We love our moms to the moon and back, but we’re sticking a little closer to home this Mother’s Day. Even as we’re keeping a tight budget, we can still give Mom something special that will warm her heart without spending a ton. We’ve found 20 gifts for the important mothers in your life that all cost less than $50.
Uniqlo x Marimekko UV Protection Paper Hat ($29.90; uniqlo.com)
From the new collab between Uniqlo and Finnish design house Marimekko, this flattering and adjustable sun-protection hat will be her new summer go-to. Available in three colorways.
Solo New York Peak Backpack ($31.99; target.com)
Backpacks don’t have to be boring, and we think this chic bag is anything but. It’s big enough to hold her 13-inch laptop, but streamlined to prevent it from feeling bulky. She can pack it up for an extended chill session in the backyard or for a trip beyond her home base when travel and social restrictions are lifted.

This delicate bracelet features her zodiac constellation in sparkling gems. We love how dainty it is and also how personal and meaningful.

Our editors think homemade is almost always better, especially when it comes to tortillas. This kit contains a press, a cloth to keep tortillas warm and an instruction booklet. It’ll be a welcome addition to her home-cooking arsenal.
Lasko MyHeat Personal Heater ($19.71; amazon.com)
For the mom who is always turning up the heat, we love this compact 200-watt heater that will keep her toasty without using a lot of energy. It’s small enough to tuck under her desk or place near her favorite lounging spot at home.
Well Told Stemless Wine Glasses ($18 each; etsy.com)
For a dose of nostalgia, our editors pick these stemless wine glasses that are etched with a map of your mom’s favorite city, the city she calls home, or any other place that holds special meaning.
