Inexpensive Mother’s Day Gifts for a Crowd

by Alli

I enjoy putting together Mother’s Day favors for all the moms at my church. I’m on a budget so I have to find creative ways to honor our moms without spending a fortune. That’s why I’m always on the lookout for Inexpensive Mother’s Day Gifts for a Crowd.

Inexpensive Mother's Day Gift Ideas for a Crowd

I’d love to do my best Oprah impression and say, “you get a car and you get a car . . .”  Unfortunately, I can’t give away cars but I can give small gifts to let the moms know how much we honor and appreciate them all.

Every year, I have more moms to buy for. Growth is a good thing, but it also means I have to be frugal while I’m on the hunt for the best gifts.

Also, I want to give moms a gift they will actually use. I don’t want to grab cheap gifts that will be thrown away.

I also don’t like to reinvent the wheel. So, when I think of a cute idea, I immediately search for free printables from creative bloggers. Saving time and money is such a thing with me.

Let’s take a look at some good ideas!

Mother’s Day Hand Sanitizer

I’m on the ball this year and these are the gifts I’m giving. Shhh, don’t tell the moms at my church.

I found inexpensive hand sanitizer at Bath & Body Works. When I purchased them, they were 5 for $6.00. You can’t beat that price. I went with the Adventure Awaits hand sanitizer sets. They include Vanilla Coconut, Pineapple Colada, Honolulu Sun, Hawaiian Pink Hibiscus & Mango Mai Tai – perfect for spring and summer. So, I loaded up on these babies.

Hand Sanitizer - Mother's Day

This is the perfect FREE gift tag for these hand sanitizers. I don’t have to make gift tags and these are adorable. The glue dots are available on Amazon. If you’ve never used glue dots, order them now! They make attaching small gifts to gift tags so much easier. Where have these been all my life?

Last year, I decided to do chapsticks for all the moms. In my opinion, you can never have too many lip balms. Of course, I had no idea I would have to visit five Walmarts to find enough lip balm sets. I bought every lip balm in all five stores. I was looking for a particular one, but I finally settled for whatever flavors they had in stock.

You’re The Balm Lip Balm Gift Idea

When I gave lip balm to the ladies at my church, I purchased packages of three, dropped them into small zipper bags and stapled a tag to it. Done and done. Those tags were personalized for my church. But I didn’t forget about you.

You're The Balm Photo Card

I’ve made some new tags. These are perfect for the round lip balm. The background is a light pink but my printer is almost out of colored ink. It’s a pale, pale pink that doesn’t show up in the photos. Oops.

You're The Balm Mom Mother's Day Card

I used glue dots (love those things!) to secure the lip balm. Also, I intentionally made the bomb bigger so the black outline can be seen. Download the free gift tag by clicking here >>>> Balm-Mom-Free-Printable

Make sure to use thick card stock to print out your free printables. Enlist your family to help cut out the tags and attach them to the gifts.

I can’t believe that it is almost Mother’s Day already. There’s so many different things that I would love for Mother’s Day. Probably top of the list is anything homemade by my sons. I love a lot of the ideas that you have here also.

A mom who cooks always needs a wooden spoon for so many dishes. I think a little pampering with a pedicure is always in order for mom.

K. Elizabeth April 24, 2019 - 3:22 pm

I wouldn’t mind getting a set of wooden spoons for Mother’s Day. I absolutely love cooking and have been wanting to invest a good set of them. And Bath & Body Works makes the best hand sanitizers! I need to stock back up on those as well.

Lavender foot soak and a pedicure set would be great for my mom. I know she loves aromatherapy these days, and a little pampering for her feet will make her happy.

can not believe that someone has spent a lot of time to share such a great article on the internet. you made my day thanks for that.

Jerrica Barias September 5, 2019 - 12:26 pm

I wanted to send you a very small remark to say thanks a lot over again on the pretty tactics you’ve discussed on this website. This has been so unbelievably generous with people like you to convey easily exactly what a few people could possibly have made available for an electronic book to get some cash for their own end, primarily considering that you could have tried it in case you decided. These points in addition served like a fantastic way to fully grasp that other individuals have the identical dream like my very own to know the truth a little more when considering this issue. I think there are millions of more fun situations ahead for many who examine your site.
