Himalayan Salt Plate

Gift the Himalayan Salt Plate, $49.95

If your mom likes to cook (or, if someone else does the cooking and she just loves to eat good food), a Himalayan salt block may be a thoughtful gift. People love how they give meals enhanced flavor that can’t be mimicked by a frying pan. Plus, the minerals in salt are supposed to give a more nuanced flavor than table salt, and the amount of saltiness will be regulated by the type of food (moist food absorbs more, fatty foods repel it).

Mejuri is an Insider Reviews favorite, and the Canadian company will likely be a new one of hers as well. 

A coffee service that figures out what flavors she likes and gets smarter over time

driftaway coffee gifts mother's day

Gift a Driftaway Coffee Set, from $44

If mom likes coffee, she might love Driftaway. The Brooklyn-based startup is helping people figure out which flavor profiles of coffee they really love, and then uses that information to customize shipments of fresh coffee to them that their taste buds should really love.

91gqgxPs9kL._SL1500_

Gift the Watch Ya’ Mouth Family Edition, $15.99

You may be too old to glue macaroni to a card and call it a present, but your mom still doesn’t equate value with money.

If you grab a couple of family-friendly board games and head to your parents’ place for a night in with them and your siblings, that might be the most memorable Mother’s Day gift you could give. Bring along some flowers, chocolate, wine, or one of the smaller gifts on this list as a token offering as well. Then, offer to do the dishes at the end of the night.

An Echo Dot or Google Home Mini

Echo Dot

Gift the Amazon Echo Dot (3rd Generation), $24.99

Gift the Google Home Mini, $29.99

There’s an ever-so-slight learning curve in figuring out what Amazon’s Alexa can and can’t do, but once that’s passed, the Echo products can forecast the weather, read an audiobook, play music, order a pizza, tell Dad jokes, or any number of things Mom should find both helpful and fun. Be aware this isn’t the newest model, but it still works great and comes at a lower price point. 

The Dot is also kind of the entry-level Echo product, which is perfect if your mom is just getting used to the technology. If your family is already ingrained in the Google ecosystem for tech, you might want to grab the Google Home Mini instead for the same price. 

A subscription to try out new and well-loved beauty products without having to find or buy them herself

a birchbox subscription

Gift a Birchbox 3-Month Subscription Gift Card, $45

In general, subscriptions are some of the best gifts that you can give. A monthly treat can be a really nice thing to look forward to, especially when each delivery reminds you of your family. Every time an installment is delivered, your mom is reminded of how much you care.

Birchbox is a particularly good one for mom. It combines monthly deliveries of small personalized beauty and skincare samples with an easy-to-use e-commerce shop. Birchbox will send an assortment of highly-rated or brand-new items for her to test every month instead of having to go in blind to Sephora and buy full-sized versions. If she really loves something, she can buy herself a bigger size on Birchbox or elsewhere easily.

You can gift a woman’s subscription gift card for 3 months for $45, 6 months for $84, or a full 12 months for $156.

A new lipstick from a natural makeup company that she’ll love

44958338_068_b (1)

Gift the RMS Beauty Lipstick, $28

One barrier to smarter, healthier makeup is figuring out which of those natural brands out there actually do the job. One great and thoughtful gift for mom could be introducing her to a brand that actually works, and one which requires no research or risk.

RMS Beauty is a fan-favorite for its lipsticks on their own merit, with the clean ingredients as a huge plus. 

Childlike cereal for adults

Magic Spoon cereal

Gift all four Magic Spoon flavors, $39

Dagne Dover is also best-known for its thoughtful, next-level organization.

A luxe diffuser that smells amazing and she can feel good about keeping out in the house

Snowe_9.4Diffuser_Rinse_Repeat_H1_2048x2048

Gift the Snowe Rinse and Repeat Diffuser, $40

More stylish than a plug-in, this fresh floral diffuser uses custom-blended essential oils and will look nice, take up little space, and fill mom’s house with a relaxing blend of Calla Lily, green leaves, and dew drops. I actually have one of these diffusers in my own house, and I love the look and how subtle but effective it is.

