Mother’s day is almost upon us and many people are frantically searching the shops for the perfect gift. Mother’s day is often treated differently from family to family with some making a huge fuss and others just perhaps sending a card or giving their mum a quick call.
You may feel pressured into spending a lot of money on Mother’s day and with prices of flowers put up high, it is easy to quickly spend more than you can really afford.
When buying gifts you need to think carefully about how much you want to spend and stick to it. Sometimes it is cheaper to buy a few bunches of flowers and make up your own bouquets rather than having one done at a florist. You may also decide to buy a gift bag and fill it with lots of little things that you know your mother may like.
You can often get bath bombs, face masks, jewellery and make-up quite cheaply from high street stores and create your own little goodie bag, much cheaper than if you were to buy a premade one.
The most important part of Mother’s day is the time you can spend on the phone or in person with your mum, not the amount of money you spend on a present.
