Mother’s Day is a holiday where we all really want to spoil our Mother’s and make them feel really special. However we don’t always have extravagant budgets, which makes it harder to find a gift worthy of our dear mums. So in this blog post I have been set a budget of £20.00 for a Mother’s Day gift ideas challenge, to find a gift which will put a smile on Mum’s face.
I need to therefore find an item/items that come to a combined total of £20.00 or under.
What I Found
I first looked online to see what bargains I could find to put in my Mothers day gift package. I looked on the Next website and came across the Next Clearance section. Next online have a clearance section that has items with up to half price off. There have some seriously out of date/end of line stock, but there are some real bargains to be had also. I bought a lot of pretty jewellery for my Mother’s day present and also bought some handbags to put in my gift collection.
I next scoured the local pound shops to see what was on offer. There are always a few good items to be had. I actually didn’t find anything specific to Mother’s day that I liked. But I found a glass jar I liked with a copper lid. I also bought a box of chocolates so I could fill the jar and assemble it with the other Mother’s day gifts I bought. I thought this was a good idea as you can keep the Jar once you’ve eaten the chocolate and it can be useful for a number of things.

So here are my final Mother’s day gifts all put together. I want to show you a few variations of the same gift style, to give you an idea of how you can play around with things. All the items that have been put together are under £20.00

All these gift ideas are under the £20.00 mark. These are a few ideas, but you can chop and change to suit your taste. You can add a nice cup and saucer or a watch. Cater it to what your Mum would like. Shop around, there are lots of bargains around.
Now you could pick up a nice bunch of flowers for £20, nothing wrong with that or you could create your own little hamper for the same price and really spoil Mum. An with that the Mother’s day Gift ideas challenge is complete.
Let me know what you guys think. I would love to hear what you’re getting your Mum for mother’s day? Try your own £20.00 challenge and send me photos. I would love to see them.
Finally a Happy Mother’s day to all the Mums out there. You are all awesome.
