Mother’s Day Gift Guide Under $25

The 2 products I’ve loved the longest

Mother’s Day is around the corner and I’m lucky enough to actually be with my mom on that day! She, my sister, and I are heading down to South Carolina for the weekend as a “last hurrah” before my sister gets married this summer.

The three of us used to do a trip together almost annually, but since I started having kids it’s gotten a little bit more complicated. I’m so glad this trip worked and I’m looking very forward to it!

We usually don’t buy each other gifts for Mother’s Day, but in case that is something you do, I found a good variety of things that are all under $25 to consider.

one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine

I’m really into plants right now, so a new plant would be a fun gift in my mind. Head to your local farmers market and you’ll likely fine something beautiful. We have an enormous farmers market here in Raleigh that is open 7 days a week, and it’s one of my favorite places to wander.

I recently bought a lemon tree, and if my mom was within driving distance I would have bought one for her too. Some farmers market flowers may just have to do for the time being!

I’ve recently discovered St. Tropez gradual tanning lotion and love it. If your mom has an upcoming trip or something special on her calendar, this could be a fun “pampering” type of gift that she may not otherwise buy herself.

I tend to lean towards the practical end of the spectrum when buying gifts, but I also really try to think about something that the recipient may not buy for herself but would enjoy.

p.s. Have you checked out Playful yet? How cute is this bag?

Does this gradual tanner have a scent?

These are great suggestions! I keep having semi-good gift ideas, but nothing I think my mother-in-law will love. It will probably come to me the day before Mother’s Day!

The mousse bronzer of this line is the BEST! Use a mitt and you have an instant tan that lasts 3 or 4 days.

I’m excited to learn St. Tropez has a gradual self tanner. I’m looking forward to trying it!

I might have to drop some hints to get that St. Tropez gradual tanning lotion for mother’s day. My legs are albino white!
