Mother’s Day gifts: 20 gift ideas $50 and under

Mother’s Day is just around the corner — May 12 to be exact — and if you’re still trying to figure out what to get Mom, we’re here to help you narrow down the options.

Shopping for the woman who seems to have it all can be tricky and over the years, probably repetitive. While there are the classic treats for Mother’s Day like brunch, spas and some type of jewelry, some polls suggests moms want to keep things simple.

According to a recent poll by Amazon Canada, 60 per cent of mothers want to spend quality time with their loved ones and 83 per cent would prefer a gift homemade.

But that doesn’t mean you can’t spoil her. Her are 20 gift ideas for $50 and under for Mother’s Day.
