With Mother’s Day approaching on 26 March, you’ve still got some time to find Mum something amazing. With all the hard work our mothers, grandmothers, aunts, sisters and other women our life do, it’s only right to splash out on something lovely to thank them and show our appreciation! But when you’re on a tight budget, you might not be able to give your mum everything you wish you could for Mother’s Day. Not to worry – we’ve rounded up loads of gift ideas, all under £50.

Free or DIY:

If “on a budget” means “no budget,” you can still show your mother how much you care by arranging a day out together. Whether you visit a local park and take a walk, then have tea at yours, or teach yourself to cook her favourite homemade meal, she’ll appreciate the effort.

If you’re the DIY type, you can find tonnes of ideas on Pinterest for easy craft projects. Here are just a few:

DIY marbled mug using nail polish

Homemade lavender milk bath

DIY wine cork vases

Use our 15% off everything for Mother’s Day code at Baker Ross (valid through Friday 17 March) and put the kids to work making something lovely for their mum or grandma. Bonus: it will keep them busy for a good while! I really like the idea of kids decorating a porcelain flowerpot and then adding one of her favourite plants in it. You can get a pack of 6 for £4.23 with code. Another fun idea is the heart wooden windchimes (just £3.06 with code). Hang them in the garden or in a window and Mum will be reminded of the gift all year long.

Photo gifts:

A framed photo is always a thoughtful idea for Mother’s Day and you won’t need to spend more than the cost of a print (check out sites like Truprint, Bonus Print or Snapfish to buy prints for just pennies) and an affordable frame. Marks and Spencer have a nice range under £10, like this beaded turquoise frame.

Photo books definitely go down a treat with mums, so why not put together some highlights of the past year? Especially if you’ve got kids, this is an easy way to share plenty of photos at once and give your mother or grandma a nice book to display. Use our Truprint promo code to get extra pages on your photo book for free!

For something different, try a photo mug, personalised phone case, photo cushion, or one of the many other photo gifts available at Truprint. We’ve currently got a save up to 30% off code when you spend £10 or more, as well as codes for mugs, posters, and other photo gifts, so you can get a great deal on your Mother’s Day pressies!

Jewellery, beauty and more: 

I’m a fan of Not on the High Street for unique gifts, and this personalised pearl necklace from Lily Belle is gorgeous and affordable at just £32. Offered in silver or rose gold with a tiny pearl, you can add a personalisation of up to 38 characters.

A brand new mum could probably use a day out of the house to relax, so why not treat her to a spa day? Head on over to Spaseekers and buy a voucher so she can choose the location and date that suits her, plus save 5% with our code!

Whether you choose Mum a beautiful fragrance, a makeup gift box, or some hand creams, you’ll be spoilt for choice at Lookfantastic, and you’ll save 18% on your order with our code. I’m loving Vera Wang Princess, how pretty is that bottle?
