Mother’s Day will be here before you know it. Have you been trying to come up with some budget-friendly Mother’s Day gift ideas for your mom? I’ve been racking my brain.
Mother’s Day is the perfect day to thank your mom, or any other mom or motherly figure in your life (mother-in-law, grandma, friend, stepmother, sister, etc), how much you appreciate them.
Mother’s day can get super expensive, especially if you want to celebrate more than one mom in your life. Giving gifts can be tricky sometimes because you want to give the person something special that they will adore, but if you are on a budget and funds are limited, you may have to get creative.
So I wanted to share some budget friendly Mother’s Day gift ideas I found that are under $30. Many of these ideas are cheap Mother’s Day gifts under $20. I hope that you will find something on this list that your mom will love!

Budget Friendly Mother’s Day Gift Ideas under $30
There are so many possibilities out there for cheap Mother’s Day gifts. So I decided to break them up by mom’s interests to help you find what you are looking for quicker.
For the Wine Connoisseur Mom
1. Bottle of Wine
This one is super easy! Choose your mom’s favorite type of wine, but surprise her with a bottle she has never tried. You could even make a cute gift basket with an assortment of cheeses and crackers to go with her wine.
2. Wine Rack
I love this wine rack. The rustic design will coordinate with so many kitchens. I like how it is tall instead of wide so it won’t take up a large footprint on the countertop.
3. Electric Wine Bottle Opener
Is your mom starting with arthritis in her hands? She would probably love an electric wine bottle opener! We even have one and I love it!
4. Insulated Wine Tumbler
I love these wine tumblers. My husband got one for me for my birthday last year and it’s perfect for keeping all my drinks cool when sitting outside in the summer. This rose gold one is beautiful.
If your mom is a red wine drinker, check out this decanter. It is so simple yet beautiful.
For the Techie Mom
6. Handbag Phone Charger
This portable phone charger will give your mom peace of mind while on the go. The rose gold is so pretty.
7. Tablet Stand
This soft tablet stand will come in handy for your mom when she is lounging. I have one and my 2 boys each have one and we love them.
8. 3 in 1 Smartphone Grip
This smartphone grip is ingenious. It will help your mom hold her phone easier, it’s a small wallet, and the grip turns into a stand.
9. UV Phone Sanitizer
Phones are so germy! I love the idea of a phone sanitizer, especially because of COVID!
10. Tablet Sleeve
Any techie mom who has a tablet is sure to love this super cute tablet sleeve! It comes in other colors if she isn’t a fan of pink!
For the Fitness Loving Mom
11. Yoga mat
This yoga mat comes in so many different prints. You are sure to find one your mom will love.
12. New Water Bottle
This insulated water bottle comes with 3 different style lids and comes in tons of colors!
13. Foot Roller
If your mom is a runner or walker (or if she is always on her feet), she needs a foot roller! I have one like this and love it. This set comes with three other massage balls.
14. Wristband Phone Holder
If your mom likes to exercise, maybe she could use a new phone holder. I personally prefer a wristband phone holder over an armband phone holder when I run because it keeps my phone handy at all times. I have this exact one and it works great.
15. Running Socks
Socks are so important for athletes! If your mom is a runner or walker, surprise her with a great pair of socks.
For the Mom Who Loves Reading
16. A Book
How about surprising her with the book she has been wanting? Easy enough, right?

Your mom is going to need a cozy throw blanket to snuggle up under while reading! This one is beautiful and is on my wish list.
18. Book Light
If your mom loves reading, check out this book light!
19. Book Journal
If your mom is a book lover, she may appreciate a book journal to keep track of the books she reads. This one has plenty of space to write notes about her books.
20. Book Ends
If your mom has tons of books and likes to display some of them, help her keep her books organized with some cute rustic bookends.
For the Mom Who Loves Beauty & Pampering
21. Z Palette
If your mom loves makeup and has tons of single eyeshadows or tons of individual blushes or bronzers, she may love this Z Palette! I had lots of older eyeshadows I never used, but I felt like I “needed” a new palette. I came across this and now I have a new palette of all my old eyeshadows!
I love having them in one place and this is now the palette I reach for every morning. There are tons of tutorials online for de-potting your makeup. Just go slow and be careful!
22. Makeup Brushes
A new set of makeup brushes is so simple but so useful! I have a few different makeup brushes by this brand and love them.
23. Bath Robe
A cozy bathrobe is a great idea for a mom that loves pampering.

Here is a gel nail polish set in a pretty color by a popular brand!

Pamper your mom with these aromatherapy shower steamers to help her relax.
For the Home Décor Loving Mom
26. Throw Pillow
27. Picture Frame
Find a cute picture frame and put a family picture in it. Check out thrift stores for an awesome frame that just needs a little love with some paint to freshen it up. Or if you want to buy mom a collage, I love this family photo collage. The pictures are so easy to switch out.
28. A Plant
Got a plant that is doing awesome that needs to be split up? How about starting a plant for your mom in a cute little planter?
29. Old Books
Check out thrift stores and antique stores for old books with tons of character your décor loving mom could use for her side table & coffee table vignettes.

Is your mom still using the same salt and pepper shakers from when you were a kid? Update her countertops with a new set of wooden salt and pepper grinders.
34. Tablet & Cookbook Holder for the Kitchen
Moms who love cooking and baking need a stand to put their cookbooks or tablet on so they can easily see their recipes.
35. Silicone Baking Mats
Every baker needs silicone baking mats! If your mom goes through her parchment paper like there is no tomorrow, this would be a great idea for her!
For the Traveling Mom
36. Packing Cubes
I think these packing cubes are so smart! Our kids’ clothes are still small enough to pack in our suitcases and these would be great to keep our clothes organized and easily pack and unpack. If your mom loves to travel and does not have a set of these yet, check them out!
