What does your mother want for a Mother's Day gift?  Here are some frugal, yet fabulous, gifts that will show your love.What does your mother want for a Mother’s Day gift? Flowers and candy are nice, and many mothers will enjoy them. However, you could make her feel really special by giving her a gift that comes from the heart, was handmade, or evokes a memory. Here are some ideas for fabulous and frugal Mother’s Day gifts.

Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

Bake Some Cookies
Who doesn’t love a plate of warm, freshly baked, chocolate chip cookies? Giving this sweet treat as a Mother’s Day gift will bring back memories from when you were little and “helped” your mother make cookies. Bring over the cookies, and your mom will probably want to share them with you. This gives you the opportunity to sit down, have some coffee, eat the cookies, and talk.

Homemade Mother’s Day Card
Anyone can pick up a Mother’s Day card at the store, stuff it into an envelope, and mail it off! It talks very little effort. Show you mom how much you love her by making a homemade Mother’s Day card. It will be a one of a kind!

All you need is a little bit of creativity and whatever art supplies are at hand. Your mom is going to love your artwork, even if it isn’t exactly “professional quality”. The homemade Mother’s Day card is an excellent idea for a gift to moms who have young children. Have the kids make cards while their mother is at work or running errands.

Have a Video Chat
Does your mother live far away from you? Set aside some time during Mother’s Day weekend to have a video chat with her. Use Skype, FaceTime, or another program that basically lets you make a “video phone call”. You might not be able to afford to travel to where your mother lives. However, it doesn’t cost anything to get online and hang out “virtually”. If your mom isn’t tech-savvy, then try a “regular” phone call instead. She will appreciate the time you spend talking with her.

Crochet a Blanket
This is an easy gift for people who know how to crochet or knit. Who taught you that skill? Chances are, it was your mother. Making a blanket for your mother shows that you are thinking of her. It also provides a concrete example that you really do listen to what she has taught you! Pick some yarn that is your mother’s favorite color (or favorite brand). This lovely Mother’s Day gift will warm her heart (and the rest of her, too)!

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