A cleaner, more efficient multivitamin

ritual prenatal vitamin

Gift the Essential for Women Multivitamin, $30 per month

Ritual is most known for its Essential for Women multivitamin, which fills in the gaps of women’s diets and was inspired by founder Katerina Schneider’s own experience of shopping for vitamins while she was pregnant. Earlier this year, it dug deeper into its original prenatal health roots with the launch of its second product, a prenatal vitamin. Regardless of where women are in their life, Ritual works to build health with cleaner, more efficient vitamins.

Wireless charging pads

71eH683KvJL._SL1000_

Gift the Belkin Boost Up Wireless Charging Pad for iPhone, $38.90

Gift the Belkin Boost Up Wireless Charging Pad for Android, $31.97

We tested the Belkin BoostUp charger with several iPhones and Android phones, and it worked perfectly — which is why we ranked it the best wireless charger that you can buy. It looks great, has excellent traction so your phone won’t slide off while charging, and it juices up any phone quickly.

Wireless charging is traditionally slower than wired charging, but the Boost Up pad with 15 watts of power should charge your devices faster — so long as they support fast wireless charging.

We tried the service’s smoothies and really enjoyed them.

A next-gen hair wrap that uses threads finer than silk to dry wet hair faster and without friction damage

_13314898

Gift the Aquis Chevron Weave Hair Turban, $30

These Aquis hair towels have become extremely popular in the last few years. They’re designed with AQUITEX technology that uses ultra-fine fibers that are split into strands thinner than silk, so this towel won’t grab at hair cuticles like regular bath towels that break and damage wet hair — which is when it’s most vulnerable. It also claims to reduce drying time by up to 50%, which sounds hyperbolic until you’ve tried it yourself. This is the one I own and it works far, far better than I had even dared to hope. 

A cute tea infuser

61FaEFlp4yL._SL1200_

Gift the Fred & Friends Brew Bunny Tea Infuser, $9.98

A reusable smart notebook

rocketbook notebook

Gift the Rocketbook Reusable Smart Notebook, $24.98

Handwritten notes can help keep her organized and manage a seemingly endless to-do list. It’s a $30 notebook, but surprisingly handy. It sends notes to the cloud so she can access them from her devices later, and wipes clean with a damp cloth.

A rose-scented roll-on perfume she can carry with her and reapply when she’s on the go

a rose perfume oil

Gift the Kai Rose Perfume Oil, $50

Kai’s rose perfume oil features a blend of gardenia wrapped in white exotics, layered with rose absolute, and comes in a small, easy-to-use roll-on vial. The rose scent packs an extra punch while remaining subtle and not overwhelming. We’re big fans of the beauty brand, and we have a feeling your mom will like it, too. 

A keepsake ‘What I love About Mom’ book

9

“What I Love About Mom by Me” Book, $9.95

You know she’s the greatest, but maybe you haven’t been telling her that enough. Fill this little keepsake book with all the reasons you love her, so she can always be reminded of how appreciated she is.

stitch fix review 2

mother's day gifts under $50

  • Mother’s Day is a great opportunity to show thanks for your mom or guardian with a thoughtful gift.
  • You don’t have to spend a fortune – there are plenty of great gifts for mom under $50.
  • We did the tough digging and found 51 of the best gifts for Mother’s Day under $50.

While nothing shows your appreciation for mom like your year-round love and support, a Mother’s Day gift she’ll love is always a thoughtful gesture. While most of us have outgrown the years where a misspelled card made out of raw noodles was pure magic, not all of us have the budget to spoil Mom with fancy jewelry or a big-ticket item like a new car.

Thankfully, most of the mom figures I know genuinely prefer something that says how much you love her, or how actively you thought about her needs, more than a high price tag. There are plenty of wonderful Mother’s Day gift ideas to be found under $50 – and 51 of them are listed for you below.

