As Mother’s Day approaches, I can’t help but sigh as the numbers in my bank account get smaller and smaller. Let’s be real: Gift-giving can be flippin’ expensive—especially when you love to be generous and give everyone and their mother (get it?) something over the holidays. For those of us who just can’t afford to spend hundreds, there are myriad gifts under $100 that will more than do the trick.
Whether you’re a self-identified talented gift-giver or not, there are so many Mother’s Day gift ideas that are no-brainers. I know it’s hard not to feel pressure to get your mom the gift she deserves, but knowing that it’s not about how much you spend, but more so about what you get, can help ease the tension. After all, mom would probably prefer that you save your money rather than spend it all on her. Plus, you can find a surprising amount of good-quality gifts, whether they’re food boxes, skincare sets or coffee accessories, for under $100.
Whether you need something totally unexpected and cool, a stylish but functional gift or something totally out of the ordinary, I’ve got you covered. These under-$100 gift ideas for Mother’s Day are practically foolproof. Check them out below:

Show Mom you’re paying attention to all of the hard work she does by gifting her these luxe leather gloves that will protect her hands as she gardens, remodels the house or does anything else that she enjoys.

If your mom loves getting gel manicures, but also loves saving money, this manicure set is the perfect gift. It comes with everything she needs to get an easy (but professional-looking) mani at home—stellar solid cream gel polishes and an applicator brush that will make her nails look professionally done. What’s more, it’s only $16. If she uses this just once as opposed to going to a salon, she’ll get major bang for your buck.
