’s day is fast approaching and you might be wondering how you’re going to treat your Mother on a small budget. Here are five frugal Mother’s Day gift ideas without having to spend a fortune.


Use some creativity; make your Mother a card with a special message on this day. This is something that will put a smile on her face. Use your computer, and apply the skills that you have learnt over the years and spice it up with some suggestions from the internet. Make something special for your Mum and bring out your creativity, it will truly pay off. Give her something that she will appreciate and at the same time you’ll spare yourself some hefty spending.


There’s nothing as memorable as photos, this is made even easier because we are living in a digital era and selfies have become the order of the day. Take a family photo or get a favourite family close up, something that your mother treasures. Frame it and present it as your gift to her on Mother’s Day. This will definitely put a smile on her face.

The beauty with Mothers is that they love simplicity, they are not looking for big things and they do a lot for us but expect the bare minimum in return. Doing something that shows you’re thinking about them goes a long way, a favourite photo or a treasured family photo in a frame will definitely have lasting effects.

Have a special dinner

If you’re thinking of taking your Mother out for dinner on Mother’s Day, you‘ll probably find packed restaurants. They are also likely to be charging higher prices as it is a peak day. You can either make an early booking or just prepare a special dinner at home. Get the whole family together, make a special dinner for Mum, and eat it together, she will love it. Don’t forget to make sure you prepare her something special, if it’s a favourite meal, make it a surprise.

Mother’s Day is a special day for Mums, we need to give them a nice treat, but that does not mean we have to go spending a fortune, we can still make her happy using the above and many more simple strategies.
