As promised last week, I’m back with another in the Mother’s Day gift guide series, and while I focused on 3 timeless gifts earlier in the week (you can check it out here if you missed it), today, I want to do a more budget-friendly version, especially for those of you out there who are still students or are just starting your first jobs. Inexpensive gifts don’t always mean they have to be cheaper and of poor quality, don’t you agree? 😉
That’s why today, I’ve come up with 6 luxurious looking gifts that are elegant, as well as practical, without breaking the bank. Hopefully, this guide will be helpful to those of you who are shopping on a budget! So without further ado, let’s get started!
1. Gift Boutique Gold Leaves Tray Set • $40
First up is this beautiful golden leaves tray set! My mom loves decorating her kitchen and dining room with the change of every season, and with spring in full bloom, I know these golden leaf trays are going to be some of her new favorites as well! They’ll also make for such an interesting piece in the center of the dining table, and I’m sure her dinner guests are going to be asking her where these beautiful gems are from 🙂
2. Neiman Marcus Metallic-Trim Faux-Leather Bucket Bag, Blush\/Gold • Neiman Marcus • $45.50
Bucket bags have been so in these past few seasons, and I know they’re going to be just as popular this spring, especially in such a beautiful shade like this soft blush color. It’s feminine without being girly, and the gold details add just the right touch of elegance that perfectly exudes the grace and sophistication of a mother.
3. Laura Mercier Creme Brulee Honey Bath • Laura Mercier • $45
I’ve heard so many great reviews about these Laura Mercier honey-rich bath emulsions. Not only is the packaging super adorable, I love how they include a little wooden honey-dipper! 🙂 I love how luxurious this set looks, and it’ll definitely be a great choice for Mom, especially if she loves her bubble baths!
4. Jo Malone London English Pear & Freesia Body & Hand Wash, 250ml • Jo Malone • $40
My mom loves scented hand soaps, as evident by the different arrays of hand washes that decorate the countertops of all of the bathrooms in our house. I love this Jo Malone scent, and I know she’ll like it just as much as I do because it’s soft and sensual, but fresh and feminine.
5. Kate Spade New York ‘idiom – Heart Of Gold’ Bangle • Kate Spade • $24
Of course, one of my favorite choices in this guide is this gorgeously simple yet elegant golden bangle from Kate Spade. I love the little “Heart of Gold” message on the inside because it just fits a mother so well – their hearts are always overbrimming with unconditional love for their children. My mom is a minimalist (long before it became such a hype and trend), and I know that she’ll really appreciate this simple little bangle because it’ll match with just about any outfit, but at the same time, it’s so beautiful, understated, and sophisticated.
6. Caudalie Beauty Elixir • CAUDALIE • $49
And of course, last but not least, you can never go wrong with skincare 🙂 My mom has dry skin, so she’s always on the lookout for new skincare products that can help with her parched skin. I’ve heard lots of great reviews about this moisturizing elixir from Caudalie, so it’s definitely on my list of products to gift my mom this Mother’s Day!
And that’s a wrap on the 6 gifts under $50 that you can gift your mom this Mother’s Day! 🙂 What’re you all planning to give your mom on this special day? Any other budget-friendly ideas? I’d love to hear what you think!
