Inexpensive but thoughtful Mother's Day gift ideas

Our Mums deserve the very best things in life. But maybe your Mum is the Mum who tells you not to get too extravagant for Mother's Day. Or perhaps you're on a tight budget and need to hold onto your pennys? At the end of the day, the effort you put into the thought on Mother's Day - is what really counts. It's still important to show her that you care about and love her.

We know it can be hard to find inexpensive gifts that still look awesome, so we came up with some ideas. They range from playful and fun to pull-at-your-heart-strings, but most importantly, they’re affordable.

#1 Flowers

We can't help putting flowers at the top of the list (sure, we may be a little biassed here) but sending flowers is always a powerful way to say: “I love you and thank you mum".

Mother's Day is the ultimate day to show your mum how much you appreciate and respect her for all she does. It’s the day mums everywhere should sleep in, be given breakfast in bed and a heartfelt surprise of beautiful fresh flowers. Fragrant and long-lasting flowers such as lilies are a great choice here as they’re generally inexpensive and she can enjoy them and their gorgeous fragrance for weeks to come.  

Our favourite choice is the pink lilies & pink roses mix. You get the stunning looks and the fragrant adventure, all in one! Our next pick would have to be a bright pink rose bouquet

If you’re looking for a local florist with the best flower delivery in London and UK wide, you've come to the right place! Roses Only’s next day and same day delivery will help you surprise and delight Mum this Mother’s Day. 

#2 Candles

We all still remember the little things that keep us and our mums connected. It could be a smell, a memory, or a picture to remind you of the unique bond you share.

This Mother's Day, give your mum the gift of fragrance with a beautifully scented candle. Candles are an incredibly thoughtful and long-lasting present. They tend to promote feelings of calm, warmth and happiness and the smell can serve as a reminder of how much you love her. 

Spend a little time picking out the right smell and don’t be afraid to ask her what scents she enjoys the most. At the end of the day, you can be sure she'll appreciate the thought you’ve put into this Mother’s Day gift.

#3 A handmade Mother's Day card

If you put a lot of thought into a gift for your mum or grandmother, it won't be complete without a card. The best thing you can do for a mum is to show and tell her that you care. And what better way to do that than to write a heartfelt message to Mum?

Take your Mother's Day card to the next level by making it yourself! There’s nothing more personal than a handmade card. Don’t worry if you’re no Picasso either, whatever design you come up with, she’ll surely love it and appreciate the time you spent creating it. 

Not sure what to say? Try adding a heartfelt Mother's Day quote to your message or write a list of things you’re thankful to your mother for. 

Want some flowers with that card? A rose bouquet or a lily box will definitely delight and surprise your mum.

#4 Mother's Day afternoon tea at home

Want to do something a bit different for mum this year? A special afternoon tea may be a great way to celebrate this Mother's Day. 

If it's a sunny day, why not take a picnic blanket and basket (full of delicious goodies) to the park? Don't forget that hot water flask for the tea of course! If it's cold or wet, hosting afternoon tea at home is just fine! 

The main point is that Mum is not allowed to lift a finger (unless to sip a drink) during her afternoon tea. That means, she can’t help with food prep, setting tables or cleaning up after. This party is for her, so all she needs to do is enjoy being waited on. 

#5 A family portrait

One of the great joys of being a mum is having your whole family together and creating precious memories.   

This could be a great opportunity to get an updated family picture Mum can cherish for years to come. Whether you take a new picture of your family or frame an old one, this is sure to make your Mum happy on Mother's Day.

Imagine Mum waking up to a beautiful new family picture and a stunning gift box of flowers

Whatever you get Mum this year, just make sure it’s from the heart. That way, you can rest assured she’ll love it!
