Mother's Day Gifts that Won't Break the Bank | WaterStone Bank

Mother’s Day gift-giving doesn’t have to break the bank (though we don’t know a single mom who would turn down jewelry!), but it is nice to give Mom something more than a card. Here are some of our favorite wallet-friendly Mother’s Day gift ideas to get you started.

Gifts for moms with green thumbs

Whether your mom loves getting her hands dirty digging in the garden or prefers to enjoy the scenery from the comfort of her porch swing, plants and flowers will remind Mom of you every time she sees them. Pick out a colorful floral hanging basket she can proudly display on the patio, a bonsai tree she can tend to throughout the year, or new gardening tools so that she can continue her favorite hobby.

Gifts for moms who need a break

Maybe all Mom wants this year is a day to herself. And that’s OK! Treat her with a gift card to her favorite spa or put together a basket with everything she needs to relax at home, like a scented candle, bubble bath and a satin eye mask. Then, take the kids to the playground and let Mom have a few precious hours to herself.

Gifts for moms who are foodies

Mom shouldn’t have to cook on her special day. Whether you help the kids make breakfast in bed, take the family out for brunch or have a romantic dinner at a special restaurant, make sure she knows just how much you appreciate everything she does. Even better: take over cooking duties for a month. And maybe clean the house while you’re at it!

Gifts for moms who crave quality time

Sometimes, the best gift you can give is your time. Spend the day with your mom doing one of her favorite things, whether it’s grabbing a hot dog at the ballpark, checking out a new art exhibit, or going for a bike ride and a celebratory scoop of ice cream. Your mom will appreciate the time and effort you put into planning her special day, and we guarantee she’ll cherish the quality time spent with you.

Gifts for moms who are hard to shop for

Ensure Mom gets exactly what she wants this Mother’s Day by giving her a gift card, whether it’s to a local restaurant, one of her favorite stores or a prepaid Visa that she can use wherever she chooses. WaterStone Bank prepaid Visa gift cards can be loaded with as little as $10 or as much as $1,000. It’s a great way to show how much you care.

Moms are superheroes who deserve to be celebrated every day, not just on Mother’s Day. This year, show the mom in your life just how much you love her by giving her something that comes straight from the heart.
