Mothers Day gifts that wont break the bank

How often when asked what you want for Mother’s Day do you hear yourself say  “Don’t worry about getting me anything”, “oh, just a box of chocolates or something”, or “oh anything will do” while really meaning “I’d like you to get me something lovely, special, memorable, and meaningful, but right now I’m too busy to tell you what that is”.

For that reason, I decided to compile a list of  Mother’s Day Gifts.  Each of the seven gifts listed have been hand picked from New Zealand small business, run by mums themselves, are things that I LOVE and comes in at under $50 each.

So why not grab something for your mum, or alternatively if there is something that screams at you “pick me” then why not drop hubby and the kids a little hint.


Sterling Silver Personalised Cube Pendant and Chain $50

I absolutely love these sterling silver cube pendants featuring the initials of loved ones on one, or all sides.

Add a little heart to symbolise love, or a star to represent angels.  Where else can you get something that is affordable, so personal, and can be enjoyed every day or the year.