Here are 51 of the best mother’s day gifts under $50

A cheerful vase

A lightweight yoga mat

Manduka Eko Superlite Travel Yoga Mat

Gift a Manduka Eko Superlite Travel Yoga Mat, $45

Manduka is known for making some of the best yoga products, and this five-star-rated mat is no exception. If she loves fitting a yoga class into her busy schedule, she’ll appreciate this mat. Not only does it have a great grip and come in plenty of fun colors, but it’s super light, so she can easily tote it around with her to class and back. 

A box of unique Japanese snacks

bokksu thumb

Gift the Bokksu Classic Gift Box, from $39.95 per month

If she loves to travel and experience new cultures through food, she’ll love receiving a Bokksu Box. The classic gift box is filled with a selection of 20-25 unique Japanese snacks, sourced directly from artisan makers in Japan, so she can get a little more adventurous with her snacking. 

A pure silk sleep mask

slip sleep mask

Gift the Slip Pure Silk Sleep Mask, $50

Give Mom a little bit of luxury with this silk sleep mask. Not only will it block out light and feel great on her skin, but it’s made with Slip’s proprietary Slipsilk which won’t tug or leave creases on her skin. 

A luxurious body moisturizer

necessaire

Gift the Nécessaire Body Lotion, $25

If body lotion doesn’t sound that exciting to her, Nécessaire’s version will probably change her mind. The formula is simple — clean ingredients, full of nourishing vitamins, and quick-absorbing. It’s so good we’ve fought over it

A “book of the month” membership she can look forward to every month

57164127_10157373944508856_7889762585250103296_o

Gift a Book of the Month Membership, from three months for $49.99

If she loves to read and isn’t ready to go 100% digital, we can’t recommend a Book of the Month membership highly enough. Each month, she’ll find a curated selection of the best new hardcover titles spanning a broad range of genres. The mix of both fiction and nonfiction titles is sure to impress even the pickiest bibliophiles. 

A beautiful bouquet of farm-fresh flowers she can keep in the house

a bouquet of flowers

Gift a bouquet from The Bouqs, from $36

You can grab her a potted plant if she enjoys caring for them over time, but another great option is sending her a beautiful bouquet of flowers that she can enjoy for a few weeks with minimal effort and then throw out. If you want to get her something more lasting, you can pick up a vase ($10-$249), too. 

A Himalayan salt block she can use for just about every use cooking

Himalayan Salt Plate

Gift the Himalayan Salt Plate, $49.95

If your mom likes to cook (or, if someone else does the cooking and she just loves to eat good food), a Himalayan salt block may be a thoughtful gift. People love how they give meals enhanced flavor that can’t be mimicked by a frying pan. Plus, the minerals in salt are supposed to give a more nuanced flavor than table salt, and the amount of saltiness will be regulated by the type of food (moist food absorbs more, fatty foods repel it).

Himalayan salt has a very stable crystal structure, which allows it to hold a temperature very well. Mom can chill it to serve as a platter for sushi or heat it over the grill or stovetop to cook veggies. 

A good-looking, efficient cold brew bottle

a cold brew bottle

Gift the Blue Bottle Hario Cold Brew Bottle, $35

Does mom love cold brew? Grab her this elegant glass cold brew bottle from the popular coffee startup Blue Bottle. It’s slim enough to fit in the fridge without displacing anything else, and it looks much nicer than the plastic versions you’ll find at a similar price point on Amazon. 

A pro-level photo book

artifact uprising, $15+

Gift an Artifact Uprising Custom Softcover Photo Book, from $15

These beautifully designed photo books look just like a personal magazine, curated by you for her — and full of 30 pages of your best and most cherished memories and people. 

A lotion that uses technology to auto-regulate moisture throughout the day

beautycounter

Gift the Beautycounter Countermatch Adaptive Moisture Lotion, $49

Beautycounter is beloved equally for its clean beauty mission and consistently excellent and award-winning products.

