Mother’s day gift ideas for your mom for Mother’s Day in 2020. You can give to mom without breaking the budget!
Mother’s Mother’s Day gift ideas can often be stressful to come up with and stressful on your budget. How do you get the woman with everything something meaningful? (Especially when your budget isn’t so big!)
But, believe it or not, you can pick the perfect Mother’s Day gift for $20 or less.
First of all, stop worrying about how little you have to spend. Instead, start focusing on giving your time, talents, and love.
I used to be worried that $20 (or less) would seem super cheap for a gift. But, I’ve realized that the gift itself isn’t what matters. It’s the time and thought we put into it and the effort we make to be with our loved ones when celebrating.
Repeat after me: The best gifts involve thought and time
I’ve started focusing on making my biggest gift that of time. I try to be around (when possible) for important events. Then I give small, thoughtful gifts and write personal letters and cards.
Because, at the end of the day I’d rather have a mind full of memories than a house full of things! (And I want to help others see the value in this mindset!)
So, if you’re looking for a small, thoughtful gift to go along with your time, check out this list of 20 Mother’s Day gift ideas for $20 or less.

7. A Book to Get You On The Happiness Track
Is your mom crazy busy and doesn’t put herself first enough? This book has given me a ton of insights into how to start putting myself first and find real, lasting happiness in life. It is specifically targeted at helping busy people who define success through working in overdrive (and need to change that mindset), but anyone can benefit from reading it.
You can find Kindle versions as low as $10.22!
8. Quirky, Cute Giraffe Wall Art
If you want a unique piece of wall art produced by a small shop, this is perfect for you (well, for your mom!). It’s fun and budget friendly at $12.99.
9. Jade Roller
Jade rollers are super in right now! They’re supposed to promote beautiful skin and help eliminate wrinkles. While I’m not sure of the science behind it, this one is rated high in Amazon and has some great reviews stating all its wonders! Plus, it’s only $16.95.
10. Boho Macrame Plant Hanger – Set of 2!
These macrame plant hangers are shabby chic and on fleek! I like that they can be used inside or out on the patio. You could make some super cute looks either way!

11. 22 Piece Crochet Hook Set with Case
Let me just say: 22 pieces! For $7.59. It’s a bargain!
If your mom likes to crochet, has thought about crocheting, or would potentially like crocheting – this is phenomenal value.
(Maybe I’m getting over excited about this but the last time I went to Michaels and spent $10 on crochet stuff I think I got like 1.5 hooks! So I am overexcited about this deal!)
While crocheting isn’t for everyone, if it’s for your mom (or you even think it might be), get this set here.
12. Fitness Booty Bands (For Resistance Training)
Is your mom into working out? Or looking to get into working out but needs some lower impact equipment? These resistance bands look awesome!
I haven’t used this specific brand but I just started using fabric booty bands at the gym and they are a game changer! They don’t roll up like the rubber band ones do and they are much easer to get in and out of.
You can check these out here AND they’re only $17.99.
13. Fabric Scissors
If your mom sews then you know all about “the” fabric scissors!
Maybe this Mother’s Day is the time to say “sorry for cutting everything but fabric with your scissors when I was a kid!” These fabric scissors are $11.93, have good reviews, and can be a funny reminder of childhood days.
14. Package of 2 Turbie Twists
I love my turbie twists! These are awesome microfibre towels designed to wrap and tie back your wet hair. They are so helpful when you just get out of the shower.
I have quite long hair right now (boob length) so I’m sure these will work for almost all hair lengths. Plus, they’re pretty cheap. You can get these ones for $14.88.
15. Cute Bento Box
This simple, cute bento box makes taking a lunch to work super easy.
You could maybe even pair this gift with a few good lunch recipe ideas.
Find it here for $13.99.
16. Healing Crystals
Is your momma into natural, holistic stuff? Maybe she’ll love this healing crystal set. While there are insane amounts of conflicting information on crystals, I think we can all agree that they sure are pretty!
This pretty set will only set you back $13.95.
17. Potato Grow Bags
Is your mom a gardener? (Or likes to pretend she is? Ha!) These potato grow bags are super cool for gardeners and wannabes alike!
There’s a flap on the side of the bag that allows you to harvest potatoes when you need them and leave the rest to keep growing.
Reusable produce bags are a great way to reduce your environmental foot print and to keep your produce stored in a breathable bag.
I love my set and you can grab this one for $9.99.
19. Natural Sheet Mask
These lovely sheet masks originate in the beauty mecca of South Korea. I have some Innisfree sheet masks I love and I’m sure your mom will love having an excuse to pamper herself.
