The month of May will always hold a special place in the hearts of all mothers. There’s a special occasion in May that reminds all of us of our mothers and also the best time of the year for our kids to pamper us and demonstrate their love and affection for us.
Good and meaningful gifts don't have to come with a hefty price tag.
I believe most mothers would appreciate their children's loving gestures than the price tag of the gifts.
Therefore, to help you with finding affordable and meaningful gifts in the midst of your busy schedule, here are 25 items under $20 which would be wonderful gifts for moms!
Are you into shiny and sparkly items?
Even though it would be incredibly amazing to have a diamond ring of that size, I guess having an adorable shiny one on top of a pen would do too!
This would definitely make a working mom happier about doing paper work when she's wielding these diamond-studded pens!
Personally, I enjoy drawing and coloring. I find it very therapeutic!
So if your mom is also into coloring, doodling, and has artistic inclinations, then this mom life coloring book would be perfect!
What better way of relaxation and expression of creativity than to add colors to these humorous illustrations that speak the truths about our mom lives?
This keychain is gorgeous and a great way of reminding your mom your love for her!
I have two boys whom I adore and they are also absolutely sweet to me. Yet there are things which they won’t appreciate like going shopping and trying clothes.
I just brought my two-year-old out shopping the other day and I tried on some dressed. She went, “Wow. So pweetty!”
And even at this age, she notices when I put on accessories like necklaces and earrings and she will gush about them. I’m just so happy that I can share my girlish fancies with my little girl!
Well, having daughters is just different from having sons!
And I think this mother-daughter keychain is a great reminder for both parties about the special girlish bond that lasts a lifetime.
This 16-piece BESTOPE makeup brush set would be the perfect gift for the mom who loves dolling herself up.
This brush set is highly raved on Amazon and costs less than $10!
This book is perfect for first-time moms and moms with new babies.
It is a great companion for new moms and dispenses inspiration and encouragement which are much-needed by first-time moms taking on the challenging task of caring for a new baby.
Oh by the way, it’s written by me. =P

This is an adorable book with fill-in-the-blank lines for the child to pen down their thoughts and feelings for mommy.
I think would be very sweet for your elementary school kid to give this to you as a Mother’s Day gift! Imagine all the candid things that you will hear from your child through this book.
This is definitely a wonderful keepsake for years to come!
Many times moms have high expectations of themselves and, all too often, we beat ourselves up for our self-labeled failures.
But the truth is, our kids hold such high regard of us regardless of what we do. More importantly, God's grace is overflowing and we can always lean on Him for wisdom and love.
So here's a beautiful book of hope and grace for your mother to remind her of how awesome she is in the eyes of her children and in the eyes of God.
I used to struggle with having a consistent daily quiet time to read the bible and meditate on God's Word.
But I have learned that setting aside pockets of time through the day is better than trying to set aside a full 30 minutes because it can be quite distracting when the kids are around.
Therefore, using the daily bread to get in touch with God's Word on a daily basis has helped me settle in a consistent and manageable daily routine.
Would this book be the perfect gift for your mom to get her through each other refreshed with God's life-giving Word?
As I hit my 30s, I have become more aware of my face care regime and have a greater desire to look youthful.
But I can hardly bring myself to go for facial treatments because of the lack of time and money, therefore, home facial treatments are important for me! And, I believe, for many other moms too!
I love using mud mask because of the tightening effects and how clear my skin feels after use.
This Indian Healing Clay Mask might just be the perfect Mother's Day gift for your mom to keep her skin looking radiant and youthful! What's more, it's ranked #2 on Amazon's Beauty and Grooming category!
Doesn't this sound like a relaxing home-spa treat for your mom? And it's a pocket-friendly gift too!
The Vitamin E and collagen in the masks will help keep tired skin lively and healthy. A great way for busy moms to wind down at the end of the day!
This is a book that all moms who enjoy reading would love.
It is filled with inspiring, witty, and humorous quotes that will bring a smile to your mom's face and remind her of all the joy of motherhood despite all its challenges.
It’s hard to enjoy personal time often when you have three rowdy kids running around the house all the time.
I don’t know about you, but I can’t even poop in peace because my daughter wants to be in the bathroom with me!
After all the cooking, cleaning and messing around with the kids, I really look forward to having a long bath at the end of the day when the kids are all in bed.
Therefore, this bath bombs gift set would be an awesome treat for the mother who deserves to be pampered. Treat your mother to a luxurious, relaxing bath this Mother’s Day!
Of course, a day at the spa would be even more luxurious. But who says you can’t feel pampered right at home?
The sad truth is, arthritis doesn’t only affect the elderly. Moms and dads can be at risk too if we are not careful about the way we carry our kids.
There’s actually such a condition called “Mommy’s hand” where the person experiences pain in the hand between the thumb and the forefinger. This can be due to the improper carrying of the baby (think how you lift the baby under their armpits) or over-straining your hands.
In fact, my husband actually suffered this condition a few months into being a new dad. The joke was that the dad, not the mom, had the “mommy’s hand”.
For severe conditions, the patient might even need surgery. However, if it’s a slight strain or as preventive measures, this pair of compression gloves might come in handy for the mom!
This essential oil bracelet doesn’t only look gorgeous on your wrist, it will help you soothe and calm your senses too! What a brilliant invention!
For the mother is always so busy, whether at home or at the office, this essential oil diffuser bracelet would be a charm.
Most of us are aware of the benefits of essential oils. Instead of just having an essential oil diffuser at home, why not get a diffuser bracelet for your mother this Mother‘s Day?
One big step to being a calmer mom with the help of soothing properties of essential oils!
To be honest, I don't’ really like giving or receiving mugs are gifts because I already have so many mugs at home and I think most people do too.
But this is one mug I would be very amused to receive!
This mug says “I love you more than my sibling does” is adorably hilarious and would definitely out the smile on your mother’s face.
In fact, there are other funny mugs that you can choose from too —
“No matter what life throws at you, at least you don’t have ugly children.”
“Thank you for giving me life and thank you for not taking it back during my teen years.”
“Thanks for squeezing me out.”
These mugs are definitely wonderful gifts for the mom with a great sense of humor! And also a great way for grown kids to bring a smile to your mother’s face every day especially if you no longer stay with your parents.
I don’t always fancy drinking tap water even though I know we need to drink 8 glasses of water a day.
It most certainly helps if the water is lightly sweetened with a fruity taste! So this leak-proof fruit infuser water bottle is perfect!
Just cut several slices of fruit, place them into the infuser and you’d have refreshing fruit-infused water to drink on the go!
This is definitely a great companion for moms who are out and about often, for example chauffeuring the kids around.
The best part? You are keeping away from the sugars from fruit juice and still getting the vitamins and great-tasting water.
Many moms neglect self-care because they are so overwhelmed with taking care of their kids and husband and everything else in the house.
This bright and colorful brush set might just be the perfect gift for Mother's Day to remind your mom that she deserves caring for herself and having gorgeous-looking hair!
