There's lots of different gift ideas out there but I've been looking at some lovely options that won't break the bank. Working together with B&M Stores I've managed to hand pick a few of their brilliant Mother's Day gifts on offer that mum will truly love. I've gone for things I think mum's would really appreciate and also things which I would love and use myself. Read on then to see what I picked up for my own Mum and mother-in-law.
Mother's Day Cards
I thought I'd start with the obvious. A lovely Mother's Day Card. I always feel a good card sets the right tone for any celebration and I tend to lean more towards the cute and funny cards. They're just really nice and it's fab to make people smile. B&M Stores have a wide range of cards to choose from and most of them are just 99p. You really can't go wrong with that. I purchased a cute "Love You Mum" card and a "Have a Pawfect Mother's Day" card which has a little dog on the front. So sweet.
I love receiving chocolates for Mother's Day (or any day for that matter) so that's why I choose this giant Galaxy chocolate bar. It literally is massive and at £2.49 it was such good value compared to a box of chocolates. I like getting the most for my money, as you can probably tell, and this is such a lovely gift to give.
Having a fresh smelling home is a top priority of mine so there's always candles, plug ins or some kind of smelly dotted around each room. When I spotted these gorgeous reed diffusers I just had to get them. They're so pretty and sparkly and only cost £1.99! Such excellent value and a gorgeous gift. B&M also have a lovely mum specific diffuser and votive set for £4.99 which is really lovely too.
What Mum doesn't love a good old framed family photo to display for all to see? That's why I snapped up these amazing sparkly glitter frames for £1.99 each! They hold sized 6x4 photos but you can of course get the same kind of frame for bigger or smaller sizes which is handy. I'm going to find a lovely photo with the kids to put in these for the Mums. They'll love it.
We're all about the savings in this house, as the saying goes "if you look after the pennies the pounds will look after themselves". I think my Mum and mother-in-law would probably enjoy a little saving challenge too and what better way to do it than with a Money Pot. These money pots can only be accessed when they're full as you have to smash them open. Great fun! And if you fill them full of £2 coins I bet there'll be a good saving of a few hundred pounds at the end. These pots are only £3.99 each and B&M have some wine bottle shaped Mother's Day ones for the same price depending on what you prefer.
A good cuppa sets you right for the day so you've got to have a pretty mug to go along with it. I've starting collecting a little variety of slogan mugs myself as they're just so lovely and I know the Mums would appreciate a gorgeous mug too. From a mere starting price of £1.49 B&M have a wealth of fancy mugs to choose from. They of course have Mother's Day specific ones but I really like the two I chose - Good Vibes and Stand Tall & Be Fabulous.
After all of this I finally purchased some holographic large pink gift bags at £1.29 for two which fit everything in and altogether I spent just £13.59 per Mum. I think you'll agree that both Mums will love all of these gorgeous presents and it definitely hasn't broken the bank at all. If these gifts aren't for your Mum though don't worry. B&M have a brilliant selection of other lovely gifts to choose from. Why not check out their website to get an idea of what they have. Simply click on the Mother's Day link at the top of the page.
