Ignore those Mother’s Day jewelry commercials. You know the ones I am talking about. The ones that imply you must buy Mom a $500 bracelet for Mother’s Day or you are horrible offspring deserving to suffocate under a pile of guilt. When did those become the norm anyway? It seems like every holiday has imploded into an extravaganza intent on making all of us broke, but it does not need to be that way.
What do moms really need? Some quiet time and relaxation. So how about some affordable gifts to help her do just that?

A relaxing spa experience is where it is at. Let her rejuvenate her skin in peace.
That whole spa theme might need a soft robe. Especially if her current one is ratty and stained with coffee.
A flower pot? Why not. living flowers will last much longer than cut.
OK, so we snuck a piece of jewelry in. Some inexpensive costume jewelry never hurt anyone.
Candles are always a win. Bonus points if it is in a fresh springy scent not reminiscent of Christmas.
Sometimes it takes a little help to relax.
Travel mugs for a latte? You always need a new one. Grab her favorite flavored coffee syrup while you are at it.
Bubble bath for grown ups. No fruity bubblegum scents allowed.
A pleasant smelling bathroom can go a long way for boosting your mood.
Maybe she prefers bath bombs to bubbles. It takes all kinds.
See? Show Mom you care with a thoughtful gift to help her soothe her frayed nerves from parenting. And you don’t even need a financing option.
