Mother’s Day is around the corner, and there’s plenty of inexpensive ways you can show your appreciation. Continue reading to discover five budget-friendly ideas for this special holiday!
Make some memories: Celebrate Mother’s Day with the most enjoyable trip of all: down memory lane. Spend some time gathering and editing the best home videos and photos you can find. Include major family milestones and memorable events and/or vacations. Put it all together and present your gift to the Mom in your life on her special day. Then, sit back with the rest of the family and reminisce together about the good old times.
Have a family movie night: Spend a relaxing day at home watching Mom’s favorite movies together. Prepare plenty of fresh popcorn and all of Mom’s favorite snacks. Click here for a list of the best movies to watch for Mother’s Day!
Look for bargains online: If you can’t get around spending money on Mom’s gift, search for seasonal discounts online before spending a penny. Take advantage of your Benefits Plus® checking account with SeaComm, which entitles you to discounted gift and eGift cards at retailers like TJ Maxx, HomeGoods, Target, and more.

Look for restaurant deals: It’s always cheapest to eat your own home-cooked food, but if you know that Mom is looking forward to a dinner out, look for local restaurant deals before deciding on a place to eat. Your Benefits Plus® membership also gives you access to Dining Dough – which enables you to save up to 87% on dining certificate “e-codes” at participating local restaurants!
