Great Mother’s Day Gifts on a Budget

Mother’s Day is in a few weeks, so now is the time to get your mom a gift, or order one and make sure it gets to her. Here are a few ideas to make your mom feel special without making your wallet feel empty.

DIY Gifts

Making something yourself will save you money, and give the gift more meaning. Creating a gift with a personal message, or an inside joke will surely tug at Mom’s heartstrings. Add a nice surprise and incorporate a photo with your mom in the gift. If you have children, work with them to make something nice for all of the moms in their lives. You’ll be creating more than a great gift, you’ll be creating a memory.

Flower Pop Up Cards

Flowers are always a wonderful gift for moms, but this year try something a little bit different, that will last much longer. There are companies that create beautiful bouquets made from paper. If your mother is allergic, but loves the look of flowers, this is the perfect gift. They are becoming a popular item on Mother’s Day.

VHS to Digital

Home movies are a great way to remember the past. Video tapes filled with important events like birthdays, weddings, or “baby’s first steps” could be watched anytime people wanted to reminisce. With digital media more advanced than ever before, it would be a great idea to convert those old tapes to a DVD. Ask the vendor for digital files as well. This way those memories will be forever at your mother’s fingertips.
