5 budget-friendly ideas for Mother's Day 💘

Mother's Day is Sunday 10th March. Don't worry if you haven't booked or bought anything yet, we have some budget-friendly ideas that'll get you a 5-star rating from mum.

Mother's Day is coming up soon, and we've rounded up five of our favourite ideas for treating your mum which won't break the bank.

Spa day

Now, look, you can spend loads of money going to a fancy spa, or why not just do it at home with your mum? Likelihood is, she'll be just as pleased (or not, and she'll kill you...).

Get some face masks in, some Prosecco and some candles and off you go.

If you do want to go for an actual spa day, we've found one with 48% off the normal price with spa access, two treatments and sparkling cream tea included! Starting from £49 - have a look here.


They're a classic present for your mum and relatively inexpensive compared to some other gifts.

Top tip: don't leave it until the last minute and order online to get delivered (we've done this and it was not cheap), but instead, hit your local supermarket where you'll probably find the best deals.

Alternatively, try a local florist - yes, it'll be more expensive but at least you'll be supporting a local business.

A nice meal

What can be nicer than giving your mum the night off and cooking her a slap-up meal? This is one of those presents where it's the thought that counts but you can still get some decent meals from the supermarket or what have you.

However, if you do fancy treating your mum, but you're on a tight budget, you can grab a 2-course dinner at Toby Carvery for £19.99 - and that's the price for two people! Dad can pay for himself. Have a look here for more info.


Chocolate will always go down well and, again, rather than grabbing something last-minute, as chocolate keeps, buy some early before the shops jack up all the prices. We'd also suggest avoiding all the branded Mother's Day stuff and just get the regular chocs for a lower price.

Alternatively, make a cake with what you've already got in the cupboard.

Leave them alone

This one might be a little bit controversial, but sometimes, just sometimes, the greatest gift you can give your mum is some peace and quiet. And guess what? It's totally free too.

A nice voucher for 'one night off' might go down very well depending on how annoying a child you are.

If you would still like to get her something, here's a heap of stuff from Wowcher including spa days, meals, make up and the like - have a look here.
