Overcome Cheap Mother's Day Gifts

Finding the perfect Mother's Day gifts is no small task, but that doesn't mean it can't be both meaningful and fun--or that small gifts aren't just as great as big ones. Overcome the glut of cheap Mother's Day gifts and select a small trinket or token to give your mom that shows her you still put your time and care into thinking of her. Maybe your mom is a minimalist, maybe she truly already has everything after years of homekeeping--or maybe you're just looking for an add-on to a big, indulgent present you selected to completely wow her. Whatever your reasoning, there are plenty of inexpensive Mother's Day gifts to make your mom feel appreciated this year.

Shopping for Smaller Gifts

Shopping for smaller gifts lets you focus on what's really significant to your mom. Stay away from cheap Mother's Day gifts in favor of high-quality presents made of luxurious materials, appealing finishes and gorgeous silhouettes. Don't forget to add a little fun into the mix.

  • Go the traditional route with coffee cups, but make sure they're incredibly elegant with gold script, clean white ceramic or gently curved and fluted handles.
  • For a playful nod to mom's love of wine, give her a refined wine canteen set she can take with her from high-end brands like Yeti or Corksicle.
  • Pick out a humorous pool float to spend the days leading up to summer in ultimate relaxation mode. Shop palm trees, unicorns, swans and other whimsical motifs.

Selecting Add-On Gifts

You don't have to go big-ticket all the time and, if you do, because she's definitely worth it, you can still keep a few smaller presents to the side for earlier in the day, as part of a gift set or as a last-minute surprise at the end of the day.

  • Discover gifts that complement your larger gift. For instance, if you decide to buy her an incredible bakeware set, get her a hand mixer to go with it.
  • Cookware sets practically demand a little lighthearted fun, like a spiralizer wrapped with lots of ribbons and placed on top of the larger box.
  • Invest in a superlative piece of cutlery for her and pair it with a fine cutting board or steak knife set with her initials on it.

Choosing Unique Mother's Day Gifts

As you shop, you'll discover when you focus on more than just the price, you can create a gift package for your mom that truly reflects who she is, what she loves and what you love about her. Take the time to shop a wide variety of presents to make this year exceptional and special.
