8 Affordable Mother’s Day Gift Ideas (2020)

Mother’s Day 2020 is looking like an unusual one because of quarantine. Instead of being able to take your mom to a restaurant or maybe any decently sized public space for that matter, quarantine has made for limited options when it comes to that realm. On top of that, it can be difficult to find a gift for someone who has probably given you so much. Even with this, there’s still various gift options that you can choose for your mom for Mother’s Day. If you’re looking for a great gift for your mom, you’ve come to the perfect place. 

Make her brunch!

Your mom’s favorite brunch place may be closed, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t make a similar meal option for her at home! Make her favorite breakfast/brunch and serve it to her while she’s still in bed! This will not only surprise her, but also give her a great start to her Mother’s Day.

Spa Day


Again, her favorite spa might be closed, but you can remake its setting as close as possible at home! Get a couple face masks, put on relaxing music, and set up a spot in your house for your mom to relax (or for both of you!).

Movie Marathon


Everyone has a certain type of movie channel that they love to watch with their parents. If not, you can spend time watching her favorite movies (hey, it’s Mother’s Day!). Make some popcorn and spend some quality time with your mom. She’ll appreciate it more than you know.

A Customized Present

Nowadays, you can basically get any item customized, ranging from keychains to necklaces. Choose what item you think your mom would like the best and customize it with a thoughtful message. There’s numerous places to get customized presents from including Amazon!

Edible Arrangements seem to be great for any special occasion so why not get one for your mom for Mother’s Day? Edible Arrangements come in various sizes and there’s an array of fruits to choose from so you can find the perfect arrangement to give to your mom.

New Cookbook

If your mom loves to cook, this is a great option. You can get her a cookbook geared towards certain types of recipes she might be telling you that she’s been wanting to try. Your family (like many others) may be doing lots of baking during quarantine so a new cookbook could have a new recipe for you all to try.



It’s a simple idea, but it can be a truly thoughtful one. Print out your favorite picture of you two and put it in a frame (you can even decorate it!). If you want to take your gift a step further, you can even write and attach a sentimental note to the back of it.

A Handcrafted Gift


Personally, my favorite gifts that I’ve given my mom are those that I’ve made myself. A mason jar filled with notes about why you love her or even a handwritten letter can make for the most rememberable gift. There’s nothing like a gift that truly shows why you love and care for your mom.


No matter what you give your mom for Mother’s Day, remember the best thing she can get from you is your time and love. Make sure to spend some quality time with your mom on her special day to remind her that you don’t just appreciate her on this day, but all the other days that she cares for you as well.
