Mother’s Day Gift Guide: 6 stylish presents all under $50
Every year when Mother’s Day comes around, you’re challenged to come up with a gift that is as good as those homemade, cutesy cards you crafted for your mom back in your elementary days. (Which, by the way, serve as a great reminder that the best Mother’s Day gifts are thoughtful and personal.)
She cut the crust off of your peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, drove you and your awkward homecoming date to high school dances and, let’s be honest, has always been your biggest cheerleader in life.
This Mother’s Day, find Mom a gift that reflects her style and one that she’ll love. Oh, yeah, and be sure to get her a card she’ll want to put up on the refrigerator.
(P.S., Mother’s Day is on May 12 this year).
Here are 6 ideas for Mother’s Day, all under $50:
Bath caddy: This natural wood caddy can hold a book, candle, and, of course, a glass of wine. Basically, she can have a spa day any day. You can also personalize the gift with your mom’s initials. (Monogramming is so classy!) Perhaps pair the gift with a bottle of her favorite vino or a book you think she might like. (Red Envelope, $49.95).
Coaster set: These “celestial coasters” have so much character and come in a rainbow of pretty colors — from “pale sky” to “pink panther.” They’ll make a great decorative accent for a coffee table or side table, and serve as a subtle reminder that you’ve remembered all the good habits your mom instilled in you. (Anthropologie, $32 for four coasters).
Mosaic tile umbrella: With Mother’s Day falling in the spring, it’s a great opportunity to buy your mom a quintessential spring gift. (Think: rain boots, gardening utensils, soft blanket). We’re loving this mosaic tile umbrella because it’s cheerful and practical and perfect for those rainy spring days. (Cost Plus World Market, $16.99)
