Can you believe it, Mother’s Day is right around the corner, and if you are like me you are already on the lookout for affordable Mother’s Day gift ideas. Mother’s Day is an important holiday for me, not only because I am a mom, but it is also a chance for me to say thank you to my mom. Man, she deserves it, putting up with me all those years could not have been an easy task, and Mother’s Day is a day dedicated to her.
As a mom, I understand things on a whole different level and appreciate my mom in an entire new light. My mother is probably the easiest person in my life for me to shop for. Rather than focusing on a small thing that help her keep up with the house I try to focus on things that come from the heart, take time, or that she typically does not purchase for herself.
If you are looking for ways to find the perfect Mother’s Day gift idea here are a few things I try to think about, and a few small things I do that she loves.
Starting early is a good tip when you are shopping for any holiday. It allows you more time to look, and pay attention to little things that might be said like, “I love that perfume,” or “I need to get seat covers for my car.” I say seat covers because I am always talking about needing them, but I doubt I will ever buy them for myself because I am focused on things the kids need and want. My mom is the same way, only she does not buy things for me anymore, it’s all her grandchildren, and my little sister.
Think About Mom, and Get Her Something To Make Her Feel Good
Focus on things mom might not get for herself, but you know she will like, or might make her feel good about herself. That new wooden spoon sure will be helpful, but that new perfume will make a better Mother’s Day gift. It does not have to be perfume, you know you mom, maybe she’s more into body sprays, or wants new seat covers for her car.
Think Outside The Box, Don’t Be Scared To Try New Things
Remember, mom is probably going to love anything you get her. I can only speak for myself, it’s the thought that counts, and my mom is the same way.
My mom will not come out and tell you I want some new perfume, because it’s just not what we do. Put in a little overtime, and listen to little things she says when she is watching TV, at the store, or something along those lines.
You do not need to spend a fortune on mom this Mother’s Day. Here are a few affordable Mother’s Day gift ideas.
Pick Mom Up
My brother and I get together every single year, and make a trip to go see our mom for Mother’s Day. Even if it’s only lunch, we try to do something special for our mom. I realize this is not an option for everyone. Try to find something small to let her know you are thinking about her. Most mothers are easy to so
Breakfast in Bed
If you are able to start mom’s day out right, do it! Start out the day with breakfast in bed. Wake up a little early, toss a note under her door telling her to stay in bed until further notice, and make her favorite breakfast severed in bed. What an awesome way to start the day!
Focus on Who Mom is and What She Likes
I cannot speak for all mothers, but I prefer gifts that make me feel good about me. Sure things for the house are fabulous, but I prefer something that makes me remember I am women too. It’s easy to get caught up in the whole role of being mom, and forget about other things in your life, as your hair, nails, and perfume.
Being a busy mom is hard, we often spend so much time tending to daily tasks, chores, and we forget about ourselves. In my opinion, the best Mother’s Day gift idea does not have to cost a fortune, it just needs to be something that makes me remember myself, and the things I enjoy.
Love2Love is the newest fragrance line designed for women who love gorgeous fragrances at affordable prices. Each of the four scents comes in both a Eau De Parfum and Body Mist, and is available exclusive to Walmart. My favorite things about the Love2Love collection are that my daughter and I can both find something we like. With a 15-year-old, it’s not every day we agree on anything fashion or beauty related. We might not have the favorite scents, but we both have a favorite Love2Love fragrance. It works out perfectly, I even know which one I am going to give my mom for Mother’s Day!
If you are looking for an affordable Mother’s Day gift that mom will love be sure to check out the Love 2 Love Collection! There are four different scents available, and they smell fabulous.

Jasmine + Sparkling Mimosa – WOW, I have two favorites, and this is one of them. It has a nice fruity fragrance that smells amazing. I put this on the other day for the first time, and my husband noticed the new fragrance right away, and it made me feel great to hear him tell me I smelled amazing. Comes in both the Eau De Parfum and Body Mist
Orange Blossom + White Musk – I love the hint of orange blossom combined with the white must. Typically, I am not a fan of white musk, but the orange blossom combination is great. It has a floral musky fragrance that’s amazing. Comes in both the Eau De Parfum and Body Mist.
