Of course, what your mom wants most for Mother’s Day is to spend quality time with you, but she also taught you never to show up anywhere empty-handed. So what’s a good son or daughter to do? Well, you can’t go wrong with a small token of appreciation that’s fun, useful, and will show mom that she’s always on your mind. Below, we rounded up 15 of the best cheap mother’s day gifts that still pack a ton of thought — because wallet-friendly and meaningful can coexist. And the best part: They all cost about the same price as that fancy salad you get for lunch every day, give or take. Looking for other ways to spoil your favorite lady? Check out our Mother’s Day gift guides for splurge-worthy luxuries you know she’d never buy herself, flowers she’ll fawn over, and of course, must-have Mother’s Day candles.
