Mother's Day Gift Guide for Every Budget

I don't know about you, but Mother's Day is one of the hardest holidays for shopping! I obviously love my mother and I want to give her what she loves, but since she's a Sagittarius like me (fun fact: we have the same birthday), the only thing I always want to give her are vacation trips! Unfortunately that won't be possible this year, but I decided to create a gift guide that will reach every budget, based on what I know all the mothers I know and mine would love. Everything under $50, under $200 and under $500. Enjoy!

MOTHERS DAY GIFT GUIDE ON A BUDGET

When it comes to shopping on a budget this is my go to strategy: Find the most quality you can find between your  budget. That's why I recommend purchasing some QUAY sunglasses which are super cheap and great quality or an Urban Decay palette like this one. Also, a pretty and interesting coffee table book, a skincare set or high quality fantasy earrings are sure to make her happy! 

Focus on this: Quality self-care items!

Ahh... The magic spot! This is where you can find good high quality items and even high end, but cheaper! In this budget bracket I would recommend you get her a super cool hair drier set like this one, a chakra balancing bath salt set like this one if she's into wellness and even a fancy fitness tracker like this one by Garmin. She's a more trendy mom? Go for some Ray Bans, statement earrings or a trendy handbag like this one which every fashion blogger is raving about!

Focus on this: Have fun with your gift!

You lucky mofo! You get to do what we all want: Spoil the most important person in our lives! So if you're going to go this route, go big or go home! Ok? Give her that Gucci belt she has been raving about or even a wallet! If she's into makeup, giver the entire set of Artis brushes. Some statement sunglasses or cocktail ring she can brag about with her friends and if she's a fitness junkie, she will love this new Garmin watch

Focus on this: Spoil yo' mama!

I love spoiling my mom and I have a feeling you do too. As well as many of you, my mom is the most important person in my life and even if I like giving her really nice gifts, I find that the simplest and well thought gifts are the best. This is why I didn't just want to list a couple of things for you to buy for your mom, but instead I went to the most thoughtful person I know: my trusty friend/ co-worker, Valerie. I like calling her the "thoughtful queen" because she is the kind of person that remembers every occasion (big or small) and gives you a little something just to bring a smile to your face. She definitely takes the "it's the thought that counts" saying to a whole new level. I wish I was more like her. Don't you? 

Earlier this week she told me about this awesome idea of making care packages as gifts. She explained to me that she buys a cute little bag and gathers 3-5 things that she knows the person receiving the gift will actually use. How thoughtful and creative is that?! So, you guessed it! This Mother's Day gift guide is inspired by Valerie and her thoughtful gifts.

But before we get any further, here's a simple 3 step system you can use:

  1. One Bag
  2. One splurge item
  3. Two to three cute thoughtful items

Ok, now we're ready. Here are 5 examples that hopefully will inspire you to create the perfect gift set for the moms of your life:

As you can see, I left it pretty open so you can mix and match your mom's style. If you end up doing any of these gift bags please send me your pictures! I would love to see them. :)

XO, Elena
