The Best Mother's Day Gift Ideas for Every Budget - Vintage Chanel Vanity Bag, What Goes Around Comes Around NYC, Jessica Wang Family //

I am here to remind you Mother’s Day is May 13th, which is about 10 days away if you don’t count today. I can honestly say, my mom is my best friend and one of the most important women in my life. It is only fair that I treat her accordingly! Life has felt so fast and rushed these last few years that I haven’t been the best at getting gifts ahead of time. This year, I vow to be different and won’t be be resorting to last minute gifts. If you want to get your mom something special too, I’m sharing the best Mother’s Day gift ideas for every budget. No matter what type of mom yours is, my all encompassing list will help you find something worthwhile!

Under $150

Kitchen Accessories: My mom loves the act of preparing dinner and sitting down together to spend quality family time. When I can, one of my favorite things to do is go over and help her prepare a meal. That being said, a kitchen accessory would mean a lot to her. It could be something like new spring dish towels, a spice rack or a new dinnerware set. Common objects she uses everyday will continue to make her smile throughout the year.

Plants: Sure, flowers are a no brainer for Mother’s Day, but consider getting a plant this time. I have grown to love giving plants instead because they last so much longer and make a beautiful decorative accent for the home. It’s honestly the gift that keeps on giving. You can even get a really cute, decorative pot to personalize it even more!

Perfume: I think any woman loves to receive perfume, no matter what the occasion is. If your mom has a signature scent, you can stock her up on that particular one. If not, consider what kind of perfume she usually likes and even what would match her personality best. Who wouldn’t want to smell good, right?

Coffee or Tea Lovers Set: If your mom loves infusing a bit of caffeine or tea in her morning ritual, consider revamping this procedure for her. If she’s a coffee lover, an espresso machine would be the perfect perk up! If your mother is more a tea person, a lovely tea set paired with an assortment of loose leaves would be so thoughtful.

Wearable: If you have an active mom, a wearable health device such as the Fitbit is a great gift. She will be able to keep track of her daily activity and heart rate. An Apple Watch would also be an amazing wearable gift if she’s a frequent phone user.

Complete Skincare Set: For the beauty junkie mom, a cohesive set of skincare would be quite the treat for Mother’s Day! It allows your mom to pamper herself on a daily basis, while preserving the beauty that she is. Trust me, this gift is sure to make her feel like a million bucks.

Under $500

Jewelry: All moms love jewelry and it doesn’t always have to be super expensive. High quality studs or a delicate necklace would be a thoughtful addition to her wardrobe. If your mom is more practical, you can always grab a fashion watch that’s trendy and classic.

Camera: Let’s face it, all moms are always taking photos! At every family gathering my mom is constantly snapping pics on her phone as if her life depended on it. If you want to up your mom’s photo game, consider getting her a compact handheld camera that beats the quality of an iPhone.

A Shopping Spree: I can’t think of any mom who simply doesn’t like to shop. This doesn’t necessarily mean go splurge on a designer bag or shoe because she could be low maintenance. Shopping can be anything – a new wallet, a set of workout gear, five pairs of shoes – whatever. If you’re able to spend $500, take her out for a day of shopping and let her pick!

Luggage Set: An updated luggage set is perfect for the mom who loves to explore. Every traveler knows that good quality suitcases are of utmost importance. Plus, she will always have a piece of you as she goes sightseeing in Europe or tanning on an island!

Tablet or Laptop: My mom has become quite tech savvy over the past couple of years. She kills time watching YouTube and reading the news online. A tablet would be a great investment piece for her because it makes for a better viewing experience. Having a larger screen then her phone to do all of the aforementioned would be amazing for her.

Handbag: What woman doesn’t love the gift of a nice handbag. As you know, I am a bit of a handbag junkie myself and I can honestly say I got it from my Mama! If you want to splurge a bit for Mother’s Day, a designer handbag is surely the way to go. If you want to save some money or look for a more exclusive piece, go vintage at What Goes Around Comes Around! That’s where I got my Chanel Vanity Case – and I love it so much!
