Mother’s Day Gifts On A Budget From Home Bargains

If you caught my post on No or Low Cost Mother’s Day Gifts, you’ll know I’m a firm believer in “it’s the thought that counts”. And it’s perfectly possible to find some lovely Mother’s Day gifts on a budget.

When I was growing up, my mum would receive the wonder that was bath cubes (usually took a week to dissolve one), scented talcum powder (now generally avoided due to health risks) or the kind of practical thing only my mother could get enjoyment from when receiving them as a gift – Marigold rubber gloves.

Love frame £1.99

I think this was largely as result of  being a child in the war years (mum was born in 1939) when glamour was silk stockings sold by the GIs in an American camp near mum’s house in Cattedown, Plymouth or, when these weren’t to be had, a line drawn down the back of the leg using an eye pencil.

She would be pleased to receive any of these though, from a selection available in store at your nearest Home Bargains.

If it wasn’t the wonder of bath cubes, we would occasionally treat mum to tea in bed, with the tea being brewed in a teapot and served in a china cup.  (You’ll find a fabulous giveaway for gourmet teas here).

    These are such fab ideas, and such bargains too! I love getting choclates and homemade pressies for Mother’s Day.

    Lovely ideas. Mothers day for me is more about things from the heart like a homemade card than presents! It’s always the thought that counts!

    Yeah, I’m awful and still haven’t got a mother’s day present. Knowing me I’ll do a last minute buy on Amazon! These are really cute ideas, I especially like the bloom vases

    I’d love to give my mum the Love frame with a photo of me and my brother and sister in it!

    You have picked some gorgeous things! Home bargains always comes up trumps for a nice gift

    I find Mothering Sunday quite difficult, because it is my Mother’s birthday just before and because she is for want of a better word, “fussy”. Being able to get little presents that don’t cost The Earth is lovely. I love things like photo frames that are so easy to personalise.

    I absolutely freaking love Home bargains! We have one round the corner from us and I swear by it for gifts. Some great choices! x

    Loving the necklace and the compact mirror. I would love to receive these.

    I love that mirror and totally agree, things don’t need to be pricey to still mean a lot! x
