Mother’s Day is just around the corner and if you are like me, you have left gift buying to the last minute. Add a limited teen budget to the mix and the stress can be unbearable. How can you treat your Mom to something she will love and not have to go into debt to do so? Don’t worry, I have you covered! I have selected 5 gorgeous and affordable gift ideas under $25 CAD that every mother is sure to love.
MOM SCENTED CANDLES & MORE
Bath and Body Works is well known for their candles and for a good reason: endless scents to choose from, they burn clean and they last forever. BBW is crushing it this year for Mother’s Day with their beautiful 3-wick MOM candles available in Lilac Blossom and Praline Pecan scents. As I write this there is a”buy one 3 wick candle and get one free” offer available NOW so don’t miss out!
Or does Mom prefer body products? This little Pretty As a Peach Gift Set is perfect! Convenient travel sizes of nourishing Body Lotion, long-lasting Fine Fragrance Mist (3 fl oz each) and a perfect PocketBac (1 fl oz) come wrapped with a cute tag for an easy way to make Mom’s day!
LUSH, LUSH AND MORE LUSH
Though LUSH can be a bit tougher on the teen budget, this time around is different. In fact, pick Mom up an adorable pre-wrapped gift like this Showertime Bliss duo for Mother’s Day and have money left over for an additional goodie too!
Add a little luxury to Mom’s everyday routine with this duo of softening delights! The succulent limited edition Yummy Mummy Shower Cream turns regular showers into a sweet sanctuary with its blend of fair trade cocoa butter, Brazilian orange oil and tonka. When she’s through with her shower, Mom can smooth on the decadently creamy Self-Preserving Dream Cream. She’ll be singing your praises as she lavishes in her soft, delicately scented skin all day.~ LUSH
MOM – PINK BATH BOMB: Pop this fizzer in the bath and watch it release pink swirls of Sicilian lemon and sweet orange with refreshingly floral hints of rose. It’s the perfect accessory for a carefree afternoon: crack the window open, breathe in that fresh spring air, listen to the birds chirp and wash your worries away ~ LUSH
FOR THE TEA ADDICT
If you mother is like mine, she is all about that tea life. Nothing makes a tea lover happier than a new teacup set. This Perfect Tea Set – Best Mom Ever by Indigo includes one generously sized white porcelain cup adorned with tiny gold hearts and elegant black calligraphy, one white porcelain stir spoon, and one teapot-shaped stainless steel infuser. Everything rests on a grooved wooden tray and comes beautifully boxed for easy gifting. On sale now for just $18.75 CAD. I purchased my mother a similar set this past Christmas and she uses it each and every day!
SEPHORA – ALWAYS A GOOD CHOICE!
Most mother’s love manicures but sadly, buying her a spa gift certificate for Mother’s Day can be too pricey. Instead, give her the next best thing – Perfect Formula Nail Essentials Duo. These gel coat formulas instantly strengthens nails, and are formulated with keratin protein, which is the main protein that makes up the nail. The pink gel coat works to brightens nails and make whites appear whiter. With a protective barrier that coats nails so they can grow healthy and strong, this product works on all nail types, including brittle nails, peeling nails, weak nails—and even nails damaged by gel polish or salon acrylics. $24.00 CAD
STUNNING JEWELRY THAT DOESN’T BREAK THE BANK ACCOUNT
Most teenagers think buying jewelry for their mother is out of the question because of the assumed expense. Wrong! Avoid the jewelry stores and shop instead at H&M, Forever 21 or other reasonably priced shops that have loads of trendy and affordable pieces.
This beautiful Ornate Faux Gem Necklace, available at Forever 21, retails for $21.90 CAD. Perfect for the fashion-minded mother, this burnished necklace features faux gems in an ornate design, rhinestones, and a lobster clasp closure.
TREAT YOUR MOM THIS YEAR!
Most retailers have excellent last-minute Mother’s Day sales on right now too. Remember, even if Mother’s Day comes around and you haven’t managed to purchase her a gift, breakfast in bed will score you some serious points 🙂
