5 Last Minute & Budget Friendly Mother's Day Gift Ideas!

Mother's Day is fast approaching, and if you're anything like my husband (or myself), you may not know what to get that special mama in your life.

In my house, we are awful at giving gifts, and I'll be the first to admit it. For Mother's Day this year, I told my husband what to get me and he got it. We aren't big on surprises around here because if we want something, we usually just discuss it and buy it. We prefer more practical and budget friendly items, which inspired me to create this list of items I personally love and won't break the bank!

Let's get started!

A Night At The Movies

This is probably one of my favourite gifts to get for any holiday. It's simple, but a movie date is a fun classic that never gets old. If you're on a budget, a movie and her favourite treat is a great and simple idea. Also, if your mom is anything like mine, she won't treat herself to a movie often, so a night out would be a fun little surprise.

A Brighter Smile (For Less Money!)

If your wife or mom is looking to get her teeth whitened, Smile Brilliant is an awesome alternative to professional teeth whitening. Check out my full review and results HERE! I use Smile Brilliant every few months to brighten my smile, and a year later I'm still loving it. I feel like this is an amazing value because it's much cheaper than professional whitening, but provides the same results.


A Family Day Trip

To me, Mother's Day is about spending time with family. Check out my list of day trip ideas within driving distance of Fredericton HERE! A surprise day trip is a fun and simple gift that anyone would enjoy.

Parlee Beach

Out day trips usually include a stop for ice cream :)

The Gift Of Your Time (And Coffee)

Every mom needs caffeine! An inexpensive gift is simply taking her on a coffee date, buying her a new travel mug and her favorite coffee, or sending her on a coffee date with her best friends (or solo if she prefers) with a Starbucks gift card.

Fun New Fitness Gear

Did your mom just recently start going to Zumba? Is your wife a fitness fanatic who could use some new gear? A new yoga mat, sneakers, gym bag etc is a useful and fun gift. This year, I wanted a new lunch box because my husband paid for a custom nutrition plan for me as a gift, so he got me a lunch box to go with it and I love it.

My gym bag from Bentley Canada (I got this as a gift last year)

My new lunch box from Homesense, and cactus cup from Walmart Canada.
