Mother’s Day is just around the corner – and if you’re looking to spoil someone, you might’ve discovered that it’s not necessarily in your budget to do so. If you’re tight on funds this year, these tips are perfect to help you celebrate your Mother’s Day on a budget!
First and foremost, DIY for all of your Mother’s Day gifts! DIY gifts are perfect for Mother’s Day on a budget because they’re thoughtful AND affordable! Every mother appreciates a handmade, well thought out, a creative gift so it’s something that is perfect for the day and will be totally appreciated. There are tons of DIY Mother’s Day gifts on Pinterest ranging from something simple like a card and a personalized photo mug (or Mugs Photo Personnalisés as they’d say in France) to more extravagant things like DIY home decor. No matter what you choose, the thought is what counts – so spoil the mothers in your life with something handmade!
Another way to spoil the mothers in your life is by making a dinner for them. Instead of going out to dinner and racking up a huge bill – make a homemade dinner and make it a special night! Give the gifts you made or bought over dinner and spend some nice quality time together instead of being distracted in a restaurant. The mothers in your life will appreciate the peace and quiet and thoughtful dinner!
You also have the option of setting up a rain-check! If something recently came up and you’re just not able to do anything special like you’d like, set up a rain-check for when you’ll be able to! Most people would appreciate the thought and while they may just tell you not to worry about it, you can offer it as an option to spend time with the mothers in your life! After all, quality time and the thought is what is most important to most mothers!
Hike or Picnic
If you have an outdoorsy mom, consider going for a hike together or having a picnic! Homemade dinners inside are nice, but if you have an outdoorsy mom – something outdoors will be more suitable. Hiking and picnics are basically free if you don’t count the food cost and a great way to spend some time together and let the mothers in your life know they’re very appreciated!
While material things can be nice and appreciated, there are many others way to spoil someone on Mother’s Day on a budget. Ultimately, it’s up to you to decide what is most appropriate for your relationship and your budget, but at the end of the day – the thought behind it is what counts the most.
