Inexpensive Mother's Day Ideas

Mother's Day is less than two weeks away and let's be honest, mom's love anything that their children make so here are some creative ideas to get you moving!

Find a creative saying or famous quote and make your own card. This card is a good example - I find it to be hysterical personally. (available for purchase from doodlelove on Folksy - she has a ton of amazingly cute cards)

Perhaps you are planning to cook for Mom? Try making Overnight French Toast Casserole from Mommy's Kitchen - how appropriate. This happens to be my mother-in-laws signature dish...

If you are looking to give your mom all the pampering she deserves but without the costly price tag, considering making her a spa basket with homemade body scrub made with Burt's Bees body oil, recipe courtesy of Martha.

Do you have any fun and frugal ways to celebrate mom this year? I would love to hear them - please comment below.


  1. I saw the Martha body scrub on her site yesterday, I wish I could make stuff like that! That card/sign is the best, Mark Twain, can't get enough of that man! I think I'll just be making my mom a handmade mini-album filled with pictures. That's what she usually gets anyways hah oh well!

    p.s. I like the new blog look!


  2. Thank you so much! I think I might make the scrub this year and see how it comes out...
