mother's day on a budget

You don’t need to spend a lot to make Mother’s Day special. In fact, sometimes the smallest gestures mean the most. Something as simple as giving Mum the house to herself. Maybe it's ALL the chores taken care of, or maybe it's not having to plan anything!  

Here are 5 simple ideas for Mother’s Day to celebrate the shero in your life without breaking the bank: 

1. Picnic in the park: Spoil mum with her favourite homemade treats, or even cook together. Then grab a blanket and some cushions and enjoy a relaxed lunch at a local park.  

2. Give her a break: Offer to take over the chores for the day, so she can kick back and enjoy herself. Let her indulge in her favourite activities without worrying about the dreaded ‘to-do list’. 

3. Indulge in nature: Spend quality time outdoors together. Head to a local park or to your nearest beach, and take a stroll, swim.

4. Virtual Brunch Date: If you can't be together in person, why not share a virtual cooking session. Plan a budget-friendly menu, grab the ingredients, and video call as you cook together. 

5. Hand-written note: Arguably, heartfelt words mean more than any gift. Take the time to write a sincere letter expressing gratitude for your shero. Something they can treasure forever.

Remember, it’s the thought and effort that count. Whether you spend a little or nothing at all, showing you care is what matters most.
