Don’t break the bank this Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is a tricky one. If you’re looking to get your mum something special but you’re watching the pennies it’s often hard to find something that’s of good quality that won’t take up too much of your monthly budget.

Here are a few last minute ideas that won’t break the bank this Mother’s Day.

Check out the 99p stores

I love the 99p store. All named brand toiletries along with useful home items such as kitchenware, food, crisps and sweets. They’re also great for seasonal events such as Easter and of course, Mother’s Day. Just this weekend I purchased a beautiful mug for just 99p and a really nice Mother’s Day card, again for just 99p.  A lovely gift that will be appreciated by any mum who loves a cuppa.

Use your phone to get free gifts

If you have a mobile phone with 02, make sure you sign up to O2 priority moments. They offer freebies to their customers every week from food, drinks to Mother’s Day gifts. See below for some examples.

Get out for the day (with mums going free!)

There are freebies available for you to take advantage every day – you just need to know where to find them. Deal sharing website HotUKDeals has a section dedicated to freebies, which are found by its users, so there is no need for you to scour the internet or the high street for the best deals. Their users have found some great offers on days out this weekend with mums going free. Here are a few ideas for you to use:

Get creative

This year I made my mum a Mother’s Day card with a cross-stitch set from Hobbycraft, which was on sale for £3 in December. Not only did I have fun making it (albeit frustrating at times!) I know my  mum will appreciate the effort I made, especially as she was the one who taught me to cross-stitch when I was young.

Have a great Mother’s Day!
