Mother’s Day Gifts
For Under $20
Mother’s Day is right around the corner and if you’re looking for some simple Mother’s Day Gifts that won’t break the bank then I’d suggest heading to Kmart. I really think that with Mothers Day gifts it’s the thought that counts. Even though I suggested some moderately extravagant Mother’s Day Gifts for myself in the form of experience gifts, I really don’t need anything more than a token gift to say that my kid’s care (or that my partner cares and takes the kids out to buy something for me!) And same for my mum, even though she deserves the world I think she’s happy with a little something to show I thought of her.
(Also how cute is my little photo-bomber!)
Dressing Gown: $19
Because dressing gown. These were super soft and fluffy. I don’t NEED a dressing gown because I already have two from previous Mother’s Days, but if you don’t have one these are lovely.
Ear muffs + eye mask = peace at last. Recommended for mums with small children.
Bath Products: $5-$12
I don’t really like bath products myself, I’m not really a bathy person. I mostly just feel awkward laying naked in water. BUT my mum loves this stuff and while I tend to prefer to buy for her from Lush or The Body Shop, sometimes when the pennies are tight Kmart has got my back with these pretty little packs.
Most Comfortable Bra Ever: $15 for 2
I am wearing one of these right now. My boobs have never been happier. These are so very very comfortable. I never thought I could love a bra without an underwire this much.
From what I could see all the books in Kmart are under $20! Awesomeness! I haven’t actually had the time or attention span to sit down and read a book for YEARS, but in theory a good book is a great gift.
If you’re mum still has a DVD player (My mum does. I do not). I highly recommend these movies if you want to make your mum sob uncontrollably.
CANDLES! : $6 each
ALL THE CANDLES! Or maybe just 3 of them for $6 each would look lovely and then when the candle burns down you’ve still got the candle holder for future candles. Because nobody can have too much candle related stuff. (I know I can’t)
Fake Plants: $10
Because nothing says I’m lucky to be alive like giving your mum plastic succulents. (Actually they would be good for me. My mum can actually keep plants alive. I cannot).
Wine Glasses: $1 each
Because you’re probably the reason your mum drinks. (Joking!) I would appreciate $1 wine glasses though because I constantly smash mine. I can’t have nice things.
Adorable Journals: $4 (plus $5 for a pair of rose gold pens!)
How cute are these? And you can also get a couple of rose-gold pens for $5 to go with them. So sweet for Mummas who like to write.
Kitchen Stuff: $2 each
I maaaayyybbbeeeee put together a present for my best friend from this stand a few weeks ago. She told me she didn’t own any measuring equipment. No measuring spoons, jugs, or cups. WHAT?!? She bakes!!! HOW???? I felt the need to rectify that immediately! So if you’re mum is missing a few bits and pieces in the kitchen this whole stand is just $2 each.
Bonus Gift – Star Wars PJs: $25
Soooo these are actually $25… and they’re technically men’s wear… but I want them.
I hope that helps you choose a Mother’s Day Gift for your mum, or maybe gives you some ideas of what to hint to your kids that you’d like to open on Mother’s Day!