This bestselling lotion not only provides up to 24-hours of hydration but actually self-regulates throughout the day to provide the right level of moisture. The formula uses breakthrough Bio-Mimic Technology to match — and mimic — the structure of skin. 

A scratch-off that benefits charities

lottolove

Give a card from LottoLove, from $5

When you scratch off a card from LottoLove, you won’t win any money. Instead, you “win” a charitable prize that’s donated to someone in need. There are four possible prizes, which help provide clean water, solar light, nutritious meals, or literacy tools. Each card costs just $4.95, but gives back in invaluable ways. To date, LottoLove and its charitable partners have impacted lives in over 60 countries.

It has a long primary handle and a shorter secondary handle for steadying the pan as you carry or move it, and it has good depth and a wide surface perfect for searing steaks. The large pour spouts on either side make it easy to rid the pan of grease without any mess. It’s also our top overall pick in our guide to the best-cast iron skillets. 

A set of sheet masks to relax and keep her skin hydrated

711ewT9T2kL._SL1500_

Gift a Too Cool for School Egg Cream Mask, $4.20

Make sure she has the fun tools to take a night off whenever she wants. These five sheet masks will hydrate her skin and keep it looking its best, but they’re also just a lot of fun to put on after a long day — and it’s nice knowing they were a gift rather than something she had to go out and buy herself. 

Framed memories

fldjgfdlhj

Gift a Framebridge custom-framed art or photo gift, from $39

Moms really do love looking at pictures of their kids. Why not make an impactful gift by framing a family memory or a great picture of the two of you? Plus, sites like Framebridge make it easier by letting you customize each step of the process online instead of grabbing a frame from the store and having to figure out how to correctly size and print something yourself. Framebridge will guide you through the process and let you know if the resolution is high enough to look good on mom’s mantle. 

A pair of beautiful earrings she can wear with anything

M_earring_midi_hoops_V3 (1)

Gift a pair of Mejuri Midi Hoops, $50

There’s something satisfying about being able to afford to give your mom something delicate, luxurious, and special. Too often our moms put us first and themselves last, and something that isn’t strictly “necessary” is a good way to make sure they feel pampered from time to time.

Mejuri is an Insider Reviews favorite, and the Canadian company will likely be a new one of hers as well. 

A coffee service that figures out what flavors she likes and gets smarter over time

driftaway coffee gifts mother's day

Gift a Driftaway Coffee Set, from $44

If mom likes coffee, she might love Driftaway. The Brooklyn-based startup is helping people figure out which flavor profiles of coffee they really love, and then uses that information to customize shipments of fresh coffee to them that their taste buds should really love.

The first delivery will be a tasting kit to help determine what flavors she loves most. From there, the service will get smarter at catering to her preferences every time. 

A silk pillowcase

silk pillow case

Gift the Celestial Silk Pillowcase, from $36.99

Silk pillowcases reduce frizz and damage to hair and make it look shiny and healthy. They also reduce the likelihood of forming new wrinkles and they won’t absorb skincare products as easily as cotton pillowcases. 

This particular Celestial Silk pillowcase is one of the internet’s hidden gems. It’s $40 on Amazon and we rated it the best silk pillowcase you can buy in the Insider Reviews buying guide. Read a personal review here

Dedicated makeup towels

mother's day gifts under $50

Gift the Weezie Makeup Towels, $40

We’ve personally discovered Weezie’s makeup towels are unexpectedly useful, and so will your giftee. These small, dark towels won’t reveal unsightly makeup stains and they come in three cute embroidered styles.

71ky5q7yBrL._SL1500_

Be aware this isn’t the newest model, but it still works great and comes at a lower price point. 

The Dot is also kind of the entry-level Echo product, which is perfect if your mom is just getting used to the technology. If your family is already ingrained in the Google ecosystem for tech, you might want to grab the Google Home Mini instead for the same price.

Becoming a mother is, indeed, a life-changing experience, and with it, comes a new set of responsibilities and new items needed to make life easier.
